Easy to Manage Hairstyles for Long Hair
If you think standard pigtails are overly plain, why not try something trendier? Pigtail plaits are the mature version of this schoolyard style. The hairstyle follows a three-strand braid while leaving tendrils of hair along the sides of the face, which function as the perfect facial frame.
This style also uses a three-strand braid that, when performed correctly, resembles a chain of hearts. The hair is first gathered at the nape of the neck and secured. The hair is detangled before the stands are separated into three equal parts. The braids are secured by a scarf or cord tied around the base for an impressive look that is perfect for work or play.
Knot Your Average Pony
This alternative to the standard ponytail is achieved by your stylist pulling the front of your hair back into a half ponytail. The hair is twisted as if it’s about to be put into a bun. Once a single loop is created, the hair is knotted through the bun and secured. This leaves the ponytail long and loose. The look can be finished off with a barrette or bobby pin for an effortlessly cool style that works for any occasion.
For this sophisticated look, a texture product is first applied to your wet hair. The hair is then brushed over to one side before it is fashioned into a ponytail and braided. The hair is braided into two sections, each crisscrossed over the other to form a fishtail appearance. The look is finished by loosening the braid before the bottom is secured with an elastic band.
Fake bangs can be purchased at any wig store. Making them look authentic can be tricky. If you have enough length to your hair, you can use your long hair to fake the appearance of bangs. This works especially well with curly hair textures. The best method is to form a reverse ponytail with the hair falling forward over the forehead. A scarf can be added or a headband to make the bangs look more realistic.
A messy bun is achieved by piling your hair on top of your head, then casually arranging it with a few tendrils hanging loose. It’s all about the texture with this unique look. With a few tweaks, you can alternate between dressy and sophisticated, depending on the style you aim to achieve.
The bubble ponytail is easy to pull off. First, your stylist will add hairspray with light hold and texture before brushing your hair back into a simple ponytail. The base is secured with a scrunchie or hair tie. Next, spritz hairspray is applied onto the bristles of a toothbrush, which is used to smooth over the crown of your head to control any flyaway strands. The ponytail is then brushed with slight teasing near the base. Your stylist will then add hair ties every few inches down the tail, pulling at the sides between each bubble to add volume.
This long hair style uses an oversized barrette to collect the hair at the nape of the neck. This style is perfect for all hair types, whether your strands are straight, wavy, or curly. Texturizer gel can be used to ensure the clip doesn’t move around while going about your day.
This hairstyle is also easy to achieve with a few accessories. All it takes are a few face-framing braids to achieve a look torn out of the pages of a 60s magazine. Use the clips to form tiny braids that can be left undone. Your stylist can help you play around with textures and shapes to make this look truly your own.
This popular hairstyle looks complicated at first but is easy to achieve at the salon and manage at home. The look is started by working hydrating cream into your hair dry. A decorative hair stick is then twirled into the hair until it forms the desired shape. A few inches can be left at the ends. Next, loose hair is spritzed with hairspray and brushed out. The remaining hair is secured with bobby pins for a gorgeous twist that will turn heads.
Elongated French Twist
This long hairstyle offers an alternative to the classic French twist. Your stylist uses a few bobby pins to hold your hair in place while leaving the top slightly raised. This hairstyle works for all hair textures but works especially well with curly hair.
This easy-to-manage look is achieved by brushing the front strands of your hair into pigtails. The braids can then be softly blown with a hairdryer and heated with a curling tong on medium heat. This hairstyle looks amazing with naturally curly hair.
