It’s back-to-school season, which calls for a back-to-school haircut! Of course you can return the school hallways with a fresh chop, or you can choose the subtle route. Many of us are scared of haircuts or fear letting go of our long locks (guilty as charged). For those of you who still want a fresh look and healthy hair, this article is for you. Here are the best long haircuts to try this school year!
Front Layers Long Haircuts
Try out some front layers to switch up your look without going short. With this, the hair stylist only cuts the pieces that frame your face. This is angled the perfect amount to add some drama to an ordinary style and correct your face shape. Especially if your hair is naturally straight or fine, then this is the easiest haircut you’ll ever have to do!
Chopped & Mid-Layers
For an instant volume boost, you’re going to want mid-layers. When layers are cut starting at the mid-point, rather than all around, your hair can be styled wavy in an elegant way without looking too beachy. Furthermore, lots of thick and blunt layers scattered everywhere add more volume to your look. The best part is that these long haircuts flatter all face shapes and hair textures!
All Around Layers
If you want to add a little more drama, but still want to keep it simple, then add all around layers. This versatile option complements every face shape and can be styled with a middle or side part. The key is to have your hair cut downward, keeping the layers long. By cutting it slightly imperfect, you can blow it out or let it air-dry for an instant style!
Tapered & Wispy Ends
To avoid too-blunt of a long haircut, be sure to ask for wispy ends. This gives you an overall softer look, while still adding some texture to your ends. You can still get a long-layered cut to remove bulk, but this long hairstyle mainly focuses on your ends. A special scissor technique or a razor is typically used to create the perfect tapered look.
Addition of Bangs
If you want to keep your length completely, then you might want to consider adding bangs to your long hairstyle. For straight-across bangs, just ensure they aren’t cut too wide or too thick. Your bangs should create a triangle shape that aligns with the outer corners of your eyes. In addition, your stylist should snip up into the ends so they’re not too blunt and add a few graduated layers in front. You can also opt for side bangs to create a whole new look. All it takes is a simple, angled trim!
