30 Fresh & Fun Mid Length Haircuts You’ll Love

If you can’t decide whether to have long hair or short hair, a medium length is obviously the best option. It’s not just because of the in between length, but because of the versatility!

Mid length haircuts are short enough to be manageable and easy to style, but long enough for you to try looks that require a little length. Here are 30 fun mid length haircuts for inspiration!

Soft Mid Length Cut

Q&A with style creator, Keely Alister
Stylist @ Uva Salon in Prahran, Melbourne, Australia

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I describe this look as a soft, mid length cut. The reason it is soft is because it just has some subtle long layers to break up the baseline, giving it a softer edge.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend the Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment as a heat protectant, to help smooth any frizz, and also to keep the hair from looking dry. I also recommend the Eleven Australia Sea Salt Texture Spray to give your blow dry volume and texture and stop it from going fluffy or unruly.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This is a great haircut because it suits so many face shapes, you just need to cut the shaping around the face to match your client’s needs. For example, a round face shape only needs a few shorter pieces around the face to give it an edge, and oblong shapes need more shaping and shorter pieces because they need the softness to add definition.

This look is perfect for people with any hair density because for finer hair it gives the illusion that hair is thicker and for thicker hair it tames it down to look fresh and not so unruly. This is an easy look for busy lifestyles because it’s still long enough to tie up if your in a hurry, and not as much hair to style if your wearing it out.

Soft & Feminine

Soft & Feminine hairstyleInstagram @a1_hair_salon

Q&A with style creator, Rachel Burns
Salon Owner @ A1 Hair in Landsborough, Queensland, Australia


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is increase layered mid-length hair. It is soft and feminine. It maintains a little bit of length, but lightens and shapes the hair around the face. It is one of my favorite cuts to do because it looks very flattering from all angles and has a lot of styling options.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I always suggest a blonde shampoo and conditioner like Keune Silver Reflex for highlighted clients. I always use a leave-in/heat protectant like Keune Absolute Volume Thermal Protector to dry off. Because this client was going out for the day ,I also used some mousse to support the big round brush blow dry.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This client finds her very thick hair difficult to manage, but likes some length and needs to wear her hair up at work. The increase layers remove a lot of weight while keeping enough hair to tie back neatly. I usually also over direct the hair around the face and shape it.

I think this look is flattering for most people. I don’t like seeing heavy or chunky layers falling on the face. This cut is great for people that like to sweep their hair back away from their face.

Earthy Vibes

Q&A with style creator, Jade Gibson
Session Hairstylist / Owner @ Jade Gibson Studios in Tyrone, North Ireland


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This cut is all about texture, versatility & modern earthy vibes. Razor cut edges soften the perimeter of this mid length bob shape whilst also creating a light and airy feel removing weight internally. Minimal invisible layering to give it that modern edge.  I love hair to look undone natural and understated. I love this cut as it ticks all the right boxes for me understated and sophisticated.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Think of your hair are like your skincare routine. When you start with a good base and build the right system of products it will make your hair so much more manageable and beautiful. Cleanse – Kevin Murphy Angel Wash Conditioning rinse -Angel Rinse Kevin Murphy Anti Gravity lotion to damp hair  Dry with Dyson supersonic dryer , massage your hair as you dry it to create more root lift and add more “airiness” to the style. Dry until 85-90 % dry. Take large sections and smooth with a round natural bristle brush gently turning the ends in with a medium heat , medium power. This will help smooth any frizzy flyaway and add shine.

Go through and straighten the ends only ( the last third if the hair) with cloud nine wide irons.  Use a dry shampoo to add weightless light volume effect texture  Once this step is complete turn your dryer to cool airy and go through the hair creating circular movements of air, this help to seal in the volume and add more of a natural lifted effect look.  Tip – use dry shampoo on the root shaft of your hair when clean & fresh – as well as extra volume the product will absorb any access oils from the scalp before it has the chance to make your hair look greasy. This will give you an extra day from your blow dry.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The Texture cut is really versatile and can be adapted to suit fine to thicker textures by varying the weight removal and balance.   Ask your stylist for a mid length modern Texture cut to allow a natural “airy pieces” effect.   This look is perfect for the modern lady who likes slightly edgy undone sophistication.  ✔️low maintenance ✔️ trendsetter ✔️modern lady ✔️  Suitable for  ✔️all face shapes.

Modern Texture

Modern Texture hairstyleInstagram @jakebmartin

Q&A with style creator, Jake Martin
Hairstylist @ Ramirez | Tran Salon in Beverly Hills, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This haircut is what I call a modern textured midlength haircut. It gives a nice shape framing the face and long, point cut layers to add movement and create a light and airy feel. My favorite thing about it is that it’s very versatile. It can be worn air dried, straight or with beachy waves (my favorite).

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I like to keep products simple for my clients. I would blow dry with an oil like Oribe Gold Lust and Royal Blowout for heat protectant. Then wave with a 1 1/4-inch curling iron, doing each piece in alternating directions. Finish with a dry finishing spray like Oribe Dry Texture Spray and shake it out with your hands to get a more disheveled look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

One thing great about this cut is that it does work well on most hair types and grows out so well, giving the style longevity between cuts. For rounder face shapes, be sure to keep face framing a bit longer to help elongate and for more narrow face types, shorter face framing is nice to give more width so that it doesn’t drag them down. On thicker hair, ask for a little more weight to be taken out to ensure movement.

This is one of my favorite haircuts for any lifestyle because you can air dry with a good salt spray and look cool or dress it up a little with more polished waves. Either way, you’ve got a modern, sexy cool hairstyle. Cheers!

A-Line Bob

Q&A with style creator, Andrew De Mio
Head Style Apprentice @ Mark Garrison Salon in New York, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This style is called a long bob or a lob. This particular cut incorporates an A-line angle into the bottom perimeter, which means it’s shorter in back and longer in front. I love its versatility! It can be layered or graduated for lots of movement options. It can be worn naturally, giving it a messier feel but still have a modern look and shape, or smoothed out for a more sophisticated sensibility. An iron can be used to create almost any type of wave for unlimited texture and movement possibilities.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

For a smooth look, use a good thermal protectant combined with a blow dry cream, gel or mousse for hold. Blow dry with a metallic ceramic round brush to help create and lock in smoothness. Then, flat iron and apply a tiny bit of pomade to help get rid of any flyaway hairs. Spritz lightly with a shine spray for a beautiful finish!

For a messy natural feel, scrunch in a little bit of beautifying oil, leave-in conditioner, and/or sea salt spray and allow to air dry.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

A heart shaped face which is wider around the forehead and narrower through the chin will be ideal for this cut. The longer length helps to soften the chin area and long layers can create more movement and fullness to balance everything out. However, the lob is very versatile and can also be worn by just about any face shape with different layering and fringe options. This can be determined through a thorough consultation with a stylist.

This cut is perfect for clients who want something modern with style options. It can be worn natural with little time and effort spent on styling, or more polished and perfect for those that are willing to put in the extra work. A bob is timeless and classic and with so many options, this current version is sure to give more bang for the buck!

Mid Length Transformation

Q&A with style creator, Shauna Belli
Owner/Stylist @ Flourish Hair Company in Chesapeake, VA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

Thid is a mid length haircut with internal layers to give it some swing, as well as remove weight without giving it a “layered” look. I also added a very small amount of shattered face framing to give it a little life in the front.

I love this transformation because I do think that sometimes hair can overwhelm a person. I love how it opened her up a bit and freshened up her style. It’s still long enough to put up, but doesn’t overpower her in length and weight. My client isn’t lacking in the hair department. Her hair is is very, very thick.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

My client’s hair is very thick and has some natural body to it, so I used a smoothing serum (with a heat protectant) to create this look. I blow dried it smooth and went over it with my favorite flat iron, the Sultra Seductress. You can also blow out this look and go in with a curling iron or a flat iron to create a loose, lived-in wave as well.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this haircut to a lot many clients. It is still long enough to curl, put up or style pretty much however the client would like. Like I said above, this particular client was not lacking in the hair department. I think this cut would be great on someone who has medium thickness as well. You can also add more of a layered look to this style if desired. It’s just a fun hairstyle to give you a little pizzazz without being too short!

Classic Lob

Q&A with style creator, Kelli Scobel
Hairstylist/Colorist @ Michael Frank’s Salon in New Orleans, LA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as a lob (long bob). My favorite thing about this cut is that it is a classic, timeless look.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Starting with a smoothing lotion like Tigi After Party before blow drying will allow you control and will help eliminate frizz. Mist with a spray shine like Aquage Shining before flat ironing. To finish add a little wax like Bedhead Manipulator on the ends.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The lob is a versatile cut that looks great on every face shape. It’s sleek when worn down, it’s long enough to pull up for a woman on the go, and it is fun and edgy when curled.

Textured Long Bob

Q&A with style creator, Michelle Frazer
Hairstylist @ Philosophi Salon in Columbus, OH


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a textured long bob with piecy layers and bright, summery balayage highlights.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend using AG Repair Serum with AG Sterling Silver shampoo and conditioner. I also recommend either a wand or flat iron for the curls and a little AG Argon Oil to polish.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is perfect for anyone who likes the quickness of styling short hair and the ease of still being able to pull it up in a ponytail! Because there are not a lot of layers, this cut tends to last longer than others.

Classic Long Bob

Q&A with style creator, Rachel Casey
Stylist @ Charles Ifergan Salon in Chicago, IL


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is truly a classic cut and by far one of my favorite looks to create. With the long bob, the hair is typically shorter in the back and slightly longer in the front.

I love that I am able to have so much versatility with this cut. The cut can range anywhere from shaggy to blunt. Also, you can add some graduation and bangs to change up the look.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Anything goes with this mid-length look. My personal favorite is beach waves, then messy texture, and even just smooth and sleek. To me, less is more and you can get there with a little help by using a prep styler and a finishing spray.

I personally love using Charles Ifergan’s Hydrating Styling Potion. It not only helps hydrate and condition the hair before blow drying, but you can also use it after to tame frizz and control those flyaways. I also use Charles Ifergan Dry Shampoo which is wonderful for adding volume, texture, and really defining the style you’re going for in this mid-length look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

With this mid-length look and knowing the different options available for the client, it truly is one of those cuts that can be custom and tailored for all types of hair textures and face shapes. My approach is to first have a consultation with the client to get a better feel of not only their personality, but their maintenance level as well. This is essential for the client to look and feel their best with this beautiful, classic look.

Soft Balayage

Q&A with style creator, Kimberly Clark
Cosmetologist @ Personal Image Salon & Spa in Lansing, MI


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look portrays a soft, loose curl on a mid-length haircut that was balayaged to add depth and natural contrast to the hair. My favorite thing about this look would be the blend through her balayage. Paired with the mid-length cut and proper texturization, the color will look great straight or curled. I love when there is versatility!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Pairing the right products with the client’s hair type is essential! Her hair is thick and coarse with rather fine hair strands. I used AVEDA Phomollient and Amika Bombshell Blow-Out Spray while the hair was damp and finished with Paul Mitchell’s Smooth & Skinny Serum to achieve this look.

If your hair requires added hold for the curl, I recommend using a moveable yet firm-holding hairspray like Redken’s Triple Take 32. It’s my personal favorite! I educate clients to apply products from the nape up (leaving minimal product at the top to avoid excess product resdue), and to only use the amount recommended for the hair type. In this case, a quarter-sized amount of the Phomollient, two sprays of the Amelia, and about a pea-sized amount of the Paul Mitchell emulsified in your palms.

Use a 1 1/4-inch curling iron to recreate the curl. Product knowledge is essential for both stylists and our clients. Having the “salon finished” look is essential to a happy client!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for someone who is looking for minimal upkeep and wants to maintain a polished look when they style it, but can still wear it up/natural. The haircut pairs best with a oval or round face shape, but with the right amount of texturizing and shaping, this look will look great on anyone! It’s all about the proper angle for the face.

This look is easy to maintain, so it’s perfect for busy moms on the go, someone who doesn’t always want to put a ton of effort into their hair, or someone who simply can’t make it in to get their hair done as much as they’d like. Mid-length hairstyles plus a balayage are a go-to when someone wants less upkeep but a fresh look!

Sexy Midlength Cut

Sexy Midlength Cut hairstyleInstagram @mlaporta

Q&A with style creator, Meagan Harrigan-Laporta
Master Stylist/Extension Specialist @ Meagan LaPorta Hair in Albany, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

When we are talking mid ength hair, I just love the versatility of it. It’s a way to make long hair modern while getting away from the long layered style of a few years back. It’s fresh and clean, but long enough to put up without a lot of bits falling out all over.

When styling a midlength cut, I like to focus on lifting at the crown of the head and keeping the front close to the face, or giving the lift in the front with a deep side part and some lift off the face. But never both!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

My go-to products right now for this look make things simple. I recommend a heat product for protection because an iron is used to create the loose waves that add a more messy look to the hair. Remember to leave your ends out while curling to avoid an over curled look that can appear dated.

I also recommend a root lift for some support in the area you would like some height, as well as a texturizing product to break the wave up and add some movement to the hair, making it more lived-in looking. I am loving Design Me’s Puff Me and Power Dry Me, along with either Oribe Wave and Shine or Dry Texture Spray, depending on your hair type.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is all over right now and can be a unique, signature look by each person. Any face shape can wear this look. You can change and emphasize certain things by switching a part or by maybe adding layers. A small round face may opt for a deep side part with some height in the front to draw the eye up and give the illusion of a longer face without hiding small features. There are ways to change the shape of this cut while still keeping a heavy weightline and that sexy collar bone length that flatters most women.

Super Texture

Super Texture hairstyleInstagram @muellerstyles

Q&A with style creator, Hannah Mueller
Stylist @ Changes Salon & Spa in St.Louis, MO


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This particular look is fairly easy to maintain. Her layers may appear short, but they are actually just super textured. It makes for more natural movement within the cut itself. I personally love hair that looks effortless and this is definitely one of those easy morning styles that does not need much work put into it!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Some good products to maintain this look would be a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to help keep the hair soft and bright. I like to use oils such as the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Oil to keep it sleek and frizz-free. It’s super light, so you can put it on wet or dry hair. A good texturizing or wax spray for added texture would be a good staple in any powder room for that extra movement and pieciness!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This cut and style was performed on a client with thicker hair. It would be suitable for someone looking for movement, but not looking to lose too much interior length by adding layers. She has some layers, but they are somewhat disconnected so her hair still looks fuller on the bottom.

Effortless Texture

Effortless Texture hairstyleInstagram @cosmarissa

Q&A with style creator, Marissa Stylist @ Charlotte Thomas Salon in Phoenixville, PA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This mid-length style features layers point-cut at a 45 degree angle below the occipital, blending into round layers. My favorite thing about it is ease of style. I love how much texture and movement exists before styling.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Bumble and bumble Brilliantine, applied through the ends, accentuates the texture and adds shine to this look for any hair type.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is ideal for straight to wavy hair textures, thick or thin, and can be customized for every face shape. The ease of this style makes it ideal for anyone who wants to look on-trend without having to put excess time and effort into their style.

Trendy Lob

Q&A with style creator, Lindsay West
Senior Stylist @ Bradys Hair Salon in Chesterfield, UK


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?
This is an on-trend, balayaged blonde lob. I love the bluntness of the cut!
What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend a professional color-protecting shampoo and a volumizing blowdry lotio.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is perfect for fine hair. The blunt lines gives thickness to the hair and the deeper root gives the hair lots of dimension. This color is still bright and blonde, but low maintenance with the softer, more natural-looking roots.

Undone Wave

Undone Wave hairstyleInstagram @hairbender_m

Q&A with style creator, Marissa Bender
Owner / Master Stylist @ Moss Hair Co in Columbus, OH


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This can be described as an undone wave. The straighter ends and slight root lift make it feel like second day-hair, which is probably my favorite part about this style.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used all Kevin.Murphy products for this look. I started with Anti.Gravity spray at the root for lift and hold, then added Shimmer.Me.Blonde leave-in spray for heat protection, smoothness and shine to complete the blow dry with a large round brush. For the waves, I used a thin curved 1-inch flat iron, alternating directions with a slight bend and keeping the ends mostly straight. You can achieve a similar look using a barrel iron or wand if you leave the ends out as well.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This mid-length/wavy look is great because it tends to be very flattering, youthful, and typically less work to style than the extremely long or short styles. If you are working with a longer face shape, adding bangs can help balance the look. For extremely curly hair, an undercut works great for this length to help minimize the width.
If your lifestyle doesn’t allow time for a blow out, adding the alternating wave on top of your natural air-dried texture with some Hair.Resort or Do.Over spray also gives a less polished version of this style.

Face-Framing Layers

Face-Framing Layers hairstyle Instagram @prettykatie1986

Q&A with style creator, Katie McCune
Hairstylist @ Sergios Style in Pittsburgh, PA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a straight mid-length cut with face framing layers and long fringe.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend a smoothing serum like Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum to get a sleek look, and a flat brush to get the movement while blow drying. You can add the serum wet, or dry for a pieced out look. Finishing spray will hold the fringe off to the side, along with a good blow dry!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is good for anyone with an oval face shape or anyone that wants to hide some forehead! The length is cut to just below shoulders and can be worn straight or with beachy waves. Simply use a flat iron or curl wand for a shorter messier look.
