The way we style and maintain our hair says a lot about us. The cut of your hairstyle can help to alter your appearance to a great extent. Besides, for the working woman, having a haircut that's stylish and professional, which is also easy to maintain, forms one of the basic criteria. One also needs to consider the shape of the face in this regard. Often, your hairstylist can offer you options as to what would suit you the best. But it is necessary for you to do some groundwork before you actually take the plunge and go in for a new haircut.

Medium haircuts are basically classified as hairstyles where the length of the hair is between the jaw and the shoulders. You can make them funky, formal, or elegant, the choice is yours! You can opt for a layered look when it comes to medium haircuts. The layers can also help to add volume to the hair. This hair length is also versatile, so it proves to be more useful for layering. This is especially useful if you wish to bring attention to your features.

Medium haircuts are great when it comes to the flexibility they offer over other hairstyles. Mid-length hairstyles prove to be a perfect choice for many, especially for those who are either too scared to snip off their hair way too short or for those who do not have time to maintain very long hair and fuss around with hair care. The best thing is, a variety of styles can be created without too many hassles. Be it curly, wavy, or straight hair, these hairstyles are bound to suit any kind depending on the texture of the hair. These hairstyles offer a comfortable hair length because it is neither too short nor too long! You can accentuate them in your own way, with layers or bangs to add an element of interest.

Let us take a look at some of the hairstyles that can help you decide the one that would best suit you.

Maintenance and Styling Tips for Medium Haircuts
• Trim hair every 4 to 6 weeks so that you don't lose the basic shape of the haircut.

• Use highlights to add some dimension to the hair and accessories to create new looks.

• Use reputed styling products.

• You can also blow-dry your hair using a large round brush. This would help to accentuate the layers around the face.

• Maintain the volume of the hair by using shampoos that help to add volume, and condition your hair as well.

• Maintain a healthy diet.
