So many girls have long hair and don’t do much with it. If you have a style you love, you’re in luck. If you just let your long hair hang there, you’re in the majority. If you have long hair, why not play around with it to see if you can find something else fun to do with it?

Braid It!

A long braid down your back can be surprisingly romantic and fun. Do a lose braid with some escaped tendrils of hair for a wispy romantic look or do a tight braid with a surprising twist, like a colored strand or a ribbon braided through. You can do one braid, two pigtail braids or even get wild and do the equivalent of dreadlocks all over your head – this is especially fun to do at sleepovers or long bus rides to football games and such.

Dye It!

There are some dyes that wash out in just a few washes, so you don’t need to fear a permanent change if you want to try being a brunette for a week. Just remember that you shouldn’t change your hair color more than a shade or two at a time. Bleaching your hair will get you yellow hair in most cases, and this is especially true if you have dark hair. It is easier to add some highlights than to make your whole head platinum blonde. Be sure your parents are okay with the change, however – you’d hate to have black hair at your Aunt Freda’s wedding this weekend and risk the wrath of the ‘rents.

Put It Up!

Updos get a lot of respect around dance season, but you can do your own updo for the weekend just as easily as you can get one done – it just takes practice, a rubber band and lots of bobby pins. Start with a high ponytail and pin the individual strands into ringlets and layers. If you work in small sections, you’ll soon have a head of fun curls and swirls. Add a funky little barrette and you’ll be in business.

Pull It Back!

Get wild and go for a high ponytail aka cheerleader. Or go more studious and use a barrette to pull it back at the nape of your neck with a bit of teasing or backcombing at the crown of your head. Regardless, soften the look with tendrils around your face and some groovy bangs. You can dress this up as well using ribbons, clip-ins and sassy barrettes or pins to add a bit of flare.

Pull Some Back!

Long hair is not all or nothing. Put in a gentle part, and then loosely pull back the top half of your hair. Braid it or put it in a loose knot or just leave it as a ponytail. The effect is elegant, especially if you pull some back to the nape of the neck and leave the rest free.

I switch back and forth. I grow it out as long as I can without getting annoying, and then I go get it cut chin length and donate it to locks of love.

Well in most salon books 'long' is considered below the shoulder. Medium is under the chin to the shoulders and short is above the chin...though some would argue otherwise. It's different for a lot of people because it's mostly based off of opinion.

I don't like low-ponies either. My sis wore one everyday of her childhood (tomboy who's mother wouldn't let her cut her hair off) so I've always considered it a tomboy hair do, and I'm far from being a tomboy, lol.

Some can be pretty, but as for me, I just don't do those either. *shrugs*

What is the definition of 'long hair'?

Mine is 2-3 inches below my shoulder but it feels short.

I also dislike having my hair in braids.

I like some updos, like high ponytails, side ponytails and ponytails twisted upwards and held with a clip. But I dislike buns and low-ponytails.

I wear headbands to keep my bangs out of my face, or sometimes just as an accessory.

I wear half of my hair back in a pony sometimes and leave my bangs and the rest down, but I just clip if instead of using an elastic.

I don't do braids, just not my thing...

I do put my hair in headbands and half pony tails...but that's not out of the ordinary. If I wanted to do something 'different' then I would keep my hair down isntead of constantly putting it up, lol.

It gets in my way when it's down. : P
