Hair Cuts for Long Hair

When you’re wearing your hair long it can be easy to get stuck in a style rut. To break free of this we’re showcasing some hot and trendy haircuts for long hair to inspire you.

Flaunt it Like Fergie

We love Fergie’s style and her hair is the icing on that sassy cake. Her long hair is enhanced with layers which add shape but what makes this style so loveable is the big, flipped back curls she has. To create this yourself simply spiral two inch sections of hair around a large barrel curling iron, separate with your fingers and define with a little hair was. It’s super simple but the impact is a casual yet very chic haircut for your long hair.

In with a Bang

Bangs are hot right now and when coupled with a sleek layered cut the result is stunning. This haircut for long hair relies on wispy layers around the face that are strategically carved in via a straight razor. The full bang frames Jennifer’s face perfectly and adds contrast to the lighter layers below. To style simply add some smoothing balm to damp hair and blow dry with a large paddle brush. Use hair wax to separate and tousle the layers.

Easy Does It

We chose this haircut for long hair as a starter cut for those who are afraid of layers. Here Sarah Michelle Gellar’s hairstyle proves that even a long, side-swept bang and the minutest of layers at the bottom of your hair adds some flair to an otherwise one length and boring cut. If you’ve been resisting layers now there’s no excuse: these won’t hurt a bit!

In case you haven’t guessed, layers are where it’s at. If your long hair is out of shape it’s time to glam it up with some shorter lengths.

While I was looking for example pictures of long hairstyles to show you I came across this one of Beyonce. I’ve got my own thoughts on this style but I’d love to hear yours.
