Many women had the opportunity to grow out their hair during this last year and a half – willingly or not. Now that all the waiting and awkward phases are behind you, you may want a change but aren’t willing to chop off all that hard work of long locks. We don’t blame you! Luckily, there are plenty of hairstyles for long hair that flatter every face shape, soften features, balanced proportions, and make your hair look healthy and manageable while helping you look younger! Here are some trending mid-year long hair trends to inspire you with a change in hairstyle without losing that gorgeous length.
Long layers. A layered look is hot this summer and is an easy change to give your long locks a whole new look. Whether you have fine hair or thick hair, layers are a great option to create depth & dimension, and they also help break up thick, dense hair. Your Rizzieri stylist will determine the length & position of your layers to customize them to flatter your face shape. Long layers are a great way to give your hair more movement, bounce, and texture for a whole new look without losing the length.
Classic Lob. A lob, or long bob, is loved by many for its classic, chic, easy-to-maintain hairstyle. With the ends cut several inches below the chin, it’s flattering to almost every face shape. This season we’re seeing the lob being styled with an off-center part and extra volume at the roots. Although it can be worn wavy or straight, you can style it in many different ways – wavy for a soft, romantic vibe or smooth and straight for chic, understated elegance.
Long locks paired with bangs. Bangs can really give you a dramatically new look by framing your face with shorter hair while keeping your length in place. If you have thick, wavy hair, a fringe with soft curtain bangs is a great way to blend those bangs with your layers to give you a beautiful look. Wispy or ‘piecey’ bangs are great for fine hair. Feeling sassy? As your stylist about blunt or choppy fringe.
Long shag. Remember the rock n’ roll shag style of the 70s? It’s been brought back and revamped for 2021 with more length in the back and long, side-swept bangs to balance out the volume of the shag cut. Personalize this amazing haircut with subtle highlights and lowlights to bring an added dimension to the natural movement of this long shag hairstyle.
Short in front, long in back. Another throwback to the 70s is the hairstyle that was the rocker-chick style of short in the front and long in the back. The new modern take on this style combines the defined front layers of a classic shag cut with the softness of the fringe cut, which is longer and styled to look naturally windswept. Just how much you want to define that short front style with the length in the back is up to you!
No matter what haircut you decide on to accentuate your long locks, keep your luscious long hair in shape with frequent trims and professional haircare products. Split ends and frizz can make your hair look unkempt and messy (but not in the cute, messy-look way). Long hair can be dense so use the right professional products to keep your hair healthy and smooth without weighing down your locks.
