Will this be one of your best medium length hairstyles?
For no-makeup, outdoor girls, the ‘wet and wild’ look is part of a trend to bring back the gelled, ‘wet-look’. On the other hand, it’s also being presented as a glamour look, on models looking ‘untamed and free’ under a waterfall!

Many of the wet-look hairstyles show the hair gelled and styled straight back from the forehead in a look that, to my mind, is not the most flattering way to show off your lovely hair!

Ultra-modern medium length hairstyles
And on the third hand, (as it were!) it’s alsobeing presented as an ultra-modern look! So, if you apply ‘wet-look’ styling crème to a medium length hairstyle with a light wave in the sides and a contemporary straight-across fringe, you might get away with it – if you’re under-25!

Therefore, it won’t be on my personal list of the best medium hairstyles! I just keep seeing the image of a business-man somewhere with an enormous warehouse full of hair-gel left over from the ‘80’s, who’s desperate to sell it off!

My pick of the best medium hairstyles is really the opposite of flat, gelled hair, because soft volume is going to be the real winner in the best medium hairstyles forthis year! The centre-parting with layered sides long enough to sweep the shoulders is the basic cut and one that can be infinitely varied!

1960’s to the fore
The 1960’s is going to be a key retro-look – you only have to look at the latest spectacle frames for men and women to see they are firmly based on 1960’s frames! So I believe we will be seeing more of the feminine flick-up styles and the super-cool, lightly bouffant half-up styles that always look fabulous on medium length hair.
