Has you hair been looking dull and lifeless? If so, you should consider adding layers to your hair! Layers can frame the face, create a more voluminous look and make your hair look softer and lighter. Not only that, but they look super stylish too. Today we have 23 medium layered hair ideas. Medium is a great hair length because it is not too short or too long so the hair is easy to maintain and style. Take a look and see what gorgeous hairstyles are on offer.
MEDIUM LAYERED HAIR IN BLONDE
First up, we have this trendy blonde style. For this look, the hair is just past the shoulders and features long layers. We love the style, the sun-kissed color and the loose waves. It is just a beautiful and easy to wear style. You can try the cut in any color but a similar blonde shade will be perfect for the summer.
CHIC HAIR WITH SHORT LAYERS AT THE FRONT
As with any other cut, there are different styles of layers that you can try. This next hairstyle features subtle layers. So, as you can see, the hair is medium length with the shortest layers at the front. Short layers at the front will frame the face beautifully and give the hair some shape. This is a chic and gorgeous way to layers and this cut will suit everyone.
CHOPPY LAYERED MEDIUM HAIR
If you want your layers to make more of a statement, this is perfect for you. Here we have choppy medium length hair. As you can see, the layers are quite short and textured so they are bolder than the ones above. This is a cute haircut and the beachy waves are great for the spring and summer. If you have straight hair, then you can still add texture to the layers without the waves.
BURGUNDY LAYERED HAIR IDEA
Next, we have a trendy cut and color to show you. The hair is a little shorter here and the length just hits the shoulders. Again, the layers are quite long but they do make a difference to the hair.

EDGY AND TEXTURED HAIR
Give your hair a little edge by choosing a style like this. The hair has a length that just hits the shoulder but if the hair was straight, it would be a little longer. These layers are quite long and the hair is styled into textured waves. The waves look so trendy and they will look differently depending on you wear them. One day the hair could have a boho vibe and one day have rock chic look. So, this style will suit everyone.
