Your hairdresser can craft intricate styles that appear effortless, but nothing feels more satisfying than creating effortless everyday styles yourself that seem difficult. Check out these creative ways to style long hair – everyone will admire your locks!
Low ponytails are timeless and elegant looks that are quick and simple to achieve.
The twisted bun is an iconic updo that works great for any occasion. Feminine and romantic, the look goes perfectly with dresses as well as casual blouses and jeans. Additionally, this look can easily be achieved using bobby pins and hair spray.
To achieve a well-made twisted bun, start by pulling your hair back into a ponytail. Twist the ponytail around itself and tuck the ends underneath the base of the ponytail, securing them with bobby pins for additional security. Finish off with some hairspray to maintain the style.
Longer-haired women can enhance the twisted bun style with an upswept side braid or halo plait for an added element of uniqueness. They can also experiment with fun colors or textures to show off their temp fade cut styles. This style will elevate formal attire and highlight temp fade cut styles.
The middle part is an ideal style choice for long-haired individuals as it helps frame the face. It offers versatility and can be worn in various styles. You can iron your hair pin-straight or add waves for a more casual look. Pairing the middle part with a hat can give a polished and sophisticated appearance.
To add an eye-catching twist to a natural middle part, consider adding highlights. Highlights frame the face and create a more balanced finish.
If you have naturally curly Afro hair, creating a middle part is a quick and easy way to highlight its unique texture and add fullness to the style. Use texturizing spray and pomade to enhance the piecey effect when blow drying your strands.
If you want to look elegant at an event but lack the time for intricate braids or tight topknots, a low ponytail may be just what you need. It is perfect for any formal event and works beautifully when combined with side bangs.
To create an elegant low ponytail, start by creating a middle part and securing your hair at the nape of your neck. Take a small section from the front and wrap it around your ponytail elastic to add volume and glitz to your look.
Braiding can also elevate a low ponytail, adding elegance and texture. Criss-cross the ends for a sophisticated finish. This hairstyle is great for special events as well as everyday use at work or school.
Fishtail braids are an easy and elegant way to add texture to your smooth locks and give your hair a boho chic vibe.
To achieve a fishtail braid, start with a deep side part on the left side of your head. Grab small sections from each side and alternate braiding until you reach the end of your hair.
If your braid keeps unraveling, try using BLAX Clear Snag-Free hair Elastics ($6) as they will hide the elastic and be less noticeable.
