Half Up Do
One of the great go-to hairstyles for long hair and side bang ladies is the half up hairstyle. Now if you’re already working the half up hairstyle, one way to switch things up a bit is to change the part between a deep side part or a strong middle part the shift can make it feel like a completely different hairstyle. In addition, change up the placement of where you pin the hair back. A great relaxed look is pinning the hair back to the middle of your head. In turn, if you want something a little different bring the pinning up a bit higher on the head.
The great thing about side bangs is that they’re long enough to pull back on the days you just feel like them being out of your face. One great, easy hairstyle to get your bangs off your face for the day is pulling them back into a braid. It’s chic and a fun way to incorporate something different into your usual hair rotation.
Mix Up the Part and Texture
The great thing about this haircut style is the versatility, even making simple switches like changing your part from the side to the middle is an easy way to change your hair. Additionally, it’s likely you have layers which are great for creating the appearance of texture in your hair. Spritz your hair with some texturizing product to create great texture in your hair. While you’re in the mindset of switching things up – try different style/ sized curls. This hairstyle is great for all different curl types, everything from loose beachy waves to tighter ringlet curls are gorgeous on long hair.
As with any hairstyle, just experiment! The great thing about playing around with different hairstyles is it isn’t permanent. So just try pinning your hair back in different ways, or adding little braids strategically throughout your hair. You may just find a new hairstyle you love!
