Having this length of hair is an age old tradition for women, especially in the east. But for many the maintenance regime can be quite demanding for day to day wear. Fortunately, techniques like Japanese hair straightening or thermal reconditioning have made these burdens much, much lighter.
Such length carries with it a natural aura of femininity and oozes seduction. The long length flows with grace and bounces back into shape with every sway or arc of the head. There is also the added benefit of pining up the hair for those elegant short looks that enhance the neckline, styles that are most commonly worn at certain evening receptions.
Plaiting long hair and wrapping the plaits around the head can serve as a natural head dressing, a hairstyle which was common amongst the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Long hair with buoyant curls, or spirals give for that party look, whilst long cascading waves lean toward that fashionable glamorous look and frizzing the hair is ideal for that trendy matted look.
Long hair can be maximized with volume and body, giving the hairstylist ample weight and directional control. Layering long hair can produce very striking results, especially when combined with product enhanced finishes. Good hair length captures more light and shadow which gives more shade variation to natural looking hair and adding exaggerated flicks leads to a sexier style. All these styles can be enhanced by adding a touch of colour and/ or highlights which gives the desired look a more dramatic effect.
