Popular “Long” Galleries

While we feature literally hundreds of galleries, some of the more popular ones with long hair include:

Beach Waves

You can’t get much more natural than beach waves. The salt-strewn tresses create a carefree yet stylish look.

Here’s how to create gorgeous beach waves:

Spray your hair with a heat protectant

  • Curl the hair with a wand or curling iron, leaving the ends straight,
  • Tug on the coil to loosen it and prevent tight curls, and
  • Once all of your hair is curled, spray with a texturizing or volumizing spray and break up the curls once more using your fingers

Who says you have to spend a day at the beach just to get beautiful waves?

Soft Curls

If you want to create luscious, volume-rich locks, look no further than the soft curl.

For this look, you want to curl your hair in different directions and leave the ends uncurled to avoid tight ringlets. This will create that soft, natural look. Spray your hair with a flexible hold hairspray, then gently run your fingers through your hair, to loosen the curls.

Soft curls are elegant and classy, yet you can wear them either formally or casually.

Super High Messy Bun

Ever feel like just rolling out of bed, throwing your hair in a messy bun and leaving the house? Well, you can! Super high messy buns are totally in, and they’re totally cute!

Here’s how to create a grungy yet polished bun:

  • Pull your hair into a loose ponytail as high as you’d like,
  • Using another hair tie, create a loose bun, and
  • You can use bobby pins to secure the bun and prevent it from flopping around

This style is simple, easy, and perfect for those lazy mornings.

Messy Side Braid

If you want a style that’s even easier than a messy bun, try a messy side braid.

Swoop your hair to one side, put it in a loose braid, then gently tug sections of the braid to loosen it up a bit. You might even want to pull a few pieces of hair out around your face to create an ultra-messy look.

Layered or One-Length Cuts

The type cut you get is just as important as the way you style it. Try a layered haircut to add volume and texture, or go for a chic one-length haircut. Layered cuts are perfect for those loose waves or curls, while one-length haircuts are great for those who like to wear straight hair.
