Must Have Long Hair Styles

Long Hair Styles

Punch up Your Long Hair Styles

It is the time to wear hair long hair styles primped to its finest. Amy Winehouse showed us that a long hairstyle can be worn to the extreme, but this year the extreme is done with grace. Just because the hairstyle is long doesn’t mean you have to let it dangle in that goody two shoe manner, it is high time to infuse those long hairstyles with some attitude.

 

Long Hair Styles That Make You Appear Thinner

Highlights

A long hairstyle that is worn one length can come across a tad boring and dull, but with the right highlights you can really change things around. A two toned effect will add depth and dimension. Highlights are always a good idea, but changing it up will make things more interesting. Keep the stripes smaller and more blending to the base hair color, and add a few colors to the mix. This will add transition and reflect light-giving-depth to the hair. For more inspiration on highlights check out my article Hair Highlights for All Hair Colors.

Layers

This is a great haircut if you are working with long curly or wavy hair. One of the biggest problems with curly long hair is that the cut lies too flat at the top and explodes through the bottom; before you know it you resemble a Christmas tree. The layers will transform the curls, cascading the hair and making it look fuller from start to finish.

Multiple Layers

When your hair is straight and very thick the multi-layered look can also be a great haircut to use. It removes the excess weight from your hair making it easier to style. However, be careful not to cut the layers too short, all that extra weight removed will allow the hair to bounce up leaving you with a bowl shape at the crown.

Face Framing Layers

Ladies, if you are one of the many who defines yourself as being “hairstyling impaired,” or not blessed with the hands or talent to do your own hair, then look no further. This long haircut keeps all the length through the back blunt, but allows for flattering layers to frame the face. This is a classic haircut that has been revised over the years to bring more attitude to the table. It is important your hairdresser works this long hair style to accentuate your best features. Cut the layers around the face to high light your cheekbones or your lips. And, if you have killer eyes that you want to be noticed chop in an eye grazing fringe to seal the deal. And if your looking for more ideas on utilizing face framing layers as a strategy check out my article Layered Haircuts Are Hot!

Long Prom Hair Styles: So Pretty, So Easy

Long Prom Hair Styles

Long Prom Hair Styles . . . Go Casual, But Shine!

The prom hair routine of not so long ago was a completely different story than today. Lucky you! I have memories of way too much time spent at the hair salon getting shampooed followed by a roller set that was so tight, it left you with a headache and a face lift at the same time. You then sat under the hair dryer till your ears and face turned red. Next came a violent comb-out, in a sort of rip and tear kind of way.

After that came the main prom hair styling technique of the day, RATTING! These hairdressers knew how to RAT, that is, back-combing or teasing, taken to a violent extreme which made your hair like a rat’s nest and stay put for months. Some-how after lots of combing over, spraying, twisting and pinning, voila . . . the masterpiece . . . love-locks.

We all had long prom hair styles, we all looked the same and basically we all them. Tears, were shed by many as they left the salon that hopeful day, feeling older than dirt. And, that’s just what you asked the hairdresser NOT to do! “Please DON”T make me look old.
