18 sexy hairstyles for long hair you need to try
1. Straight and sleek
Contrary to popular belief, sexy haircuts for long hair don’t have to be over-complicated. In fact, sometimes the simpler the cut and style, the more glamorous it can be – just look at Diane Guerrero’s sleek, glossy hairstyle.
2. Wispy top knot
3. Hollywood waves
If you’re after a classic but super sultry hairstyle, look no further than Hollywood waves. This iconic hairstyle is frequently rocked by numerous A-list stars on the red carpet and it never disappoints.
4. Side-swept waves
This style of glossy, voluminous waves will never go out of fashion and is a sure way to ramp up the glam factor of any look. Plus, as Anna Kendrick demonstrates here, tucking one side behind your ear is a genius way to show off your favourite earrings.
5. Mermaid waves
6. Retro bangs
Split bangs, like Jameela Jamil’s give a flirty, retro feel to sexy haircuts for long hair. With their grown-out length and the option to pin them back if you want to, they’re a newbie-friendly way to try a fringe without the commitment.
7. The loose and long plait
In need of simple and sexy hairstyles for long hair? Then you need the styling power of a braided ponytail, that’ll really help you ooze sex appeal for your night out. Why not opt for something a little softer, like a loose plait a la Sophie Turner?
8. Rapunzel braid
Thought braids couldn’t be glam? Think again. Make like Jasmine Sanders with a slicked-back high braided pony and wear with red lipstick for a super sexy look.
Editor’s tip: Find your plaits always fall out? The TONI&GUY Flexible Hold Braid Balm is our secret weapon for any braided hairstyles. It can be applied to either wet or dry hair before styling to give your braids more structure and hold to help them last.
9. Boxer braids
If your date night plans are more low-key, you might not want to go too OTT with your hair. Sara Sampaio’s sporty boxer braids are a great way to keep your hair neat and out of the way, making it perfect for the cinema or bowling.
10. Half braided headband
When you want to wear your hair down but still want a way of adding detail, headband braids will do just the trick. Paris Hilton‘s half braided headband is sweet and sultry all at the same time, making this the perfect V-Day or anniversary hairstyle.
11. Low ponytail
12. High pony
One way to spice up your standard ponytail? Look to singer Christina Milian, who has styled her long hair into a high, side pony, and completed her look by securing it with a slick black ribbon. Ooh la la!
13. Hair ribbon
Your presence is a gift, so remind everyone how much of a present you are by adding a hair ribbon to your look. One of the biggest party hair trends of the moment, it’ll elevate even a basic pony in an instant.
14. Half-up ponytail
Too indecisive? Thankfully you can cross one difficult decision off your list (that’s whether to wear your hair up or down), by borrowing style inspiration from Lily Aldrige’s captivating half-up ponytail.
Need a last minute look you can do in a flash? You star Hari Nef shows us how to get in on the headband trend revival with soft, sultry waves and a black satin headband.
16. Bobby pins
Who needs fancy accessories when there’s bobby pins? Dove Cameron’s sleek centre parted style is proof that humble bobby pins can still make a statement and look just as stylish as more elaborate hair clips.
Always wear your hair straight? An understated way of channeling the retro look, Priyanka Chopra’s subtle bouffant adds body and volume to her straight style, making it look even more amazing.
18. Half-up bun
You can’t go wrong with a half-up bun, whatever the occasion. To make it look more polished, use a curling wand to add some voluminous waves through the lengths.
