It is true that beautiful lengths allow for sophisticated hairstyles when a short hairstyle is very practical and does not require a lot of maintenance on a daily basis. But the shoulder-length hair in all of this? Make no mistake, the mid-length cut also has plenty of advantages and deserves our full attention: hairstyles for medium-length hair are also endless, depending on the occasion, the time of day, or even the season (we don't want the same hairstyles in autumn/winter as in spring/summer for example!).
Square cut, tapered hairstyle, curls, layered hairstyle, bob, straight and ultra-smooth hair, raised in a bun or ponytail, gathered in a braid, with or without bangs, colored or natural hair... Hairstyles for Medium-length hair are really not lacking and perfectly fit the life of modern women. It's a cut length that's feminine, glamorous, and practical at the same time. Here we give you tips and tricks that will help you better control your shoulder-length hair.
If you decide to change your hairstyle, consider taking your face shape into account when choosing it. Do you have a round face? Go for curls or bangs (all except straight bangs) to refine your features. Going for a layered mid-length hairstyle is also a good idea. And, an easy little trick to refine a round face: bet on a cut with a parting on the side!
Mid-length hairstyles (paired with wispy bangs if you have a wide forehead) will also look great on a woman with a diamond or long face. If this is your case, on the other hand, avoid straight hairstyles that are very smooth.
For a woman with a diamond face (or a triangle that points downward), a mid-length hairstyle like the plunging long bob can be a good option. The main thing is to keep some volume in your hair on top.
Finally, if you have an oval face, good news: you can afford any haircut! And that doesn't just apply to the mid-length, but whatever the length of your hair - from very short to very long.
As for spring/summer 2021 trends for mid-length haircuts, we advise you to bet on the bob, a hairstyle as essential as it is timeless for all hair lengths. At the moment, the trend is towards sobriety (boyish hairstyle, straight hair…). Hair with waves (the famous wavy effect) will also be featured in the coming months! With your mid-length haircut, you can also adopt the wet effect and the hair slicked back, particularly sticking to this year's trend. Also think of braids (doubled version, XXL, in twists, or even in crown), a type of hairstyle particularly practical in hot weather. Another hairstyle also perfects when it's hot or for an outing: the bun - which comes in half-bun or bohemian bun this season.
For a unique hairstyle that looks like you, you can also play with the color of your hair. If you want to be tempted by coloring, know that red is ultra-trendy at the moment and comes in all shades. From the most flamboyant red to the discreet highlights and coppery effect, passing through auburn, golden locks of hair, coppery brown, or even Venetian blond - you are spoiled for choice!
Do you prefer blonde hair color? So go for polar blonde, light blonde, ash blonde, platinum blonde, or even pink blonde. Are you more of a brunette team? A deep brown or even with a natural balayage will be the most beautiful effect this season.
Finally, for a little fantasy, colored locks of hair (in yellow, pink, blue, or purple) are also very trendy in 2021. So, what will be your choice for a hairstyle in your image?
Do not forget either the hair accessories that will give style to your hairstyle: flowers, pearls, rhinestones, barrettes, headband, small clips, headband ... the choice is yours. Note that with a little length, you can also embellish your mid-length hairstyle with a pretty ribbon with which to tie your hair, for example.
Whether you have chosen to color yourself or your hair to be natural, you owe it to yourself to pamper your mid-length haircut if you want to keep lengths at the top over time. Indeed, split ends of the hair can become a real problem for women with a mid-length hairstyle since this length causes a lot of permanent friction between the hair and the shoulders. Fortunately, to treat damaged hair ends, there are serums and other sprays to penetrate by gently massaging the affected areas.
So, of course: prevention is better than cure, but also remember to have the ends of your hair cut regularly at your favorite hairdresser. If your hair is healthy, a few millimeters is enough about every three months to give your hair a boost.
For those of you who prefer to make their own beauty products and are addicted to 100% natural home treatments, here is a recipe that will allow you to sport beautiful shoulder-length hair in great shape. We recommend that you do this hair mask once a week, in order to provide your hair with everything it needs to stay shiny and healthy.
First step: mix with a banana (or an avocado), two tablespoons of honey, egg yolk, and two tablespoons of olive oil, until you obtain a fluid paste without lumps. You can also use a blender if you have one.
Then dampen your hair and wring out your lengths well before applying your homemade hair mask. Cover your hair with cling film (the heat reinforcing the effectiveness of the mask) and leave it on for an hour. Finish by rinsing with clean water, paying particular attention to the lengths, followed by shampoo.
For super soft hair, you can also bet on coconut oil, a very good moisturizer. Finally, if you have colored hair, prefer a mask specially adapted to the nature of your hair.
Another step that should not be overlooked in your beautiful hair routine: conditioner. In addition to promoting the disentangling of your hair lengths, it can also provide some hydration to your hair when washing. Small tip: remember to leave it on for a few minutes so that the hair fibers are saturated with the active ingredients contained in the conditioner. As for the shampoo, do one once or twice a week so as not to weaken your hair and attack your scalp. Be sure to choose it in line with your type of hair (dry hair, oily hair, colored hair, etc.).
Finally, for drying, if you opt for the "hairdryer" solution (although it is always better to let your hair dry freely), prefer a medium or even cold temperature so as not to damage your hair. You can complete your beauty routine with the application of a thermo-protective treatment before this type of aggressive drying for the hair.
Regarding the styling, we choose the right material with a boar bristle brush smoothing the hair fiber. A wide-toothed comb is also practical for combing your wet hair and detangling it without breaking it. Also, don't forget to brush your hair in the evening to remove dust, impurities, styling products, and other aggressive pollutants accumulated during the day.
