Best Long Hairstyles With Hair Extensions

Now that you have enough hair length and volume to make your hairdo fuller and livelier, here are some hairstyles you can get inspiration from when deciding how to wear your beloved strands.

1. Ponytail Waves

If you’d like to keep your strands neat and tidy throughout the day while still showcasing your long hair, you should check out ponytail waves. It’s suitable for school, work, or even for just hanging out with friends. There’s no need to style your hair elaborately too since you might just find it difficult to maintain as you go about your day.

Just tie your hair in one high ponytail, clip ponytail hair extensions on to make it look thicker, and then style your hair in waves.

2. Ribbon Half Pony

Half ponytails are perfect for casual dates, like a lovely day out with friends while having a picnic at a nature park.

A half-pony tied with a charming big ribbon or an eye-catching big clip can not only keep your hair neatly behind your ears so that you can spend your entire time enjoying your time with people closest to you, but it also allows you to show off your long, flowing locks with aplomb.

3. Decorated Crown Braid

Crown braids look very pretty with long hair, especially voluminous ones. Dutch braids in particular look thicker and fuller the more volume your hair has. You can wear this look to formal events like weddings and parties and even add on accessories that match the theme, such as pearl ornaments or floral bands.

4. Bridal Waves

Although this hairstyle was popularized as a typical wedding hairdo, bridal waves can also be worn for ballgown events like a charity gala or a debutante ball because they flow down so elegantly. They look even more stunning on long hair since so much emphasis will be put on the waves themselves. 

To add glam to this hairstyle without being too overpowering, you can wear jeweled clips, flowered barrettes, or a wire headband.

5. Side Braid

If all you want to do is to spend the day lounging on the couch, strolling the streets of downtown, or walking lazily by the beach, then side braids are the perfect hairstyle for your long locks. This effortless and chill hairstyle may seem too simple or even casual for some, but it’s made alive by the length and volume of your hair.

Need a little more oomph in your hairdo? Try adding accessories like a stylish hat or flowers. Regardless of what kind of braid you wear, be it the regular three-strand, fishtail braids, or something else, you can also pull on the braids a little bit to give your braids a messy texture and a little more volume.

Using Hair Extensions For Long Hair

Before picking out which hairstyle you want, make sure that both your hair and your hair extensions are shiny and smooth with the Zalaplex Hair Extension Hydrating Mask. After all, frizzy hair is harder to style and manage.

The next step is knowing what type of hair extension to use. There are many varieties to choose from, depending on your preferences as well as how long you’re planning to keep your hair long. If you’re planning to keep it that way for a few weeks or so, you can wear tape-in hair extensions or weave-in hair extensions. If it’s only for a few hours to a day at most though, then halo hair extensions or clip-in hair extensions are the easiest to wear and remove.

After putting on your chosen extensions, apply the Mad Matter Volumizing Powder to help hold your hair in place at all times and improve its volume.

With your longer, more voluminous hair, you have an endless list of hairstyle options. Buns, ponytails, and braids are the most basic of them. If you mix any two or more kinds of these, you can even wear a different hairstyle every day and for every occasion.
