Stylish ways to rock your long hair
Do you have long hair? Your hair length is one of the most versatile out there. Here are some tips to get you started. Updos typically work best with hair that’s dirty. Don’t wash your hair for about two days before attempting any of these styles. These styles also require extra tools/accessories. You will need hair ties (to help section off hair to style), bobby pins of all sizes (to secure an updo), a rat-tail comb and bristled brush.
Here are 5 options on how to rock different styles to showcase your amazing locks.
