Mid to Long-Length Hairstyles

Are you ready for something different but need help styling your shoulder-length tresses? An adorable and playful style requires a wavy lob with face-framing layers!

Medium-length cuts look stunning on all hair textures and suit every facial structure. Below, hair professionals share their favorite medium-length styles that may give you some ideas of where to start styling them.

Asymmetrical Layers

Asymmetrical styles add dimension and personality to a superficial cut, particularly those featuring wavy hair. Asymmetrical cuts look especially striking, with bright pops of color for added interest.

Asymmetric bobs are trendy among those with mid-length hair because of their versatility and flattering appeal. Cyndi Lauper demonstrates how striking this look can be; hers features short sections on one side, long ones on another paired with a deep side part to even their lengths.

LL Cool J’s long asymmetric bob has an Old Hollywood charm. It looks incredibly stunning against his light brown shade.

Asymmetry also looks fantastic with gray hair, which is currently very fashionable. You can add invigorating pops of blue for extra personality with your asymmetrical bob – regardless of which look you opt for, strong styling products will be necessary to keep it in place!

A-Line Lob

An A-Line Lob is ideal for women who desire a sophisticated yet effortless style. Its length can be customized to match your face shape and neckline; medium-density hair textures work great with this hairstyle. Furthermore, its bold lines help define fuller jawlines while simultaneously framing the face more effectively.

Thinner hair types will find that an A-line bob is their ideal style. Your stylist can add separate layers that give your locks more volume. Plus, highlight and lowlight techniques add even more dimension!

Even those with fine, straight hair can still achieve an A-line lob by adding some volume and layering the style with thin pieces to frame their faces beautifully. Dark roots are currently trending, so adding this feature to the class will only enhance its appeal and depth of character.

Old Hollywood Curls

Old Hollywood curls are an ever-popular choice among brides for shoulder-length wedding hairstyles, adding romantic and glamorous style to any shoulder-length wedding style. Created using either a curling iron or pin curl method (the pinning process is more time-consuming but produces longer-lasting curls), once dry, brush out and spray setting spray to help your curls maintain their shape and stay put!

For a romantic look, try styling your hair in a half-up, half-down fashion with sweeping curtain bangs for an ideal mix of retro and contemporary styles that pairs perfectly with a floor-length veil.

Blake Lively, Jessica Chastain, and Lana Del Rey all donned voluminous old Hollywood curls on their wedding days – an ideal look for brides who wish to embrace their inner goddess. Additionally, beach weddings make this style ideal, with its soft waves complementing nature’s beauty perfectly.

Long Layers

Layering long hair is an effective way to add depth and texture without sacrificing too much length. From short, choppy layers that stand out against the rest of your locks to longer cascading layers – long layers can frame faces, and add movement, texture, and volume as needed.

Long layers can be an excellent solution for those with naturally thick hair, as they help thin out any sections that form bulky “shelves” or add excess weight at the ends. In addition, long layers can enhance natural volume to give an additional flattering result.

This layered look is one of the most adaptable, and suitable for any event or special occasion. It looks particularly striking when combined with long side-swept bangs à la Reese Witherspoon and Camila Cabello.
