Rejoice, guys! Medium hairstyles are taking center stage this season. For years, long and short styles have been the haircut and styling standards. But now, the new breed of trendy haircuts allows you to let go of the scalp-suffocating top knots and shoulder-length manes and go for something much more stylish and versatile in the middle.
