If you feel like your long tresses could use an update, you can feel inspired and excited about trying out one of these latest and stylish hairdos. We’ve got a great list of chic and elegant hairstyles for longer hair that will give a polished touch to any woman who sports them.

Bouncy Blowout

This hairstyle is ideal for those with thick hair since it helps taming the wild strands and show off the natural texture of your locks. With a round brush and a blowdryer, you can create a beautiful and long-lasting hairdo. It’s important to invest in a good quality styling product in order to keep the look looking polished, full of volume and bounce.

The Messy Bun

This fuss-free hairstyle is great for busy moms on-the-go who don’t have much time to dedicate to styling their hair. It’s also a great way to keep your long locks tamed and off your face. This hairstyle can work on straight or curly hair, and it can be achieved with a few simple steps.

First, gather your hair in a high-ponytail and then separate it into two sections. Loosen one section around the elastic and twist it, then wrap it around the elastic and secure it with bobby pins. After that, pull some locks from the second sections to create a messy look that gives it a more natural finish.

Messy French Braid

This hairstyle looks incredibly chic and elegant, perfect for more formal occasions. To create the messy French braid, separate your hair into three equal sections at the crown of your head and start to weave a classic French braid. Don’t be afraid to give this braid a messier look and pull some locks as you braid. When you reach the ends, secure it with a clear elastic and you’re ready to walk out the door with a stunning look.

Loose Curls

This hairstyle is always a classic and provides a romantic and elegant look to any woman’s hair. To get a nice bounce to your curls, you can use a one-inch curling iron and hold it for 10-15 seconds on sections of hair. To get long lasting curls and keep them looking vibrant, it’s best to use a heat protectant spray. After all the curls are done, use your fingers to comb it through and lightly spraying a texturizing spray to add more volume.

Half-Up Half-Down Curled Style

If you’re looking for a glamorous look for a fancy event, then this style is for you. After curling your hair like pastel curls, use a comb to separate the front from the back and clip the front section of your hair away. Take the front part of your hair and gather it together to create a loose ponytail at the crown of your head. Secure with an elastic or a cute hairpiece. Afterward, lightly pull out some pieces around your face to soften the look and you’re ready to go.

Knotted Bun

This style is a modern and fashionable idea to rock your long hair. To achieve it, separate the front part of your hair and pin it away. Then comb the back of your hair and grab a small section of hair near your neck. Start to knot your hair by twirling it downward until you reach the ends and secure it with a clear elastic. After that, twist the remaining of your hair together into a low bun and pin it. To finish the look, take the front part of your hair that you pinned away before, wrap it around the bun to cover the elastic and make sure to tuck in the ends for a fancier look.

Sleek Low Pony

This style is perfect for when you’re transitioning from day-to-night and you want a chic look for your hair. To create this look, you need to make sure your hair is brushed and free of any knots. You can use a styling cream to help you to take away any unwanted texture or frizz. After that comb all of your hair to one side and secure it with an elastic into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. You can spray some hairspray to help to keep the look smooth and add a little gloss for the shiny glow.

Wrapped Updo

This hairstyle is a classic and elegant look for more formal occasions such as weddings or special events. To get this look, you’ll need to start with a thickly French braided ponytail just below the crown of your head. Then, take the braid and wrap it around the elastic, pinning it in place to create an updo. Finally, use some bobby pins to keep everything in place and you’ll have a beautiful and sophisticated look.

Fishtail Braid

This hairstyle looks complicated, but it’s easier to do than you think. To create it you’ll need to start with a side parting, then divide your hair in half taking a section of your hair from each side. From the outside of each side of your hair, take a small section of hair, cross it over and add it to the inside of the other side. Repeat this process until you reach the ends of your hair, then secure it with an elastic.

To create more of a statement, you can gently pull out some sections of your hair from the braid to create the wavy look. Finally, the last step is to spray with a light mist of hairspray- and you’re ready to tackle with any day in style.
