A lot of female celebrities hairstyles for long hair are not as hard to achieve as you might think. Longer hair allows for a lot of options because you can go from updo to half up half down and unlimited combinations of braids and other hot styles. Here are a few of the classic celebrity hairstyles that you will want to be sure to check out for your next visit to the salon.

Up & Down



This style is super easy, but it accomplishes a lot. For example, you could wear this like Ariana Grande to watch a game played by your favorite team. This half up and down style requires little more than a hair tie to achieve. The thicker and longer your hair is the heavier duty the tie you will want. You can get hair elastics that are extra long and won't snag hair.

Ombre Color

When you go ombre you don't have to pick between light and dark; rather you can have it all! Ombre colors are as varied as your imagination which means if you want to go with a far out there color like blue or fire engine red then there is nothing to stop you. Hair extensions can also be used to achieve an ombre style color without committing to a major dye job.

If you are tempted to try this color at home, be warned, a good ombre look should flow into the other color smoothly. If you don't have the experience required for this type of color, then do yourself a favor and go to a pro to avoid a hair disaster.

Long Layers & Highlights



This is a look that has been popular with the stars for a very long time. Layers open up the face, and they frame it in a flattering way. How you part your hair is important to this look, and a stylist will ask you how you prefer to part your hair. If you are unsure of what will look best, then you should ask them their pro opinion.

Highlights and lowlights can be subtle or dramatic. Ten foils placed strategically when you get your cut can go a long way. More dramatic effects are of course possible with more foils. For ultimate style, you could go with low lights in caramel and rich chocolate tones or platinum or honey blonde highlights. What works best for you can be determined by your stylist that can take a look at your natural skin tone and make recommendations.

Going Long

If you want the looks above but are lacking some of the lengths then lucky for you, there are a lot of hair extension choices or wigs out there. Real human hair extensions and wigs are going to be more expensive than their synthetic counterparts but can be styled more like human hair, so if you are into heat styling, then it might be worth it to go with real human hair extensions. Clip in extensions are often cheapest and don't require a pro to install.
