Long hairstyles have long been a favorite of the young-at-heart as well the jet-set and glamour girls. Whether curly or straight or layered into a shag haircut, long hairstyles exude confidence and up-to-date style. Let's look at several latest trends for the best look with long hair.
Whether you're a supporter or not, you can't argue
that Sarah Palin has brought back the business casual, long hair Updo.
In the past two months there has been a resurgence of the once popular
style. Popularized by its sophisticated and versatile look, the long
hair Updo works well with eyebrow length bangs as well as a pull-back
and over the ears.
Its versatility comes from the non-nonsense
business look when pulled-back with the ponytail folded over or under,
as well as the more casual appearance when the ponytail is allowed to
The greatest versatility of the long hair Updo comes
from the classic iconic "let your hair down" option at the end of the
day. It allows a transition from business to casual a snap while making
curly or straight designs work. As an added bonus, the long hair Updo
cools you off during the summer or warmer months. Having hair long
enough to give you this flexibility can be a welcome relief on a hot day
in a suit!
If you are looking for the "I'm a Governor" or
business executive look and want the Family-oriented casual look
flexibility, a long hairstyle with a Updo is the perfect look for you.
The Long Curly or Straightened Look
weekend at our son's Lacrosse game I overheard a conversation between
my wife and a close friend. This friend's son has one heck of a head of
hair - curly hair...very curly hair in big waves. She commented that if
she didn't straighten her hair with hair products or use a flat iron,
her hair looked the same - big and curly.
Now, if you didn't know
her, this is hard to picture, but she has long (below the shoulder
blades) straight and beautifully colored hair.
She has taken a
long hairstyle and layered it with the first layer brushing her
shoulders and bangs that extend below the ears. This gives her
substantial versatility and a range of looks for her long, curly hair.
for a casual look she pulls her bangs behind her ears and has the
perfect combination of a sorority/soccer mom look - young and playful.
With the bangs long enough, she can pull them straight back and pin with
a clip, scrunci' or beret. This gives her the business look she is
after at PTA meetings and the hair style looks great.
rarely done, she can leave the hair natural and get a great long, curly
look. Albeit she takes care to use hair products - leave-in conditioners
and moisturizing shampoos - to avoid tangles and the "bird nest" look
all too common when long curly hair is left unchecked.
hairstyles are coming back - fast! They are sophisticated and can give
you great versatility and fashion options. Curly or straight, thick or
thin, long hair can be beautiful and right for any occasion or
