In fact, boredom is the number one reason why women get tired

The truth is, though, that there are never-ending options
when it comes to styling lengthy tresses. You just have to
know when and how to change it up a bit to keep your long
hair style looking fresh, stylish and up-to-date. Yes, it
may take a little practice in the beginning, but in no time
you will be able to quickly turn out exciting new looks with
a few simple tricks.
Straight and sleek long hair style
A good ceramic straightening iron such as the Sedu flat iron
can help you achieve sleek, silky and shiny tresses in just
a few minutes. No matter what texture of long hair you have,
even if it is naturally curl and fuzzy, you can change your
long hair style in a flash with a flat iron. Imagine being
able to straighten your hair in less than 10 minutes.
The trick to achieving sleek long hair is in the tools and
products that you use. What you need is a high-quality ceramic
iron, a shine product and finishing spray. Simply apply the
shine product to your dry long hair and smoothly run the flat
iron through your hair from the roots to the tips using about
½" sections. The ceramic iron will infuse moisture
and shine into your long hair style leaving you with healthy,
shiny locks that will be the envy of everyone you meet. Finish
off your long hair style with a little bit of finishing spray,
and you're beautifully prepared to face your day.
Textured and curly long hair style
If your long hair already has some curl or wave, you can
accomplish this style with very little effort. All you need
to do is use a little gel and scrunch your curl into place
with a diffused blow dryer. Once you do that, simply spritz
your long hair style with an extra hold styling spritz.
If you have been blessed with poker straight tresses, you
can achieve the same look with hot rollers or tube rollers.
The trick to making this long hair style look natural is in
the products that you use and how you use them. Be sure to
use a good quality spritz and finishing spray. Use the finishing
spray to spray your long hair before and after you roll it,
and use the spritz to add shine and finish your style. By
applying spritz to your long hair style and gently running
your fingers through the curled locks, you can achieve a natural
look with a lot of shine.
Updos and long hair style
An easy way to change your long hair style is to wear it
up. No, I'm not talking a pony tail here girls. This may take
a little creativity, but with a little practice you can have
your long hair style swept up into an exotic style that only
takes a few seconds to achieve. French twists are always a
classic as are bun variations and pulled-through pony tails.
Now that you have a few different ideas on how to change
your long hair style, it's time for you to practice. Good
luck. And remember that the long hair style never needs to
be boring or predictable when you have all of these options.
