What Kind of Hairstyles Suit for Long Hair
Nov 02, 2023
Long hairstyles look fantastic even if they are simple. If you’re lucky enough to have long hair but are unsure about how to style it, you’re in the right place.
Not everyone can manage to grow their hair long. Some simply can’t surpass a “genetic length”, others struggle with brittleness, and sometimes, long hair can just be a burden — it is literally heavy.
Here are 7 of the most beautiful, eye-catching long hairstyles for your inspiration.
Chic and Trendy Hairstyles for Long Hair
#1: Straight and Chic
This cut gives you sleek, chic texture and shines with long layers and perfectly feathered ends without sacrificing length. The idea is to create shape and give your hair movement.
#2: Long Layered Ombre Hair
Snag this style by asking your stylist for short layers and long ones, but none in between. Extreme layers are ideal for fine hair because they add so much movement and volume. This style will take your ponytail to the next level!
#3: Burgundy Hairstyle
Fabulous long locks can look more luscious than ever with loosely curled ends. Blow-dry the top two-thirds of your hair straight. For the bottom portion, use a round brush to add volume to your ends. Or try a thick barreled curling iron on low to medium heat.
When going for a bold color it’s best to opt for a simple cut so the effect is interesting, not overwhelming. Crisp lines and blunt edges provide the perfect base to a vivid hue.
It’s easy to get sucked in by trends, but there’s something to be said for timelessness. Blonde highlights and long lengths give life to a beautiful look that never goes out of style.
#6: Long Blonde Hair
Blonde hair never goes out of style. Not as stark as platinum, this is a cool-toned bleached look with an ashy wash, plus subtle champagne and peach highlights to add dimension. If you’re not a natural blonde, you can still get this style with the high balayage technique, where your roots are left dark but given a similarly cool undertone and expertly blended with the bleached strands. Like all blonde hairstyles, this one requires maintenance. Stock up on toner and hair masks, and be prepared to re-color regularly. While it’s more of an investment than other hair color changes, the results of going blonde are incredibly beautiful and worth it.
#7:Long Black Hair
Black hair is an eye-catching color choice that looks dramatic and bold on long hair. Think full-on femme fatale! Depending on the warm or cool undertones in the dye, black hair can also suit any skin tone – although those on the fairer end of the spectrum should note that it will emphasize any paleness in your complexion. Ensure you don’t look washed out by opting for a cool black and treating your dark tresses to shine-enhancing treatments. Statement make-up will also look great when teamed with this striking color. Olive and deep skin tones can get away with more natural-looking long black hair; a warm black will pick up the equally rich tones in your complexion.
