366 Stunning Shoulder Length Medium Hairstyles for Women in 2020

You can wear medium length hairstyles in a number of ways, in a variety of shapes and styles including straight, wavy or curly. You can change them totally on the fly and they won't get in the way and spoil gowns with higher necks or collars. Shoulder length hairdos are also just long enough to pop up in a bun or a twist, without your hairstylist trying to work out what to do with any excess hair. Medium hairstyles vary from geometric shapes and defined lines, and we provide hair information including face shape and hair texture to help you find the perfect medium hairstyle that will look on you best.

Our medium hairstyles include straight, wavy and curly hairstyles.

Medium Straight Hairstyles

A medium straight hairstyle can be worn as an everyday look at work, home, or play. These hairstyles consist of precision cuts, one length looks, varying layer cuts, and razor cuts. Layered and razor cuts will require some styling effort, whereas a one length look relies only on gravity to maintain the hairstyle's shape. Self styling for one length looks saves so much time. For medium styles, where the sides are to the shoulders, the hair can be pulled back for a sleek short appearance or to get it out of the way, or it can be put up to make the look more formal. This hair length is not too short or long!

Medium Wavy Hairstyles

A medium wavy hairstyle can vary from shoulder length graduated layers, to heavy one length looks, and even messy uniform layer cuts. When waves are natural or even artificial (permed hair), casual medium wavy hairstyles are quick and easy to create because the waves and cut determine the shape of the hair. Waves created with curling devices and heat appliances require more time and styling products for hold. The medium length of these hairstyles also enables you to pull/tie your hair back- getting it out of the way or dressing it up more formally.

Medium Curly Hairstyles

A medium curly hairstyle is soft, natural and carefree, with plenty of body that falls into place on its own. Styling generally requires some product to keep the hair settled and styled. Curls have a soft look about them due to their curved nature and soft appearance to the eye.
