When you’re feeling bored or fed up with your long hair, it can be tempting to go for a drastic chop to spice things up. But before you rush to the salon, take some inspiration from these super-simple and beautiful hairstyles for long hair below. You’ll fall back in love with your long hair in seconds!
1. The Half-Up, Half-Down
The half-up, half-down is the easiest way to take your hair from drab to fab. Take sections of hair from around your ears and put it in a bun or pony at the back of your head, and secure in place with grips and hairspray. If you want to get creative, you can twist or braid the hair for a cute, summery look. Effortless and easy, this is a winner for anyone looking for a new hairstyle.
2. The Texturised Look
For this look, work mousse into damp hair for added oomph and then dry and style as usual. Finish by misting your hair with lashings of salt spray and dry shampoo to give you serious off-duty model vibes.
3. The Messy Bun
There’s a reason the messy bun never goes out of style; it’s chic, it’s effortless and it’s just a little bit sexy as well. The trick is not to be afraid of dry shampoo and using all the grips you can lay your hands on. Wear it high, wear it low, or for a twist on a classic, add a bun cuff, which are set to be this season’s hottest trend for long hair.
4. The Deep Side Part
Spotted all over the red carpet recently, the deep side part has come back in a big way. To style your own hair like this, all you really need is a comb and a bit of hairspray to keep this hairstyle in place. If you’re bored of your long hair, then something as simple as changing the part can really liven up the look. And this is a super glam, bang on-trend way to shake things up.
5. The Bouncy Blow Dry
You can’t go wrong with a blow-dry, and when it’s a DIY job you’re also giving yourself an intense arm workout. That counts, right? Take a wide-barrelled brush and a hairdryer and go to town, drying your hair pointing the nozzle downwards and wrapping each section of hair around the brush as you go. Finish with hairspray and this voluminous, bombshell look is yours.
6. The Plait
With a hundred different ways to style the plait, from fishtail to waterfall, there’s no reason plaits should be boring. Incorporate them into one of the half-up, half down styles we looked at above, or loosen a thick braid at the back of your head for a relaxed, chic vibe.
With all this hair inspo (hairspo, anyone?) there’s something to suit all of you long-haired ladies out there. So put down the scissors, pick up a can of hairspray and some grips, and get ready to try one of these hairstyles for long hair!
