Formal Long Hairstyles You Can Do At Home

Going to the hair dresser can be pricy, especially if you need help with quick formal long hairstyles for various parties and weekly events. This is why it is a good idea to learn how to do your own hair, so that you can pull off different looks without putting a dent in your wallet. Here are several simple formal hairdos for long hair that will make it a lot easier for you to get ready for special events.

When Eva Mendes wore a long, curly ponytail on the red carpet, this instantly became one of the most popular formal long hairstyles. This look is super easy to throw together. First, you have to tease your roots around the crown area of your head prior to pulling hair back. This will prevent your hairstyle from looking too severe or flat. Secure hair with an elastic, then wrap one to two inch sections of hair around a curling iron, alternating the direction that you curl in. Once you have finished curling your hair, use a flexible hold spray like Herbal Essence Set Me Up Extra Hold Hair Spray, in order to give your ponytail more body and volume.

Accessorizing is another great to accentuate formal long hairstyles. There are a variety of head pieces to choose from, such as hippie headbands, mini crowns and tiaras, head scarves, wraps, and jeweled headbands. Nicole Richie has created an extensive line of decorative head accessories in her collection House of Harlow 1960. You can either curl your hair or straighten it, depending on the look that you are going for with your accessories, and you can also add braids or a ponytail for a more Grecian style look.
