quick n' easy hairstyles for long hair
Posted 8/9/10 , edited 8/9/10
get side bangs or side swept, and long layers.

you can make it wavy, curl it, make beachy waves, crimp it, bohemian braid.

also if your hair is super thick, try buying some styling shampoo so it'll be easier.

i have long hair myself, not as long as yours but its atleast down to the top of my pants when straight ( naturally curly/thin ) A friend of mine has longish thick hair and when she puts it in a pony she usually puts 2 or more hair ties and that holds hers fine. a little gel and a couple of hair ties and your good to go with a ponytail.

well if u cant maintain thick hair..u have to cut it for sure..but i suggest if u have really thick hair..instead of thinning it..u go for straightening..keep it ironed..if it consumes lot of time..cut ur hair in layers and tie it up in a pony tail...maybe you could use a deep conditioner. look at mags and see if you like any shorter hair styles....or best idea..go for JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING.. It permanently straightens your hair and it is frizz-proof. It may be a little pricey in certain areas. It ranges from $175-$700. It goes by the texture and length of your hair. The average price is around $400.hope i was of some help

My hair is also straight and black. Sometimes I do pillow rollers for soft waves. I wash my hair... put some product in it... and when its damp I put the pillow rollers in... next morning I take them out and BAM... wavey hair... and then it's easier for me to style it... put clips in it... pin it up... blah blah... you can get them at target, CVS.. walgreens... they're pretty cheap.



Also... I do pin curls... w/sponge rollers or pins as well... but those are more time consuming. I got ideas from this girl:

Of course... I'm still trying to perfect these styles... but I try... also considering that my hair is thicker and longer... but I do what I can.

Hope this helped.

Hmm? Oh I do, but IDK where you get that info from. The usual price is around $200, and it DOES frizz. And layering your hair in some cases makes it look even thicker.

wowie..that was me like 2-3 yrs ago..my hair was very long, straight, and
i always kept it in a pony tail.
my newest haircut now has some layers and bangs but it's still long & i love it.
you can keep it long with style :)

btw, for the ppl who thinks that layering your hair will make it look thicker, it doesn't always.
my sisters have very thick hair and every time we go to the hair salon, we have our hairstylist
cut their hair with a certain kind of scissor to make it thinner.

I've got pretty long, thick and black hair too and when i've just washed it, it's so flat! It does nothing and i have to constantly apply heat to it but it does work. I would just recommend heat protection when applying heat (although, i'm a hypocrite because i never use heat protection...)
But what i do is quite complicated so i'll put it into steps:

1.) split your hair into a side parting

2.) Get straighteners and lift up your side fringe. Using the straighteners, curl back your hair, but not so it's extreme and quiff-esque. Just so it's more voluminous.

3.) Do this to all the hair near the front of your face, including near your ears and on the other side of the parting.

4.) With the roots of your hair, use the straighteners to straighten up and then curve them down, so it creates more volume with your hair

5.) Don't use hairspray or moose unless it's really light, because the feel makes your hair go all funny. I would recommend wax instead, and just stroke it through with your fingers and push upwards as well, to create a more bigger do.

6.) This is optional, but if you have layers, then i would use the straighteners to curve the ends inwards and then use wax to push it all up a bit more.

6.) Fin!

This looks just creates more volume so it's not so flat, but it looks great if you also put your hair into a bun or a simple ponytail. Also, the side plait looks good with this and it's very 'Alexander Wang'. Look on google images for "Alexander Wang S/S 10" and there's loads of pictures of the plait and the kind of style i aim for on a daily basis

Hope this helps...
