Medium Length Hairstyles Offer Great Versatility
For ease of care and versatility the medium cut hairstyles are hard to beat. They can quickly go from free and flowing, to curly and wavy, and from there to a sleek pulled back look. Many celebrities like Courtney Cox Arquette and Nicole Ritchie choose a medium length because it ideally adapts to their fast-paced lifestyle.
Medium length hair is usually thought to be shoulder length or an inch or two shorter. It is long enough to pull back in a bun, but short enough that the weight of the hair doesn't flatten out. The adaptability of medium length hair is evidenced in the ease of adding flair and variety on the fly.
Using a few simple tools the layout of the hair can completely change. For instance, use hot rollers to produce a curly effect in just minutes, or use CHI hair straighteners or wavers to get a completely different hot new look. In addition, changing the appearance of the bangs can change a look for casual to sophisticated in a flick of the iron. Nicole Ritchie, for example, often uses a distinctive fringe-molding technique for her bangs to give her whole hairstyle a splash of panache.
