31 Long Wavy Hairstyles
Sometimes I feel like my long brown hair can be so flat and boring, but then I’m grateful for Pinterest, Youtube, and now quick tutorials on Instagram for showing me simple long wavy hairstyles to liven up my hair cut. I am always in need of volume and some sort of waves so my hair doesn’t accent my round face. All the great ideas out there make me feel confident that I’ll have a hair style to every event from natural everyday to a formal wedding. I usually prefer my hair to be down in most cases in public but I don’t mind trying an easy half up when trying to be elegant.
I made this list to gather all the looks I want to try for the rest of 2017 and if you have long hair, no matter the type: frizzy hair, with bangs, thick, anything, even weave for my African American and black friends, look at some hairstyles here to see if there’s any you like to test it out! I really tried to be inclusive with the types of looks since we can’t wear the same updos to every event or then hair can become boring again. I found some cute, messy looks for thin hair and school, some with braid in a boho style you can do with layers, and even some formal and elegant curly half up you can wear anytime you wanted. There’s a good medium for something you would like, I’m sure.
