Cute, Simple Hairstyle Tutorial – With Bangs
Cute, Simple Hairstyle Tutorial – With Bangs, There are tons of ways you can style your hair when it’s long; the braid and updo options are endless. I have long hair, and even after recently cutting off 5 inches it’s still pretty long. I tend to get caught up in a routine of just putting my hair up in a ponytail or wearing it wavy and loose, but in an effort to try and style my hair in different ways—braided hairstyles in particular—I wanted to share 21 braids for long hair that I think you’ll love!
These braids range from easy to difficult and some may even necessitate having help from someone to start or complete a braid style (but it is oh-so-worth it). I’m lucky enough to have several hair stylists in my family, so I get to share with you all of the long hair braids they do for me.
I find it best when doing most braids for long hair to start with clean and dry hair. Then, depending on the braid hairstyle you choose, you may need some product. For example, in the loop braid you’ll see below, my hair had to be slightly damp and I also used mousse to help keep it smooth. Some braids will call for hairspray while some just a spray shine, but often the products depend on your type of hair. If your hair is very soft and sleek you might have to use hairspray to keep it in place.

If this is something new for you then start by trying it out during the weekend when you have slightly more time to get ready.
