Hairstyles for long hair: looking for some inspiration for yours? Then take a peek at the best celebrity hair cuts and layered looks...

Long hairstyles can be hard to dream up when you’re feeling uninspired. Most of us have worn our hair long at one time or another, but if you’re getting a little bored of the same old styles, we urge you to experiment with these original ‘dos before considering a drastic cut.

And with those stylish celebs showcasing a whole host of hairstyles for long hair we can try at home, we’ve rounded-up some of our top looks to try.

If you’re a fan of the ‘girl next door’ look, then why not channel the tumbling tresses of Kate Middleton? Her long wavy hairstyle is easy enough to replicate and so a suitable style to aspire to.

Meanwhile, stars like Beyoncé Knowles and Victoria Beckham get their hairstyles for long hair nailed with an effortlessly cool undone curl with the same styling, but just a little extra help from some strong hold hairsprays and dedicated pamper products.

Jennifer Lopez has traded in her sleek ponytail for a glamourous and voluminous textured updo that frames her face and adds drama to her over all look, while top model Kendall Jenner backcombs her long hair into a bouffant.

Other hairstyles for long hair, include the poker straight look. Devotees Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Biel are also the key looks to nod to. Low maintenance for the naturally straight-haired among us, their polished and groomed long hairstyles, centre and sideparts alike, rely more on a really great cut.

Downton Abbey’s Lily James has really upped her long hair game. She encourages her layers to fall down her back by choosing a defined middle parting.

Elizabeth Olsen’s also been snapped sporting something similar.

Fancy rocking something a little less contemporary? Zooey Deschanel’s your go-to girl for bouncy and beautiful retro-inspired hairstyles for long hair.

Finally, when it comes to colour, long hairstyles suit a range of hues – think blonde, brunette, black and red, or even dip dye – so we’ve handpicked the best celebrity looks from a broad catalogue of long-locked beauties.
