What’s your best advice?

This long hairstyle for straight hair can be worn by any woman with any face shape. A quick blast dry with a paddle brush is all you need to style your hair straight. Tame frizz with emulsion/lotion on damp hair and few drops of shine serum to finish.

How would you describe this?

There’s sleekness, healthiness, and shine in this straight haircut for long hair.

What’s your best advice?

Lightly style the hair off the neck and back to prevent the natural hair from reverting, meaning curling up in its natural state. Also, comb and wrap the hair in a beehive at night to preserve the straight style until shampooing.

Cute Angled Cut with Long Side Bangs for Straight Hair

Q&A with style creator, Katie Bunnell
Professional Stylist @ Hair Body & Sol in Carlsbad, CA


How would you describe this?

This is a cute angled cut with long side bangs for straight hair. The long straight hair style is smooth and polished with a soft braid to show off the dimension.

The cut is a round shape with long layers (and a bit of texturizing) which is a conservative option if your natural texture is actually quite wavy and extremely thick.

What’s your best advice?

For face shape, the only face shape that would not benefit from this cut is an extremely elongated one since the long length would only amplify that. A long haircut with bangs for straight hair is a low maintenance cut.

Q&A with style creator, Gina Rizzo
Stylist @ House of DeCicco Salon in Ridgewood, NJ


How would you describe this?

This is a long layered haircut with balayage. The sides are layered and the back of the hair was cut in vertical sections. Doing so elevated the hair to a 45-degree angle. Then, using the shortest layer as a guide, the top was cut at a 90-degree angle. The square layers on top give the hair beautiful movement.

This cut on long and straight hair is versatile and low maintenance. It looks beautiful straight, blown out with body, or curled.

What’s your best advice?

This cut is great for women with long hair of any texture. It’s low maintenance, yet gives the hair a great style.

Blow dry hair in sections with a large round brush using a smoothing blow dry cream or volumizing mousse. Exact product use will vary depending on the hair type and desired outcome.

Sleek Long Layers with Dark Brunette Roots

Q&A with style creator, Will Burkowske
Cosmetologist @ Salon Drew in Los Alamitos, CA


How would you describe this?

The goal of this cut was round layers. This long haircut is fun because there are several round shapes coming together to create the overall style.

Place a rounded perimeter to begin the cut. Then add the round layers. Finally, the face-framing layers were added and styled round, giving the overall cut another stylish element. This cut works best on women with straight, medium texture hair.

What’s your best advice?

This haircut, in particular, is a great cut for long, straight tresses. The rounded elements accentuate the hair type. If you have an oval face shape, it compliments the cut.

This is a great cut for a woman who doesn’t mind a little styling by creating some bend on the ends and some swooping movement back for the face framing. High Dive by R+Co is a great moisture and shine cream that gives this style a sleek finish.

How would you describe this?

This straight layered haircut for long hair allows you to maintain a long length at the perimeter, but still create movement with longer layers throughout the interior of the haircut.

What’s your best advice?

This haircut on long, straight hair would work well for women with a versatile lifestyle. You can wear this hair up, blow it out, or let it air dry. There are many options!

For this particular style, use Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep and Aveda Confixor Liquid Gel to maintain a frizz-free hold. Then use boar bristle round brushes for a round brush hard set. Once the curls cool, remove the brushes and twist out the hair to form the bouncy movement shown in the photo. Finish it off with some Air hairspray for a soft hold throughout and to control any flyaways.
