If you have had long hair for a while, you may have started to feel bored with it. After all, long hair requires upkeep to make it look vibrant and healthy. Perhaps you have toyed with the idea of cutting it all off and starting over. Just for you, here are some ideas for long hairstyle inspiration you must see before going short.
One reason you may be bored or annoyed with your long hair might be because you have kept it all one length. It is easy to feel like you have run out of ideas for what you can do with it.
A great way to fall in love with long hair again is to have layers cut into your hair. Whether your hair is long or short, layers will create movement and excitement every time you move your head. Make those layers count for more by having your tresses streaked with lovely highlights.
Long hair is ideal for the ombre look. Imagine your tresses shimmering from a pale gray-purple shade at the top, and gradually intensifying to a darker shade of purple at the bottom. This look is not for everyone, but it is eye-catching and unique.
Another hot trend is balayage. This is a French word to describe a natural, hand-painted approach to coloring the hair.
