Like any hair type, there are pros and cons of having naturally wavy locks. Humidity may not be your best friend…but hey, you’ve got totally gorgeous texture all year round! When it comes to finding the perfect cut to compliment your hair type, lose a bit of length. Need a little inspiration? These 3 medium length haircuts for wavy hair will help you look your very best.
One great medium length haircut? The long bob, aka the “lob.” Think this cut is just for straight haired girls? Wrong! This haircut works perfectly with wavy hair because all that natural shape gives you tons of sexy volume. To perfect the long bob, get slightly shorter layers cut in the back with longer face framing layers in the front. Not only is this look ultra flattering for any face shape but it will make your waves look totally unforgettable!
Keep this wavy haircut frizz free by using a smoothing shampoo and conditioner in the shower. Then, take a minute to run a heat control gel through your hair once it is damp. Dry with a diffuser and finish off with a bit of styling cream to add extra definition. These steps will play up your waves – without your long bob go frizzy throughout the day.
Amp up your medium length waves with blended bangs. This stunning haircut combines side swept bangs and longer layers to create a red carpet worthy style. Why does it work so well with wavy hair? Your natural texture gives the bangs and layers loads of shape. Since the bangs and layers aren’t too short, they won’t end up looking super dramatic. Instead this cut will softly frame your face.
Style this haircut by scrunching a curl boosting mousse through your hair. This will help define the waves. Then put your diffuser on medium heat and gently cradle your hair as you go. Once it is completely dry, use a small amount of product to style the bangs to the side. Remember, a little goes a long way!
Still searching for the right medium length haircut for wavy hair? Choose a shoulder-grazing cut. This look is all about including tons of layers – and embracing your texture to create a style that is big and bold. Ask your hairstylist to let the length just hit the shoulders. You’ll also want them to include shaggy, piecey layers to create that beautiful fullness.
To make the most of this cut, add in a frizz reducing serum when your hair is damp. Ditch the blow dryer and diffuser and let your hair dry naturally instead. You’ll get all the volume you love, with waves that cannot be missed.
There is just something about wavy hair. The right cut can highlight all of its best qualities. So, give one of these 3 medium length haircuts for wavy hair a try. You’ll love your new look!
