Elegant Long Haircuts
Long hair can be styled in so many different ways. Each type of occasion warrants a different look and the same can be achieved by styling long hair in a different way. If you have elegant long hairstyles on your mind, then you need to spend some time and look at some hairstyles. Then decide which would suit your face, hair type and occasion the most.
Once you have decided on that, get the basic haircut which would help you achieve the desired style.
If you are aiming for a look where the long hair is curled into waves and flicks, then go in for a gentle layered cut. The layered ends can then be permed into gentle waves and flicked back in the directions desired with the help of a curling iron. In the picture below, the elegant hairstyle shown is achieved by giving the hair a side parting and a volumiser is applied at the roots of the hair in front to give it a blown up look in front.
There is nothing more elegant than updo hairstyles. If you have long hair, that is an option which is open to you. Curls, twists, French knot and braid are some of the hairstyles you can opt for amongst many more. Check out the updo hair style shown here. The hair is pulled back in a tight bun at the back but before doing so, the bangs have been separated out and have been side swept with the use of styling gel to make sure that no strand is out of place. This is an elegant hairstyle that is excellent for formal occasions.
You could even opt for a partial updo as shown below. Here the hair is allowed to be styled around the face and is tied back loosely into a bun or knot at the back to give a careless, sexy look to this elegant hairstyle.
Then again, there are the braids. A braid can be used as part of an elegant hairstyle where it becomes an accessory to the hair. Check out the elegant formal hairstyle as depicted below.
