Rapunzel, Rapunzel Let Your Hair Down!

Get the curlers out and the hair straightener hot because what can’t you do with long hair?  Long hair is always in style and all you have to do is find a perfect long hairstyle to suit your face, skin tone and style. With these most popular hairstyle suggestions of 2010 for long hair, you won’t ever run out of ideas!

Curly Wavy Hairstyle

Curly / Wavy Hairstyle

Whether it’s naturally curly or wavy, a great look especially in summer is to wave it out. With a beautiful front swept side fringe, you will feel like a star. Best way to achieve this look is by using a hot curling wand or roller curls. But my number 1 way for styling my own hair is using my GHD straightener, believe it or not but if used right the curls are salon material.  This look is a great way to go for if you have long flowing locks and want a sexy, sassy look!

Some may be lucky and have naturally dead straight hair, but even if you do, get hold of a straightener and rock the straight edge look. Dead straight hair is a great style for long hair to really show its length. The best results for straightening your hair are with a great hot ironed straightener, to get the maximum length by flattening the roots of your hair. Also for good results, you may use a blow dryer. The straight hair look always goes well with the part right down the middle or even a front fringe. Let that Jennifer Anniston, Eva Longoria or the Tyra Banks come out inside you.

Side Ponytail Hairstyle

Now this hairstyle has been very popular in the last year. Being able to have straight or curly hair with this style, it promotes glamour and beauty. Giving that bed hair look, yet still looking classy enough for a cocktail party. This hairstyle can be done by yourself or for best results done by a hair professional.

Classic High Bun Hairstyle

After a quick and easy hairstyle that won’t have you starring in the mirror for hours? Also to keep your hair care free and out of your face, this hot summer. It’s a must with long hair to know a few bun hairstyles.
Really long hair is the easiest to get up by bending at the waist and hanging the head downwards, then gathering the hair first in a ponytail. Stand upright, brush the hair out and wrap it into a bun shape, securing with bobby pins. Wrap a pretty scarf around it for a very casual look, or leave wisps of hair hanging down in front of the ears for a more evening classic look.

Low Bun Hairstyle

Lauren Conrad is a massive fan of rocking the messy low bun look. Now this one is the easiest of them all. All you need is a few bobby pins and lovely long hair. A great idea is to also tease the top of your hair to give it some height and scrunch your hair into a ball and start sticking those bobby pins in, or even use a hair clip. For best results, ask a friend to help you .

A few hair cut tips for long hair…………

Layers – if you are one of the lucky ones who have naturally thick, straight and long hair, it’s a great idea to add some layers. Layers are the perfect haircut for long hair because they add body to flat hair, texture to thick hair and control to curly hair, while giving out a lovely frame for your face. But be careful too many layers may have you looking like you just stepped out of the 80s with a mullet, so all in proportion!

Fringes – Front Fringe- A great way to break up your long locks is to throw in a front fringe, many people like a fringe for they can easier hide behind. But it is also a great way to transform the shape of your face.

Side Fringe – for a more softer look to your face, add a side fringe. It looks great on long hair and especially if you have layered hair, it tops the style off!

I could go on and on about different hairstyle you can do with long hair, the list is endless. But these are a few basic tips to help you style those long beautiful locks! So get your comb out while in front of your mirror and start exploring these great looks, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

OMG! I loved Lauren’s hairstyle. How gorgeous she looks.

I have medium length hair and i mostly do nothing with my hair except leaving them loose or tying a pony tail. I love doing messy buns in summers but that’s about it.

I like getting different hair styles but I have never used straighteners or curlers myself. i would love to some time. :)

Thanks for sharing this article, Emma. It’s very useful. :)

My hair is naturally wavy, so generally its like in the first pic, but i am into side ponytails ever since i saw hayden panitiere in one. She is such an inspiration, she does her hair in soo many different ways, plaits, open, buns, messy,neat, straight wavy.. every pic of hers has something to learn from !!
