15 Easy Hairstyles For That Awkward In-Between Hair Length

I imagine that everyone has her own personal awkward hair length. My awkward grown-out lob is obviously different than someone’s overgrown pixie cut (though actually, that sounds kind of cool. Can we make that a trend for spring?). But for me, the mid-range situation I’m working with right now is my hair-length nightmare. It’s been almost seven months since I cut my long wavy hair into an angled lob, so it’s not all that surprising that it’s currently an overgrown disaster. (Luckily, I’m getting a new cut and some exciting color this Friday, so stay tuned!)

But over the past couple of months, the frustration of this length has sent me deep into the Pinterest archives to figure out what on earth to do with this mess. When my hair is in good shape, I usually just straighten or curl depending on what it feels like doing when I wake up, then leave it down. When your hair is overgrown, leaving it down isn’t really an option. At least for me, it gets so bottom-heavy it looks more like a triangular hair hat than anything else. So, I had to get creative. Here are my favorite (easy) hair tutorials for our awkward medium-length hair.

1. Twisted Chignon


This chignon from The Headband Project makes me feel like a fancy lady. Although I’m still working on getting my twists as flawless as she does, overall the look is pretty easy to pull off.

20 Easy No-Heat Summer Hairstyles For Girls With Long Hair

Summer heat is great for beach and pool days, and for your spirit – but for hair? Not so much. Between the humidity, random thunderstorms, and feeling hot in general, my hair is a total mess from June until the middle of September. I chopped it off a few months ago, so it’s not that long right now, but last year I was dealing with a LOT of hair… and it’s super uncomfortable.

Sure, the heat is bad for any type of hair, but girls with long hair have it extra hard. Hair makes you hot, especially when it’s thick and heavy and all over the place. You could just put it up in a messy bun or ponytail, but what if you’re feeling something more fun and unique? There are endless options on Pinterest and beauty blogs all over the Internet, and I’ve put together some of the cutest and easiest tutorials I’ve seen – and none of them involve extra heat! Here are 20 easy summer hairstyles for girls with long hair that will take you to the beach and beyond:
