Long hair can be beautiful when it is down and flowing, but so inconvenient when you are just trying to go about your day-to-day life.  Here are some styles and tips to help keep your long hair tamed and out of the way so that you don't have to do anything drastic such as cutting it.

1. The simplest solution is to put your hair in a pony tail.  One of the nicest ways to do this is:


  • At the nape of your neck, secure your hair with a hair bobble.
  • Then takepart of the pony tail, and wrap around your elastic band and secure with a hair grip
  • Spray a little bit of hair spray to keep the hair hiding your bobble in place


2. Put your Hair into a messy top bun for relaxed ballerina chic.
I have tried this style several times.  The first time is generally pretty disastrous, but keep trying!

Once you have mastered doing this style, it can be a great way to shove your hair up out of the way and look like you have spent a long time on it! Also, this is great for the days you don't want to wash your hair.  Spray with some dry shampoo and put it up till the end of the day.

The only downside to this is if your hair is very thick and heavy, you might find that it gives you a bit of a headache by the end of the day!

3. Braiding your hair is probably the best way to ensure that it is kept out of your face and doesn't feel too heavy.  Again, plaiting can take some time to perfect, but it is worth spending time on as it looks so pretty and is really versatile. 

Start off learning to do a simple braid, and then experiment with just braiding your fringe out of the way, or have several in your hair.  People always compliment my plaits as people think they are hard to do, but they're not when you have learnt the basics.

  • Take just 3 bits of hair at the top of your head
  • Do one set of plaiting, so left over centre, then right over centre..and left over center again
  • This next time you're going to put right over centre; pick up an additional piece of hair from the hair not yet in the plait
  • Repeat this every time you put another left or right piece over the centre and - Voila! You're braiding!

Wear it as a side ponytail or tie it up in a loose bouffant like Alexa Chung does sometimes.

Braid it back.

A ponytail, braids, a bun, pin the front of your hair back somehow, or, when you put your hair in a ponytail, take the top of it and use a bump it or something and then you'll have a little poof too (:

Hmmm...So if you can't cut your hair, maybe try to put it in a messy ponytail and see if that is cute. Or you can braid two braids and have pigtails. It all depends on how long your hair is.

Just a simple ponytail does the trick :) I have waistlength straight hair and that's what I do as long as I'm not in school. I hate it when it gets in my way.
