Even though I don’t actually have it right now, I still love checking out nice styles for super long hair. I’m planning for the day when I finally have enough patience to let my hair grow out past my shoulders. Long hair is incredibly versatile, so it lends itself well to a lot of gorgeous hairdos. If you’ve got long hair or if you, too, are waiting (im)patiently for the day yours finally reaches the length you want, then check out these styles for super long hair!
1. Sleek and Straight
One great style for super long hair is keeping it straight and sleek. Even if your hair is naturally straight, a flatiron really helps with this style. You want to get your hair as sleek as possible – but you don’t want to damage your hair for high fashion. When you try this look, make sure you use the proper protective products, like a good styling spray.
2. Wavy and Textured
While long, loose curls have long been the go-to trend, waves are making an impact now. Long hair looks gorgeous with waves, especially if they have a lot of texture. You can complement this look with a bit of light, thin fringe. Keep your bangs straight for a really great look.
3. A Classic Bun
Long hair looks great in a bun. This look is classic, elegant, and incredibly easy when your hair is long. Actually, it’s quite versatile, as well. You can go with a chignon, a sleek bun on top of your head, or something messy and fun!
4. Shoulder Length Bounce
Here’s another gorgeous style for super long hair – and it fools the eye, as well. This look is ideal if you want to try shorter hair, but you don’t really want to cut it. All you have to do is set your hair in large hot rollers, creating curls with a lot of bounce. This will make your hair look inches shorter, creating a lot of versatility.
5. Blunt and Banging
Blunt cuts look stellar when you’ve got long hair. All you have to do here is get your hair trimmed at blunt angles. You can do it with the ends of your hair, of course, but you can also complement the look with blunt cut bangs. The key is to ask your stylist to make sure the center pieces of your bangs hit below your brows.
6. Pretty with a Pouf
You might not think that a pouf is a good style for super long hair, but as long as you go easy with the bump, it’s beautiful. You don’t want a lot of height, you just want a little bit of volume. This look is especially pretty if you part your hair in the middle and leave the front strands loose. Tease your hair at the crown, and then create a ponytail low on the nape of your neck.
7. Hollywood Glam
Finally, you can also go curly in a Hollywood glam kind of way. Long spiral curls are absolutely gorgeous. All you really need is a one inch curling iron and a lot of patience. Trust me, the end results are well worth the effort!
Those are some seriously gorgeous styles for super long hair. It makes me that much more impatient for mine to grow out – but it’s so hard! Do you have any tips for growing out your hair once it’s been cut short?
