  • Long bob with a middle part
  • Middle parted bangs

Where haircuts are concerned, sitting on the fence is by no means a bad thing. Medium-length hair is the perfect solution for anyone considering a new cut, with the styling possibilities of longer hair combined with the manageability of something shorter.

Best of both worlds

Mid-length locks are also a great idea for those of you who don't want to commit to a short cut as they'll grow out a lot faster than a pixie or a bob if you change your mind. A shoulder-grazing cut is also a much less frustrating goal than Rapunzel hair for anyone who is growing their hair out.

Easy styles to try

Tousled waves
This undone look is almost as easy to achieve as the effortless-looking results suggest. All you need to do is spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout, then twist and blow-dry your hair in large pieces.

Sleek middle part
Keep the middle theme going with a sharp center part! Stay frizz-free with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray, then part your hair with a tail comb.

If you're a real 90s kid at heart, try a piecey (read: grungy if you want it to be) look. Rough-dry your hair, then scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends and mid-lengths to get just the right amount of strand separation. Just take care not to overload your hair.

What do you think? Would you go for a mid-length cut?
