Women's Long Hairstyles

Long Sleek Hairstyles: These are very popular hairstyles for 2012. If you have naturally straight hair, then just get some layers done in your hair. However, those with wavy or curly hair will have to use a straightening iron. These are great long hair styles for round faces, as they tend to cover up the face sides, and the layers make the cheek bone stand out, making the face appear larger. Just side part your hair and comb the hair down, and you are good to go.

Beautiful Long Curly Styles: Long soft body curls look very glamorous. To get soft body curls, you can opt for a perm. But, a safer alternative is to simply use a hair curling solution. For this use a hair curling serum or sea salt spray on wet hair, and then scrunch your hair. Let the hair dry naturally, and you will have sexy looking body curls. Then just part your hair sideways or in the middle and you are good to go. If you don't want to part them, then style them into a bump hairstyle, and let the rest of the hair open.
