Braids are so on-point, but it seems like you're SOL unless you have long, lush locks that cascade all the way down your back, Rapunzel-style.

I'm sure I'm not the only girl with medium length hair who wants to climb aboard the braid-train, am I right?

Well, no worries, my fellow mid-length stalkers, here are some perfectly precious plaits ideal for your not-quite-cascading tresses!2

1. Braids on Braids on Braids

At first glance, this braided 'do might look complicated, but it's not really that hard.

It's a really simple way to get an incredibly intricate-looking updo, and I love the pattern the plaits create in the finished product.

2. The Finished Product Isn't the Only Product

Check out the entire third panel.

The side braid, the gentle tuck, and the double tuck that represents the final style are all gorgeous – and ideally suited to medium-length hair, might I add.

Love that casually crooked part, too!

3. A Braid Cavalcade

I'm not sure if my fingers could ever make this happen, but if you're good at doing hair in general and braiding specifically, I'd love to know how this lovely look turns out.2

It really is pretty, and the different techniques complement each other in a unique way that could work as a casual 'do or a formal style.

4. French Braiding, Illustrated

The French braid is a classic for a reason.2

Wearing it is the easy – and fun – part.

Learning how to do it is a tad more complicated.

Still, you can't go wrong with this timeless technique, plus it's also the ideal base for a wealth of hairstyles.

5. A Casually Braided Knot

This is practically made for shoulder-length hair.

There's no need to worry about miles of length when you end up with an adorable, laid-back updo anyway.

Again, however, this could easily pass for a formal look, as well – hairstyles that do double-duty are always awesome.
