Medium haircuts are always popular with women, and or good reason! They’re easy to care for, easy to style, comfortable, and versatile. Most medium haircuts fall at around shoulder level, but some may be just above or just below the shoulders. They aren’t too long or too short, so they aren’t as heavy as long haircuts, and there’s still enough hair to pull back. A perfect choice for anyone who wants shorter hair but still wants to rock a spunky ponytail or pretty updo!
Medium haircuts also work with just about any face shape and hair type, from thick to thin, curly or straight. There are lots of medium length haircut ideas to choose from, and picking one can be difficult. Talk to your stylist about what works best for you, and take a look at some of these amazing and modern medium haircuts for a little inspiration!
