Styling thin hair requires caution, as the brittleness means it can hairstyles with too much weight can break it pretty easily. Unless you’re an expert hairstylist, you’ll almost always need help when choosing hairstyles for your thin hair.
That help is what this post is here to provide. In this compilation, we’ll show you several medium length hairstyles for thin hair that won’t cause damage. Without further ado, let’s jump into the list.
Sassy Medium Length Hairstyles for Thin Hair
Thin hair admittedly limits your hairstyle choices, but it doesn’t eliminate them. Here are 50 outstanding medium length hairstyles for thin hair you should wear someday:
1. Messy Mid-Length Haircut with Balayage Highlights
One of the safest ways to wear medium length hairstyles for thin hair is by wearing a flowing style with no bells and whistles. Since it adds no extra weight, your strands are safe, and with that balayage coloring pattern, you have no worries about allure either.
2. Blonde Centre-Parted Wavy Haircut
This blonde center-parted wavy haircut is an excellent way to your thin, mid-length hair, as it also puts virtually no pressure on your haircut. Brown highlights should also work on this style, but it doesn’t seem necessary.
3. Medium Length Brunette Haircut with Highlights
If you have nothing against mixing colors, this brunette haircut with blonde highlights should work for you. I’m not sure how it looks from the front, but a chic center parting wouldn’t be bad.
4. Layered Swoopy Hairstyle with Bangs
Layers look their best on thin hair, and this swoopy hairstyle with bangs depicts that excellently. When you add an adorable center parting, like hers, it becomes almost certain that you’ll end up on this list.
5. Side-parted haircut with Feathered Layers
Partings don’t have to divide your hair into symmetrical halves; a side parting with feathered layers might be all you need. While this illustration is in brown hair, this idea should work on black and blonde hair too!
6. Mixed-Colored Mid-Length Wavy Haircut
Why choose black, blonde, or brown hair when you can mix both in the same hairstyle? Color combinations typically look out of place, but there’s something about this black-blonde wavy haircut that makes it one of the best medium length hairstyles for thin hair.
7. Chic Straight Lob
Long bobs have virtually no negative effects on thin hair, and they look just right. When you get them in brown, add a center parting, and flash a brilliant smile, the result is a hairstyle with the potential of making this list.
8. Glam Wavy Mid-Length Haircut
This glam wavy haircut is one of the most exquisite ideas on this list, and I love it. The dimensional brown look pairs well with the symmetrical parting to create this bonny look.
9. Blonde Layered Wolf Haircut
Some hairstyles are better suited to older women, and this is one of them. This wolf cut uses a side parting and a conventional ‘medium’ length that creates a look that’s both adorable and easy to replicate for seniors with gray hair.
10. Blonde Haircut with Bangs and Curved Ends
If you’re not ready to go gray yet, this blonde haircut with curved ends is a more practical idea. The curtain bangs are a nice extra touch; it makes the hairstyle pop!
11. Brown Hair with Layers and Bangs
12. Straight Long Bob with Highlights
What’s better than a dimensional blonde lob with brown highlights and an adorable frontal? If you have the length and volume to replicate something like this, the result is definitely worth the effort.
13. Pink Rosy Balayage Haircut
We’ve not seen any flashy-colored ideas so far, so I think this pink rosy balayage is in order. The balayage style makes the black highlights pop, and the slight wavy look makes it one of the prettiest medium length hairstyles for thin hair yet.
14. Brown and Blonde Mid-Length Lob with Bangs
Most of the styles in this compilation have used the power of color combinations, and this one is no exception. For me, brown and blonde seem more natural than pink and black; but then, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
15. Medium Length Haircut with Curly Ends
These curly ends are nothing short of exquisite, and they already make this style one of the best medium length hairstyles for thin hair. Then, you notice the dimensional look and understand why it made this list in the first place.
16. Shoulder Collarbone Length Layered Hair with Bangs
We can all agree this hairstyle looks adorable, and the length is just right. The feathered look of the layers is irresistible, and the side-swept curtain bangs just make everything pop.
17. Wavy Lob for Women over 50
Ladies on the older end of the divide will appreciate this wavy lob idea, specifically for women over 50. Since it comes in gray, I think it’s ready for them; no structural modifications are necessary.
18. Classic Brown Wavy Haircut with Bangs
Wavy haircuts aren’t only for older women; they can be an excellent idea for younger ladies too. If you’re going that route, you want a center parting and a beautiful smile to make the style pop.
19. Messy Golden Blonde Lob Haircut
This golden blonde lob is one of my favorite dimensional medium length hairstyles for thin hair, thanks to the excellent blonde-brown synergy. It’d look exquisite in curtain bangs, but we don’t know for sure; we can only imagine.
20. Tumbled Lob for Full Thin Hair
‘Tumbled’ seems like an apt description for this shaggy and slightly wavy bob haircut, and it works great on thin hair. You’ll need some volume to replicate something like this, however, but length? Not so much.
21. Beachy Wavy Haircut with Perfect Lines
Beach waves are naturally adorable, and this style carefully showcases their allure. You can notice the bouncy look from the subtle layers and the charming center parting; this hairstyle is simply amazing.
22. Layered Wavy Blonde Haircut
If you’re blonde and wavy, layering your hair might actually be a good idea, at least it’s a good one for this model. With that center parting, there’s no way it’s not one of the best medium length hairstyles for thin hair.
23. Polished Waves in Medium Length Hair
This polished waves hairstyle makes for one of the most elegant medium length hairstyles for thin hair, especially with that gigantic side braid. With that adorable hairpin, it’s a bridal style and a charming one at that.
24. Textured Bob with Shag Layers
A textured bob is an alluring way to wear a mid-length style, as it never seems to go wrong. To look your best, you may want to throw in a shaggy layered look for that extra touch.
25. Shag Haircut with Face Framing Layers
Ladies with round or oval faces will appreciate the face-framing look of this elegant shag. The layers aren’t the most aggressive, but they adorn the model’s face beautifully, working with the center parting to deliver a perfect thin hair look.
26. Chic Mid-Length Shaggy Haircut with Bangs
You can replicate the face-framing shag in blonde, and if it looks anything like this, then it’s pretty adorable. The shaggy look from the elegant bangs is a nice touch that you shouldn’t ignore.
27. Layered Medium Length Haircut with Curtain Bangs
Since brunettes shouldn’t be left out, this brown layered style should work for them. I love the stepped look created by the long curtain bangs, but the style could use a bit more bounciness.
28. Shoulder-Length Blonde Haircut with Feathered Ends
This feathered shoulder-length haircut is deservedly one of my favorite medium length hairstyles for thin hair, mainly for how good it looks. With the center parting and those curved ends, it’d be criminal to exclude the style from this list.
29. Classy Bouncy Blonde Haircut with Curls
Blonde shines brightest, and that theory is apparent in this adorable blonde cut. The curls towards the ends create a charming, bouncy look, and the center parting introduces that alluring symmetry.
30. Cute Updo for Medium-Length Hairstyles
A nice little updo isn’t too heavy for thin hair, as you can see on this model. Instead, wearing it with waves and elegant braids results in an excellent mid-length hairstyle for thin hair.
31. Super Colored Lob Haircut
Colors can make a lob pop, and this hairstyle brilliantly showcases how that works. I’m not a fan of purple haircuts, but if it’s this alluring lob with the center parting, why not?
32. Medium-Length Layered Bob
Layers and waves can work together to deliver a breathtaking look, and that’s what we’re seeing play out here. My favorite part of this idea is how it doesn’t show the front view; be free to experiment with that.

A straight bob would’ve been somewhat boring, but thanks to the side-sweeping bangs, the otherwise boring hairstyle is now fancy and chic. The blonde color also seems perfect for this style, and it slaps on thin hair!
34. Brunette Medium Length Choppy Haircut
This shag-like choppy haircut is another head-turning idea I couldn’t resist adding to this compilation. The layered, wavy look is perfect as is, but that center parting and the brunette color makes it simply unbeatable.
35. Mid-Length Butterfly Haircut
This style is no shag, but I can appreciate its aggressive layers, thanks to the butterfly style. The center parting is also a nice touch, and it’s overall one of the best black medium length hairstyles for thin hair.
36. Chic Wavy Bob with Full Highlights
What’s more endearing than a wavy bob with highlights and a center parting? For blonde ladies, medium length haircuts don’t get much better, especially on fine hair.
37. Shaggy Lob with Curtain Bangs
Plain lobs can be boring, so this model spiced things up with a shaggy look and textured curtain bangs. Shags aren’t for everyone, but if you have brown hair and love a fancy look, I believe it’s for you.
38. Shaggy Lob with Fringe
Shags aren’t only for brunettes; here’s a breathtaking shaggy lob idea for blonde ladies that look exquisite. The full fringe makes it slightly better, and the brown highlights complete the near-perfect look.
39. Cute Middle-Part Bob Haircut
If you underrate center partings, this cute bob should already be changing your mind. With just a nicely done center parting, it’s climbing its way to becoming one of the prettiest ideas on this list; isn’t that mindblowing?
40. Mid-Length Curly Shaggy Haircut
I never knew shags could be curly, so imagine my surprise when I came across this hairstyle. Not only does the model manage to combine the shaggy look with curls and fringe, but she also manages to get an adorable result.
41. Purple Medium-Length Bob with Curved Ends
This compilation hasn’t been the richest with colored styles, but this one makes up for the deficit. I’m not sure if it’s the purple color, the side parting, or the adorable layers, but something about this style just looks right.
42. Thick Wolf Haircut with Fringe
Wolf haircuts aren’t my thing, but seeing this style is successfully changing my mind. I’d probably not get a thick wolf haircut with a full fringe tomorrow, but I wouldn’t be able to resist complimenting someone with this style.
43. Voluminous Bob Haircut
If your hair is thin but voluminous, this bob haircut is the perfect style for you. Apart from the highlights and the volume, there’s really not much to it, yet it manages to look insanely charming.
44. Chic Collar-bone Bob with Long Curtain Bangs
Long curtain bangs, when used right, can make a huge difference, and I believe that’s what they’re doing here. The style’s sleek look and the model’s smile are surely playing critical roles, but just take a look at those bangs!
45. Messy Feathered Layered Haircut
Smooth hairstyles are typically good, but not all good hairstyles are smooth. This messy feathered cut proves that statement satisfactorily with its messy yet insanely alluring texture.
46. Classic Reddish Shag Haircut with Bangs
We’ve seen tons of shag haircuts, but here’s one more for good measure. The copper-brown color here will appeal to ladies who prefer colored hair, and the full fringe gives the style extra oomph: easy 10/10 haircut.
47. Modern Mid-Length Haircut with Curtain Bangs
Blonde haircuts can look boring sometimes, but here, it’s fun and catchy. Maybe it’s the center parting or the model’s smile, but something about this style just lights it up, qualifying it for a place on here.
48. Bouncy Side-Parted Haircut with Feathered Layers
Feathered layers typically result in bouncy looks, and in this haircut idea, it looks pretty dope. The side parting also looks heavenly, and with that brilliant smile, the style’s natural beauty is no surprise.
49. Double Bun Curly Hair
You may want to avoid buns on thin hair, but when they’re small and subtle, I think there’s no harm in getting them. This model didn’t settle for one; instead, she got two tiny buns on her thin curly hair, and I must confess, it’s glamorous.
50. Copper Thick Curly Hair with Fringe
If you loved the curly look from the preceding hairstyle, this one should also work for you. Since it’s a brighter shade of red, it’s perfect for ladies with a knack for flashy colors, and the curls create natural bangs to allure the style.
