While long hair may take longer to style than short or medium length hair, the results that you can achieve are nothing short of stunning. To give your long locks a look that will turn heads, try these feminine hairstyle ideas!
Long Feminine Hairstyles
Flicks and Curls
A long length is perfect for adding flicks or big retro inspired curls to your hair. Give straight locks a body boost by flicking your ends as you blow-dry or use a hair straightener (top), or try some large, thick retro inspired curls (above) with the help of some heated hair rollers added through your mid-lengths and ends.
The perfect accessory for long locks are some very glam looking bangs! But whether your choice is for deep side-swept bangs with a sex kitten-esque vibe (top), or poker straight eye-skimming bangs (above), just make sure you have glossy locks for a great feminine finish.
Certainly one of the best known go-to feminine hairstyle options, loose waves will always be a popular look - and it's easy to see why! Regardless of whether your waves are relaxed and loose (top) or fuller and more defined (above), they compliment long hair so well and are so adaptable for any occasion that it makes it hard to try any other feminine hairstyle!
While traditional ponytails will hide your length at the back of your head, one of the great things about long locks is that you have the length to create a side ponytail instead! A side ponytail will give you the chance to show off your locks to their best advantage, so make the look feminine with pretty plaits (top) or lots of tousled curls and face-framing hair strands (above).
Feminine hairstyles aren't just for those with long locks. Short hair can also boast a gleefully girly look with the right kind of styling. As shown below...
Short Feminine Hairstyles
Flicks and Curls
If your short hair has some length to it then glam it up girly-style by adding some flicks or curls through your mid-lengths or ends with the help of your hair straightener and curling iron. Adding the flicks and curls around your face will provide an extra feminine touch by giving softness to your facial features.
Hair Accessories and Earrings
Any short hairstyle can be turned into a pretty style with the help of some hair accessories and earrings. For your hair accessories, think sparkly clips with lots of bling in the shape of flowers or butterflies. Earring wise, the bigger and danglier the better, and if your earrings have some shine to them then you're on the right track!
Length Around Your Face
One way to ensure that your short hairdo looks feminine to begin with is with a little length. If you're short hair already has length, then show it off to its best advantage by styling your hair softly around your face. This will automatically create a feminine finish.
As with a little length, having side-swept bangs incorporated into your shorter 'do will help to establish a feminine look. Not only will side-swept bangs offer you lots of pretty softness, but they will also draw attention directly to your eye area which you can then play up with lashings of mascara, soft eye shadow and touch of eyeliner for the ultimate short feminine hairstyle result!
