Twisted Crown Half Updo Sometimes it’s tricky to create an updo with mid-length locks. If that’s your case, just go with a half up, half down hairstyle. Make two French twists from either side of your head and join them in the middle with bobby pins.
A medium length may set some restrictions on variability of hairstyles, since some updos really look more advantageous on longer lengths. However, with shoulder-grazing hair you can also afford plenty of gorgeous updos which won’t ever give out your actual length.
