Full Answer

Waves, curls and straight hair are casual, simple hairstyles for long hair. Choosing side or middle parts can create different looks. These styles can be clean and crisp or undone and messy to suit the wearer's personality and style. Bangs are easy to add to any of these simple options to create a variant on the look.

Ponytails are simple and classic, and they can be worn high or low for different occasions. Messy buns are made similarly to ponytails. With both styles the hair is pulled through a hair tie until tight enough to hold. However, when making a bun, the hair is not pulled all the way through on the final twist of the hair tie, creating a messy loop of hair.

Braids are another versatile choice. Messy side braids go well with long hair, but smaller braids can be used in partial updos. An alternative to a traditional braid is a twist, which is easier to style than a braid.
