MEDIUM HAIR STYLES - STYLING AND MAINTENANCE TIPS
Layered hair styles create contrasting looks and provide internal texture. Layering can be used to increase body and volume, or it can be used to decrease weight.
Layered styles are a great way to add interest to medium-length hair. To create a modern look, use a flat iron to straighten the ends and prevent them from flicking out.
Sweeping side or heavy and fragile looking bangs are ideal for fashionable hair styles.
The Romantic Bob
This style works best on wavy medium to fine hair. Thick hair will end up too poufy.
This cut should fall to about the middle of your neck. Long layers will give it that dreamy, whimsical feel.
Maintenance: Keep it springy and pretty by blow-drying it with a diffuser and by visiting your stylist about every six to eight weeks for a trim.
The Angled Bob
This cut thins out round faces. If you have narrow features, you may want to rethink this style, as it will only make your face appear longer. It is easiest to style if your hair is fine and straight, although it works on most hair types.
Your hairstylist should use a razor on the ends. It texturizes the hair leaving the back soft and not so harsh.
Maintenance: If your hair is a bit on the thick side, weigh it down with a shine or straightening product. Get it trimmed every six to eight weeks.
This cut works beautifully on fine hair. It's a short edgier twist on layers that give you more volume. Hair that's too thick ends up looking like a mullet.
Instead of cutting on top of the hair, pull up the top layer and cut shorter, more angular pieces underneath.
Maintenance: Don't wash your hair everyday unless its really oily. This style looks very "bad girl" when it's a little dirty.
This cut will work on most people, except those with very curly or frizzy hair. Because the layers are adjusted to suit your face shape, it's easy to pull off.

Ask for choppy, uneven, tapered ends. There should be layers in the front and back.
Maintenance: Thanks to the uneven, broken-up layers, this hair still looks good when it's grown out, but to keep the look, have it cut every six to eight weeks.
This works for those who want a sexy, messy-on-purpose style. Very fine hair might look too sparse with this look.
Keep the layers long, because the hair is wavy, too many choppy pieces will be prone to frizz. If hair is naturally wavy the razor should be used sparingly as it could cause frizz. If hair is straight and fine then the razor is the key for adding some texture.
Maintenance: Add some waves to straight hair or amp up natural curl with a curling iron.
