25 Medium Length Hairstyles
Claire Danes wears long blond layers so well.
I love this look of shorter in the back and long layers on the side. Not to mention the color is stunning!
Jennifer Aniston, the actress who will always been known for her amazing hair. She is sporting long, straight layers that taper her face perfectly. The beachy highlights and side part make this hairstyle a great choice for everyday. I’ve achieved a similar color with this product.
This hairstyle is similar to Jenifer Aniston’s pictured above, but with a little more tousle and wave to it.
This is one of my favorite looks on Rachel McAdams. It’s longer than a traditional bob, with side swept bangs for a dramatic look. This style frames her face perfectly and makes her eyes pop.
Here’s another tousled look with some gorgeous waves. I love how the hair around the face is a lighter blond than the rest. Just stunning.
This style on Taylor Swift is perfect for those of us who have naturally wavy hair. You can just let it do its thing! She’s wearing her medium length hair with full bangs.
Here’s another wavy hair look with side swept bangs on actress Kristen Bell. If you already have some natural wave in your hair, this is a very easy look to achieve. If your hair is straight, you can use a curling wand to get some beachy waves.
Have you thought about blunt bangs before? This straight medium hairstyle could potentially drag your face down, but the bangs give it some lift and help frame the face perfectly.
Jessica Alba knows how to wear ombre right. With subtle waves, a middle part and subtle lightening of the hair, this is one style I definitely want to try. She looks sophisticated enough for the red carpet, but it’s casual enough for every day wear. For these larger waves, take a large curling iron like this one and only leave in your hair for a few seconds.
Here’s another shoulder length style with ombre. This is a straight and choppy style with short layers in the back and face framing layers in the front.
This hairstyle features a more choppy look. To achieve this, leave the very ends of your hair out of the curling iron so it does not curl under. Pull the curling iron through your hair and stop right before you get to the end, and then curl. Only leave it in for a few seconds and then tousle with your fingers to create light waves.
I absolutely love this cut and color. I prefer my hair curled and this is perfection. I also love the lighter color around the face and darker throughout.

Whether Cameron Diaz’s hair is long, short, medium, straight or curly – she always looks great. This medium length with waves and bangs is perfect on her.
