This long straight brunette hairstyle with layered bangs and blonde highlights is feminine, sexy, and modern. The look is polished with lots of shine, and it has a soft shine to give it a luxurious look. The layers of hair on top create an excellent contrast against the deep brown base.
Our model wears chandelier-like gold earrings with a black top, which beautifully complement her layered bangs and blonde highlights. The model is effortlessly flaunting her long sleek straight brunette hairstyle, which she has sweetly angled and teased with some product to add texture. For the hair styling, this lovely brunette 'do has layers sliced all through the front and sides to add shape and style, which complements the length. The bangs are also jagged cut to frame the top of the face and to complete the overall style brilliantly. This style best suits women with a round, oval, or heart-shaped face. Thin to medium density hair and fine to medium texture will also suit this look well. It features layers cut at different lengths that highlight the face and give it softness and warmth. The unique bangs help to frame the face and emphasize your best features, including your cheekbones, eyes, and lips. The blonde highlights add depth and shine while helping the color to stand out. The long straight hairstyle is trendy and timeless, suitable for all occasions.
Add some bounce to your look with this versatile hairstyle. It's long and naturally textured, and adds volume without being too heavy. Maintain this hairstyle with regular trimming after 4 to 6 weeks. Follow a regular cleaning and conditioning regimen to maintain a healthy scalp and hair. Add a little hairspray to the top section for extra hold and to keep those flyaway strands down.

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.
To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.
When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
