The Beauty of Long Hairstyles

Casual Long Straight Hairstyles

The right long hairstyle will bring your natural beauty to the forefront. People will notice your best features and skip over the blemishes. The style of your hair will make a great impression on the people who you meet.

It is the shape of the face that determines your best style. Your hair is the frame for your face, and a great frame can make the rest of you look like a million bucks. The wrong long hairstyles will make you look as if you do not care about yourself. And we all know what they say about first impressions.

The main face shapes are oval, round, square, heart shaped, triangular, diamond and oblong. There are many long hairstyles that you can use to bring forth your beauty. Knowing which type of face shape you are will make it easier to find the best long hairstyle for you.

Some straight, long hairstyles are: the ponytail, feathered hair and Hime cut. The ponytail is hair pulled back and tied with a cord. It can be tied on the back of the head to prevent hair from bothering the eyes.

The Feathered hair was a hit in the 70’s and 80’s. The hair was the length of the ear and some went as far as the shoulder. It was popular with both men and women. It could be layered on both sides and had a part in the middle.

The Hime cut is where the hair is grown down below the shoulder with the bangs cut above the eyes. This popular cut is a very high maintenance hairstyle.

Caring for your long, straight hair is a must if you wish to avoid tangles. Work out tangles with your fingers, be gentle. Do not yank the brush  as this creates breaks and frizzles. Use a name-brand shampoo and massage it into your scalp. You should then wash your hair in cool water. Use good conditioner for your hair as this will protect it from breakage. Pat your hair and let it air dry. Comb and brush through it while it is drying, your hair will keep its shape as it dries.

These can also work for wavy, long hairstyles. Long, wavy hair looks beautiful loose and flowing down your shoulders. You may wish to use highlights on it.

Great and Easy Long Braided Hairstyles

People braid their hair for many reasons. Keeping the hair out of the eyes is one reason, and keeping the hair in place is another. Some braids are traditional and others are custom. There is an air of elegance in braided hair. There are many styles of braided hair that women, over the centuries, have used. There is the Dutch Braid, French Twist, the Fallera, bun and the Yulia.

The Dutch Braid appears to be braided into the hair. It is seen as a backward braid with the strands going under rather than over as the French Braid does. It is used to keep hair out of the way, to look nice and not have to worry about it when out and about.

The French Twist is an updo hairstyle that involves a loose pony tail twisted up. These long hairstyles are used with clips, pins, combs, or even sticks. These can be worn to proms and weddings.

The Crown hairstyle is a traditional hairstyle Ukrainian women wear. It is also known as the Crown Braid that consists of a single braid wrapped around the head. This type of hairstyle is worn by Yulia Tymoshenko.

Chic Long Curly Hairstyles

Long curly hair has a habit of breaking easier than long hairstyles. Curly hair must be air-dried and styled 20 minutes before completely dry. Curly hair cuts best when wet. This way your hairdresser can see its natural shape and cut accordingly. A layered style works well with curly-haired people.

Curly-haired people should get perms. Perms give a curly-haired person great ringlets and more body to their hair.

People want what they cannot have. If you despair at having curly or long wavy hairstyles and are envious of straight-haired people, then realize straight-haired people are envious of curly-haired people. Embrace your curly hair and know that it can be styled in different ways.
