Long hair is a gift that you should definitely be taking advantage of, so flaunt your flawless hair with styles that accentuate those gorgeous long locks! Here are our the top 5 long hairstyles you should be wearing this winter:
Undone Side Braid
With it’s loose and purposely messy pieces, the undone braid is romantically chic and is a go-to style for any event. This braid is perfect for all of you ladies who either don’t have the time or the motivation to completely style your long locks. The messier the braid the better, so don’t fret if you’re on day four of not washing or styling your hair...it actually helps (yay!). For emphasized body, use a volumizing or texturizing spray on your hair and tousle it a bit to give it that glamorous, messy look. Take a thinner curling iron or wand and slightly curl random pieces throughout your hair, the best part is you only have to do a few different strands to get the best results! Then do a traditional three-strand braid starting at the nape of your neck and going to one side of your head. Braid all the way down and then tie it off with an elastic hairband, leaving a few inches of your ends below the band. Now comes the fun part; mess up your braid a little by softly pulling out the sides and loosening some of the strands and you’ve just taken your normal braid from boring to beautifully boho-chic!
Not everyone is blessed with luxuriously long hair, so take advantage of it by wearing styles that compliment your gorgeous long locks. The infamous half-up curled style is both elegant and versatile, and that is why it has landed a spot as one of the top 5 long hairstyles for winter. Start by curling your entire head how you normally would, then pull up the top half of your hair back and tie it off with a hairband. You have the opportunity to display your unique identity by adding personal touches to this simple style. You can braid both sides of your part into the band, create a twist at the back and secure it, or even do a fun little bun with the top part of your hair. The options are endless, so you could try a different one for each day of the week!
This dramatic side-swept hairstyle is easier than it appears, and looks even more ravishing when you have glamorous long locks. If you know you’re going to be trying this style in advance, add a volumizing mousse or styling foam to your wet hair to boost its body. Use a thick barrel brush when blow drying your hair to enhance your hair’s volume and give it that significant movement. Loosely curl your hair with a big barrelled wand and then lightly comb through the curls to create that relaxed look. Sweep all of the curls over to one side to create that far part and spray with hairspray to secure it. Use hairspray and a brush to firmly comb the other side of your hair behind your ear, and you’ve got a lavish look ready for your red carpet closeup.
Sleek Low Parted Pony
This low-maintenance look is an easy way to transform your hairstyle from weak to chic! Start by parting your hair down the middle, and smooth out your hair by using your straightener. Use a shine serum, light gel, or luster spray on the middle part of your hair down to the ends (avoiding your roots). Comb down all of your flyaways and pull all of your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Use a spritz of hairspray for the finishing touches to smooth out all of your hair and secure this flawless style. Never underestimate the power of a polished pony, this style will have you feeling both confident and capable!
Make the most of your length with these luxurious long vintage curls. This style is timeless and elegant and can be worn casually cute or dressed up for fancy festivities! We are in love with these vintage curls on long hair and we just had to make it one of our five favorite long winter styles. For the best results, start with smooth and straight hair and then section it off horizontally into two sections (top and bottom). Curl the bottom half of your hair normally with a thick barrel curl, about 1.25-1.5 inches wide with a clamp. For the top half, turn your curling iron horizontally so that it is parallel to your part. Pull the strand of hair away from your head and thread your hair over the barrel and clamp down on the top of the section of hair for a few seconds. Then put the iron below the wave you just created and thread the hair under this time and clamp down again. Continue this over-under pattern all the way down the section of hair to create a soft wave pattern. Comb through the waves with your fingers to loosen the waves and then give the top of your hair a tease for extra body and volume. Give your whole head a light coat of hairspray to secure it, and then you’ve got a classic look that you’ll want to flaunt at all of your upcoming events.
