Editor’s tip: Create height around the crown and use the VO5 Instant Volume Powder to build the perfect amount of volume for your look. Then just gently smooth back into a low ponytail and secure – yep, that’s all there is to it!

12. Retro waves
Ah, retro waves, how glamorous you are. The vintage style gained notoriety in the 1920s on short flapper hair, but has since evolved into a staple hairstyle for long-hair vixens on the red carpet. So let’s just take a moment to appreciate how well Tyra Banks rocks long blonde hair with Hollywood waves!
13. Hair slides
We all know that the quickest way to give a hairstyle a fresh new lease of life is to throw on a hair accessory or two! So when Reese Witherspoon stepped out with this ‘do, jazzed up with some carefully placed, edgy hair slides, she transformed this style from ordinary to extraordinary!
14. Half-up half-down
As you may have guessed, we’re big fans of a half-up, half-down look, as there are simply so many variations; ranging from glam, to everyday ‘dos.
We love how Heidi Klum has given the style a fabulous makeover by teaming her dirty blonde tresses, with a high half-ponytail and sleek, voluminous locks. A red carpet-worthy look indeed!
15. Simple braid
If you’re a no thrills kinda gal, but you still want to look as if you’ve made an effort, then this simple braid is the way to go. It will bring plenty of interest and style to your look, as well as being a practical look for both day and night.
16. French braid and curls
Turn heads with one of our favourite and edgier hairstyles for long blonde hair. Part Viking warrior Princess and part rock star, we love the combination of a sleek French braid paired with glamorous, tumbling curls.
17. Headband braid
Just when we thought our love for braids couldn’t grow anymore, we come across this winning look. Here we see smaller braids on either side of the head, which work together to create a headband effect.
This chic way to rock braids gains extra style points thanks to the volume in the crown of the hair and the straight blonde locks. Perfection!
18. Side pony
Throw it back to the ’90s and give your long blonde hair a dose of old school style with this low, side ponytail. Keep your strands frizz free and up the glam factor by creating plenty of movement and texture in the lengths of your hair.
19. One sided French braid
For instant cool, follow in the footsteps of this influencer and rock a French braid that’s been tightly plaited against your head, on one side.
Secure the end of your braid with bobby pins, then let the rest of your locks fall tumbling down. Leave the rest of your hair loose, for off-duty glam, you just can’t beat.
20. Undone waves
When it comes to hairdos, our girl Kim never put a foot wrong. Fear not though, you can recreate this look even if you don’t have a glam squad on speed dial.
Simply straighten your locks until they’re smooth and sleek. Take large sections of your hair and curl with a large heated wand, before brushing your hair until you have just a slight wave remaining. Now this is how you rock undone waves, Hollywood style.
21. Voluminous ponytail
There’s nothing like a high voluminous ponytail to give your locks instant style points. Start by giving your hair a killer voluminous blowdry, making sure to curl the ends.
Next, sweep your long blonde hair up and off your face, securing your ponytail at the very top of your head. Wrap a small section of hair around your hairband to hide it away and finish off by giving your locks a good spritz of hairspray to keep everything in place.
22. The low bun
If you want a demure look for your next night out, then take a leaf out of Poppy Delevingne’s book and recreate this sweet little number.
Begin with a deep side parting and then sweep your tresses in a lose bun, secured with an ultra chic hair clip, for maximum style credit. Pull down sections of your locks to frame your face et voila: you’ve got yourself an easy peasy low bun for all occasions!
