Are you ready to add volume and movement to your medium-length hair? Layered haircuts could be the perfect solution for you. We had the pleasure of speaking with Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist with years of experience. She shared her insights on how to choose the right layering technique, the best cuts for different hair types, and how to maintain your look. Here, we bring you all the essential tips to help you make the most of your medium-length locks.

Choosing the Right Layering Technique

When it comes to layering, Miller emphasizes the significance of considering your hair texture and face shape. She advises, “For fine hair, long layers may be the best choice. But for thick hair, shorter layers can help reduce some of the thickness and add movement.” For those with medium hair, “face framing layers can create a softer look,” she says. These tips can guide you in choosing the right layering technique for your hair type.

Flattering Cuts for Different Hair Types

If your hair is naturally wavy or curly, Miller recommends layering with a razor for a more blended look. For straight hair, she suggests using thinning shears or a razor to remove weight and create movement. For coarse hair, she advises using a razor to thin out the ends. Each approach can help you achieve your desired look based on your unique hair type.
