Evening Hairstyles for Medium Hair

Planning to attend a formal event, corporate party, or cocktail party? Women with medium-length hair sometimes consider it impossible to find an impeccable hairstyle that can hide some facial features and accentuate the others. However, there's a great variety of medium-length evening hairstyles that are perfect for creating a stunning look. Let's take a closer look at the most glamorous options.

Popular evening hairstyles for medium hair 

What's the focal point of a perfect evening look? It's a chic hairstyle! Messy hair pulled into a boring low ponytail will 'kill' a formal attire, even if it is created by such fashion authorities as Stella McCartney and Tom Ford.

Any hair stylist will tell you that the most difficult thing is to create a hairstyle that is easy to do yet looks intricate. For example, you can upgrade your haircut by straightening or curling your hair with a curling iron to get a formal hairstyle.

However, these options are unimaginative and not very flattering for a night out. A flawless evening hairstyle for mid-length hair should:

  • Enhance your beauty;
  • Beautifully complement your evening attire; 
  • Turn heads.

Recent fashion shows proved that excessive details are no longer in fashion. Versatility, chic elegance, and femininity — these are the features that are trending now. Therefore, you should opt for simple yet impressive hairstyles, such as soft curls, different types of buns, topknots, and stylish ponytails. Let's dive into the fashion world to learn about the most eye-catching hairstyles.


You can hardly find a hairstyle as simple as a ponytail. However, if you are a little bit creative, you'll turn an easy hairstyle into an elegant masterpiece that can compete with elegant classic French rolls and smooth buns.

For example, create Hollywood waves or a half-up ponytail. You can also do a bouffant on the top of the head, a crown braid, or thin braids on the sides. To make a hairstyle even more sophisticated, complement voluminous braids or curls with hair accessories like ribbons, rhinestone hair clips, and pearl barrettes.

Bouncy curls or straightened hair pulled into a ponytail also look charming. Perfectly styled hair will match any face shape, including oval, triangle, and square.


Classy sleek buns are the biggest rivals of romantic fluffy buns. Experienced hair stylists can combine them with soft curls, voluminous braids, and knots. Ever-popular bouffant buns or babettes can be adorned with braids, knots, bows, and flowers made of hair.

If you like smooth hairstyles, hair stylists use flat irons and hair straightening spray. Those who admire messy hairstyles use hair products that add volume and wear lovely face-framing bangs.


Most women wear curls at formal events. They are easy to do, last long, and match any evening gown. However, if you have a long face, it's better to add some volume to the roots. On the contrary, a round face will look marvelous with loose waves.

You can turn your curls into a half-up hairstyle, crown braid, loose ponytail, or bun. Retro curls or a waterfall braid can add a touch of glamor to your look.

Hollywood waves

A flawlessly dazzling hairstyle will make your look exquisite and classy. The right styling and volume may visually change your face shape and bring out certain facial features.

Hollywood waves should be big and neat. Frizziness and messiness are not welcome. You can combine vintage waves with side parting, a low braided updo, a messy bun, or braids. In addition, hair accessories, such as tiaras, artificial flowers, headbands, and barrettes, will also help to jazz up your hairstyle.

Hair accessories

Professional hair stylists use various hair accessories based on the fundamental principles of hairstyling. Such details create romantic vibes. You'll agree that sleek buns, ponytails, and braids complemented by satin or rhinestone ribbons, beads, and pearl hairpins are perfect options for a formal party. Flowers in hair add a special touch of glamor to an evening gown.


Classic thin headbands are not enough for creating a splendid evening hairstyle. For this purpose, there's a wide range of options to choose from, such as double, fabric, beaded, flower, lace, and crystal ones.

The main advantage of this hair accessory is that you can wear it with straight and curly hair alike. Plus, headbands look marvelous combined with loose strands, different braids, and buns.

As there are lots of options, it's better to opt for those that match the entire look. A headband should work beautifully in tandem with the outfit and the earrings, necklace, or even a watch.


Flowers may turn simple hairstyles into genuine pieces of art. They can upgrade any evening hairstyle, from a regular half-up ponytail to a braided updo. While choosing the right variant, keep in mind that brunettes should opt for bright colors, and blondes would be best off with pastel shades.

Hairdressers can use fresh flowers preserved with the help of hair spray, however, it's better to choose artificial ones. Fresh flower buds don't last long, and pollen grains can fall off easily, while synthetic flowers look life-like and hardly have any drawbacks.

Medium-length evening hairstyles for girls

Children’s hairstyles are known for their creativity. Soft mid-length hair is easy to style, and this tender age allows you to experiment with volume, braiding, hair clips, headbands, flowers, and other hair accessories.

Here are the most popular hairstyles for little girls:

  • Buns and top knots complemented by strings of pearls or rhinestones, headbands, bows, or flowers;
  • Textured waves and bouncy curls with vivid details;
  • Donut buns, French roll updos combined with claw clips, hair bows, or braids;
  • Different types of braids, including crown braids;
  • Classy net braids.

When it comes to hairstyles for kids, go easy on hairpins and styling products so you won't damage the hair much. Opt for comfy hairstyles that will stay intact during dancing or active games.

Now that you've read our guide to evening hairstyles, we hope that you will be able to make up your mind about the best option of a medium evening hairstyle for you. Feel free to experiment and find your unique style!
