Many women make the mistake of chopping all their hair off past 40, but this can actually be more ageing than keeping your hair longer. So don't cut your hair short as you age - get inspired by these youthful, medium hairstyles
Long enough to sweep into a gorgeous updo, but short enough to avoid split ends, a mid length style is the cut that all the stars are asking for this season. Just click through our pick of beautiful looks, and it won't be hard to see why!
Falling anywhere between the jaw and collarbone, medium hairstyles
are incredibly flattering and ultra modern. They're also very versatile, as they can be cut and styled to a length that most flatters your features. In fact, they're one of the easiest looks to pull off, whatever your face shape and hair type. Not to mention, a shoulder-length cut is much easier to manage than longer locks and requires far less maintenance than shorter styles.
The trick? To ensure your mid length hairstyle
is well kept and - most importantly - suits your face shape. Browse our pick of the best medium length hairstyles
