6 Non-Basic Long Straight Hairstyles for Going Out

Straight styles that aren't the same-old, same-old.

When it comes to hairstyles for going out, you want your hair to look fun, without being dull or taking forever to create. Tall order? We think not. With long straight hairstyles, you can rock everything from the typical blowout to bangs to updos and more. Ready to find your new look? Read on to discover some of our most favorite long straight hairstyles for your night out on the town.

1. Straight Blowout

Blow-dry your hair straight and curve the ends in for a more voluminous look.

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 Twisted Ponytail

Change a regular low ponytail by adding a twist!

For a non-boring ponytail you may not have ever worn before, try out this super sleek twisted 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 the top and bottom sections of hair into two separate ponytails. Next, split the top ponytail in half and secure the two ends together under your bottom ponytail .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 feel. Spritz TRESemmé Clean Pro Pure Dry Shampoo 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

A polished fringe is always a good idea.

All hail the bangs! If you’re looking for a change without losing 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 definitely 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

Have fun with your straight hair by trying out a new straight hairstyle.

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. Once your beehive is complete, finish off the look with Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold & Frizz Control Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Hair Spray.
