What Are Some Styles for Medium to Long Hair Cuts?

Styles for women's medium-length hair cuts include the asymmetrical long bob (or lob), layered center-part lob and blunt chin-length bob, while longer hair cuts are suited to intricate braids, stick-straight strands and 1970s eye-level bangs. An undercut with shaved sides works well with both medium and longer hair on men.

Achieving either an unkempt, textured medium style or a sleek long style starts in the salon. For a textured look, stylists cut in layers, leaving the back of the hair slightly shorter and the face-framing hair a touch longer. Working in a texturizing pomade or light hair paste gives medium-length hair a piecey look. To keep long hair sleeker, stylists can layer only around the face while keeping most of the hair the same length. A shine serum keeps long hair smooth.
