30 Stylish Medium Length Hairstyles

You ever get that feeling that your hair is too long but then you cut it and now it’s too short? You can’t really agree with yourself whether you’re going to make it longer so you can have any hairstyle. But long hair requires a lot of care and attention. And some days it is too hot to keep them down for so long. A short hair, although very cool, may not really give you the diversity of hairstyles that you wanted. So here’s the best choice: cutting it just about right, medium length hairstyles. Not too long and not too short.

Now how long is medium length? Well it’s basically from your shoulders to a couple inches down. See? Not so long but definitely not a short length. You can still have any design that you want. It also frames the face perfectly so it likely suits any shape of faces. Just doing a bit of experiment with the hairstyle could bring you a smaller face or you can have it tied up so you would look a bit bigger. So besides being able to bring a new hairstyle to the table everyday, you could make it work to suit your type of face.

The medium Hairstyle for Everyone

Another amazing thing about a medium haircut is its ability to suit almost anyone. Aside from any facial shape, this hair length is also perfect for kids, teenagers, young professionals or older women. Everyone could enjoy a great hair day with this perfect cut.

And speaking of cuts, a medium hair length could also be cut in various styles and trends. If you want a simple straight cut, med-length works wonders. If you want a bob? Don’t worry, you can have it midway as well. Even in hairstyles, whether you want a sleek ponytail to those elegant curls, you’ve got a whole selection of looks to choose from. And you can instantly go from girly to formal to if you want. All with the freedom given by a medium cut.

Don’t be afraid to try any hairstyle you like. You can make it go with your personality or with the outfit you’ll be wearing. Plus the biggest advantage of having a med-length cut is that when it still feels a bit long for you or you wanted it shorter, you have the freedom to chop off bits of your hair until you finally get the look you want. It will give you more chances to rock and experience.

  1. My hair has gotten really long and it has been a very long time since I last had it styled. I definitely am looking for a new look and so I really like your first example with the medium length and the curls. However, if my hair isn’t naturally curly, how do I go about getting that look? I suppose that the girl in the photo used some sort of curler, but I would like to know specifics.
