How to Style Your Medium-Length Layered Hair

Medium-length layered hair is quite versatile. While the soft layers help to add or reduce volume from the mane, the length is just right to try out a variety of hairstyles. If you have medium-length hair that is trimmed in layers, here are a few chic ways to style it:

Tousled Wavy Look

This medium-length hairstyle works for so many reasons! By adding a wavy texture to the layers, you lend plenty of movement and dimension to your mane. This hairstyle can be dressed up or down to suit your mood, outfit or occasion!

To create a tousled, wavy hairstyle with your mid-length, layered hair, spritz your tresses generously with some tousle waves hairspray, twist individual sections and blow-dry them while holding on to the ends. Once dried, scrunch your hair with your fingers and spritz it with some hairspray to set the pretty, wavy texture for longer wear.

Wear your tousled waves loose, create a half-up ponytail or twist and pin back your face-framing hair section (as shown in the image above) for a quick and easy hairstyle upgrade.

Pretty Curls

Make your medium-length hair look vibrant and voluminous by adding curls to the layers. This hairstyle looks quite feminine and romantic and is best worn loose.

To style your mid-length hair with curls, work in a small quantity of elastic curling mousse through your mane and twist small chunks of hair on a medium-barreled curling iron. Once the ringlets are formed, allow them to set for some time and then break them up gently with your fingers for a more natural-looking finish. Mist your curls with some strong hold hairspray and you're good to go!

Retro Hair

Retro hairstyles have made a big comeback this season; why not try one out with your medium-length layered hair for a glam event? Create a vintage hairstyle with a voluminous quiff and steal the limelight at any party!

Mist the roots on the top of your head with some high-lift creation hairspray; the product will give an instant boost to the strands and prep them for styling. Using a fine-toothed comb, tease the lower layers of hair in this section to build volume for the quiff; spritz some strong-hold hairspray to make the back-brushed hair stay put. Smooth over the top layers of hair over the teased section and set your retro quiff with a final spritz of strong-hold hairspray.

As a final addition to your retro hairstyle, curl the ends of your layered hair on a medium-barreled curling iron and give it a beautiful finish.
