8 TRENDY STYLES FOR LONG HAIR …
Ah, the ever-lasting ponytail. With so many different ways to rock a ponytail, you really can’t go wrong. Whether it’s a sleek and severe ponytail or a loose and messy ponytail, you can always spice it up with various accessories, such as headbands.
Tip: Try curling a severe ponytail for added flair.
2. STRAIGHT HAIR
This one may seem fairly simple, but for people with curly hair, it can be a drastic change. If interested, invest in a quality flat-iron. 20-25 minutes in the morning will leave you with a gorgeous, smooth waterfall of hair.
Tip: Play around with your part. Try a side part one day and a middle part the next- it makes a huge difference!
3. CURLED HAIR
Now onto the opposite end of the spectrum. For those of you with naturally straight or wavy hair, 20-25 minutes with a quality curler can leave you with breathtaking curls!
Tip: Try going with looser curls for a more fun and sexy look!
This is perhaps the simplest hairstyle on the list. When your really crunched for time, a bun may be perfect for you. There are a variety of bun styles as well, such as severe and loose. Additionally, it works well for all hair types!
Tip: For a professional setting, a severe bun may be more appropriate. If you don’t want it too severe, tease the roots at your forehead before creating the bun.
5. HALF UP-DO
Another fast and simple style, the half up-do can be classy, chic, and perfect for a multitude of occasions! Like the bun, this works for any type of hair, straight, curly and everything in between. Just make sure not too tie up TOO much hair, or else it’ll look more like a ponytail!
Tip: Bangs work really well with this style. Try a style of bangs that match your face shape.
6. CLASSIC BRAID
A classic braid can look beautiful with long hair. However, it gets a little complicated when layers come into play. Braids work best on people with little or no layers.
Tip: Try making it a loose braid for a more relaxed style. Or, try bringing the braid to the side for some variation.
7. FISHTAIL BRAID
This is a fun variation of braids! It may look complicated, but it’s actually rather easy. The only thing is your arm might get tired at the end- but what’s beauty without a little pain? The fishtail is guaranteed to leave you with compliments at the end of the day.
Tip: If you have curly hair, straighten it out a bit at first so the braid has the proper texture.
8. FRENCH BRAID
In my opinion, the french braid is the classiest of braids. Sure, it takes a little practice, but it’s SO worth it in the end. If you don’t already know how to do a french braid, take 30 minutes out of your day to watch a tutorial video and practice. It will be a great use of your time!
Tip: For a fun, flirty summer look, do french braid pigtails. They’re sophisticated enough that you won’t look like Pippi Longstocking!
