Wear it Down

Obviously, long, free and blowing in the breeze is a popular look. Throw in some hot rollers or use a gentle curling iron and loosely comb through your hair for loose curls and a tousled, messy-on-purpose look.

Or use your flat iron for a smooth and sleek super-straight look that just screams “sophisticated.” The choice is yours. (Or you can alternate, going curly one day and straight the next!)

9. Headbands


Designed to keep your hair out of your face, headbands are the classic, preppy way to style your looks. Add some clip-on bangs for a fun look. Experiment with the length and fullness of your bangs by trying different clip in styles. Grab some super skinny headbands in a rainbow of colors. Or choose wider headbands covered in fabrics like plaids, polka dots or velvet.

8. Pigtails


Contrarily to popular belief, pigtails are not just for toddlers. In fact, they are very popular for older girls as well. Go high or low for your starting point, and you’ll find a look you like. Pigtails are great for a hot summer day when you’re working in the garden, playing sports or just hanging out in the summer sun.

7. Princess Leia

Princess Leia

1977 had disco, bell bottoms and Princess Leia. The men of Star Wars were great, but everyone loved (and still loves) her hair. Great for costume parties or science fiction conventions. Have some fun with the sci fi fans in your life and try this look.

6. Braided Bangs

For a different look, you can French braid your bangs, starting on one side of your head and working your way across. Tuck the end behind your ear and use a bobby pin to pin it in place for a decidedly Swedish flair.

5. Feathers


Another cute thing to do with long hair is to add feather clips in vibrant color hues. This temporary look is fashionable and on trend.

4. Classic Updo

classic updo

This is a favorite of brides everywhere, and it calls for lots of bling, hair clips and glittering accessories to keep it all in place. But why wait until you get married to wear a classic updo? Sporting an updo with jeans and heels is a great way to create an eclectic and stylish look. Head to a trusted hair stylist to learn how to do this style. It can be tough to do on your own hair, especially if you’re not experienced at doing hair.

3. Fun Colors

Fun Colors

Adding a bit of color to your hair does not have to be reserved for the month of October. Bright pink color highlights or a streak of purple in your bangs just shows off your fun-loving personality. Go with hair chalks for a temporary burst of color, or dive in and pick a permanent hair color for long-lasting intensity.

2. French Braid

French Braid

Another classic long hair look is a French braid. Like the up-do, this style might take a lesson or two, plus some practice. But the look is purely feminine. For an extra element of style, try braiding in a ribbon or string of beads as you go. It’s a look that will have people stopping and asking how you got that amazing look!

1. Chignon


Popular Savings Offers

This hairstyle is everything we love about updos combined with that tousled, whispy look we love. A few loose curls escaping from your chignon only adds to the overall effect. This is a great look for a romantic date, a special occasion, or just because.
