We take a look at some great long hairstyles that are cool enough for school.

Heading back to school is the perfect time to try out a new hairstyle, but finding the right look can be hard, especially when there are so many great options out there.

To help you get a new cute hairstyle (or three or four!) we've found some great long 'dos that are trendy, easy-to-style and just made for the classroom.

Side Styling

Long brown curly hairstyleA super easy way to put some low-fuss style into your locks is to side style your hair. Side styling can be done with any hair elasticity - whether it's straight, curly or full of waves (such as this great example) - and only requires you to take your beautiful long length, sweep it one side and pin it into place with some hair pins.


Straight Strands

Long straight hairstyleIf your hair is naturally straight then take advantage by trying out this long straight hairstyle. Use a deep side part to sweep your strands across your forehead and then let the rest of your hair flow down your shoulders. If you're hair isn't naturally straight then run a hair iron through your lengths to re-create the look, but don't forget to use a heat protection hair styling product first!


Easy Updo

Long hair upstyleFor a hairstyle that will keep your long hair up and out of the way during class, this easy updo is perfect. The key to this look is to not worry too much about getting every strand perfectly in place as the messy, undone style of the look is what makes it so appealing. To copy, leave some softening strands or your bangs out around your face and then pin or clip the rest of your hair into this messy but fabulous updo.


Full Bangs

Long hair with blunt bangsA great way to get a new look without a huge hairstyle change is to try bangs. These full bangs have been razor cut unevenly to provide a soft, light bang that also provides plenty of interest. For steps on how to re-create a full bang look, check out our article, How to Style: Blunt Cut Bangs.


Side-Swept Bangs

Long brown hair with side swept bangsIf full bangs aren't for you then softer bangs, such as these side-swept bangs, are a great option and can easily be achieved. Another great thing about these light, versatile bangs is that they can even give you a different look if you divide your hair and bangs into a middle hair part. This will allow you to 'hide' your bangs by styling them to run along each side of your face and create a whole new look!



Long hair with headbandOur final back to school hairstyle for long hair features one of our favorite hair accessories - the headband! Headbands can be added to any hairstyle and will add plenty of fun, funk and a great splash of color depending on the type of headband you choose.
