Long, short, blond, brunette, wavy, or straight; there are so many hairstyles out there, sometimes it can be tough to settle on just one. But, we only have one head of hair, so one style at a time, it is. Fortunately, there’s a new look on the block currently having it’s time in the salon seat. Once a choice cut for those indecisive people who couldn’t choose between long hair or a short crop, medium length hairstyles have recently become the go-to choice for those seeking both style and versatility. No longer are they simply a straight cut just below your shoulders. Oh no; now they are cut on an angle for movement, layered for extra texture and styled with curls and waves. All sorts, then. With that in mind, here are 4 IDEAL medium length hairstyles if you’re looking for something new.
ELONGATED CHOPPY BOB
This is a super trendy haircut with a laid-back attitude that we adore; a way of saying “medium-long hair, don’t care”. Here, the shortest hair nears the neck with gradual elongation towards the front, offering something in between a short and long hairstyle. Choppiness enhances texture and is an easy way to add points of interest to your hairstyle, effortlessly.
WAVY BOB WITH DISCONNECTED TIPS
If you’re looking for a low-maintenance hairstyle for medium length hair, you can’t go wrong with a wavy bob with disconnected tips. This relaxed style can be achieved by styling your hair with texture twists or beachy waves. The disconnected tips or layering offers a look which is unkempt but in the best possible way, enhancing the texture and volume of your haircut and offering lots of breezy movement and motion.
ONE-LENGTH MEDIUM HAIR-CUT DIP DYED
A simple shoulder length blunt cut is perhaps the most versatile of all medium length hairstyles. A one length style can be parted on either side, at the middle or down. Consider a dip-dyed look loved by A-listers; an ombre or sombre style on medium length hair has a wonderful transitional effect but doesn’t require the heavy dip-dye maintenance of shorter styles.
LOB IT OFF
What’s a lob we hear you ask. The answer? A cut where the length is between long hair and a bob cut. The lob is cut just above the shoulders, at shoulder level or just below – in other words the ideal medium length haircut. Lobs are the one cut that somehow flatters nearly all hair types and face shapes. We adore a lop with balayage colouring; – a subtle style which give softer, less noticeable regrowth lines rather than traditional highlights.
