    Get Creative with Your Long Hair–Try These Fun Styles!

    I have long hair, which I like, but it seems like so much work and I’m always running out of ideas for fixing it. The end result is usually me pulling it away from my face and into a twisted lump at the top of my head, secured with a pencil! Very stylish–not!

    But the truth is, I’m wasting ample opportunity. Long hair has tons of styling potential! So I recently looked up some of my favorite celebrities who’ve done great things to snaz up their long locks. Take a look at my selections below, featuring AnnaSophia Robb, Carrie Underwood, Emma Watson, Mandy Moore and Katie Holmes.

    Following are some fun ways to wear your hair down.

    In the first image, Robb’s hair is casually down, except for a small portion pinned back. Underwood sports a similar look, but with more hair at the top pulled back. She left some hair loose at the sides to blend with the rest of her loose locks. Watson demonstrates how to highlight your hair with a ribbon tied over the head–if you love wearing your hair down but want a change, try adding a ribbon or scarf! These are such fun ways to enjoy your long hair without it getting in the way.

    Up-dos are great for all occasions. Check out the following looks.

    These are more casual up-dos that can be worn every day, as well as for special occasions. Robb has her hair casually pulled back with her bangs left hanging naturally. She finished her look with a fun bow at the back. Moore has a messy bun sitting on the top of her head. I love how it looks natural, as if she just scraped it up then and there, but it still looks so stylish. Holmes’ look is another great style that’s not too dressy for everyday or too casual for a more formal event. These sure beat my signature pencil-secured bun!

    If you’re looking for something more formal, how about the following two examples.

    I love, love, love Watson’s look here. It’s so cute. She has a more formal style with the front brushed neatly to the side. It’s pulled back with some height at the crown and pinned up. But the elegant look is dressed with some fun curls and an adorable flower. Underwood has a similar but maturer look. Most of her hair is pulled neatly back, with a slight beehive affect. She brushed the front neatly across the forehead like Watson, and left a few swifts of hair loose in front of the ears.

    If you’re looking for an even more formal look? Check out Holmes and Moore below.

    These looks are very formal and stunning. Consider them for proms, weddings and other formal occasions. These two looks are both brushed-back styles, void of any loose strands. Holmes has side part, a high twist at the back and some elegant flowers finishing it. Moore’s look features a middle part with a plaited bun at the back.

    Note too that you can always jazz up most styles by throwing in some loose curls and adding fun flowers, headbands, ribbons and sparkly clips.

    Ladies, do you love having long hair but find you’re running out of creative ideas for styling it? Or do you rock a shorter haircut?
