5 Special Occasion Style Ideas For Medium Hair

We recently blogged about the sudden surge in medium length hairstyles and how they are on trend to be the hottest styles of the fall/winter season.

As always, there is a lot of concern that hair is less versatile the shorter it gets.  Longhaired beauties worry they won’t be able to style their tresses in as many ways if they cut it to a medium length, especially for a special occasion.

We’ve pulled together a few special occasion hairstyles on our favorite medium haired celebrities to show you that mid-length hair is indeed versatile hair with styles that can work for anything from a date night to a wedding.  Happy styling!
