Hi, I'm Krysta, and I'm a beauty stylist in Tampa, Florida, and today I'm going to show you how to do some easy elegant hairstyles for medium length hair. For this, you'll need bobby pins and some hairspray and also a curling iron. So, my first step is going to be to take any frizzy pieces that I have and just put a nice curl in them. When I think elegant hairstyles I think red carpet and the first person that I just absolutely love is Jennifer Aniston. So, her hair always looks shiny and beautiful and flowy, and they're always very simple, easy to do hairstyles that she does. So just make sure that when you go in and curl, you're going to start at the base of the hair shaft. You're going to start at the base of the hair shaft and curl it down, hold that curl in there for ten seconds and just to get a little bit of an elongated curl I like to pull my curl kind of down while it's still hot and you can do this with the iron if you still have good tension in the iron or just take your hand afterwards and pull it down and now we're going to do the same thing on this side. Now you can see how I have tension in the iron now that I'm pulling it down and that just creates that really soft wave and same thing here and then I'm going to take this piece of hair and just kind of twist it forward so I'm going to start here and then twist it forward, grab a little section and pull it over, twisting all the way down and then I'm going to take my bobby pin, put one this way and then one crossing over it so essentially it's going to look something like that and there you have it. That is how you do an easy elegant hairdo for medium length hair. The main thing that I used today was my bobby pin. So I hope you can recreate this at home. I'm Krysta. Thank you for watching.
