Long hair is a curse and a blessing at the same time: You let it grow for years, care for it with products that are as expensive as eating for a whole week, and treat it meticulously and sensitively like a baby. In the best case, your hair will appreciate that and grow the way you would like it to. And when you have that long mane, you usually let it hang down, wear it open. The premise "with long hair you can do much better hairstyles than with short hair" is quickly forgotten. Mostly because of time constraints. In the following, we show that a hairstyle with a wow factor also works in less than ten minutes with ten simple ideas.
For the braided bun, braid the hair in two braids and wrap them around the neck. Fix with bobby pins. Goes fast and looks elegant without being stuffy.
No silk scarf at hand? No problem! For this look, simply part two strands of hair at the nape of the neck and place them over the forehead like a scarf, twisting them together once. Then pin it on the sides with bobby pins. The turban made of hair gives the face a flattering frame and looks much heavier than it is to imitate.
At Lanvin, the silk scarf has moved from the handbag handle into the hair and embellishes a simple, low-set ponytail there. To do this, make a classic ponytail and wrap the scarf around your hair. The cloth is attached with two bobby pins.
Tip: Match the silk print to the top.
Preparation is everything with the high-lying bun on the side. To do this, comb the hair tightly to the head with a shiny pomade, put a small bun cushion in the position, and wrap the hair around it. Secure with bobby pins and fix with plenty of hairsprays, this ensures the shiny, glossy look.
Orderly chaos is the motto at Marc Valvo. To recreate the hairstyle, gently curl the hair with a curling iron and braid several small braids around the head. Then loosen these with your fingers to create a romantic, feminine look. Summarize in a few places with gold hair clips.
Hairbands are one of the most important trend hairstyles in 2021. If you can still find your old hairband from the drugstore in the bathroom, you can combine it with a bun or ponytail. For more contrast to the hair color, combine a light band with dark hair and a dark band with blonde hair colors.
The French braid is arguably the most widely worn hairstyle during childhood ballet lessons. But there is also an adult version of it: the herringbone braid. For an even more elegant variant, fold down the end of the braid and pin it invisibly to the back of the braid with hairpins. Looks sophisticated and exciting.
If you think of Lady Gaga first when you see a hair bow, you've made a mistake in the decade. Instead, the 1960s hairstyle is celebrating a revival with the look of Ryan Lo. Divide a section at the base, tease it strongly with a hairpin comb, and then tie it at the back of the head with a silk bow. Blow-dry the remaining hair with a round brush and fix the result with a lot of hairsprays. The classic ponytail also looks all the more special with a hair bow.
If you don't want to do without flower power in winter, let a few flowers flourish on your head - or use silk flowers. Simply work them into the braided hairstyle or stick them into the hair tie.
This season, Rochas offers the best alternative to the thin hair tie. Simple braids and ponytails were embellished with colorful textile ribbons with gold threads. If you like it a little more playful, you can divide your ponytail several times with small transparent elastic bands. This provides more volume and a soft look, the last part is then tied together with the fabric ribbon.
