Medium hairstyles for women are the rage in fashion today. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at today’s page 3 section and you’ll know what we mean. From Taylor Swift to Selena Gomez to our very own international rock star Priyanka Chopra, every single one of these divas flaunts their medium layered hairstyles unabashedly.
So the first question that inevitably comes to our minds is that why have a medium length hairstyle to begin with?
The answer is very simple. Medium hairstyles vouch for the fact that it is long enough to be feminine but short enough to be maintained properly. Of course we women absolutely adore our long locks and short fringes but let’s be honest over here. How many of us with our hectic schedule throughout the day can actually manage to take care of everything along with our precious hair?
The secret lies in choosing a haircut which is at once gorgeous, gives your face a smooth and sharp shape and not to mention is relatively easier to maintain. Medium length hairstyles convey all of this and hence the increasing popularity.
In one of our last articles, we had discussed at length about the trendy medium hairstyles for women. While we love our wavy haired sisters just as much this time we wanted to focus on our sisterhood of curly haired beauties.
Let us tell you something which all of us know and think. Curly hair is divine! Just imagine having a head full of curls, the bigger they’re, the sexier they’ll be. Naturally curly hair gives you an exotic look which all of us sought after at the end of the day.
But having and maintaining a head full of curls is not easy. Women with curly hair often receive a lot of flak because curls are a bit harder to style and therefore maintain. Which is why it is very easy to have a love n’ hate relationship with your curly locks.
What we easily seem to forget is that naturally curly hair has a splendid texture. It has a naturally fabulous and effortless style about it which is at once unique and adorable. Unfortunately though many women fail to understand the techniques behind maintaining such gorgeous sets of hair and hence more often than not, cut it short or worse still straighten their curls out of frustration.
Why is curly hair harder to maintain?
Curly hair generally takes a longer period, around a day or so to dry off. After a morning shower it’s easy for women to be called a wet sheepdog because of their wet curls.
Blow drying is another different ball game altogether. It is never easy to find a diffuser which can help you to dry your curls without making you looking like a Christmas tree. Once the curls are washed and then blow dried, your hair tends to become frizzy than usual and hence difficult to maintain.
