With these tips, you can cheat yourself into a long and magnificent mane!
Although the short hairstyles for 2022 are incredibly chic and versatile, many women dream of a long and magnificent head of hair. Because let's be honest - especially when our long hair is well cared for, it not only looks stunning but also gives us an incredible number of styling options. But while we can give ourselves a cool bob in under 10 minutes, the reverse process isn't that easy and most of us don't want to wait that long for our locks to grow enough. If you also want longer highlights, then you've come to the right place! So that nothing stands in the way of your dream hairstyle, we will tell you below how you can use simple tricks to make your hair look longer!
How can I make my hair look longer? This question has probably occupied all of us at least once. The answer to that is pretty simple – with hair extensions, of course! In particular, using tape extensions is a relatively cheap, safe, and easy way to cheat ourselves into a long mane. The method is also known under the term "adhesive extensions" and adhesive strips covered with hair are attached directly to the roots of your own hair. And the best thing? The selection on the market is now so large that you can choose from several colors and lengths. But in order to achieve the most natural result possible, you should definitely invest in high-quality human hair tape extensions.
You're probably thinking, "Isn't that the complete opposite of what I want to achieve?". Not necessarily. The right haircut can actually make our hair look longer and the layered cut is perfect for that! The fine layers immediately provide more volume and fullness and this, in turn, creates the illusion of a longer head of hair. However, you should stay away from a blunt cut, as this also emphasizes the actual length of your hair. The parting can also decide on the optical effect of the hair length. The middle parting is undoubtedly the method of choice for us when it comes to making our hair look longer. And as a plus point, the trend hairstyle makes the face appear narrower - a real all-rounder!
Perfectly straight hair is simply timeless and always looks stunning. Smoothing also ensures a longer and more magnificent mane. So if you want to make your hair look longer, then your favorite flat iron is probably all you need! However, the hairstyle often looks flat, and to avoid this we recommend blow-drying the hair with a hairdryer and a round brush. To avoid split ends and hair breakage, don't forget the heat protection!
We are fans of simple tips and tricks that are time-saving and still super effective. Updos are trending and a pretty easy way to make our hair look longer. For example, how about a beautiful and elegant ponytail in a double braid looks? Section off half of your hair and tie it in a ponytail at the top of your head. At a distance of a few centimeters immediately below, tie the remaining hair together and voilà - you've cheated yourself a long mane! The lower the ponytail sits at the back of the head, the longer the hair appears. Half-up hairstyles also provide more fullness and volume and also allow us numerous styling options.
The ombre look continues to be trending this year and is the perfect choice for anyone wanting longer hair. The transition between the colors creates the optical illusion of a super long and magnificent mane. It would be best if you put the darker nuance in the upper part and color the tips in a lighter tone. And here's a little tip from us - in contrast to the sharp contrasts of darker shades, lighter colors make the hair appear much longer. So if you've always wanted to be a blonde, now is the time to make a change!
