20 Awesome Hairstyles For Girls With Long Hair December 11, 2017

Here’s the thing about long hair – it makes you look like a goddess the way no other length of hair can. Not to forget that, at least once a day, you receive this self esteem boosting compliment – “OMG! Your hair is soooo pretty!” Be that as it may, there is a downside to having luscious long hair. A dark side that no one wants to talk about… LOL, just kidding, you probably complain about this like 50 times a day. I’m talking about styling your long hair, of course! Doing any sort of hairstyle on long hair seems to take ages and makes you want to take a scissor and get rid of it. Now, lovely ladies, I would never want you to give in to that frustration. So, here I have compiled my top favorite picks of cute hairstyles for girls with long hair so that you can do easily without ending up in tears!

20 Awesome Hairstyles For Girls With Long Hair

1. Twisted Bun

See, I don’t expect you to drop a pretty dime to get your hair done every time you have a school dance or wedding to attend. Instead, you can do this pretty twisted updo yourself in less than 10 minutes. This bun looks deceptively intricate but is actually super simple to achieve.

What You Need

  • Hair brush
  • Bobby pins
  • U pins
  • Hairspray

How To Style

  1. Brush out all the knots and tangles from your hair.
  2. Part your hair down the middle.
  3. Continue parting your hair till the nape of your neck so that your hair is divided vertically into 2 sections.
  4. Holding each section in each of your hands, tie them into a single shoelace knot at the back of your head.
  5. Take the tail of the section of hair hanging on your right and twist it right till the end.
  6. Roll this twisted section into a circular bun around the knot and secure it to your head with bobby pins and U pins.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with your left section of hair, making sure you roll it into a bun in the opposite direction of the first section.
  8. Spritz on some hairspray to set the updo in place.

2. Extra Long Double Ponytail

You may have super long hair but it may not look as full and long as you want it to when you tie it up in a high ponytail. That’s because you’re going about tying it all wrong. This simple hack of a style uses two ponytails tied on top of each other to give your ponytail fuller body, length, and dimension.

What You Need

  • Texturizing spray
  • Comb
  • Hair elastics

How To Style

  1. Spritz on some texturizing spray all over your washed, dried hair.
  2. Horizontally divide your hair into 2 sections.
  3. Tie the top section of hair in a rough bun to section it away.
  4. Tie the lower section of hair into a mid level ponytail at the back of your head.

  7. Tie the top section of hair into a ponytail right above the bottom ponytail.
  8. Fan out the top ponytail to conceal the base of the bottom ponytail and finish off the look.

3. Braided Flower Crown

When it comes to feminine hairstyles, this one is as girly as it gets. I mean, who wouldn’t love to have their hair look like roses, right? Again, this is a hairstyle that looks like it would take ages to perfect but actually just requires some basic braiding and pinning.

What You Need

  • Hair elastics
  • Bobby pins
  • Light hold hairspray

How To Style

  3. Repeat the previous step on two more sections of hair picked up from either side of the first section.
  4. Loosen all three braids by tugging them loose from the right.
  5. Start rolling each braid in a circular manner (making sure the loosened side remains on the outside) and keep pinning it down flat against your head along the way to make it look like a flower.
  6. Finish off with a few spritzes of light hold hairspray to set the braided flowers in place.

4. Khaleesi Inspired Twist

Embrace your inner queen (or, might I say, your inner Khaleesi) with this Game Of Thrones inspired hair look. This topsy tailed style is a simplified version of the intricate hair look sported by Daenerys Targaryen and looks perfect on long flowy maxi skirts and sundresses.

  6. Topsy tail this ponytail twice.

6. Half Up Bow

Whoever told you that bows only belong on Christmas and birthday presents was gravely mistaken. A bow made out of your hair (as opposed to just attaching a cloth bow to your hair) is sure to make you look like a Disney princess. Add this sweet detail to your hairstyle to make for an innocent and adorable look.
