23 Long Hairstyles for When You’re Ready to Let it Grow

KERRY WASHINGTON

Washington is a hair chameleon but we’re particularly fond of her long, full curls at the 2016 Emmy Awards. Nourish natural ringlets with the DevaCurl How to Quit Shampoo: The Original Cleanse & Condition Curl Kit.

DEMI LOVATO

Check out that length! If you’re tired of waiting around for your hair to grow out, take a cue from Lovato and get some extensions that work beautifully with face-framing layers.

JENNIFER ANISTON

If you’ve been wishing you could steal Aniston’s hair since the days of Friends, you’re not alone. At 48, her locks look healthier than ever, even at a longer length.

DEMI MOORE

Moore always has enviable hair, but her current waist-length look is especially stunning. Sometimes she switches it up with curls or beachy waves, but a middle part and ultra-sleek strands are her go-to.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER

Leave it to the woman who brought Carrie Bradshaw to life to keep rocking long, lustrous length after 52. No one would expect anything less from this style icon.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA

Blinded by Chopra’s shine? You’re not alone. The Quantico star’s length is incredible, but that gleam really makes the style stand out. Try some hair oil — like R+Co’s Tinsel Smoothing Oil ($25, bluemercury.com) — to steal her glow.

NICOLE KIDMAN

What’s not to love about Kidman’s hair? Although she’s better known for her natural red hue, the Aussie stunner looks incredible as an ice blonde too, It beautifully complements her not-too-long, not-too-short length.

MEGHAN MARKLE

This soon-to-be-royal is known for her always-flawless long hair. She often wears her dark tresses in a deep side part, which you can mimic for a dramatic look. Get her high-wattage shine with Keratin Complex Style Therapy Glotion Potion Styling Oil.

KERI RUSSELL

In the 15 years since Russell’s famous hair debuted on Felicity, she’s gone from curly to sleek. She often wears her long mane parted to the side, with loose waves that are straighter up top with more body on the bottom.

JENNIFER LOPEZ

J. Lo looks positively ageless with her multi-dimensional layers. To copy Lopez’s flowing locks, you want to get “long layers with a weightless line so your hair moves freely,” says Kevin Mancuso, global creative director for Nexxus.

SOFIA VERGARA

Vergara opts for a sleek and minimalist look. If you want to pump up the volume for this style, start by using a round brush to blow your hair out straight, Mancuso explains. Then use large velcro rollers to cool your hair, brush through and finish with Nexxus Comb Thru Natural Hold Design and Finishing Mist.

BLAKE LIVELY

Lively is aglow with her beach-y, soft waves. Lots of shine is your key to combatting dullness in long hair, so use light reflecting products, stylist Tasha Brown recommends. Try Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray.

BEYONCÉ

Queen Bey’s long layered haircut works well with most face shapes says hairstylist Kelly Sayers of Marie Robinson Salon. She recommends using a curler “to create a tousled, natural-wave look” and then applying a texture spray “to make the waves last.” Try Pacifica Salty Waves to get the look.

AMY ADAMS

Adams’s near-perfect curls are full of bounce and lift. To create waterfall tresses like hers, use a 1-inch to 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron, says Brown.

KIM KARDASHIAN

Kardashian loves to rock a trendy center part. For amazing shine to emphasize any long hairstyle, finish your look with a weightless shine spray like Kenra Shine Spray says Brown. “It’s almost aerosol so it goes on really light and won’t weigh hair down,” she says.

AMAL CLOONEY

Always sophisticated, Clooney goes for retro glam with her side swept curls. Sayers recommends using a roller set to create this look. Try the T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe 12-Piece Set.

NAOMI CAMPBELL

Campbell’s straight across fringe is super fresh against her long hair. Sayers says straight across bangs will work with most face shapes except for ones that are more square, since the bangs will might make you look too angular.

CHRISSY TEIGEN

Teigen shows off lots of volume with her long, cascading waves, and her bangs give her options. “Side swept bangs help a long haircut to have interest especially if you are always pulling it up,” says Sayers.

GISELE BÜNDCHEN

Bündchen’s cut layers are designed to enhance her hair’s natural texture, says Sayers. To get her look use curl enhancing cream or a sea salt spray like Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray.

ANGELINA JOLIE

For adding volume to long, silky layers like Jolie’s, Brown recommends using Kerastase Resistance Volumifique Impulse Amplifying Mousse for added body and hold.

PADMA LAKSHMI

Lakshmi’s layers are cut to frame her face. This type of graduated layer cut works well for any face shape, Sayers says.

LUCY LIU

Liu sports an easy-going cut with long layers. It works with coarse textured hair and any face shape says Sayers. “You can blow it out with a round brush to give it movement,” she adds.

OLIVIA WILDE

Wilde can pull off any hair look, but the face-framing layers and ombré dye job she had at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were particularly flattering. Well-executed ombré always looks fabulous on super long hair.
