Some recent popular haircuts for long hair are seen below:
The loose, large curls or waves towards the ends of long hair is making a comeback these dasy. As can be seen below, Megan Fox of Transformers movie fame, is seen flaunting her long, black hair in gentle waves in 2010. This type of perm requires gentle use of curling iron on damp hair and then the waves need to be brushed with the fingers. Avoid using brush or comb on curly hair.
Long, layered cuts are the popular trend which has gained prominence due to the versatility of this cut. From gentle layers at the sides and back to greatly layered look where the hair is sleeked or straightened to enhance th layered effect. The layers can also start from the top, in the form of uneven bangs and come all the way down. Such hairstyles are further accentuated by highlighting, either the bangs or the long strands, alternating with different hues to provide a great effect.
Edgy, shaggy hairstyles are again a variety of the layered look. The edges are more uneven, could be tapered using the razor cut. Edgy hairstyles consist of sharply defined bangs, asymmetric cuts and use of highlighting.
The use of bangs in all sorts of hairstyles, especially with long hair, is another popular cut. The bangs maybe edgy or classic in the form of soft, side swept bangs; the fringe in front can be a blunt cut which is paired with a long bob hairstyle or could be part of a layered, wavy long hairstyle.
