Easy DIY Hairstyles Girls With Long Locks Should Wear
1. Boho Braid
Don’t feel like washing your hair today? Take advantage of your messy hair by doing the boho braid hairstyle. Don’t worry, even if you’re not good at doing braids, you can easily manage this one. You can try this hairstyle on messy straight hair, but I suggest you curl your hair a bit to give it that boho vibe.
2. Twisted Bun
Are you looking for an updo which looks elegant and sophisticated but less the hard work and effort? This twisted bun DIY hairstyle is a must-try! All you need to do is tie a knot and secure both hair sections with bobby pins.
3. Curly Updo[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BR8_BHSl5wy/ hidecaption=true width=625]
For an easy hairstyle to wear for a wedding, I prefer a curly one or an updo. Let’s put them together to create a curly updo which looks gorgeous on anyone! If it’s for your wedding, you can add some flowers like the one shown above. If you don’t like the neat look that much, you can keep the front part of your hair loosely curled. You’ll be thrilled to know this hairstyle is Beauty and the Beast Belle-inspired!
4. Tuck and Cover French Braid
Running out of time to go to a stylist? This tuck and cover French braid will make you look poised and pulled together. This hairstyle is pretty versatile, which is one of the things I love about it. I can wear it with practically anything from tee and jeans to dresses! Can’t believe how easy it is to do this too!
5. Party Perfect Ponytail
I’m a ponytail lover. And in the summer, I almost always wear my hair in a ponytail on a daily basis. It’s easy to do, it keeps my hair out of my face, and it’s very comfortable to wear. So, when I’m going to parties, I try and find a ponytail hairstyle that makes me feel good as well. I like how messy and pretty this hairstyle looks. To add some sass, I like curling my hair.
6. Messy Bun
The messy bun and ponytail are fierce competitors in my book. Both are my go-to DIY hairstyles and I really adore them. Both are very easy to do. So how do I choose? I pick the ponytail if I’m spending more time outdoors and the messy bun hairstyle when I’m indoors so the strands don’t go to my face (I hate that!).
7. Braided Rose
For women who love the half-up hairstyle, this is a good variation to try. The braided rose is simply adorable! When you walk down the street, people will think it’s done by a professional stylist, but really, it was all you, girl! It’s a perfect hairstyle for the summer and will really look great on your dainty dresses!
8. Twisted Crown Braid
So maybe you like those Dutch crown braids but find them really hard to do? I’ve got something easier for you! Why not give this twisted crown braid a go? It’s not as detailed as a Dutch braid, but it looks just as pretty on both straight or wavy hair.
9. Ribbon Half Updo
I’m bringing you back to those days where the bigger the hair, the more fabulous you are. Look at this half updo bouffant, isn’t it beautiful? To add daintiness into this look, wrap your hair around a thin ribbon. Yes, it doesn’t just look cute on kids − we can also rock this look, ladies!
10. Big Sexy Waves[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/Bghd6qJFrZ0/ hidecaption=true width=625]
And to complete the list of DIY hairstyles for long hair is everyone’s favorite − the big sexy waves hairstyle! You know what? I know a lot of women who would go to the salon to get this look. Maybe they can’t be bothered with doing it at home or can’t find the right technique to do so. But hey, why spend money to pay someone else to do it when you can easily DIY, right? And trust me, ladies, after some practice, you can make big sexy wavy hair even with your eyes closed!
