Medium length hairstyles for thin hair let women with fine hair actually believe they have thick hair. Bob cuts look terrific on naturally fine hair, even more so on a blonde bob, where the illuminating color accentuates layers. The shorter layers around this model’s face add texture and the soft curls keep the style from looking flat. No worries should her hair be naturally straight. A curling iron or hot rollers will easily provide wavy hair. Sides swept styles also make thin hair appear even thicker. She can use a pin to make sure her hair stays tucked behind her ear and/or keep the deep one-sided part. While bobs compliment almost every woman, they look exceptionally great on those in their early twenties and deliver the chic appeal most young people crave.

Women with thick hair are lucky. Dry ends are essentially their only problem, most styles and hairdos turn out well, and they can usually rely on all styling tools to work as expected. Their heavy hair, however, tends to lack movement and can look false, particularly if they use strong hold hair products and limit their cuts to one-length styles. Dimension, shape, and color techniques provide motion and medium length hairstyles for thick hair let hair sway. This bob haircut is a fantastic option. The forward angle and the subtle highlights add body and motility. Wavy hair adds even more bounce. If hair isn’t naturally curly, curling irons, straighteners, and/or sea salt sprays easily attain the spectacular uneven effect.

Medium Length Hairstyles With Bangs

Medium length hairstyles with bangs let women try out a broad range of styles that are easy to maintain and look marvelous on nearly every hair color and texture and virtually every shape face. This long bob haircut combines long layers, wispy bangs, and relaxed scruffy curls. It’s a winning combination that lets women of all ages enjoy themselves. It’s contemporary and classy, yet fun and free. The blonde ombre hair requires minimal touch-ups, so it’s just right for today’s busy women. The thin wisps that drape over this model’s forehead look terrific on her oval face. She can wear almost any style bangs – straight across her forehead or off to the side. Uneven or choppy bangs look good on round and square faces, though women with round faces should stay away from thick, blunt cut bangs. A round brush and blow dryer will add extra volume to bangs.


One of the new medium length hairstyles 2018 is a variation of the short to medium hair trends. It’s the lob. The lob is, in fact, a longer bob. The length falls between the chin and shoulders or just below the shoulders (a bob goes down to the tips of the ears to just above the shoulders). Lobs are ideal for those wishing to grow out their hair from a short cut or for those with long hair who wish to make a change, but don’t know if they’ll like a drastic one. Lobs look extraordinary on practically all hair types (thick, thin, straight, or curly), flatter mostly every woman (young, middle-aged, mature), and require little attention. This 90s blonde look represents one of the latest haircuts for the young crowd. Loose curls, which some product or a styling tool can easily provide, add extra motion and dimension.

Bob cuts allow hairstylists to give every woman a unique and fabulous cut that’s unmistakably her own. They can easily modify the angles to compliment each and every woman. The cut will preserve its shape for several months. So anyone, from a hard-working student to a busy working mother will appreciate its ease and style. The deep side part and long side bangs on this model give her a cutting-edge elegance that’s all her own. The balayage, which the hairstylist creates by sweeping on some color, adds even more distinction with a stunning sun-kissed highlight. It also requires little maintenance and adds even more depth to this trendsetting style. As you can see, color and texture let short to mid length hairstyles share the modern-day pleasures their longer counterparts enjoy.

Shoulder length hair offers endless possibilities, mainly where the bob is concerned. For each choice, there’s an opposite option. A woman could choose a sleek, symmetrical style with a middle part or a tousled, uneven cut, with a side part. She could opt for smooth, straight ends or light bouncy curls. With product and styling tools, she can oftentimes have it all. This shaggy, layered bob looks even younger and fresher in golden blonde. She can let the ends fall straight or loosely curl them with styling tools or sea salt spray into beach waves for extra bounce and body. The side part with a sweeping fringe gracefully frames her face and emphasizes her striking eyes and lips and the tuck behind her ear adds volume.

It begins with dark roots, goes full purple, then lightens into lavender and pink at the bottom. It’s simply stunning.

  1. Buns. Buns are among the easiest updos that everyone can pull off by herself. And in case medium length hairstyles for thin hair are what you are currently searching, a bun will require some effort to pull off. The size of the bun will demonstrate that your tresses lack body. However, you can easily hide it by backcombing. Thus, the size of the bun will be enlarged with the added volume. As simple as that!
  2. Knots. A modern knot tends to be messy and loose. To get a high or low imperfect knot, you just need to lift the hair from the roots by teasing it. Then you can add some loops by pulling at strands here and there.
  3. Braids. These days you can rarely see a casual updo without any braids. These elements are quite welcome in up-to-date updos, whether they are in the spotlight or act as auxiliary elements.
  4. Styles that involve several components. There are times when keeping it plain is not your intention. The fanciest styles consist of multiple components and combine braids and knots, braids and buns, curls and twists, etc.

And as examples, here you can observe some cool and cute styling options.
