Medium length hair seems to be one of those points where it’s neither here, nor there. For a lot of women it’s annoying since you can’t seem to do stuff with it like make really cool color statements or make tons of loose waves.
But what a lot of other women love about medium hair is it’s kind of the best of both worlds. You get the length of a longer hairstyle, so you can pull it up into a ponytail for practicality. Or leave it down when you want to look different. You can also play with the parts, or add accessories and style it straight, curly or wavy.
Whichever way you look at it. Whether you’re parked at medium or just passing by on your way to long locks, we have some styling tips that will make the most of your hair length.
At this length point, your cut is most probably a bob. A bob haircut is characterized by having little to no layers and an even cut at the bottom, going around the head. It is no shorter than earlobe length and no longer than your shoulders. You can add blunt or side-swept bangs for even more versatility to your look.
Medium hair length is one of the most understated looks around but unfairly so. Many celebs have sported the look, amongst them Heidi Klum, Taraji P. Henson, Kristin Cavallari, Ashley Olsen, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears and Eva Longoria, just to name a few.
There are plenty of bobs you can choose from, but the most popular right now softly angled/a-line bobs and blunt bobs.
The angled and a-line bob’s main feature is that they’re shorter at the nape than at the jaw line. The Angled bob is almost cut to a pixie in the back–it’s that short–very close to the nape. The A-Line bob is long in the back, but the length is shorter than the front, so from the back of your head the the front your cut would be at less than a 45 degree angle. It’s earliest versions were blunt and shocking; very in-your-face. The style has evolved where it is now softer, almost subtle. This makes for an easier routine as well since you can always just put your hair up in a ponytail without having to worry about an always too short back.
Medium hair doesn’t always mean bob though. You can also have a layered medium cut. This is extremely flattering for thick hair since it thins it out and also for wavy to curly hair. Thin, straight haired girls beware. Unless you want to reach for the volumizing products constantly, think twice about this style.
It can have bangs or not and it makes for beautiful texture when let down. If you have thin hair but are still pining for layers, you want to go for choppy ones that will give the illusion of more hair, not less.
