Medium layered haircuts with bangs give women a fresh look that’s effortless to style. The length is versatile as you experience the perks of having both short and long tresses.
Stylist Greer Tepper of Columbia, MD points out that mid-length locks can be simple to style. “If you let your natural texture do its thing, the medium layered chop will work perfectly,” she states.
Your lifestyle is one of the factors to consider before getting layers and a fringe.
Tepper explains, “Bangs can be a real annoyance if you’re not prepared for them. They need styling every morning. Also, a medium cut doesn’t demand too many layers as it may appear less modern.”
Remember, you may not be able to pull all your hair up. If your daily activities require you to wear ponytails or buns, having medium-length hair isn’t ideal. Yet, you can do a quick low updo, for sure!
Consult your stylist to make sure you get the perfect length and style for your face shape. They know what to recommend to you.
