Styling to the side

One of the more popular hairstyles for long hair is to style it to the side. This entails bringing all the hair to one side of the face to create a more feminine, polished look than the typical loose locks.

One of the easier hairstyles to achieve is that shown below. The first thing you have to do is to curl the ends of your hair or, if you want a more voluminous, relaxed look, start the curls from the middle of the hair (like the girl shown in the image).

Then simply take a large strand from one side of the head and twist it tightly. Bring this to the other side (as far as the strand will reach) and secure it there with some clips. To keep your hairdo in place apply plenty of hairspray for a incredibly elegant and beautiful look.

Easy ponytail hairstyle

Ponytails are also more fashionable today and is very simple to achieve for a perfectly elegant and sophisticated style suitable for any occasion. To do this, comb your hair and create a middle parting so tat hair strands frame your face and make it look slimmer.

The beauty of this hairstyle is that the hair is tied slightly off-centre so that it falls to one side of your neck and creates an elegantly feminine image.

Notice that this isn't a structured hairdo; rather, it is a relaxed style wit a few loose strands here and there. You could leave two thick strands to fall at either side of your face. Spray with hairspray to keep it intact for longer.
