Regardless if it’s left loose or tied up, long hair undoubtedly looks absolutely gorgeous. From having a bob cut to growing my hair out, I love that my waves always spoke for themself. Most of the time, I leave my hair open, but it gets boring after a while. I don’t want to chop my locks off or colour it purple or something, I just want to style my long hair differently. Since you clicked on this article, I’m assuming you’re in the same boat as I am - and that’s a good thing! You’re ready to get a makeover! To give you some pictorial inspiration, here are a few ways to pull off long hair without looking like a blob of meh.
If you don’t have naturally wavy hair, don’t sweat. Use a curling iron to make those locks bounce! To make your hairstyle stand out from the crowd, braid your crown area and secure the thick plaits with bobby pins. To give it a beachy feel, you always decorate your hair with flowers and tiny knick-knacks.

This sure isn’t your regular ponytail. A fun hairstyle like this is the perfect way to beat the summer heat and make a fashion statement. To nail this style, you need a bunch of transparent hair ties, a paddle hairbrush and hairspray. Begin by tying a high ponytail, leave an inch and move to the next section. Secure that part with an elastic band and gently pull and fluff the hair in between both elastic bands. Continue the same for the rest. Once you’re done, spray some hairspray so that your pony looks neat and pretty!

When you’re running late and you don’t want to settle for a top knot or a pony, give the hun-bun a shot! It gives a messy and carefree look to your avatar. Nailing this style is easy, divide your hair into sections. Gather all your hair from the crown area and tie a high bun. Yep, it’s as easy as it sounds.

Women who have really thick hair should consider trying this hairstyle! It starts with the Dutch braid and later gets gathered into a loose fishtail braid. Since the hairstyle is already too flashy, you can skip the hair accessories for this one.

Wear this hairstyle to a party and you’re bound to fetch compliments. The double Dutch braid bun looks out of this world when teamed with glitter and decor. Leave the hair at the back loose and use some hairspray to pull your look together.

Compared to the rest, this is just a simple hairstyle we think you’ll want to try out. A humble braid gracefully sitting the middle section of your hair is bound to get you praise. It looks even better on poker straight hair.
