Jackie is our poster girl for lush, long locks and makes us want to flaunt our natural waves and curls with abandon. Regular trims and deep conditioning your mane is important to keep it healthy and help it look so glamorously full and shiny. When you have long hair, you can go crazy with layers of every length.

You can maintain your length and get short layers for non-boring long locks.
