You Love It MEDIUM

If you’re rockin’ a medium-length hair cut, you know you’ve got versatility for days! Pop in a few curls to make your cut look shorter, or pin it back for easy chic-ness. If you love it medium, check out the looks below to stir up your next style idea.


Fine hair is amplified with a bold red-brown color. Healthy shine radiates from roots to ends sealed in lightweight smoothness, allowing the short cut to standout with a personality of its own.

Straight across bangs paired with a shoulder-length chop convey informal assertiveness. Natural highlights keep the look bright and sunny while the bangs bring attitude at the eye line.

It’s not always about touchably soft texture, and this attention-grabbing gaze is here to prove that. Gritty volume builds at the base as big natural curls are sprinkled throughout. A blunt end seals the look with intentional structure.

Medium cuts can have fun with layers too, just take a look at this low-maintenance style. Blonde tresses flirt with the collarbone and long bangs dance around the chin emphasizing feminine features.

A flirty cut is tossed over to one side with curved ends blown out away from the face. One side modestly tucked behind the ear allows the other side to play up the sass with uninhibited placement.
