The long hair style is hot, which is why many women prefer to have lengthy, free-flowing locks rather than the popular short styles of the day. But long hair can also become boring. In fact, boredom is the number one reason why women get tired of their long hair style and choose to try a different, shorter style. (Like ME!)
The truth is, though, that there are never-ending options when it comes to styling long hair. You just have to know when and how to change it up a bit to keep your long hair style looking fresh, stylish and up-to-date. Yes, it may take a little practice in the beginning, but in no time you will be able to quickly turn out exciting new looks with a few simple tricks.
All you need is 3 simple ways to wear your hair!
Straight and sleek long hair style
A good ceramic straightening iron can help you achieve sleek, silky and shiny tresses in just a few minutes..
The trick to achieving sleek long hair is in the tools and products that you use.
What you need is a high-quality ceramic iron, a shine product and finishing spray.
Simply apply the shine product to your dry long hair and smoothly run the flat iron through your hair from the roots to the tips using about ½” sections.
The ceramic iron will infuse moisture and shine into your long hair style leaving you with healthy, shiny locks that will be the envy of everyone you meet.
Finish off your long hair style with a little bit of finishing spray, and you’re beautifully prepared to face your day.
You can style your long straight hair in any way you like. Keep an eye out on my instagram account for my “how to’s” on various different straight hair styles.
Textured and curly long hair style
If your long hair already has some curl or wave, you can accomplish this style with very little effort.
All you need to do is use a little gel and scrunch your curl into place with a diffuser blow dryer.
Once you do that, simply spritz your long hair style with an extra hold styling spritz.
If you have been blessed with poker straight hair, you can achieve the same look with tools, such as rollers/ curling tongs/ curling wands or even a hair straightener.
The trick to making this long hair style look natural is in the products that you use and how you use them.
Be sure to use a good quality spritz and finishing spray.
Use the finishing spray to spray your long hair before and after you roll it, and use the spritz to add shine and finish your style.
By applying spritz to your long hair style and gently running your fingers through the curled locks, you can achieve a natural look with a lot of shine.

Updos and long hair style
An easy way to change your long hair style is to wear it up.
And I’m not talking about a simple ponytail here girls.
This may take a little creativity, but with a little practice you can have your long hair style swept up into an exotic style that only takes a few seconds to achieve.
French twists are always a classic as are bun variations and pulled-through pony tails.
Again check out my Instagram in the next coming months to see some of my updo’s for medium length hair (I’m trying to get long hair again, it just takes time haha x)
Another fun way to make ANY hairstyle different is to accessorize! Adding in a scrunchy, a headscarf, a hat, or even gems and jewels gives any hairstyle a MUCH different look and feel.
Have a little play around with all kinds of hairstyles and keep posted as I will be putting up my top 20 hairstyles within the next month.
Now that you have a few different ideas on how to change your long hair style, it’s time for you to practice. Good luck. And remember that the long hair style never needs to be boring or predictable when you have all of these options.
