5 amazing hair cuts long hair



BRUNETTE GODDESS

Long hair at one length is drab and boring. Keep your length but spice it up with perfectly placed volume and layers. Swooping side bangs add drama while chin grazing layers frame the face beautifully. Chiseled layers around the neck and shoulders also help to add shape and softness.
Brunette Goddess Long Layered Style for Straight Hair

How to Style:

1. Apply softening creams and serums to your hair after you towel dry.
2. Use a paddle brush and your blow dryer to remove moisture and smooth hair as it dries.
3. When your hair is almost dry, swap out the paddle brush for a large round brush. Use it to really angle ends under and create a soft rounded style.

Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
Round and heart shaped faces will look stunning with this awesome haircut. Girls with long hair who have straight strands will also really love this layered haircut.
Tips:
Flip hair away from the face for a completely different look.


SWEET DIMENSION

Long Brown Straight Style with Bangs and Side Part
How to Style:
1. Apply smoothing cream and serum to your hair and blow dry with a paddle brush to really straighten it out.
2. When your hair is 100% moisture-free, grab your flat iron and detail the style.
Recommended Products:
Invest in a good flat iron. The right hot tools can keep your hair healthy. Infra Shine in a 1” iron size is perfect at creating a seamless and sleek hairstyle.
Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
The side swept bangs and front shaping layers are great for all face shapes. Naturally straight hair is best, especially hair that is super thick.
Tips:
Consider a keratin treatment to smooth out your hair’s texture. Even if your hair is straight, adding keratin to your hair can decrease drying and styling time immensely.


GORGEOUS WAVES

Wavy Long Brunette Hair with Long Fringey Bangs Side View
Awesome waves are contrasted with full thick bangs. The contrasting and blending of colors add to the drama as well. Layers are kept soft and long to help add shape and minimize bulk.

How to Style:
1. Use your flat iron to smooth bangs forward with a slight bevel.
2. Grab vertical sections of hair and curl them with a 1 ½ “ sized curling iron. Curl your entire head of hair, but grab the pieces randomly to create a more natural curl pattern.
3. Use a paddle brush to break up curls when you are done.
Recommended Products:
Moroccan Oil Glimmer is a shine spray that adds an amazing luster and shine to hair.
Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
These fun, forward cut bangs are flattering on long oval faces. They help balance out vertically shaped faces or long foreheads. If you have natural loose curls or wavy hair, this style is perfect for you. But, if your hair is naturally on the straighter side, you’ll just have to become bffs with your curling iron.
Tips:
Use a dry shampoo on day two or three to keep your style going and going. The powder-like texture of the dry shampoo helps absorb oils and adds volume.

CALIFORNIA CURLS

California Curls Long Honey Blonde Style
This sun-kissed hairstyle is radiant and girly. Light caramel strands are slightly curled and wavy creating an easy breezy, laid back style. A deep side part adds to the sweeping fun spirit of this hairstyle.
How to Style:
1. Use a comb to part your hair to the side. The part is extremely deep and starts past one of your eyes.
2. Use a large barreled curling iron and curl the ends only to add some wave.
3. Finish off with a light hairspray or a spritz of shine spray.

Recommended Products:
PrivĂ© has my all time favorite shine spray. It’s perfect for speeding up drying time when wet and offers great heat protection too. Spray their Shine Spray on dry hair before using any flat irons or hot tools for a mirror-like effect.
Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
Oval faces or square shaped faces will be flattered with this soft and girly haircut. Medium to thick hair that is naturally straight or wavy can sport this California look.
Tips:
Try not to use heat on your hair daily. Giving hair a rest from blow dryers and hot tools will do wonders for you hair. Soft, healthy hair is always in style, so make sure you take care of your strands and treat them right.

COUNTRY WAVESFun Flippy Hair with Blonde Highlights - Long Style - Side View

This cute country girl has a fun flip that just need some boots and cowboy hat. Natural colored hair is brightened up with a few highlights. The color and the layers really help make this long hairstyle shine.
How to Style:
1. Start with clean dry hair and use a comb to create a deep side part.
2. Grab a larger sized barrel curling iron (about 1 ¼ “ to 1 ½ “ sized) and start curling the ends of your hair. Grab the ends and curl hair away from the face on each side to create that flippy, swing effect.

Recommended Products:
Always protect your hair before applying heat. Try a light misting product like Haute Little Number Thermal Mist from Sydney Hair Care.
Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
Medium to thin hair that has fine, straight texture is best for this soft sweeping hairstyle. All face shapes can wear this look.
Tips:
Maximize your color appointment. Not everyone needs a full highlight from front to back, just a few perfectly placed foils around the face can make a big change in your look and stay a lot friendlier to your wallet.
