Check out 6 awesome hairstyles for long hair which can be easily done under 6 minutes straight!
One of the toughest tasks for most women is to figure a nice hairstyle which can be worn on a day-to-day basis as well as at special occasions. The issue is of greater magnitude if the hair is long. Often washing them a day prior to the D-day leaves them rough and unmanageable. One is either left with an option of blow-drying or just about tying them up in a ponytail or an average looking updo.
However, Zuri truly understands your pain. That’s why we bring to you 6 easy hairstyles which can be done roughly under 10 minutes. From chic ponytails to elegant lace braids, we are sharing simple step by step instructions that can be followed to get a makeover in a jiffy. So, this festive season, look sizzling hot with these gorgeous hairstyles for long hair!
1. Stylish Ponytail:
To achieve a sexy, neat hair look, aim for a ponytail with a twist. Make a high, and tight ponytail. Select a lock of hair (a hairband easily available in the market) and roll up around the point where you plan to secure the ponytail. Make sure to take help of a lot of hairpins to prevent the lock from getting displaced.
2. Lace Braid:
The lace braid hair look is bound to fill your evening with the idea of romanticism and cuteness. Besides, it is best suited for long hair! Just follow these simples steps for a quick, neat look. Take a few strands of hair from the front and braid it properly. Drag the braid under the remaining hair strands. Repeat the same steps. Follow it up by pulling the hair ends together with a black hair band. Use a few hairpins to control the flyways or better still, apply hair serum to keep the rough looking hair ends at bay.
Always remember that no matter what you do to your long hair, if it is neatly done and looks healthy, it will always look nice. Therefore, after a good shampooing and conditioning (which should be done at least a day to two days prior to styling your hair), opt for an elegant braided open hair. This smooth hairstyle adds an oomph factor to your overall look. Also, breaks the major monotony of the poker straight-hair-look! How do you really go about doing it is- first of all, smoothen your hair (use a flat hair straightening iron), now begin braiding from the front and keep on adding more and more locks in. Tie the hair ends with a clear hair band. There you go!
4. Formal Updo:
An amazing and super stylish formal hairstyle for long hair, which is best suited at the official parties, and weddings. This is one of the best tucked inward updos. There are just a couple of steps to follow to achieve this formal hairdo look.The hair is first secured in a high ponytail and then the hair ends are tucked inwards. You might want to use hairpins for a much neater look. Just make sure to hide them well for a flawless looking hairstyle!
5. Elegant Chignon:
You can really be flexible with this hairstyle. There are two options to choose from. One is a low bun/ chignon or a really high updo. In any case, create two braids by pulling out a strand of hair on each side (from above the ear) and secure them in a thin, neat braid. Now, secure these braids as well as the remaining locks in a ponytail. Twist it a little and swirl it into a bun. Use hairpins to hold it firmly in its place.
6. Open Waves:
Want to sport consistent waves? Then, this is it! Braid your hair into multiple braids (at least six) and use a flat iron to create waves. That’s it. Isn’s this an amazing beachy look to sport this season?
