While show stopping short styles and luscious long locks come in and out of style, classic mid-length hairstyles stand the test of time. Just because they are classic, doesn't mean these hairstyles for mid-length hair are boring, in fact they're quite the opposite. Layers, bangs, and angles add variety and personality to this low-maintenance hairstyle. They're long enough to style for different occasions, and pull back out of your face when necessary, but short enough so you don't have to spend all day washing, drying and straightening your hair to achieve the perfect look. If we haven't convinced you yet that it's the perfect hairstyle, read on to see the mid-length styles we love.
