5 Seriously Cute Hairstyles for Long Hair

By
February 27, 2014

Caught in a style rut? Whether you’re bored with your wardrobe or makeup routine, you can always shake things up by changing up your hairstyle. These cute hairstyles for long hair will help you take advantage of your long strands and show you the versatility long hair has to offer. Enjoy!

Half Up

This adorable long hairstyle is a classic. Pulling half of your hair up is a fabulous way to create a fun style while still showing off your length. The long side bangs are left out and parted for a more modern twist.

Half Up Pretty Hairstyle for Long Brown Hair

How to Style:

  1. Style your hair to the texture you desire – straight, curly, wavy, etc.
  2. Tease the top of your head for a little bit of a cushion before pulling hair back.
  3. Use a brush to smooth hair back and secure with a clip or bobby pins. You can pull the bangs back if you want them out of your face or opt to leave them down as shown.

Recommended Products:

GKHair Global Keratin Light Hold Hairspray. It’s always a good idea to spritz a little bit of hairspray on roots after you tease them for hold.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

The longer bangs and the way the hair is styled in this particular photo make this hairdo great for rounder shaped faces. The beauty of this half-up scenario is that it works well with any hair type. Sweet!

Tip(s):

If you are afraid of messing up any iron work you did prior to pulling hair back, you can always touch up your strands after hair is pulled back and secure.

Lovely Layers

The midnight colored layers in this cut make this long hairstyle simply divine! Short layers are cut on the top and medium length layers are cut throughout for tons of depth and shape. The hair is curled and bangs smoothed out for a incredibly cute hairstyle.

Lovely Layers Pretty Look for Brunette Hair

How to Style:

  1. Start with the right cut. Bring in a photo to show your stylist what you’re looking for. The layers on top may look too short, but they are what give this hairstyle that amazing volume and shape.
  2. Blow dry hair with a paddle brush. Use a round brush on the short top layers to create intense volume.
  3. Grab a large barrel curling iron and put some waves in your strands to finish off your look.

Recommended Products:

CHI Thermal Protection Spray. Give your hair heat protection from the inside out against styling and finishing damage from the hottest heat tools.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round shaped faces will be elongated by this hairstyle. Super thick hair that is naturally wavy or slightly curly will be able to pull off this look.

Tip(s):

Ask your hairstylist about colored extensions. They are so much safer on your hair than bleaching and coloring! There are tons of bright colors to choose from and they add an instant pop of fun.

Texture Tango

This fun hairstyle has contrasting textures. The bangs are blunt, stark, and straight, while the lengths are long, soft, and curly. The two differing elements create a very interesting hairstyle that is actually quite fabulous!

Texture Tango Stylish Look with Fringe

How to Style:

  1. Start with clean, dry hair and brush out strands so they are free of any tangles.
  2. Plug in your flat iron and your curling iron – you’ll need double the hot tools for this hairstyle!
  3. Use the flat iron and take thin horizontal sections of the bangs to smooth out. Flat iron the entire section of bangs so they lay forward and flat.
  4. Use your curling iron to curl the rest of your head. Spray each strand with some hairspray before curling for a more crisp finish like the one shown in the photo.

Recommended Products:

TIGI Catwalk Mystique Heat Protection and Shine Straight Collection. Spray on strands before using any hot tools for ultimate protection.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Oval or square shaped faces would look great with this hairstyle. Thin to thick amounts of hair of any texture will work.

Tip(s):

Forward bangs can be difficult to grow out, especially when they are bluntly cut. When you decide to grow them, have your stylist texturize the tips so the edge is softer. You will be able to wear them to the side more easily as they grow.

On the Side

This curly hairstyle is pulled up and to the side for a super cute ‘do. Strands are teased on top for a fresh and modern bouffant feel. Hair is pinned instead of tied so it looks less like a side ponytail. We love it!

On The Side Look for Curly Hair

How to Style:

  1. Diffuse your natural curls if you have them, or get to curling with an iron.
  2. When hair is dry and curled, tease the top of the head to add height, then smooth strands up and back into a half up ponytail and secure. Make sure you secure it a little to the left or right so that the finished look is to the side instead of down the center.
  3. Add a little more hair to the back and secure with pins. Keep going down the head towards the neck adding a little more hair each time until all of your hair is pinned.

Recommended Products:

TRESemme Smooth Shine Spray. Spritz this on before and after styling for a shiny glow.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Square, round, or heart shaped faces would totally rock this side hairdo. Naturally curly hair is ideal and lots of it!

Tip(s):

You may not need to tease the top of your head, depending on how much hair you have. Thick curly hair may be enough to create volume on it’s own if you just pin the hair back loosely.

Braided Beauty

This super straight hairstyle is given a fun little flair by the addition of a simple braid on one side. Adding a braid is a great way to break your style rut and it’s so easy to do! The long strands are flat ironed to perfection and the result is beautiful.

Braided Beauty

How to Style:

  1. Part hair to one side and comb through.
  2. Use your flat iron to smooth strands section by section. Move the iron slowly and smoothly for the best result.
  3. Grab a section of hair near the part line on the shallow side and create a simple, three-strand braid.
  4. Wrap the braid back behind your head and secure with a pretty clip or pin.

Recommended Products:

Organix Flat Iron Spray. This finishing spray works to smooth your locks with an exclusive blend of coconut oil, rich keratin proteins, avocado oil and cocoa butter.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round shaped faces with naturally straight hair is best. If your hair can be flat ironed straight rather easily, you can attempt this style as well.

Tip(s):

Add another braid on the opposite side for an even more hippie/bohemian vibe!

Ebony Curls

This super long hairstyle is downright gorgeous. Hair is left smooth on the top, then whimsical curls are added halfway down for a fun and flirty ‘do. Hair is parted down the center and the layers are cut from the jaw line down.

Ebony Curls Long Look with Waves

How to Style:

  1. Apply your favorite heat protecting products to strands and comb through.
  2. Section up the top half of hair so you can manage the hair better.
  3. Curl strands. Start a couple of inches away from the scalp and curl the ends of the hair.
  4. Drop down your top section of hair and repeat.
  5. Run your fingers through to break up the curl slightly and give it a more tousled effect.

Recommended Products:

Redken Smooth Lock Heat Glide Serum. Rub it on your palms and then pull through strands for a silky finish with heat protection.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

The fuller layers make this a suitable hairstyle for oval shaped faces. Wavy hair that is medium to thick is best.

Tip(s):

Consider popping in some old-fashioned foam rollers. Put them on halfway down the hair and run your fingers through strands when you remove them for a great wave that will last much longer than a curling iron.

Blonde Beauty

This pretty blonde hairstyle is super cute for girls with long hair. The texture is wavy and the length falls past the shoulders. Hair is parted slightly to the side and then pinned back just on one side. The layers around the face fall right at the chin to help frame the face. Simply stunning!

Blonde Beauty Pretty Long Wavy Look

How to Style:

  1. Diffuse your hair to enhance your natural waves.
  2. Gently pull hair over and in front of one shoulder.
  3. Pin hair over with multiple bobby pins up in a vertical line and cover with an attractive clip.

Recommended Products:

Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray. Add texture and shine to your hair with this fabulous dry spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round or heart shaped faces with wavy hair texture can easily achieve this look.

Tip(s):

This is a great inspiration for a bridal hairstyle as well. Just imagine it with a tiara or veil!

Coiled Coif

This hairstyle is defined by tons of chocolatey colored ringlets. Hair is parted extremely deep to one side and then pinned back for a totally sweet hairstyle. This look is super cute for a date night or weekend party!

Coiled Coif Style with Ringlets
Coiled Coif with Ringlets Side View

How to Style:

  1. Create a deep side part with a comb and then detangle hair so it’s ready for ironing. Apply a heat protecting serum or spray to strands while you’re at it.
  2. Use a one-inch curling iron to create ringlet-like curls.
  3. Curl your entire head of hair and spray to hold.

Recommended Products:

Moroccan Oil Treatment is a fabulous serum to use on wet or dry hair for heat protection and shine.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

All face shapes would look smashing with this curly hairstyle. Try it on naturally curly hair that is medium to thick.

Tip(s):

Sleep with curlers in your hair overnight for a super bouncy curl that will last all day long. Take them out, spray them with a shine spray and smooth curls with your fingers for a soft finish.

Berry Beauty

This deep berry color looks good enough to eat, just add some Cool Whip! Make the most of your long strands with a fun, striking color. We also love the healthy sleek glow this hairstyle has. Hair is cut with chiseled layers starting between the chin and shoulders and blending down. Layers are cut around the front for interest and shape.

How to Style:

  1. Blow your strands dry and use a paddle brush so they get as smooth as possible.
  2. Follow up with a flat iron when hair is completely dry. Go through section by section to get the sleekest finish.

Recommended Products:

Oribe Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color. The duo does just what it says – protects your color from UV rays and then some. Invest in good products so your color doesn’t go down the drain!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round or square shaped faces with medium to thick amounts of hair that is on the straighter side is best.

Tip(s):

If you just can’t seem to grow your hair out to the length you want, even though you keep it super healthy and regularly trimmed to remove split ends, consider getting extensions to reach the length you desire.

Big Attitude

This stunning braid is incredibly thick and looks simply gorgeous draped over one shoulder. The sleek texture on the top is so shiny it glows! This is a great hairstyle for girls with super long, thick hair who want to keep it up and off of their neck and back.

How to Style:

  1. Smooth out the top of your strands and curl the ends with a large curling iron.
  2. Gently pull hair back and gather with your hands at the lower side of your neck.
  3. Create a classic three-strand braid and secure with a clear elastic tie.

Recommended Products:

Redken Glass Serum helps add a glossy shine to hair.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Any face shape and any hair texture (straight, wavy, curly, etc.) would work well with this side braid hairstyle. It’s ideal for the style to be worn by ladies with super thick hair.

Tip(s):

Twist your braid into a low bun and secure with pins for a stunning updo. It’s so easy to do and people will think you spent hours styling your hair!

Soft Sophistication

This pale, ash blonde hairstyle is parted right down the middle and blown out into a beautiful sleek finish. Strands are curled at the bottom for a fun wavy effect.

Soft Sophistication Long Blonde Style Middle Part

How to Style:

  1. Part hair down the middle and detangle strands when you get out of the shower.
  2. Use a paddle brush to remove moisture from hair. Smooth hair as you go so it lays nice and frizz-free.
  3. Use a curling iron on the ends of hair and use your fingers to break up curls and arrange them into waves.

Recommended Products:

Prive Shining Weightless Amplifier!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round or square shaped faces on fine hair that is on the straight or wavy side works best.

Tip(s):

Fine hair can be weighed down with the wrong products. Stick to foams, sprays or mists that are light and airy.

The Perfect Finish

This blonde bombshell looks like she stepped out of a Charlie’s Angels television show. Her perfectly blown out hair flips back beautifully. The soft wave and more defined curl puts a more modern twist on the style and helps make it fresh.

The Perfect Finish Long Layered Hair

How to Style:

  1. Start with clean, dry hair and part strands right down the center.
  2. Grab a large barrel curling iron and curl the layers away from the face for the flirty feathered effect.
  3. Use the same iron to curl the ends of the rest of your hair for a soft wavy finish.

Recommended Products:

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable Hairspray is super lightweight, but will hold hair in place and smells great.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Square shaped faces are ideal. Straight or wavy hair that is medium to thick is best.

Tip(s):

Crisp, center parts can be unflattering on some, so just move your part to the side to soften up the look if need be.

Straight to the Point

Sometimes it’s the most simple styles that are the most beautiful. This super straight hairstyle is full of elegance and shine. These healthy long strands really seem to glow!

Straight To The Point Simple Hairstyle with Shine

How to Style:

  1. You guessed it – grab your flat iron and plug it in!
  2. Part hair to the side and brush through so strands are tangle-free. Put a little heat protecting serum on your locks while you’re at it.
  3. Go through section by section and slide the flat iron over strands for a super sleek result.

Recommended Products:

Mizani Thermasmooth Smooth Guard Smoothing Serum is a lightweight, leave-in thermal protecting serum that helps against heat styling damage.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Long, straight hair is very slimming and elongating, so round or square shaped faces would look awesome with this style. Obviously naturally straight hair is best, but if you can work a flat iron, then go for it!

Tip(s):

To make your iron time faster and easier, blow hair dry with a smoothing product and a paddle brush. Smooth out strands as much as you can during your blow dry to make flat ironing a breeze.

Strawberry Rose

There are so many fun hairstyles you can achieve with long hair. This cute side ponytail is a great example of that. Strands are given a wavy texture then loosely pulled to one side of the face and secured. Hair is wrapped around the elastic for an added special touch. Add a real or faux flower to glam up your look even more!

Strawberry Pony Shiny Look

How to Style:

  1. Curl or crimp your entire head of hair and brush through. You want to add a polished texture to your strands before you put it in a ponytail.
  2. Loosely gather hair to one side of your neck and secure with a clear elastic band.
  3. Grab a piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic and secure with a pin.
  4. Backcomb your ponytail slightly for volume and texture.
  5. Pull out a few strands around the face for framing.
  6. Pop in your favorite flower or hair accessory and go out on the town!

Recommended Products:

Prive Texture Spray. Spritz this waxy spray on your ponytail and scrunch for a fun textured effect.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

All face shapes and hair types would look great with this pretty side ponytail. Add some bangs if you need to balance out a long face or forehead.

Tip(s):

Not into flower power? Get creative and use peacock feathers, jewelry or holiday ornaments to adorn your hair.

Pretty and Polished

This long hairstyle is well past the shoulders and layered beautifully. The layers start past the chin and help add movement to tresses. Hair is blown out for a soft and sleek finish with a little bounce.

Pretty and Polished Layered Long Style

How to Style:

  1. Part hair to the side. Use the center of one of your eyes as a guide.
  2. Apply a smoothing blow dry cream or serum to strands.
  3. Blow hair dry with a large round brush.

Recommended Products:

Sexy Hair Frizz Eliminator. If you have thick, frizzy hair, this product helps tame strands and makes them easy to manage while imparting incredible shine.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Long, oval shaped faces are balanced out by the longer layers. Straight hair or hair with a little wave is best on ladies who have medium to thick hair.

Tip(s):

Leaving the shortest layer past your chin is a great idea if you pull your hair back into a ponytail often. The layers will still be long enough to reach into the hair tie, but hair still looks fun and stylish when left down.

Long hair can be super cute, wouldn’t you say? With styles ranging from curly to wavy to super straight, you are sure to find the perfect fit for your hair type and personality. And with so many cute hairstyles for long hair to choose from, you can try a new look every day
