Mid-Length Layered Hairstyles

Medium-length layered hairstyles look beautiful on both wavy and straight strands, creating a classic yet contemporary style for women of all ages and facial structures. Add an attractive long fringe for an updated look, or go for Rachel from The Big Bang Theory’s look for added versatility. Layered haircuts will increase the volume and thickness of your locks, making them thicker. Choose a shaggy style or create bedhead-effect curls by layering hair in waves or choppy layers.

1. Classic Layers

Layers not only add volume and fullness to your hairstyle, but they can also add texture, movement, and a light-catching finish. No matter if your locks are thick or fine strands – there are various styles you can try with medium-length hair!

Want a sophisticated yet contemporary look that will complement your features? Frame framing layers may be just what’s needed! Cut and positioned carefully, they create an eye-catching framing effect around your face that draws focus to specific features while softening others for an exquisite result.

Do you have long, blunt hair that needs some added dimension? Swoopy layers could be just what the doctor ordered! Beginning in the middle and falling towards the ends, these swoopy layers create an eye-catching feminine silhouette reminiscent of royalty! For best results, pair this style with either a center part or deep side part – for added impact, add bangs for an eye-catching finish!

2. Choppy Layers

Add choppy layers to your mid-length layered hairstyle for a stylish yet grungey style. To get it right, have your stylist create this one – as it requires precise craftsmanship! Use products that won’t damage strands while creating a natural-looking texture (such as R Co Rockaway Salt Spray ($26).

Add choppy layers around your face for framing. This look will elongate your features and is especially eye-catching on women with round or square faces. Additionally, it works wonders on thin or fine hair, adding structure and volume.

Enhance the drama of your choppy layered style with golden blonde balayage highlights for an instant, effortless style that looks like you just got up this morning looking so stunning. Use volumizing serum on the roots for extra lift; finish your look with side partings and side fringes for an office-appropriate style!

3. Textured Waves

Feathered layers offer the ideal look for casual girls’ night outings and professional office settings: movement-enhancing beachy waves that provide movement for medium-length locks while adding texture for effortless medium-length styles. It’s also great if your strands need volume without changing their length.

If you have a dark hair color, pair it with soft and textured balayage to add dimension. The lighter shades complement each other to create an airy and fresh appearance, and it’s layers and face-framing highlights make this style Insta-worthy as well.

If you want a sleek and polished style, opt for straight and sleek styles like this layered haircut with long layers that frame your face-framing fringe and center parting. Perfect for work or a date. Additionally, the layers have slight shag to them for dimension without appearing too full or thick.

4. Classic Natural Layers

Long layers add structure without making the style too choppy in medium-length hair and without making it appear unruly or chaotic. They’re great for accentuating features and framing your face; ask your stylist not to put them above the jawline! For added texture, try adding long, soft layers that swoop around your face for a swoop – this also works if you prefer bangs!

Add soft waves to the face-framing layers for a sophisticated finish, then complete your look with a deep side part for heart-shaped faces. This style will highlight your cheekbones, jawline, and forehead for maximum impact!

Add subtle highlights or even an ombre effect (popular among brunettes) to your layered hairstyle to change its style and add an elegant, sultry tone. Make sure to use moisture-boosting shampoo and conditioner, followed by heat protectant spray, before blow-drying your locks to achieve this look.
