Not everybody can grow their hair very long for various reasons. Some women have extremely fine hair that the same time also very little hair, making it difficult to grow here are past their shoulders. Fine and sunny here starts to look stringy and very “sparse” when grown past the shoulder. On the other hand, some women have extremely thick (as in a lot) hair, and this can make it difficult to style or control. It also makes it extremely hot and uncomfortable in the summer months. Then of course there is the very short, or pixie haircut. Unfortunately, not everyone can pull off this particular hair style.
And this is exactly what makes medium length hair styles very popular. It’s the perfect in between styled that falls beautifully between long and short, making it just as versatile as long hair to style, but without the hassle of dealing with matters of hair in the heat, or controlling it on windy days.
The great thing about a medium length hair style, is that it is very well suited to most face shapes, and where long hair is better suited to younger woman (from childhood all the way up to middle age), medium length hair can be worn by any woman of any age and be pulled off beautifully.
The visual difference between long, medium and short hair is that short hair is considered something that cannot be pulled back and up into a ponytail, where is medium and long hair can. Medium hair length usually falls anyway from about an inch above the shoulder to just below the shoulders. Anything longer than that is considered long hair.
Medium length hair styles are super easy to style
Medium length hair styles are a lot more visually interesting than either short or long. Women can go from a super sleek bob to a pin straight textured look, and pretty much anything in between. The classic “baby head” is far easier to achieve with a medium hair style than it would be with a short or long hair style. The use of several different kinds of products from styling wax to moose and hair spray can create hundreds of fun and interesting hair styles to sophisticated and classic. You can also choose to style your hair with a good flat iron which you can use to straighten or even curl your locks.
For a more edgy look, consider having a “piecey” hair cut which allows for a lot of body and movement with plenty of choppy layers. With a hair style like this, using a small amount of product simply worked into the hair and slightly tousled will create that perfect windblown effect. This is style can also be given a lot of volume with a curling iron. The length of the hair is perfect for curls because there is no extra length to weigh down the curls and drag the curl down, eventually flattening the hair style. This is hair style holds cool beautifully. It can also be flat iron and into a sleek and more sophisticated as well, proving the versatility of this type of hair style.
Medium length hair styles can be worn with or without bangs
Bangs adds a little bit of pizzazz an edge to the look and is perfect for just about everybody. Wear your bangs a little longer, just skimming your eyelashes for a more sultry effect. Or try a feathery bang for a more relaxed and faithful feel. For a little bit more versatility, maybe opt for a slightly longer and side swept bang. The longer bangs are easier to pull back into a “proof” to add a bit of volume to the top of the head, and the style is also great way to give you the option of pulling your hair off your face without having to pull all your way back.
As with long hair, having medium length hair can also be easily transformed into a long locks with a few strategically placed clipped in hair extensions. Wearing hair extensions is far easier to blend with your natural hair if your natural hair is styled with layers. Layered hair is far easier to blend into extensions than a blunt hair style. Although, a blonde hair style is not entirely impossible to pull off with extensions. Simply call both your hair and your extensions to “blend” your real hair with your fake.
And so, while having long hair might be a lot of fun, and very short pixie cuts are extremely cute, having the option of either going slightly shorter (your own natural medium length hair style) or going long (clipping hair extensions) is far more fun and a lot more versatile with a medium length hair cut.
