Easy, Beautiful Styles for Long Hair

If you are tired of styling your long hair the same old way, here are some new styles for you to try out. These easy, beautiful hairstyles will make your shiny, lush locks stand out from the crowd.

Long Curls

First, wash your hair and use a deep conditioning treatment so you get healthy looking hair with great shine.

Blow dry your hair with a round brush. Then use a large barrel curling iron and roll one to two inch sections around the barrel in one direction and then again in the other direction. This will create a wavy, ripply effect.

Use shine spray to maximize your glossy locks.

Naturally Wavy

Use anti-frizz and leave-in conditioner throughout your wet hair.
Wrap a towel around your head to soak up moisture. Don’t rub – that will counteract the anti-frizz.

Unwrap and let your hair air dry. Don’t comb or brush. You’ll get sexy, natural looking waves with no effort whatsoever. If your hair seems too flat, fluff the top and ends with fingers.

Controlled Curls

Mix leave-in conditioner and hair gel to give you wild but not out of control curls. Put through hair generously, then use a wide tooth comb. Scrunch and let air dry. If you can’t wait for that, blow dry on low with a diffuser. Hit with a shine spray for beautiful, bright curls. This works beautifully for thick, coarse hair, but can be used on any hair texture. If your hair tends toward fine texture, go light on the hair products, and you’ll get the same effect.

Wild and Wonderful

Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. (You can skip this part if you have thick or coarse hair.) Use a texture amplifier all over, but with special attention paid to the mid length and ends of hair. Blow dry while raking your fingers through your hair. You’ll get big, beautiful hair with lots of volume, and you’ll look great.
