Medium straight hair with smoothed bangs
This long wavy hair cut is simply and flattering. It's perfect for achieving a mane with waves of hair that fall gently below the clavicle.

In addition, it achieves a fun contrast with smooth and straight bangs, providing a chic touch to add to the original.
If you are looking at these ideas for long wavy haircuts, but you don't yet have wavy hair yourself, don't worry! At oneHOWTO, we explain how to make waves in your hair using a flat iron.
If you have long or curly hair and you wonder what is the best cut for wavy hair, this is a sure hit, because fringing the last part of each lock will free your hair without the need for layers. It will also give you extra movement.
The choppy ends, even at different heights, achieve a cheerful and extra youthful look that is easy to style and flatters at any age. You can wear it naturally or with a touch of fixing gel on the ends for a more sophisticated effect.
If the bob has become one of the star cuts in recent years, the lob (‘long bob’) is the trend that currently prevails for long wavy hair. Its secret is to create internal layers that highlight the volume of the waves, while maintaining the total length of the overall cut. The result is a classic long hair style, but with a renewed air that neither curls nor weighs down. It stands out for its elegance and subtle movement.
This hair cut is also ideal for those with frizzy hair. If this is you, check out our article on home remedies for frizzy hair to help you get the right look for you.
The asymmetric cut is a trend for a wavy, long hair which has been around for a little while. However, it is staying around because it is a bold and effective cut. Basically, it consists of dividing the hair into two sections (not quite halves) and giving each a different length. If you are feeling a little brave, you can wear your hair parted on one side and leave a very short side. Many people even shave it, letting the rest of the wavy hair fall to the other side.
When styling, leave it loose for a nice long-short contrast. Another option, if you choose this cut, is to do a tousled braid on the long side. In both cases it is original and innovative, but also more permanent, so bear this in mind.
Long shaggy cut
Do you want to sport extra long, ultra modern hair with a rebellious touch? If so, one of the most fashionable wavy haircuts for women is the shaggy cut. It is a long wavy haircut based on layers that allow a controlled disorder that maintains the hairstyle in the middle of the mane and reinforces the ends, making them take center stage.
It is perfect for giving life to long and wavy hair avoiding more boring straight styles. If you want to complete the cut, some California highlights that gradually illuminate the different strands will be the perfect complement to your long shaggy cut.
The shaggy cut for wavy and long hair is easier than you might think, although it is always best carried out by a professional. However, if you really want to try it at home, check out our article on easy and stylish hairstyles.
Wavy haircut with straight ends
It's arguably the opposite of ashaggy cut and an option to consider if you want to give your long, wavy hair an extra touch of sophistication. Especially flattering on hair that falls below the shoulders, this wavy haircut consists of bringing the final hairline absolutely straight, achieving a ‘freshly cut ends’ effect. In addition, its elegance lies in finishing the hairstyle by highlighting the waves with tweezers so that they are fixed and glamorous.
It is a basic cut for long wavy hair that allows multiple finishes to suit your style and facial features. There are several types of gradients and any of them add extra movement to the hairstyle.
You can choose, for example, to grade the front bangs, those that frame the face, creating a ‘ladder’ of waves around your face. Another option is to fade from the back to the front. This way you can take the hair shorter in the nape area and increase its length as it gets closer to the chin. Although it is a trend which isn't going way for wavy hair, itt will make you look very fresh.
Two layered haircut with bangs
It is a classic cut ideal for extra long and wavy hair to be more attractive, as it achieves a feeling of lightness and movement. The cut consists of dividing the hair into two areas creating a layer at medium height, which will be the one that breaks the monotony of the hairstyle.
In addition, a fringe is made, also divided into two sections. This is kept open on both sides of the forehead (as if it were a curtain). The bangs are a fundamental part of this sixties look that never goes out of style. It is one of the best haircuts with a fringe, an element that makes this one of our favorite haircuts for wavy hair.
