Rapunzel Who?: 6 Stylish Ideas For Long Hair
Long-haired gals have a lot of length to work with, and with so much room for creativity, it's impossible to cover the myriad of looks that are achievable. But we've broken it down to six styles that can serve as launching points for your locks—ideas you can build around or on or leave as is. Either way, you're guaranteed to show off your better-than-Rapunzel style in all its glory.
Curls are a girl's best friend, and there are so many sweet styles to play with—from ringlets to soft swirls to bigger, fuller looks. Long-haired ladies have the room to take advantage of all these gorgeous 'dos, plus more. And the best way to ensure you can change up your hairstyle anytime you want is with the NuMe Octowand. The 8-in-1 interchangeable wand includes barrel attachments of different sizes and shapes that can take you from Shirley Temple cuteness to Farrah Fawcett fabulousness in no time.
Maybe something loose and carefree is more up your alley. Sometimes all you need is a great round brush (try the NuMe Ionic Round Brush) and a blow dryer—like our Signature Dryer model—to get bouncy, voluminous hair that's perfect for daytime fun or nighttime glam. And with its far infrared heat, three temperature settings, and cool shot button, the Signature Hair Dryer will be gentle on your hair on the path to looking fab.
A side-swept ponytail is ideal anytime you want to glam things up without having to put in too much work (while looking like you put in tons of work). Pull hair back and secure with a ponytail holder; don't worry about it looking neat—the less perfect, the better. Pull out a couple of face-framing pieces and give them a soft curl using the Classic Curling Wand. Then split your ponytail into two to three parts and curl away. Available in 19mm, 25mm, and 32mm barrels, the Classic Curling Wand will allow you to achieve any size curl your heart (or strands) desires.
Waves reminiscent of crimped styles from back in the day are an out-of-the-box way to give hair a little bit more volume and texture. And with long hair, those endless waves are the perfect accessory for a night out on the town or anytime you require a statement-making style. The NuMe Pentacle 2-in-1 Curling Wand and Deep Waver is all you need to achieve this gorgeous look. Just unlock the tourmaline barrel to expose the V-shaped plates, take a section of hair and clamp! It's that simple. Move down the hair, clamping at regular intervals. You'll have a bangin' set of waves in far less time than it takes with a regular flat iron. The best part about the 2-in-1 is that it gives you the ability to switch back to a traditional curling iron if you want to change things up.
Sleek High Ponytail
A sophisticated ponytail is another style that long-haired beauties can have fun with. It highlights the facial features while giving those sweet locks their own airtime. The most important factor is ensuring the hair is as straight as possible. One of the greatest tools for this is our Megastar, equipped with ceramic floating plates and a far infrared heat strip. The NuMe Styling Comb—the Megastar's BFF—is another can't-live-without tool when it comes to bone-straight tresses. It keeps hair taut and tangle-free, allowing for a smooth finish when the Megastar glides over. Once you've gotten everything all straightened out, just pull your hair up and secure. Wrap a piece of hair around the rubber band for an even more polished look.
Long hair is a great canvas to create buns as well. The length opens up endless options in terms of styling: multilayered, messy, curly, ballerina, braided—the possibilities are numerous. For a smoother bun style such as this one, a key ingredient is Sleeky In A Bottle Serum. This blend of oils is designed to tame frizz and nourish strands while adding shine. It's the perfect finishing touch for a bun that's high on glam.
