If you are looking for hairdos with a completely different look than all others, consider this pink highlight number by Avril Lavigne. The hair in the crown area has been lifted higher and the hair is pulled loosely back into a partial updo hairstyle.
Partial updos are a great option for long hair. The hair still has the appearance of long hair, yet it looks dressed up with a portion of the hair pulled back. If you aren't a fan of pink, you can go with different colored highilights, such as the typical blonde or brunette colored highlights.
Angelina is wearing a similar style, but with more height in the crown area. Gentle back combing or a hair form can be used to create this height. The ends of her hair are left loose and slightly wavy for a very soft look.
Long side swept bangs are always a great touch to the long hairdo partial updo look.
This is a casual "flicked at the sides" look that still works for formal events. Soft layers have been cut in the sides to fall above the shoulders, and these layers, together with the side part, make this hairstyle frame rounder face shapes really well
