Back in the day when getting a haircut, the big question has always been long or short—as if there's no middle ground. But with the rise of the lob and shoulder-length hair, when it comes to your hair game, there is always a middle ground. So if you're afraid to go short but have grown tired of your long locks, scroll down and take your pick from these cool and trendy medium-length hairstyles that are totes easy to maintain, too!

Keep it one-length.

There's no doubt that maintaining a medium-length hair is easier than styling super short or super long hair. Make managing your hair so much easier by keeping your cut one-length, too!

Add fringe to the equation!

One way to jazz up any 'do? You guessed it! Bangs are the key.

Throw in super soft layers.

When your 'do has too many layers, you run the risk of split ends or frizzy locks. Keep your mane healthy by keeping your layers soft and barely-there.


Keep it wavy.

Nothing spells Hollywood hair more than a medium-length cut and loose waves pairing.

Add volume!

Add a whole lot of edge to the good girl cut by adding volume to your tresses! Center part your hair for a retro, but never dated 'do.
