Medium Layered Hairstyles

Get fabulous medium hair by adding layers! These medium layered hairstyles have lots of texture, volume, and body to all hair types.

Thick hair gets added bounce to thick hair while thin hair will seem fuller. Layers are also a way to flatter every face shape – softening angles or adding flattering height or width.

For full hair, layers keep hair light and moving. This shoulder grazing cut uses short, medium and long layers for a dramatic effect.


The shortest layers from side swept bangs, mid length layers fall below the chin to frame the face, and long layers fall down the back.

A combination of high and low lights add even more pop to this hot look.

Medium layered hairstyles also add oomph to straight or fine hair that can fall flat. Layers are cut between chin and shoulder length to keep full volume around the head and encourage hair to curl under the chin.

The off center part paired with side swept bangs gives additional boost of volume at the crown. For extra lift and thickness, use a volumizing product that does double duty like Redken Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder.

There are so many ways to wear medium layered hair. This gorgeous look uses lots of short layers to keep hair close to the face in a rounded and sweeping style.

The medium to long layers are left to fall over the shoulders. When hair is pulled back the shortest layers will continue to attractively frame the chin.
