If you bear medium length hair, then you can try all the aforementioned simple updo hairstyles for long hair as well as short hair. Apart from the above mentioned long hairstyles, here are a few cute easy hair updos for medium length hair.

Half Updo
As the name suggests, a half updo concentrates on partly free and partly tied hair strands. It is the reason why you should always perform such hairstyles with clean and freshly washed hair. Once the hair gets dry, untangle it and apply hair spray on it, so that it gets more manageable (in case you have too silky, wavy or curly hair). Then, with help of a curling iron, create small sections of your hair. Once you get done with curling them, start fixing small curled strands to head, with help of the bobby pins or simple hair pins. Curl ends of those fixed hair strands. Now repeat the same procedure with the rest of the hair strands and secure then one besides the other. You can decorate this simple hair updo for medium length hair, with a few elegant hair accessories and you are ready!

Curly Updo
If you are in search of some cute curly hair updos, then you can try this easy updo hairstyle for short hair. This is one of the best updos for weddings, if your hair is too short and couldn't be tied into a pony or any other fancy updo hairstyle. To do this hairstyle with straight hair, first you have to curl the ends of the hair with hair gel. Then, pull the front hair back and secure them at the back of the head, just below the crown. You need to use bobby pins or narrow pins for that. Then, take hair strands from both the sides of your head and secure with bobby pins. Then, collect all your hair from the nape to the crown and secure them with bobby pins. Since you have secured hair from all sides of the head, this will leave free hair in the center of the head. Take all the free hair, twist them outward and secure them with hair spray or pomade!

As I said earlier, there are numerous simple updos that can be performed for short, long as well as medium hair. On this note, I conclude this article. I hope the instructions above were found comprehensive!
