Short hair has its trends, but long hair has been, and always will be, in. It’s easy to get frustrated and wrestle with long tangles, but these tips for quick and easy styles for long hair will have styling and on your way in no time.

Pick the quick and easy style that you want, pick up the supplies you need and you’ll be celebrating your long, luscious hair.
Quickest Fix for Long Hair – Hair Clips
When you wear your hair long always, always keep a variety of hair clips on hand. The color and style of hairclip you choose is up to you. Minimize your frustration by including large barrettes, small hair pins, and larger octopus hair clips in your collection.
When your long hair is just in the way and you don’t need an all-out style use a hair clip. Pull back the bangs and long hair from the front of your head in a large barrette clip for a professional look. Snap up your long hair in a large clip when you are going casual.
Keep Long Hair Care Easy with Waves
You don’t have to go all out for a kinked up perm to enjoy some waves to your hair. Straight flat hair isn’t always the best look. A body wave is simply a perm using large rods. It gives your hair large, full curls that fall in waves.
The look can be achieved with lots of Big Sexy Hairspray and a large barrel curling iron. If you like the look, keep it quick and easy by getting a professional body wave. Then, you can simply use a diffuser to dry your hair and put the waves in place using a lightweight styling or holding gel.
Quick and Easy Buns and Twists
There is no limit to what you can do with your long hair style if you are willing to pile it on top of your head. I’m not talking about a traditional bun held up with long hair pins. A quick and easy way to have great looking hair that exudes confidence and personality is to simply twist it in a way that feels natural and “right” to you.
These days, anything goes. Tie your hair. Twist your long hair and hold it in place with one or several elastic hair bands. Create a hairstyle all your own by clipping your hair on top of your head and pulling out only the ends to curl quickly, or straighten.
Quick Straighten or Curl for Long Hair with Style
Some long hairstyles take just too much time. The great news is that quick heating, low damage curling irons and straighteners are now available. I have an ionic Remington straightener that heats up in 15 seconds. It’s practically hot before I have time to pick up a strand of hair to straighten.
For quick, shiny results use a leave in conditioner. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just something that works with your hair type to help tame unruly ends.
Using one of the quick heat hair care appliances you can quickly straighten or curl long hair. In just a few short minutes it will look like you have spent hours at a salon.
Quick and Easy Looks for Long Hair – Dress up a Ponytail
If you have long hair you have undoubtedly succumbed to the ease of slicking your hair back and pulling it together in a pony tail. It’s an old trick, but it still works. Pull your long hair through the back of a ball cap for a sporty look.
Use a leave in conditioner or after shampoo product to add shine and luster when you pull your long hair back in a pony and comb through it. Allow the health and luster to be “the look” when you don’t have time to pull one together.
The most important thing you can do to achieve any look with your long hair is keep it healthy. Use hair care products designed to nourish your hair type. Healthy looking hair can be sexy hair no matter how you wear it.
