Long straight hair can border on boring, especially if your style has gotten dangerously repetitive (hello hair-down hairstyle, we’re looking at you!). Because it’s usually flat and limp, with so much weight pulling it down, it has the tendency to look dull and dreary, so if you prefer this length, you have to make a little extra effort to keep it interesting.
But the great thing about long straight hair is that with a little creativity, it can be your best asset. Jazz it up with texture, add eye-catching details, use a cute accessory, sprinkle with tiny braids here and there—a little accent goes a long way!
We’ve put together a gallery to help you get inspired to switch up your looks every now and then. These easy hairstyles for long straight hair should give you the nudge in the right direction. Go show off those gorgeous styled locks!
