Proof You’re Not Too Old For Long Hair

Pin Straight

Give your long hair a polished look by getting it pin straight with a hair straightener and glossing it with a shine spray.

Tossed Into A Rope Braid

If you’re tired of the usual French or Dutch braid, try weaving your strands into a chic rope braid. 

Half-Up Half-Down

For a polished look that keeps your hair out of your face, you can’t go wrong with a half-up half-down hairstyle. 

A Simple Side Part

If you don’t like the way your hair looks parted in the middle, a small side part will help you change things up.

Copy Cher

You can never go wrong when you copy the iconic Cher. Mimic her ’60s hairstyle and go for a pin-straight, center-parted look. 

Style A Low Pony For Hats

If you want to top off your outfit with a sweet beret or stylish hat, sweep your long hair into a low ponytail and throw it over your shoulder. 

Lightly Curled

If you have straight hair, you can add some bounce to your ‘do by lightly curling your ends. They will delicately fall over your shoulders and add some body to your look.

Rake Your Bangs Back

If you want a little more volume on top of your head, rake back your bangs or top layers, and pin them high on your crown. The added height will balance out your long length. 

Perfect Your Curls

Long hair adds weight to your strands, and this can result in a limp style if you have long hair. Invest in shampoos and styling products that specifically tease out curls to make sure your coils are well taken care of. 

Get Long Layers

If you love long hair but wish it had just a bit more movement, then get long layers. They won’t be obvious and won’t take thickness away from your hairstyle, but they will help your hair move more. 

Wear Your Hair In Natural Styles

If you have natural hair, try styling your long tresses into dreadlocks or braids. You can then style your hair into a series of easy-to-make ‘dos, like this half-up, half-down look. 

Play With Braids

While you can’t go wrong with a ponytail braid, you can have even more fun with plaits. Try leaving your hair down and fashioning small braids down its length. This will not only keep the hair out of your face, but is a stylish and playful ‘do for the day.

Channel Your Inner Beach Babe

Give your hair a beach-y, laid-back texture by using sea salt spray in your tresses and scrunching your hair. The end result will be undone waves.

Try Braided Waves

If you like a little wave in your hair but don’t want to damage your tresses with heated tools, then you can add natural curls with the help of braids. Go to bed with loosely braided pigtails, and when you wake up you can shake them out for a subtle curl. 

Bring Pigtails Back

Pigtails won’t look childish if you make them loose, slightly messy with hair tendrils framing your face, and accented with a hat.

Use Headbands

Hair accessories are your friends, especially thick headbands. Wear one low to your forehead and bundle your hair on top. The end result will be a playful, ’80s inspired look that still feels modern.  Source
