How to Style Easy Updos for Short to Medium Length Hair
Medium length hair is usually described as being from about jaw length to right above your shoulders. This is a good length because the hair can still be gathered into a ponytail, but it's not so long you have to brush through knots and tangles every night. It is sometimes challenging to find a good updo for medium to short length hair, but there are definitely some great options out there. In fact, I've found the best You Tube videos available to help the search for the perfect updo for medium length hair.

This is a very pretty style. I love the curls and the side look. It really does make her hair appear so much longer. As always you can add a bunch of different cute accessories to this updo.
Super Simple for Shorter to Medium
This is almost too simple. The look would be easy to dress up even more by letting some loose strands fall up front and then curling them for some soft tendrils. I don't really like the hair accessory she chose. I think there are some much better options out there.
Updo for a Shorter Bob
This makes me want to cut my hair! I love this look. The video is a bit long, but the end result is gorgeous. To glam it up some more I would use sparkly bobby pins for the very back. You could also add a headband across the front. So sleek and cute!
Bump With a French Twist, Simple
Here's anpther simple hair do. I think this is more of an everyday updo. Using a fancier clip would dress it up a little more. I like the little knot underneath.
Using a Comb
I love combs. This is really fast and super easy. I would either flip up the bottom hair, or curl a row of corksrew curls across the back. Combs are also good for holding french twists.
Something More Formal
These girls are young and not the best at talking to the camera. I love this look though. It's a lot more formal than the previous styles. I think adding a broach or flower above the ear that the hair is curled over would be beautiful.
This is absolutely beautiful. It makes her hair look longer and fuller. It's also really cute with the headband. For Prom or a wedding you can find headbands with some rhinestones or add pretty combs. This is my favorite look for this length.
