Extra long hairstyles are just so sexy when they're worn loose and flowing over the shoulders and polished for a high shine finish! Add long layers to increase the movement of your locks and keep them from falling flat. Smooth through strands with a hair friendly flat iron and define ends with styling cream, serum or glossifier. For a quick hair update, add blunt brow-skimming bangs for the ultimate statement.

Wear your long hair with extra flair by adding wavy texture only to the ends. To style, use a paddle brush to blow-dry hair smooth, working through the crown with a light styling cream so hair lies flat against the head and won't frizz up. Next, take a large barrel curling iron and wrap hair in random sections, creating oversized, loose waves. Finish by brushing through cooled ends gently with your fingers.
