Wearing a chignon or ponytail tames long hair for an organised workaday look. However, it is fun to play up the beauty of your long hair every once in a while. Besides, you may look much nicer with shiny hair flowing over your shoulders. Long hair can be styled in many uncomplicated ways. We leave it to the stars to showcase beautiful styles for long hair. In our video, we demonstrate how to style long hair with creativity and skill

  • Long silky hair entices and feels soft to the touch. If men had their way women would wear their hair long and open for the sensual experience, which has been part of femininity through the ages. Women on the other hand like to make it harder to touch and feel their hair by gathering it into ponytails, chignons, and braids for the sake of convenience (or so they say). You may like to consider one of the many beautiful styles for long flowing hair instead. These very becoming styles soften your facial features and add to your feminine appeal.

    Remember to allow your long hair to freely cascade around your face and over your shoulders. You may also like to give our styling tips a try. Then go out and enjoy the response of the people around you.

  • Styling Tips for Long Hair

    Long hair needs a lot of care to look good. It is important to use the proper shampoo and hair care products before you style your hair. Hair care series for long hair are designed to meet these demands. Be sure to use conditioner after every shampoo.

    Even if you want to grow your hair longer still you should trim the hair ends regularly. This may feel like a sacrifice but will ultimately keep your hair healthy. Regular trimming also keeps split ends at bay.

    The ends of long hair tend to be dry and they therefore need a nourishing intensive treatment at least once a week. Split end fluids seal the sensitive hair ends and provide more bounce.

    Strands of long hair have a way of falling into your face especially when you want to do precision work. That can be irritating, to say the least. The simple solution involves pinning back these pesky strands.

    Always apply hairspray from a distance of at least 8 inches (about 20 cm) to ensure that your hair remains fluffy and can move freely.

    Don't forget the high-gloss hairspray as a final touch. Lustre is the single most attractive feature of hair.
