Hair Hacks for Easy Hairstyles for Long Hair Every Girl Needs to Know

If you’ve had too many bad hair days and you’ve got tired trying out simple and easy hairstyles for long hair which does not end up the way you want it to look, then you should go through our list of hair hacks to find some help. 

1. Use Foil to Make Your Curls Last Longer

Prom hairstyles for long hair often involve curls. If you have straight hair and you are planning to sport some curls that can last for the day, then use the foil method. Simply roll your hair into a coil. Now wrap your coil of hair in a foil and press it with a flat iron. The foil acts as a heat conductor keeping the hair coiled as it cools. The result is curls that look natural and last longer. 

2. You’ve Been Using Your Bobby Pins the Wrong Way

Flip your bobby pin so that the wavy side is against the head. This will help you secure your hair more tightly. The straight side of the bobby pins can easily give away and your hair will hang loose after some time. Try the opposite side and you will be able to keep your hair in place for a longer time.

3. Create an Up Do in Second Using Bobby Pins Only

Use a teasing comb to tease the crown of your head. Now take a section of hair between your hairline and the crown of your head. Use bobby pins to secure it. Now take a small section of hair from the right side and wrap it behind your head securing it with bobby pins. Do the same thing with the left side of your head. Now continue the process till you gather three to four sections of hair from each side.

4. Make Your Braid Look Fuller

If you are fond of hair braids, then this tip is for you. Simply pull your braid apart after you’ve secured it. Your hair will look thicker and your braid will get some volume. Just make sure that you don’t pull it so much that it comes apart completely. 

5. Use Your Headband for a New Hairstyle

Use an elastic headband and roll your hair over the elastic before you secure the headband to your head. The result will be a rolled tunnel bun. If you are looking for some easy hairstyles for long hair, then try this fun hairdo.
