Medium Length Hairstyles Picture Gallery 1
Old Hollywood aside, in today's medium length hairstyles come in a wide variety looks, with most of them lending themselves to great movement and bounce.
Medium haircuts range from just below the chin, to resting on the shoulders. For this reason the weight line of the hairstyle is unlikely to fall anywhere that it could emphasize a poor facial feature. Thus, medium haircuts can be worn by literally every face shape. The only caveat there is that if you are somewhat challenged in the neck department, you don't want to chose a medium hairstyle that rests on the shoulder. This will only make an already short neck look even shorter.
The advantage to medium hairstyles is that they offer so many looks with the same haircut by simply styling them differently. Medium hairstyles are also easy to pin up for a formal dinner, or toss in a scrunchie when heading to the gym or hanging around the house.
The disadvantages are three fold. After five to six weeks the structure begins to fall apart and the style losses its wow factor, so salon visits won't be infrequent. Depending on the hairstyle that you choose, medium hairstyles can require more styling time that any other hairstyle length, and get a little pricey in the styling aide department. Lastly, if you color your hair, outgrowth will show very quickly and your salon visit will have to include refreshing your hair color and getting the outgrowth under control.
