The pinnacle of easy hairstyles for long hair is the side-swept braid. This variation can be completed a few ways. For the easiest braid, simply part hair to the side and braid downward.

The benefit of waves is that they look natural on any person but always look elegant and polished. Plus, this look can be achieved quickly by a person with any level of experience.

Gibson Tuck - Easy and Cute Hairstyle

The Gibson Tuck is the easiest way to create the look of a chignon without all of the hassle. Long hairstyles can sometimes feel like a chore; most styles seem to take hours to complete. Create this style by putting your hair in a low, loose ponytail. Create a small space between your head and the hair tie and then pull the ponytail through. Complete the look by tucking the hair into the roll that the first steps create. No special tools and no fuss. The Gibson Tuck gives the same effect as intensive styles without the effort (or the price tag).

33. Sassy Waves for Long Hair

Long Sassy Hair

Use this technique to create volume and sassy waves in even the most stubborn of long haircuts. By putting only the front portion of your hair in a pony, you will create a cascade effect that makes your hair look fuller than ever. This also adjusts the places where you will curl and optimize the curling based on the layers already in your hair. A style like this is perfect for someone with thin hair who is looking for a romantic look that still keeps the hair out of their face. If you want to take your volume up a notch, add a second, smaller ponytail underneath the first.

34. Pinned Hair – Popular Easy Hairstyle

Pinned Hair - Popular Easy Hairstyle

Pinned hair is one of the most deceptively easy hairstyles for long hair. This style looks very complicated but really only takes a little bit of extra time to complete. Start by sectioning your hair into 6 parts. First, pull back your front two sections and cross along the back before pinning. Then work your way down. This look can be as easy or as complicated as you like — the trick is how you roll your hair once its up. For the sleekest style, be sure to straighten your hair beforehand and make sure to use pins that match your hair color. This look will impress all of your friends (and we can keep the secret just between us).

35. Messy Side Braid

Messy Side Braid long hairstyle

This tousled, romantic look works well for long hair with bangs. The soft waves in this look are actually created by braiding several sections in different styles of braid, fastening them together at the bottom, and then loosening sections. However, anyone with layered haircuts for long hair can achieve the same look by curling their hair and letting the style fall out by finger combing through the curls. If your hair is naturally curly, adding a diffuser to your blow dryer will bring more definition to your waves. Adding a statement hairpiece will make even the messiest style seem more refined.

36. Messy Volume Pony Hairstyle

Messy Volume Pony Hairstyle

Volume is the name of the game with this ponytail. Teasing and draping sections of your hair before they are added to the hair tie give additional dimension and depth to the style. This look is great for people who have their first haircuts for long hair because it’s infinitely customizable. Sections can be braided, curled, or pinned to before being caught by the hair tie. This style is perfect for long days where you won’t have time to restyle your hair. No matter how messy it gets, your ponytail will look fresh and new.
