In this article, my aim is to assist those person with the different ideas and styles that they can try.  Some persons may prefer a short look, but remember that long hair never goes out of style.    From simple down-dos and glamorous blow-outs to two-minute up-dos and red carpet ready pony tail hairstyles, we’ve found you a look for every occasion.

Hair styles for long hair do not work that well if the hair is fine, or if the face is narrow and long in shape. But for hair that has a nice medium to thick texture, then there is plenty that can be done. Long hair can take some preparation, due to the amount of hair on the head.

If you are pushed for time, then a classic style such as a pony tail or multiple pony tails can be created quickly. If you are feeling more adventurous and are planning a trip to the hair salon, two styles which are good for those with long hair are the Long Undercut and the Long Graduated Cut.

The Long Undercut is similar to a shoulder length ‘bob’ style hair cut. The hair cut begins at the bottom and works it way to the top. This makes each individual layer slightly longer than the layer beneath it. What this does is to give the hair a heavier look at the ends with a slight under curve.


If the hair is curly to begin with, then the under curl at the ends will be more prominent. The Long Graduated Cut starts from bottom to top. Each individual layer gets shorter as it works its way up and ends by blending into the top. If the hair is curly or wavy to begin with, then this hair style works well.

Also, this style works better on medium to thick hair but not so well on fine hair. Having long hair gives the person many choices of hairstyle. And with the right hairstylist working his or her magic, then the options for different hairstyles are only limited by the imagination of the stylist.

When it comes to hair, there is nothing more appealing and attractive than long, thick, textured and coarse hair. Long hairstyles are a great way to show the glamour and shine of natural hair.

Women have always tried various styles on their long haircuts. Some of the tools like sedu iron, dryer, crimping machine, etc. aid them to style their hair at home. They need not go a parlor or a stylist every time before going for a party or wedding. Some of the most popular long hairstyles for women are straight, curls, waves and layers.


Long curly hairstyles are the best to go with any occasion. They need lots of maintenance, as hair tends to become dry and frizzy. Hair gems, hair accessories and hair pins can be used on curly hairs as adornment. If the curls are large, one can even try for layered hairstyle.

Long layered hairstyles can transform the look of the woman to more attractive, stylish and elegant. Not only curls, layers also look good on straight and wavy hairs. Another choice for long hair is the pony tail, the most common hairstyle having several variations.

The current fashion trend comprises of a range of hairstyles for both men and women. It’s not necessary that all hairstyles suit everybody. Different hairstyles look best on different people depending on their facial structure. Choppy bobs, long waves and shoulder skimming shags look great on oval faces.

Avoid blunt cut for oval faces if hair is thick and curly. Chin length bobs. Side swept bangs, curls, waves and layers are ideal hairstyles for long faces. Extremely long or short cuts elongate the face so avoid these cuts for long faces. Keep long bangs and graduated layers for round faces and for square faces try to cover the angular jaw with any style of curls or layers.
