Being blessed with long locks means that your styling choices are endless. But it’s all too easy to get stuck in a style rut, or be so overwhelmed by choices that it’s tough to decide which style to attempt. 
Luckily, we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to create eight easy hairstyles that won’t require a professional – whether you want to wear your hair up or down!
Long hair updos

1. Long Dutch braids

Get the look:

To achieve long dutch braids, begin by brushing your hair to ensure you get a smooth finish. Gather a section of hair from the top of your head then split into three equal strands. Then you can begin to braid, bringing in sections of hair from each side as you continue to braid down. 
Secure at the bottom with a hair tie - you could even try double dutch braids by parting the hair first before braiding each side. If you love a braided style, check out our other braided hairstyles to try this year. 

2. Donut bun

Get the look:

This elegant updo can transform your hairstyle with minimal effort. Firstly, tie your hair in a ponytail, then twist the hair from the pony into a ‘donut,’ before securing in place with another hair tie and some grips. 

You could even braid the ponytail before twisting for a stylish braided bun. To keep this style sleek, apply a small amount of our Weightless Wonder Featherlight Smoothing Creme to smooth frizz and flyaways. 

3. Classic long ponytail

For a totally glam look with minimal effort - try a classic long ponytail. Simply scoop up your hair and secure it with a hair tie. To perfect this look, take a small section of hair from your ponytail and wrap around the base of your ponytail to conceal the hair tie. 

4. Bubble ponytail

Get the look:

Sleek and sporty, yet SO easy to recreate on yourself! Simply tie your locks back in a ponytail and secure extra hair bands down the length, with equal spacing between each band.

5. Long wavy hair

Whilst some people may be blessed with natural wavy locks, for others it may take a little more work to create this effortless look. If your long hair is fine, create volume with our Luxurious Volume Fine to full Blow-Out Spray. Spritz thoroughly through your mane after washing before activating with heat to amplify your style. 

6. Loose curls long hair

If you’re lucky enough to have long natural curls, keep them defined without any crunchiness by applying a pea-sized amount of our Dream Curls Curl Defining Crème to the lengths of your wet or dry hair. 
Notice your curls losing their oomph a few days after washing? We’ve got a solution for that too! Try our Dream Curls Daily Styling Spray to give your curls back their bounce! 

7. Beach waves long hair

It’s easy to spend hours trying to create an ‘effortless’ look, but long beach waves are chic and simple. Braid your damp hair after washing into a loose plait and leave to dry. Once dry, shake out your hair to reveal beachy waves! 

Overnight braids are also an option if you’re in a hurry in the mornings and don’t have time to spend styling. Simply braid your hair before bed and voila – instant morning curls! 

8. Sleek straight hair
