Having a long hairstyle will require extra time for styling every day. This is something that you should really keep in mind when you are looking for the right hairstyle.
Many women decide they want long hairstyles, get hair extensions and then discover that they don't have the desire or the time to style their hair every day. Our guest author below discusses the different types of styles you can create with long hair, along with the work needed to keep these styles.
Long hair styles can work wiith any hair type, be it straight, curly or wavy. Depending on your hair type, you may want to get a specially taylored hairstyle. There are hair stylists that specialize in hair type haircuts. For example if you have thin or thinning hair, you will need a haircut that doesn't emphasize the thinning.
Likewise if you have very curly hair, your haircut will need to use the curls in the proper way to get the right look. There are generalizations for getting a long hairstyle. The basics are if your are very short or have a very long face, then a straight long hairstyle would not be your best choice.
It is always best to consult with a hair stylist to determine exactly what type of style would work best for you.

Check out these styles, left and right, for some great examples of layers. Add some long chunky side bangs like Cindy Crawford for a great sexy look.

Kate Beckinsale also has a great wavy hairstyle that features an off-center part and loose waves. Create this style on your own by adding a curl-enhancing cream or gel to damp hair and gently blow dry the hair using a diffuser attachment.
