Yeah, you could do the time tested #longhairdontcare straight long locks, but why not up your game? Get creative with curling and flat irons, play peek-a-boo with curtain bangs… and don’t even get us started on the endless braid possibilities out there.
14 Sexy Hairstyles for Long Hair
1. High Ponytail
The high ponytail is one of the classic sexy hairstyles for long hair that you keep going back to for two reasons: one, the “swish” effect—the way your hair moves across your shoulders can be mesmerizing; and two, it’s the perfect way to show off both your face and your hair at once.
2. Box Braids High Ponytail
3. Accent Braid
Create a single face-framing French braid, and then keep the rest of your hair loose. One of the many easy sexy hairstyles for long hair that’s on this list.
4. Middle Part and Crimped Details
Give yourself a middle part, and then with a flat iron, crimp sections of your hair midway through the shaft. Before you touch that heat tool, spray on Dove Style+Care Smooth & Shine Heat-Protection Spray and protect your hair from heat-induced damage.
5. ’80s Bangs
Go retro-sexy with a thick full fringe and some volume at the crown. Back comb hair and then set it with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 for a long-lasting hold that keeps hair touchably soft.
6. Box Braids and Waves
Wear your box braids with loose ends in a half-up style.
7. Loose Curls
8. Braided Updo
Who says updos are all about placing your hair on top of your head? Create a braided updo with hair long and loose. Braids are easy to create on second-day hair. Use Suave Professionals Natural Refresh Dry Shampoo to freshen up your locks; infused with Argan oil, it also adds shine.
9. Blue Ombré and Curls
Toss on blue ombré highlights and create big, loose curls to show off that hue.
10. Halo Braid
Using the halo braid tutorial, create a partial halo braid, and then leave the rest of your hair loose.
11. Tiny Braid Updo
Go ahead and create an updo, and then make it sexier with tiny braids. Use Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil to moisturize your hair and add shine.
12. Slick It Back
Yes, long hair can be slicked back. The trick is to slick it back around your hairline, then keep the rest of the hair straight and smooth. Your secret weapon is TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Firm Control Gel.
13. Deep Side Part
Whether you have relaxed hair or not, a deep side part, where you can peek out from your bangs is very sexy.
14. Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs, a.k.a. peek-a-boo bangs, are bangs that can come down to the middle of your nose. You can wear them straight across or swept to the side. Like a deep side part, any time you’re peeking out from long hair is a hallmark of sexy haircuts for long hair.
