Long hair can be a hassle if you don’t know what to do with it. We all want to sport that effortless, slightly wavy year perfectly sleek hairdo at all times. Movie characters and shampoo commercials make it look so easy as if we all wake up with perfect hair every day and bad hair days only happen once in a blue moon. But for us, mortal beings, we know that’s not the case. So in order to make your life a little easier here are some hairstyle ideas for long hair that will save any bad hair day.
Hairstyles For Long Hair
A messy bun is good but two buns are even better. Long hair is perfect for creating space buns, low buns or even braided buns for a more put together and intentional look. They’re easy to do and perfect for days when you don’t have the time to mess around with blow dryers and big brushes. Just wrap your hair into buns and you’ll look cute and ready to face the day.
Easy Hairstyles For Long Hair
Ponytails with a twist have to be the easiest hairstyles for long hair. All of them take under 5 minutes to do and the result is way more interesting than a plain boring ponytail. So whether you choose to do a twisted rope ponytail or one with a small side braid to zhuzh it up a bit, or maybe you’ll go for that inverted ponytail with a twist – just know it’ll be worth it.
Simple Hairstyles For Long Hair
In my mind, the simplest hairstyles for long hair are half updos. That way you can get the top layer of your hair to behave and look as voluminous or as sleek as you want while leaving the bottom layer down which looks very effortless. Top buns, twisted half up half down hairdos and half braids are all good choices.
Cute Hairstyles For Long Hair
When you think cute you also think flowers, bows and braids right? Braided crowns are a great way to make any hairstyle seem cute. Making bows out of your hair is actually surprisingly easy and you can make a flower crown from your own hair by twisting braids into a little rosette.
Curly Hairstyles For Long Hair
The main complain most curly-haired people have is frizz and out of control volume. Well here are a few hairstyle ideas that might work. Half up half down hairdos are great for taming the roots of your hair while embracing the voluminous curls. And sleek low ponytail with a poofy end is the epitome of chic if you ask me.
Hairstyles For Long Thin Hair
When you have long thin hair you have two options. You can embrace the fact that it’s thin and do sleek hairdos. Or you can curl it to create more volume and twist it up – that way it’ll look like you’ve got much thicker hair. For a fuller ponytail, you can also do the double pony where you do two ponytails one under the other. Braiding your hair and then pulling at the braid sides to make it fuller works wonders too.
Hairstyles For Long Thick Hair
Elegant loose buns look amazing on thick long hair. Thick boxer braids look especially nice and can work for both a casual run to the gym or a fancy occasion. Thick hair also tends to just look good when let down in soft waves. A great way to make thick long hair look fresh is to do a soft balayage so there’s more depth to your hairstyle.
