Long hairstyles don’t need to be a nightmare to get right. Especially now that we’ve rounded up all our favourite celebrity ‘dos to give you instant inspiration!
With long locks the possibilities are quite literally, endless. Kim Kardashian for instance, is the perfect example of somebody who’s not afraid to experiment with plaits, ponytails, topknots and more.
Struggling for daytime looks? Delve into the realm of plaits and braids with a loose side-plait like Olivia Palermo, or if you’re feeling adventurous, there’s the fishtail braid, waterfall braid and even plaited buns. Talking of which, buns and messy topknots are ideal for a quick bad hair day hair fix. Twist it up, leave your knot in all day and come evening, you’ll have tumbling tousled waves just like Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel.
Need a new idea for glam evening hair? We’d like to draw your attention to the ever growing varieties of bouncy blow-dries a la Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Scherzinger and Kate Middleton. Full of body and volume, they’ll see you from date-night cocktails to dancing all night, without falling flat.
Then of course, there are curls and waves. Fancy vintage Hollywood hair like Rita Ora’s red carpet go-to? Or perhaps you’d prefer lovely loose waves with plenty of shine (waving wand at the ready!), just like Modern Family star Sofia Vegara? And we haven’t even started discussing Kate Moss’s signature sexy bed-head hair yet, or the wear-anywhere saviour that is beachy waves!
Long hair is the most versatile of all. You can wear it straight and sleek one day like Kendall Jenner, then rough-dry, curl and switch it up to completely change your look the very next morning.
Yep, it’s safe to say, long hair is awesome. You just need to know what to do with it! Cue our jam-packed long hair inspo gallery…
