20 Cute & Lively Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair

Feeling bored with your hair, but not sure how to pep it up? Read on to discover the best new lively hairstyles for medium length hair to freshen up your image and banish boredom!

Basic cutting

Coarse, wiry and naturally curly hair should be razored for an easy care shaggy style that’s completely new and different.   Medium-length coarse hair needs to have the ends cut into long tapering texture taking away that bothersome thickness that always makes the ends flare out!

Razor-cutting can also sculpt your hair by thinning out dense sections to create a curved shape that is very flattering and will not need a lot of styling after washing.

Extreme asymmetrical bobs

Medium length asymmetrical bobs are a sharp and smart look that is also youthful and trendy – for any age, too! To be totally up-to-date for this season, choose an asymmetric bob that has an extra-large contrast between the long and short lengths!

So, you could have your hair shaved into the neck at the nape, with the line moving down to almost shoulder-length at the front. Other edgy, asymmetric bobs have one side cut very short around the ear and the other side reaching down to a length between the jaw line and shoulder.

Unique and fresh

And then you have a very unique look, which you can vary by curling or waving the longer hair. Set against the super-short sections you can create a fabulous contrast in the texture and movement for a truly lively look.

Shaggy hairstyles for medium-length hair

Another of the latest cuts for a hot, contemporary look is the shag cut. The shag is also a great casual style for thick or wiry hair and if you prefer a relaxed hairdo that’s meant to look a little wild, the shag is a really cute and lively hairstyle for medium length hair.

You can make it as edgy as you like by varying the tapering on the tips and getting some funky highlights to add a splash of bright copper, caramel, gold or honey. If you’re going all out for a stunning, eye-catching new look consider a black and blonde hairstyle or rainbow highlights in fuchsia pink or this year’s trendiest colour – purple!

Fine hair – the wavy layered shoulder-length bob

Fine hair should always be layered to make it easier to get some volume around the head, and you can pep it up with a blunt-cut fringe and the latest choppy, exaggerated layers, if you have medium-thick hair.

If your fine hair is a little thin as well, this year’s obsession with waves is great news for you! Use a no-heat method to create broken and almost haphazardly placed waves around the top or sides of a layered bob, to add volume and really liven it up!
