To throw a little light on it: a medium length cut covers the area from the jaw line to the neck. So, if you have round face, then chin length medium length hair will throw focus on your bone structure, making your face appear fuller. On the other hand, if you have a long or squared face then you can add softness to the area by keeping a neck sized or till jaw line cut; and can even add to the effect by keeping hair a little longer with soft layers.
