The medium hairstyle is among the most popular hair lengths sported by both the common woman and the celebrity diva alike. The medium length hair in fact is a compromise between the long hair and the short hair, offering up advantages of both the worlds of the short haired woman and the long haired woman.
The woman with medium length hair has a wide range of styling options from which she can choose. Some of the more popular haircuts of the woman with the medium length hair revolve around the layered haircut. This is in fact one of the most versatile haircuts that a woman could get. Quite simply, it can compliment almost any type of face and can be very easily re-invented for a different look. With razor cut layers, the flipped out layers would look ever so chic and sassy, while the graded layer would take the years of an older woman’s age. In addition, the layered hairstyle is one that can be very easily swept up into a simple ponytail or brushed open for a more playful look. It is very important for young professional women to find a hairstyle that can very easily change from the professional look to the club look. The layered hairstyle does this very sleekly and smoothly.
The bob is another popular medium length cut, as is the shag. These styles are very popular among the chic and confident women, though not necessarily so among the more professional or mature women. Although both these styles include some layering, they are difficult to pull up into the more severe looks required on the job, and therefore not acceptable in some professional professions.
But in addition to the cut, the medium hairstyle is also versatile in that its range of textures can be easily transformed into the other so that you never get bored with your hairstyle or run out of styles for those different events. The curly hair can be straightened and the straight hair can be curled; the frizzy hair can be tamed and the tame hair can be teased; the wavy hair can be crimped or the crimped hair can be made wavy – the options are endless with the medium length hair. You can even choose if you want a semi-permanent change or a temporary one or even a semi-permanent one. Curling irons and ceramic straightening irons, even traditional curlers are all temporary means of changing one’s hair texture for a single special event or outing.
On the other hand, chemical treatments are more permanent or sometimes can give a semi-permanent effect. Chemical treatments can be used on any type of hair to get it to the desired texture – the curly, wavy or frizzy hair can be relaxed to give the straight hair, or the straight hair can be permed to give the curly hair. Some semi-permanent options include straw curls and temporary relaxer treatments.
