Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair

Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair is Cause for Many Misunderstandings

Hairstylists everywhere tune in carefully to a customer who mentions a style or haircut for medium length hair. Way back when I was in cosmetology school I was told that a medium length hair cut was a style that the length is below the ears but does not yet touch the shoulders. Any haircut that is shorter than the ear lobes would be considered “Short” and a haircut that the length touches the shoulders would be considered “Long” those that end between the earlobes and the shoulder would be considered “Medium”. One look at any medium hair boards on Pinterest reveals how much confusion there is out there. That being said here are some of my favorite hairstyles for medium length hair:
