Long Straight Hairstyles That Aren’t Boring

1. Straight Blowout

Okay, okay, we know that long straight hairstyles worn down aren’t exactly new, but there’s a reason it’s always on standby – it just works! Instead of busting out your trusty flat iron for pin straight hair, try doing an at home blowout for something a little different. Instead of giving you straight hair that can end up looking thin or flat, doing a blowout gives you fluffy, voluminous straight hair. See? We told you it was different and easy! Hooray!

2. Sleek Ponytail

For a non-boring ponytail you may not have ever worn before, try out this super sleek style. To get the ultimate polished look, apply some of the TRESemmé Tres Two Mega Firm Control Gel to your hair and comb through it with a fine-tooth comb. Then, pull your hair into a tight, low ponytail and wrap a section of hair around your hair tie to complete the look. Get sleek, sister!

3. Half-Updo

When is the last time you’ve seen piecey long straight hairstyles? Usually the piecey look is saved for curls or short hair. We love how this half-updo gives straight hair a little more edge. This is a great style for second day hair that already has a bit of a messy, piecey look. Just some of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist to give your hair a cleaner look. Then fashion your hair into a half up ponytail, using a front section of hair to create a cool, faux side bangs look.

4. Straight Bangs

All hail the bangs! If you’re looking for a change without loosing all of your length, opt for a modern fringe. We love this look on long, straight hair that works for everything from date night to a night out with the girls.

5. Vintage Vibes

For a flirty hippie look on straight hair, add in some fun skinny braids. You can do as many or as few as you want to get this vintage look. What you definately need to do is rock this look with a perfectly straight center part. Add on a flower crown to really seal the deal.

6. Baby Beehive

We really love the look of textured long straight hairstyles for a night out. And one of the easiest ways to do it is to add volume by teasing your hair. You can use some common teasing techniques to create a fuller mane, or you can follow this tutorial to recreate this mini beehive hairstyle.
