Long hair has an undeserved reputation for being difficult to style. So not true! We took some inspiration from the catwalk to find five easy-to-replicate looks for long locked lasses.
It may be simple, but a centre part paired with super straight long hair has a striking impact. When recreating this look, it's essential to first prep the hair with a nourishing, heat protecting product like L'Oréal Professionnel Nutrifier de Brushing.
The Side Mermaid Braid
A long, loosely plaited mermaid-esque side braid is the epitome of boho chic. This undone looks takes mere second to create – and the casual vibe of the style means you don't need to be too precise with it. This look works especially well on textured, second-day hair.
Old Hollywood Waves
When you need to up the glamour factor, you can't go past a wavy, Old Hollywood-inspired hairstyle. Instead of a curling iron (which can be tricky to use consistently on longer hair) simply wear a tight side braid all day and release it just before you're ready to head out. A mist of shine spray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Shower Shine completes the look.
The Glam Low Bun
Never underestimate the power of a deep side part! For days when you want to just throw your long locks into a low bun - but still look like you've made an effort - try first creating a deep side part.
It may not be summer quite yet, but beachy waves are perfect all year round! Use a large barrel tong to create haphazard waves through the lengths. Finish it off with mist of sea salt spray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wildstyler Beachwaves for a textured, tousled finish.
