Pros of Long Haircuts
Thinking about cutting your hair, but don’t want to say goodbye to those long, gorgeous tresses. Here are some reasons to keep your long hairstyle!
1. Long hair is extremely versatile
Let’s face facts. Short haircuts, while super cute, do not always leave a lot of room for styling options. Long haircuts, on the other hand, have endless possibilities when it comes to style!
You can wear your long locks in updos, half updos, braids, ponytails, buns, chignons. There are dozens of different options just for braids, so you will never run out of ways to style your long hair!
2. Long hair looks great on everyone
Another con of short haircuts is they don’t look good on everyone. Long hair, on the other hand, works well with every face shape, hair texture, and personality. You will never get bored with long hair if you know how to style it!
3. Long hair is great in cold weather
Short hair is no fun in the winter. Your longer locks will provide you with an extra layer of protection from the colder temperatures. According to LoveHairStyles, it may be a bit cumbersome in the summer months, but that’s where updos come in. You can always pull it back or style it in an updo to cool off. And long hair looks super cute with winter hats so added bonus!
4. Long hair is less maintenance
Those with long hair can attest to the fact that they do not have to make as many trips to the salon as those with shorter hair. Short haircuts need to be trimmed every few weeks to maintain the style. Yes, you do need to trim your long hair on occasion to keep it healthy, but not nearly as often as those with short hairstyles.
5. There are endless options for accessories
One of the best things about long hair is that there are hundreds of ways to dress up your hair with accessories: hats, clips, bows, hairpins, headbands, tiaras.…the list is endless. You can accessorize your hair to fit your mood or match your outfit, it’s up to you!

Expert Styling Tips for Long Hairstyles
- Hydrate your hair: Long hair can dry out rather quickly. Keep your hair hydrated with hot oil treatments, hair masks, and a leave-in conditioner. Coconut oil is a quick way to hydrate your long tresses. As well, drink lots of water as it is essential to healthy hair, skin, and nails!
- Do not towel dry your hair: Towel drying your hair can damage it. The best way to try your hair, so it won’t break or frizz is to tie it up in a cotton t-shirt or a hair wrap. Avoid blow-drying your hair as much as possible to keep it healthy and shiny.
- Don’t overwash your hair: Contrary to what some believe, you do not have to wash your hair every day. It is best to wash it once or twice a week. You can use dry shampoo between washings. Or co-wash your hair, which means conditioning it instead of washing it. Leave-in-conditioners can work wonders for your long hair.
Invest in a good hairbrush: Hairbrushes are not universal. Bristled brushes may work for short hair, but can damage long locks. Use a boar bristle brush or wide tooth comb only
