Hairstyles for Long Hair

If you've got long hair, then you're the envy of many women around the world. Long hair has been viewed as feminine and romantic for ages, and can work for everyone. However, long hair comes with benefits and drawbacks all its own. So if you're seeking a beautiful style for your long hair, read on!

It's crucial to keep your long hair in good condition. Healthy hair is always going to look better than damaged hair, regardless of what style you choose. Always use shampoo designed for your hair type, followed by a complementary conditioner. Once a week, use a deep conditioning treatment to keep hair in top form and get regular trims to discourage split ends. To protect hair from sun damage, always use a protective spray or leave in conditioner that contains sunscreen.

When it comes to styling your long hair, layers can be your best friend. With layers, you can have more control and add more versatility and volume to your locks. Long layers can add interest to hair without removing length.

Your facial structure will often be a determining factor when it comes to what long hairstyle you should choose. For round faces, try parting your hair in the middle and using a flat iron to straighten. The long, sleek look will naturally help elongate your face. You can also try pulling up the top portion of your hair with a clip and letting the sides hang freely. This will also help thin and lengthen a round face. For a heart shaped or oval face, try layering your hair with the shortest layer falling around cheekbone level and the longest somewhere below the shoulder. Sweep bangs to the side to take focus off a high forehead and soften a pointy chin. For a square facial shape, try setting long hair on hot rollers for voluminous waves that will soften sharp features.

The right haircolor can enhance long locks and make them look even more romantic and beautiful. To ensure a natural look that complements your features, never go more than two shades lighter or darker than your natural haircolor. Ask your stylist for foil highlights to add a natural, sunny look.

For an easy, sporty style that works on any long haircut, pull your hair back into a high ponytail and allow a few strands to frame your face. Or, twist your hair into a loose bun, pile on top of your head, and secure with a few bobby pins that match your hair color. You'll get instant and effortless glamour that people will think took you hours to create!
