Take a look at this collection of new and unique hairstyles for long brown hair for some fresh hair inspiration:
20 Hairstyles for Long Brown Hair
1. Voluminous Updo
While you may not generally consider an updo for daily wear, this voluminous iteration is both work-friendly and laid-back at the same time. Use a teasing comb to backcomb the front of your hairline, and then pull the rest of your hair back into a loose twist.
2. Voluminous Roots
Swap out your usual wash and care system and use TIGI Copyright Custom Care Volume Shampoo and Conditioner instead. This duo will give your all-over volume and help you achieve the lifted roots of your dreams.
3. Twisted Half-Updo
This style is as easy as it gets, and it looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. Pull your air-dried hair back into a half-up style and flip the tiny ponytail over and through the base of the style to create this soft, twisted look.
4. Sleek Low Bun
Run Suave Max Hold Sculpting Gel through your hair and slick it back into a sleek low bun. This look is bold and fierce and will stay put all day long.
Skip the hot tools and give your hair a much-needed breather. Let your strands air-dry and style them in a deep side part for some extra visual interest.
6. Pulled-Apart Braid
Upgrade a classic three-strand braid by pulling the plait apart after you tie the end with a hair tie.
7. Tucked Back
Style your hair into a deep side part and tuck the heavier side back behind your ear. Pin it in place with a bobby pin to finish off this soft and easygoing look.
8. Mid-Level Bun
Twist your hair back into a mid-level bun. Pull a few strands out in the front to keep the look from becoming too harsh and rock this laid-back style with ease.
9. Messy Bun
Perfect for vacation days, a morning when you’re running late for work, and (when styled right) for a night out, the messy bun is a style we fall back on over and over again. This is definitely a must-try hairstyle for long brown hair. You can also try our favorite high fashion bun as well.
10. Side Ponytail
Instead of a quick low ponytail that goes unnoticed, pull your hair over one shoulder before securing it with a hair tie.
11. Long Curls
Learn how to use a curling iron on really long hair to create this beautiful princessy style.
12. Classic Ponytail
When in doubt, fall back on a classic. This high ponytail is flirty, sweet and takes about five seconds to create.
13. Pinned Back
Elevate a basic hairstyle for long brown hair in a matter of seconds by pinning both sides of your hair back away from your face. This look has a sophisticated edge without being too high maintenance.
14. Double Halo
Why settle for one braid when you can wear two? Double up on halo braids for double the impact.
15. Curled In
Switch up your usual curling iron routine by directing the curls towards your face instead of away. The results are a classic and chic look you’ll come back to again and again. Extend the look with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4.
16. Brushed-Through Curls
You’re probably familiar with the brushed-through curls technique by now. Simply curl your hair using a curling iron, let the curls through, and brush through them. Skip any hair product to maintain a natural hairstyle for long brown hair.
17. Bucket Hat
Bucket hats have become v trendy over the past season and we don’t see this unisex accessory going anywhere anytime soon. Play up your long brown hair by wearing a hat that’s bright, pastel, or neon to create contrast.
18. Low Ponytail
Keep your hair out of your face but maintain your length by wearing a low ponytail. This is a classic hairstyle for long brown hair! Bonus: use a scrunchie to add some texture and ’90s nostalgia to the look.
19. Waterfall Braids
We love a good waterfall braid style—so why not go for two on either side? This is another great style that helps you maintain your length but keep your hair out of your face.
20. Crimped Braids
Add another layer of texture to your look by crimping it before styling. We love how this crimped French braid came out!
