These Are Our 16 Favorite Braided Hairstyles for Medium-Length Hair

Medium-length hair is defined a little differently based on who you ask. Some people say it's when your hair reaches past your collarbone but falls just short of your armpit. Others define it in a more general sense, expanding the category to include anything between a shoulder-length cut and Rapunzel-length locks. Either way, if you have medium-length hair, it means it's versatile. With a few tweaks, you can sport styles best suited for short or long hair. You have almost unlimited styling opportunities—and that's especially true when it comes to braided hairstyles.
