#1: Extra Long Layers for Straight Hair

Extra long layers are a great way to add movement and texture to long, straight hair. This cut works best for those with fine or medium-textured locks. The extra length of the layers allows you to play around more with styling options. Long layers will frame your face nicely if you have an oval shape. But if you have a rounder face, please ensure your stylist doesn’t remove too much length on top. This can further emphasize the roundness. Keep this look sleek with some styling wax. Or create beachy waves by spraying your tresses with sea salt spray. Then scrunch them up in sections with your fingers. Finish off any look by using a few spritzes of light-hold hairspray.

Effortless Long Straight Layering

#2 Effortless Long Straight Layering

For effortless hair that doesn’t need to be straightened, blow-drying with a large round brush can easily achieve this look. This technique gives the long layered straight hair volume and flips that accentuate your layers.

Let your long straight hair that’s thin do its thing. These hairstyles work best if it’s amazingly shiny, so you should use the best flat iron even when you’re naturally straight.

#6 Movement with Long Layers on Straight Hair

For added movement, try a straight-layered haircut with longer layers throughout the interior of your long hair. Add face-framing to open up your facial features and complement your face shape! You can wear this hair up, blow it out, or let it air dry. For this particular style, use Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep and Aveda Confixor Liquid Gel to maintain a frizz-free hold. You also want to use boar bristle round brushes for a round brush hard set.

Feathered Layers for Straight Long Hair

Feathered layers are a great way to enhance movement to heavier hair types. Long hair has a tendency to weigh itself down easily, but layered hair with face-framing pieces will simply add some feather-like shape which gives flow and style to your beautiful long hair.

Long and Dark Straight Hairstyle with Middle Parting

#9: Long and Dark with Middle Parting

The look is a long and dark hairstyle with a middle part. I recommend a middle part for round, oval, and heart-shaped faces to enhance facial features and create a balanced look. Consider introducing a curtain fringe that highlights your cheekbones or eyes. Choose the feature you prefer and use your style to emphasize it.

#10: Long Straight Blonde and Thin Hairstyle

If you have thin hair, a long, straight blonde hairstyle could be your best bet. Making thin hair lighter can increase its light reflection, giving it a plumper look. On the other hand, darker shades might result in a thinner and flatter appearance. Maintaining such a look might require some extra help. Consider using a light smoothing cream. Applying it as you blow dry can keep your hair straight, shiny, and protected.

#11: Long Black Straight Hair with Straight, Blunt Bangs

If you’ve got naturally straight hair, it’s a good idea to find a style that embraces it. A long, black hairstyle with blunt bangs is a perfect way to embrace natural straightness.

#12: Gorgeous Dark Brunette Style

Consider a dark brunette style, especially if you keep your locks long. This look draws attention to the depth and richness of the hair’s color. It’s important to keep the length to achieve this look but add subtle layers for movement. This style works best for ladies with straight hair or willing to use a flat iron to get the straight hair effect. Avoid adding too much product, as it may weaken the hair and dull its shine.

#13: The Longest and Straightest Hair

Try this look to have the longest, straightest hair! Some factors to think about is if you have any wave or texture to your hair, you might want a keratin treatment. Ask about your options at your next salon visit.

#14: Long Blonde Straight Hair with Visible Layers

Long blonde straight hair with visible layers is a style that exudes beauty. The layers give the hair depth and dimensions that make it look lively and layered. The strong contrast between the blonde color and the cut layers makes the hair look striking. They add volume and texture. This style suits women that have very blonde hair, and the layers give the hair more movement and flow. If you like to maintain this look, ask your stylist for regular trims. This will keep your layers looking fresh and defined.

#15: Side-Parted Long Straight Bright Blonde Hairstyle

Long hair can be worn in so many ways. Creating long hair with extensions can give you the fullness and length that you desire. Ask for slight face-framing bangs to break up long hair and shape the face beautifully. When wearing hair long and straight, invest in products like Oway’s Color Protection Veil.

#16: Silky Smooth Long Hair

There is nothing more beautiful than silky smooth long hair. The best way to achieve healthy long hair is to trim your ends every 8 weeks. You’ll want minimal layering in the bottom and around the face to give you a smooth shape. Avoid excessive heat damage by using a heat protectant when blow drying. Also, use a very large round brush. If your hair is frizzy, an argon oil and smoothing cream will help you tame the unruly beast.

#17: Side-Parted Long Blonde Cut

One of the best styles for millennials and gen-Z alike is a side-parted long blonde cut. Gen-Z brought us back to the middle part for a while. Now we are slowly moving back to a subtle side part, hallelujah! If you want a blonder look, ask for a buttery blonde to platinum tone. Your colorist will let you know if this can be done in one session or if it will take some time. Patience is key when going light blonde!

#18: Fashionable Pale Blonde Long Hair

Fashionable pale blonde long hair is classic and stunning. Pale blonde hair is so light and ashy it’s almost grey. While having hair this light, be prepared to be at the salon more. You’ll want to get a touch-up when your new growth is no longer than half an inch long. If you wait any longer, you could get banding on your blonde or be charged more for extra product and time. Hair grows on an average of half an inch a month, so 4 to 5-week touch-ups should be perfect.

#19: Long Ash Blonde Blunt Cut

We all know that long locks will always be timeless. But if you consider this long ash blonde blunt cut, you will receive the upgrade you’ve been looking for. The right stylist for this job should be able to consult with you about the condition of your hair. And, maintain a full highlight and custom mix the perfect ash toner that suits your skin tone and style. Ask for a maintenance trim on the ends, and you’ll be set for the next 6-8 weeks. Then, you will need to see your stylist for a touch-up.

#20: Middle-Parted Long Straight Brown Hair

When you want an easy style that works with your everyday look, middle-parted long straight hair is the way to go. With my years of experience, I’ve found this classic, timeless cut never goes out of fashion. It’s great for all face shapes. It adds volume around the crown, elongating rounder faces by creating vertical movement. For extra hold and shine, finish with a lightweight hairspray. Try Aveda’s Control Force Firm Hold Hairspray.

#21: Brunette Balayage with a Deep Side Part

A brunette balayage with a deep side part is perfect for switching up your long, straight hair. A great choice for oval, square, or diamond face shapes. This classic look adds dimension without losing the natural beauty of its shape. Hair should be damp before applying heat-protecting products. Try Sebastian &ldquoShine Shaker Serum&rdquo from mid-lengths to ends. Then blow dry using a large round brush to create body in your hair.

#22: Amazing Long Brunette Hair with Side Bangs

Long brunette hair with side bangs will make you feel sassy. Pay attention to how much heat your using on your hair. This helps to make sure it keeps its shine. I suggest getting your hair trimmed every two months to ensure your hair is in good health.

#23: Waste-Length Dark Auburn Hair

Your hair is the crown you wear. The most effective way to get to it grow to waist-length is to get routine trims to cut off the split ends. A color like a dark auburn can be created with a temporary gloss to change your look per season.

#24: Ultra-Sleek Long Blonde Hair with a Center Part

You must try an ultra-sleek long blonde hairstyle. You could also try this look with a side part. But, this super smooth style looks best with center-parted balance.

#25: Dark Red

When a client comes in and wants red hair, I always ask the same question. How often are you willing to be in the salon to eliminate your color from fading? Red fades the fastest. So I highly encourage my redheads to be in the salon every month to prevent their color from fading. This will allow your color to always look bright and fresh the way it was intended.

#26: Waste-Length Middle-Parted Long Blonde Hair

The trending middle part looks great on waist-length, long blonde hair. The best way to healthily grow your hair is to get the occasional yet consistent dusting. A dusting will remove all weathered ends without taking too much length. And when done often, makes your hair grow like a weed. Spend time treating your hair right with the right after-care.

#28: Extra Long Blonde Hairstyle with Bangs

An extra long blonde hairstyle with bangs is an effortless look but takes skill and precision. This blonde can be achieved in multiple ways: foiling, global application, or if your hair is light enough high-lift color. Because long blonde hair is delicate, ensure your stylist is a blonde specialist so they really take the care needed to keep it healthy. One of the biggest advantages to a specialist is they know what they’re doing and create stunning blondes all day every day.

#29: Long Blonde Hair with Textured Ends

Blondes are beautiful and happen to be one of my favorite things to do as a hairstylist. I always forewarn my clients that blondes are not low maintenance. To get the most out of your color, you’ll need to regularly be in the salon for color appointments. Plus, you may need an occasional toner in between.

#30: Long Light Blonde Hairstyle with a Side Part

The long light blonde hairstyle with a side part is a gorgeous and classy way to wear your long hair. However, if you want to keep your bleached hair healthy and maintain its length, you must invest in the proper professional hair cosmetics.

#31: Long Choppy Cut

For long hair, try a choppy cut to maintain thickness but with a little texture to still give your hair movement. Remember that this haircut is best for women wanting to maintain length throughout their whole perimeter. Try to style your cut with some loose curls towards the ends to give even more movement to your cut. If you can, utilize a volumizing spray or mousse to really amplify the thickness of your hair.

#32: Extra Long Straight Copper Hair

To really spice up the length, try a copper hair color, which is perfect for a fair-skinned woman. Remember to wash only with sulfate-free shampoos and cooler water to maintain the brightness of your copper hue. A disadvantage to having an this cut is if you have any breakage or frizziness, it will be noticeable. A Brazilian Blowout or Keratin treatment is a perfect way to maintain your sleek look.

#33: Very Long Straight Hair with Balayage

Very long straight hair is like a blank canvas and can do so many styles. Try a blonde balayage on your very long straight hair for depth at the root and offers a low-maintenance hairdo. At-home care is critical for long hair with any blonde. Just use a hair mask such as K18 once a week to keep your locks healthy and strong.
