Rapunzel… Rapunzel… where do you get your hair done?
Long hairstyles are classic and Chic. Long hair can be incredibly versatile, you can wear it loose, in a plait, with braids; you can wear it up or with accessories, and you can try out many different colours and styles. Some of our celebrity inspirations include Kim Kardashian with her poker-straight locks, Lea Michele with her curly ombre ‘do, Blake Lively and her gorgeous blonde mane, and Rihanna with her ever-changing long hairstyles. If you don’t want to wait for your locks to get long then there is always Showpony Hair Extensions! Used for the Melbourne fashion festival and by many celebrities Australia wide, Showpony Hair Extensions are perfect to add length, volume and body to your hair.
How to Wear Your Long Hair
Straight or Curly
Both looks are achieved with blow dry and hot iron styling which may seem intimidating but oh so easy to acheive at home. Have you Epic stylist show you a few tips and tricks throughout your appointment and you will be a pro in no time! Keep straight hair polished and frizz free using a anti-humidity spray and keep bouncy curls in tact with a good quality sea spray or hair spray all available for any one of our 12 Brisbane salons.
You can make an immediate Epic change simply by having a fringe, also called a bang! To start off you can try a side fringe, it’s not a huge commitment but still a nice change. Your bangs are basically cut to be swept to the side. You can try a wispy fringe or something heavier, depending on your face shape and features. Your Epic stylists can help you make a wise decision. For those that like to surprise their friends with some real wow factor, have a “full fringe” cut in to add a real statement piece.
Facial Framing and Layering
This means a slight layering of only the hair that falls directly around your face. It can be cut in soft and subtle, or choppy and textured. This will add a level of interest to the hair without being a major home styling commitment. It’s basically a face framing technique that adds texture without removing length – whew!
Medium and Long Layers
If your hair has that “hanging” or “lifeless” feeling then adding layers throughout your style may just be the change you’ve been seeking. Layers are great for giving bounce back to curls and enhancing the natural movement of your hair.
Colours, Braids, Balayage and more…
If you don’t want to go the way of fringes, texturing or layering, there’s still so much you can do. Think colour change, braids, buns or even Balayage (the gradual blending from dark roots to lighter ends) Come speak to our Epic Stylists to find out what style works best for you. You can book an appointment online or pop into any of our locations across Brisbane.
