33 Low-Maintenance Medium-Length Haircuts for Busy Women

#1: Cute Blonde Shag with Bangs

A cute blonde shag with bangs gives a nod to the 70’s shaggy style with a modern twist. The thick bangs really make a statement, but don’t forget to ask your stylist to add lots of texture to your bangs for easier grow-out. The shaggy layers give the illusion of fullness to otherwise fine hair. Blow dry with a large round brush, but remember to use a volumizing mousse to add volume and hold. Finish off your style with some waves with a curling wand and some texture spray.

#2: Sleek Blonde Medium-Length Thin Hairstyle

A sleek blonde medium-length thin hairstyle is a chic low-maintenance look. When you are looking for an easy-to-style, yet fashionable cut, a sleek medium length is a great option. Minimal layering will make the upkeep and styling easy but still give much dimension and definition. Towel dry your hair well before adding a smoothing cream and use a wide flat brush to blow dry into place. If you want a little curve on your ends you can finish it off with a large round brush.

Low-Maintenance Easy and Straight Mid-Length Hair

#3: Easy and Straight Mid-Length Hair

Consider a straight mid-length haircut. Then add a wispy fringe. Keep in mind, a cut like this is best for a client who has a straight texture. That makes it low-maintenance for a straight-haired lady. The bangs can be more maintenance. But, having a cut rounded and framing your face allows them to grow into more of a curtain fringe. This is best if you’re not wanting consistent bang trim visits. My advice is to use hydrating products. IGK’s Good Behavior line is great to remove frizziness and maximize shine.

Lived-In Long Shaggy Bob

#4: Lived-In Long Shaggy Bob

If you love messy hair, try a lived-in long shaggy bob. If you can’t achieve an airy and messy shape, make sure your stylist is cutting into the ends for a more shattered cut. This will give you that lived-in texture and a piece-y shape that will make you look cool. If you have a natural wave you might be able to air dry. If you have straight hair, once your hair is dry, try curling with a large iron leaving the ends out.

Effortless Mid-Length and Low-Maintenance Shag

#5: Effortless Mid-Length Shag

#7: Undone Texture

Make a modern style feel more romantic by adding low-maintenance, undone texture to a medium-length cut. To achieve this wavy look, use a curling iron to create the curls and then gentle tousle with your fingers. Remember to use a texture paste for a messier, undone style.

#8: Extra Long Low-Maintenance Pixie Cut

Rocking this extra-long low-maintenance pixie cut is amazing if you have smaller features and want something a bit more edgy and fun. It also adds some fullness on top to balance out a smaller, thinner face.

#26: Face-Framing Money Piece on Mid-Length Hair

The face-framing money piece on mid-length hair is a total hit. Discuss with your colorist how high the money piece should start and how soft or bold you want it to be. When the base is dark, level 5 and below, it’s better to avoid starting too close to the scalp because that can make the money piece look disconnected and stripy.

Low-Maintenance Shaggy Long Bob
