    Medium Length Hairstyles To Try This Spring

    The Medium Length Flip Hairstyle

    Hot medium length hairstyles this season include, curly layered cuts, bobs, shags, choppy layers and don’t forget the bangs!

    Medium length hair can be the most versatile AND the most challenging length of hair to style and manage. Longer than your chin, shorter than your collar-bone, medium length hair has to stand on its own and make a statement, otherwise it can get lost in the neverland of the “betweens”.

    If your hair is medium length, here are some styles you might want to consider for Spring:


    Model with long blonde shag haircut

    Jennifer Aniston made famous the “Friends” shaggy cut oh so long ago, but the beauty of that medium length hairdo is that is has stood the test of time. Universally flattering and relatively easy to style, this cut will work for most face shapes, hair textures, and can even help mask scraggly ends and roots that need to be touched up.  To get this look try side swept bangs and cutting longer layers around the face, leaving length to frame the chin and graze over your shoulders. This look can be achieved with a bit of styling gel and a blow dryer, or try adding volume with some giant velcro rollers or hot rollers.

    Medium length hairstyles also favor one length cuts. Not quite a bob, not quite a full mane, medium length hair looks classic when it frames the face and lands softly above the shoulders. Elle Fanning looks both adorable and sophisticated with this simple medium length haircut. To get her look, towel dry your hair, add some styling gel, mousse or a smoothing creme and then blow-dry with a large round brush. For more volume set with large velcro rollers.  The end result is soft and carefree.

    If you prefer a sleeker look for your medium length hair, thy this elegant look that Nicole Ritchie wears. Long side swept bangs blend into face framing layers. This bob cut hits just between her jaw and shoulders.

    If your hair is curly or wavy you can increase your style options with this layered cut by letting your natural curl fly free.  This soft look for spring is great for both day and evening looks, and will make your medium length hair feel more versatile.  Smooth it or let it go natural, it  has a bit of that 70s vibe which is on trend for spring fashion.

    Blonde model with blunt choppy bangs and layered bob

    Medium length hair can also handle a sharper edge to styling.  These blunt cut bangs and choppy layers add a bad girl element to an otherwise simple layered bob haircut.

    Whether your style is “wash and go” or “the more work the better”, medium length offers a lot of styling options and can work well with busy or laid back lifestyles. And the best thing about mid length hair is you can pull it back in an easy and cooling ponytail once spring is over and the summer heat kicks in.
