Long Hairstyles for 2017: Cool Looks to Get On
1. Braids for Fitness
Have you found a girl gang to attend cycling classes with every Sunday morning? Or maybe you’re finally taking advantage of outdoor hiking trails nearby. Even if you only have 20 minutes for an at-home workout, chances are you want to look cute while you reach your fitness goals. A piece-y oversized braid is a great way to keep your hair out of your face while still maintaining a trendy and flattering style. The key to achieving this look is to create a tight three-strand braid using all your hair and then pull it apart for a three-dimensional effect. This style is only improved with messiness so it’ll look cuter the longer you sweat.
2. Hairstyles for Home Bodies
A basic ponytail gets an upgrade with some strategic backcombing and a little bit of the right hair product. Spray the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist onto your damp strands, allowing your hair to air-dry. Tease your hair at the crown of your head and gather it up into a medium-height ponytail. This is a chic and easy style that’s perfect for testing out a new recipe or spending an evening scrapbooking. It’s laid-back and comfortable while still keeping your overall look selfie-ready.
3. Laid-Back Vacation Hair
Ditch your hot tools for this exciting trip and use the extra space in your suitcase to shop while you’re away. Instead of depending on your hair straightener, use the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse to help you to embrace your natural texture. Being on vacation is the perfect excuse to rock a laid-back look and you can spend all the time you saved not styling your strands out on new adventures.
4. Natural Texture for Work
It’s all about finding the balance between conservative and creative when it comes to interview hairstyles. You want to show off your personality but you don’t want to go overboard. We would suggest rocking your natural hair texture and combing your hair away from your face. A little bit of the Suave Professionals Firm Control Sculpting Gel goes a long way and combing a small amount of product into the front of your hair will keep your strands in place.
5. Romantic Updo
Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary this year or becoming a pro at the art of the first date, having a go-to hairstyle to turn to will help you feel confident and ready for what’s to come. Start by creating loose curls throughout your hair and pull them up into a high ponytail. Wrap the strands around the base of the ponytail and pin them into place. Let a few loose tendrils fall for extra romance and elegance. Finish off with a mist of the Dove Style + Care Extra Hold Hairspray to lock your style into place.
