Easy Hairstyles for Long Hair
Long layered hairstyles look fantastic even if they are simple. If you’re lucky enough to have long hair but are unsure about how to style it, you’re in the right place.
Not everyone can manage to grow their hair long. Some simply can’t surpass a “genetic length”, others struggle with brittleness, and sometimes, long hair can just be a burden — it is literally heavy. If you’re in the last group, layered cuts are the best solution. You can grow your hair to envious lengths without the heaviness that all that hair carries with it.
Here are 80 of the most beautiful, eye-catching long, layered hairstyles for your inspiration.
The Main Principles of Successful Long Layered Hairstyles
- A layered haircut adds volume to long hair and allows for flexibility when styling. Ask your hairdresser for long layers at the back and smooth, graded layers to frame the face. You can balance the layers with long bangs that can be styled to either side or straight.
- Don’t forget about the details. Consider your personal style when choosing layers. Long layers that blend with one another look smooth and sleek, while a long shag hairstyle looks more undone and messy.
- When cutting the layers framing your face, cut the shortest layer so that it highlights the most flattering point on your face—most often the cheekbones or the chin.
