Medium Length Hairstyles: A Constant Trend

Medium Length Hairstyles: A Constant Trend

Not too long and not too short, the medium hairstyle is perfect for just about everyone.

From the straight and limp to the thick and naturally curly, you can be sure that there is a medium hairstyle to suit your unique tastes and hair type.


The popularity of the medium length hair style has never waned, and it remains extremely popular today. In fact, most hair styles that you see can be considered medium hair styles. Just think about the textured lob, the new “Wolfcut” trend or the layered haircut. Most of these styles look their best at a medium length.


There are a lot of reasons why people choose the medium hairstyle over other types of styles. The medium hairstyle is easier and quicker to style than longer hair and it affords more versatility than shorter styles. No matter whether you wear it up or down, the medium hairstyle offers a great deal of variety to the wearer. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Quick and Casual. No matter if your medium length hair style is straight or curly, you can whip it up in a flash to create a simple, casual updo at a moment's notice. Simply pull your medium hair style up into a bun, French twist or ponytail, allowing a few sprigs to escape here and there, and you're done. You can also practice variations of the ponytail and add interest to your medium hair style by changing the amount of hair that you pull through your scrunchie.
  • Funky and textured. Probably the most popular medium hair styles of today feature a lot of textured, creative cutting techniques. By using a combination of scissors and razor, your stylist can turn your medium hair style into a fashion statement complete with wispy layers and interesting movement. I prefer the Sam Villa Swivel Razor.
  • Cute and curled. This medium hair style is extremely easy to accomplish if you have natural curl or a perm adding texture to your medium hair style. If not, you can easily add interest to your medium hair style with hot rollers, tube rollers or a curling iron. Simply, roll your medium hair style, spritz it a little, take it down, run your fingers through your medium length hair style, spray and go. I recommend new Redken  Volume  Maximizer jelly to spray in and style hair with. 
  • Captivating color. The medium hairstyle is perhaps the perfect length of hair in which to try funky and fresh Redken color techniques. From chunky highlight, to face framed custom Blonde Balayage, to ink-dipped tips, make your medium hair style stands out from the rest with interesting color.


As you can see, there are numerous things that you can do to make your medium hair style stand out among your peers. While others are stuck pulling their long tresses up or styling their short locks the same old way, you can quickly change your medium hair style to reflect your mood or the occasion. And the beauty of the medium hairstyle is that almost everything you do will be quick and easy.  When sleeping at night with any new fresh haircut always sleep on 100% Silk Pillowcase. I recommend getting one at
