Medium-length hairstyles: everything you need to know

Medium-length haircuts offer the best of all worlds when it comes to styling. The right mid-length hairstyle offers all the body and movement of a longer cut with the manageability of something shorter. On top of that, they're just plain cool.

Wavy bobs, shags and textured layered hairstyles are all huge trends this season and we have the lowdown on all of them!

Curly hair works really well with medium-length styles. They can be styled to make the most of all that natural texture without overwhelming the rest of your look.

Shoulder skimming haircuts are also great for anyone with fine hair. With a few carefully blended layers, a medium-length cut can boost volume and add shape to your mane.

If you're looking for a cute hairstyle that goes really well with bangs, a 'do that is neither too long nor too short could be perfect for you! Whether you want a blunt fringe, something wispy and whimsical, or curved bangs, a medium-length cut will help draw attention straight to them.

We've already mentioned layers, but they go hand in hand with medium-length looks - and no, that doesn't have to mean a 'Rachel' cut. By collaborating with your stylist, you can get a haircut that's thinned out in all the right places with the volume enhanced wherever you want it to be. Just remember to take plenty of photos with you to the salon, and be clear about what you're going for.

What do you think? Could a medium-length cut be your next hairstyle?
