Best Medium-Length Haircuts for 2018 Best Medium-Length Haircuts for 2018 Best Medium-Length Haircuts for 2018

Experimenting with extremes can be fun, but there’s nothing wrong with settling on a hairstyle that’s somewhere in-between. What we’re saying is, maybe 2018 doesn’t have to be the year of having short hair or long hair. You can try a look that’s in the middle, opting for a medium-length haircut. And the best part is, you don’t have to sacrifice any style. Your tresses will be just as on trend as if you had let your locks grow out or chopped them close. We’re sharing four medium-length haircuts that fit the bill, plus, how to style them, below. Get ready to book an appointment with your hairdresser in the new year.

Medium-Length Haircut #1: Layered Lob

If we had to pick only one haircut to recommend to literally everyone, it would be this one. The simple truth is, you can’t go wrong with a layered lob. It’s not too short, it’s not too long: It’s just right. We guess that’s the reason everyone’s rocking this haircut right now!

Follow these simple steps to style your haircut:

Step 1: Braid before bed. When you’re getting ready to go to bed, put your hair into a few braids. When you wake up and take out the braids, your hair will have perfect waves. The bigger your braids, the looser the waves!

Step 2: Use texturizing spray. You can always use a little more texture. Go ahead and spritz hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist.

Step 3: Create a half-bun. Using a clear elastic, put the top layer of your hair into a small bun to complement the waves.

Step 4: Finish with hair spray. Lock the look in place with a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

Medium-Length Haircut #2: Shoulder Skimming

We totally understand if you’re tempted to cut your hair super-short but aren’t quite ready to make that leap. If that’s the case, this is the haircut for you. You can lose some lengt, without jumping straight to chopping it all off. Have your hair cut at an angle, with the longest pieces sitting just atop your shoulders.

Follow these simple steps to style your haircut:

Step 1: Wash with a frizz-fighting shampoo and conditioner. Hop into the shower and start washing your hair with a system that can help control frizz. For shampoo, use the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo. For conditioner, use the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner.

Step 2: Dry with a T-shirt. Instead of drying your hair with a towel, soak up excess water with a cotton T-shirt, which can be gentler.

Step 3: Use wave spray. While your hair is still damp, use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray.

Step 4: Allow to air dry. Let your hair air dry the rest of the way and then you’re good to go!

Medium-Length Haircut #3: Throwback Crop

During the ‘90s, everyone and their mother was in the salon asking for this cut—and now it’s back. You probably remember it from your favorite sitcom back in the day, but just in case it isn’t ringing a bell, imagine choppy layers starting at the crown and working their way all the way down your strands.

Follow these simple steps to style your haircut:

Step 1: Use heat protectant. We’re about to break out a blow-dryer, and you know what that means: heat protectant! Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream

Step 2: Blow-dry. Blow-dry your hair, using a round brush to keep it smooth as you go. When you reach the ends, use the brush to flip the ends under (inwards).

Step 3: Use shine spray. It never hurt to add some shine! Give your hair a few spritzes.  

Medium-Length Haircut #4: Blunt All Over

How you cut your hair can make a serious statement, and this style is no exception. No boring haircut here. Match blunt bangs with blunt (but texturized!) ends for a dramatic ‘do. Just be sure to secure a follow up for trimming your hair, otherwise your bangs will be blocking your eyes in no time.

Follow these simple steps to style your haircut:

Step 1: Use heat protectant. This style requires a straightener, hence the heat protectant. Use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray.

Step 2: Straighten. Section by section, flat iron your hair so it’s completely straight.

Step 3: Use hair cream. Apply a hair cream to smooth out any spots that may need it.

Step 4: Finish with hair spray. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold.

Once you’ve switched over to medium-length hair, you’ll likely wonder how you’ll manage to wear an updo again. Not a problem. Just check out our article on 5 Fall Updos for Medium-Length Hair.
