Medium Hairstyles with Balayage
Medium hair looks especially stunning with balayage tones as they can add so much depth and dimension to shoulder length locks. As always, unless you are planning to dye all of your hair a new base color, it is recommended to only go a few shades darker or lighter than your base hair color. If you are considering cutting your longer hair but don’t want to chop it all off and go super short, a medium length cut with balayage is a great way to liven up your hair without being too drastic.

Here are some of the most popular balayage trends for mid length and shoulder length tresses:
- Caramel and balayage brown hair
- Peek-a-boo balayage hair blonde
- Auburn and dark brown balayage
- Honey balayage brown to blonde
- Brunette and chestnut balayage
- Strawberry blonde balayage
- Cinnamon balayage hues
- Butterscotch blonde balayage
- Toffee balayage
- Silver and gray balayage
One of the advantages of a mid length cut is that it will not require quite as much upkeep as a longer balayage style. This, of course, will depend on what shade you chose. Keep in mind that lighter shades of blonde such a platinum will require more maintenance. Blonde highlight and hues generally require a touch up every six to eight weeks while darker tones can last up to several months, depending on the cut and style.
As you can see by the photos above, balayage looks positively gorgeous on mid length styles. Whether your hair is poker straight, wavy or curly, you will be able to find the perfect cut and balayage combo to suit your style and personality. A simple color change can make you look and feel years younger, renew your self-esteem and give you a fresh outlook on life. Not to mention, a sassy new style will make you feel sexy!
