Shoulder length hair is versatile, easy to manage and easily styled at home. For women on the go, it’s the ideal length. If you have medium long hair, these styles are perfect for your locks.
Wavy & unbothered
Big, loose waves will add volume to your hair. Messy, incomplete waves add movement to your locks. To create this look, use a curler for about five seconds, then run your fingers through your hair while it cools. Then, part your hair to the side (see below for why).
Slight side part
A simple slight side part is easy, effortless and low-maintenance. It can help soften a square- or rectangle-shaped face. Paired with thin side bangs, it’ll create a casual look that works for all occasions.
On days when you need to get your hair up and get going, a messy bun is a great option. This easy, effortless look is a great girl-on-the-go ‘do.
A casual, low-key ponytail is another good daily look for women with medium long hair. This is a great workout hairstyle. It can also look cute under a baseball cap for ball games or the beach.
Done right, a ponytail can also be pulled together enough for formal occasions. For this look, wrapping a segment of your hair around the hair tie can help pull the look together.
While this look can be a bit divisive, a slicked back hairstyle can look fantastic on women with medium long hair.
For ladies with shoulder length hair going to the beach or a music festival, braids are a popular hairstyle. For these, you may need to enlist a friend’s help.
