FACE SHAPE & MEDIUM LENGTH HAIR
Medium length hair can be used effectively to emphasize or de-emphasize certain aspects of your face. For example, lets say you have a round face. For a round face, you would want to style your hair such that it thins the roundness of the face and places more emphasis on eyes, lips and cheekbones. In such cases, a short bob would be a great choice.
Similarly it can also be used for different face shapes to narrow or broaden your face shape, hide or emphasize your forehead, add or take away the attention from your face and so on. You can also wear it at any texture you want as long as you style it properly.
One of the kryptonites of medium length hair is: The style can get repetitive and boring.
