5 Best Short Medium Hairstyles and Trends

Get on the latest hair trends with our top edit of short medium hairstyles and haircut ideas. 

Don’t get us wrong, we love ultra-short hairstyles as much as the next person. Whether it’s a buzz cut or a tightly cropped pixie, these fun short styles have become synonymous with on-trend and modern looks! However, we get that there are instances when you want a little more length where only medium short haircuts will do. As one of the go-to looks of the season, medium short hairstyles are ideal if you want to refresh your long or medium hair with a new crop that you can still comfortably style and have to some length to play with if you choose to grow it out. Read on to check out some of our favorite short to medium hairstyles to help inspire your new look.

1. Long Pixie Cut

Pixie haircuts will always be a go-to look for those that want to go for the chop. And it can also work if you want a little more length where you can opt for a longer pixie cut. These short to medium haircuts work best on those with straight hair where you can go for a longer length on either side of your face. You can also have fun with your longer part, opting to switch it up every now and again for a dramatic side-swept look.

2. Classic Bob

One of our favorite short to medium haircuts is the classic bob. We love how a bob haircut works for both straight or wavy tresses that even allows you to play with some styles like a low bun, low ponytail or a half-up, half-down hairstyle. The middle part is particularly hot right now but you can also opt to style it on either part.

3. Wavy Lob

Lobs are everywhere these days and it’s clear that these ‘It Girl’ medium to short haircuts aren’t going anyway anytime soon! As one of our favorite modern hairstyles, you can opt for this cut right above your shoulder or at your collarbone or even add in a variation of the ‘70s middle part. To style your lob into that cool undone look, spray some of the Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray into your hair, then scrunch with your hands for a lived-in texturized look.

4. Sleek Lob

Another variation on the lob is the sleek look. We love how this look is all about glamour with minimal effort. To achieve this look, apply a heat protectant to your hair and then blow-dry your hair using a round brush. When you’re done, apply some of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum onto your hair for a smooth, frizz-free finish.

5. Shag

If you’re willing and able, this medium to short haircut literally ticks off both box in the length category, delivering an on-trend medium haircut that’s cool, modern and kinda edgy. Add a fringe to the mix for a truly show-stopping look.
