When it comes to posts about hairstyles, long hair and short hair are always the styles which get the most attention. From bobs to lovely long locks – these are the styles which dominate hair styling websites everywhere. However, we think medium hairstyles can be every bit as gorgeous as longer or shorter styles, which is why we’ve chosen to gather some of our favourite medium length hairstyles in one gorgeous post to show off how you can liven up your medium length hair to perfection. Let us know which ones are your favourite!
If your hair is mid-length or medium length, then it occasionally be difficult to know exactly what to do with it. It’s not quite short enough for a low maintenance bob look, but not quite long enough for some of the more elaborate braided hairstyles which have been so popular over the past few seasons. However, the PoPular Haircuts team are here to prove that mid-length hair is the way to go, providing a versatile platform for some seriously amazing hair looks. Here’s our pick of the top medium length hairstyles around.
