More Long Hair Style Options
Another great option for long hair is to add some sort of bangs to it.
Mischa Barton has added some long side-swept bangs to her long wavy hair style.
This is not a full bang, but it is a little more than the wispy bangs. The bangs are cut very long, probably past the eye level, so that they can be side swept easily.
You may need some styling cream and hair spray to keep the bangs in place. Nothing could be more annoying than having your bangs fly into your eyes, blocking your vision.
Mischa also has added long layering throughout her hair style. Long layers will help the hair to lay smooth, especially if it is very thick or dense.

This long hairstyle is the perfect look for framing the face. Layers are tapered down from chin-length and face framing bangs are swept off to the side, slightly brushing the eyebrows.
Create this tailored look by getting a layered haircut with face framing layers. Create all over shine by blow drying the hair and then flat-ironing from the roots to the ends. Finish off the style by adding a shine serum or finishing product that contains silicone.
Silicone helps to seal the cuticle and bring out the shine. Be careful that you don't use too much of this product because it will make your hair look too greasy.
This long, wavy hairstyle, see photo right, is a great style for any occasion. Wear your hair loose and down or up and curly--there are so many options.
If you don't have naturally curly hair, the curly version will take you quite a bit of time, especially if you have extra thick hair. Just be sure to let the hair cool completely before positioning the curls.
Hilary Swank is wearing an excellent example of a flattering long hairstyle. Her hair is styled in loose, bouncy waves all over with the addition of a full bang. The style goes great with her face shape and hair type.
America Ferrari is wearing a smooth looking long layered version of the bob hairstyle. Her hair is parted deep on one side and swept across the forehead to the other side. There are many long layers added throughout the style to create extra height and volume.
Add height in the crown area by gently back-combing small sections of hair gently with a comb. Smooth over the top of the hair with your fingers and use a finishing spray to keep the hair in place.
