FAQ: Long Hair

Is long hair trending this year?

Long hairstyles are always fashionable, provided that you’ve got the proper cut and color.
If you have long hair or are thinking about growing it out, you should know that layers, shags, and texture are all the rage this year. If you want some summery vibe, just embrace your long locks by adding beachy waves.

Does long hair make you look younger or older?

Some people connect long hair with youth. However, wearing it long and straight can make you appear older than you are. Straight hair often seems less voluminous than hair with some body, simulating the natural loss of volume that occurs as people age.
