2012 is going to be the year of great looking hairstyles whether your hair is long, short, curly or straight. But, if you are tired of the same boring look, try some of these hairstyle ideas for long, straight hair. There is a look out there for you to ensure that you look the best that you possibly can for this year.
Super Sleek: Bust out your straightening iron and get to smoothing out those frazzled tresses. This year try to keep it as smooth as possible with some frizz taming serum and a flat iron to get your locks at neat as possible. Parts down the middle and to the side are just as popular - just take a look at the celebrities!
A Simple Pull-Back: If you are having a day where it seems no matter what you do, your locks will not cooperate, then try pulling all of your hair back into either a bun or a high ponytail. You can leave some tendrils or bangs out of the bun to give it a less severe look. This is a great style at work - allowing you an easy change at the end of the day.
Au Naturel: Another great idea is to just go natural. Whatever the texture of your locks may be, just throw in some frizz easing serum or some control gel and get on with your day!
Braids: Braids are all the rage this year and will look fun but mature at the same time. You can do a French Braid, a half braid, a loose slung to the side braid or a messy braid. Anything goes with a braid.
Bangs: Bangs are a wonderful hairstyle idea for long, straight hair because it breaks up the heaviness of locks that are one length with an interesting frame for your face. You can opt for whimsical side-swept look or go all out with a bold horizontal bang.
Accessories: If you want to spice up your look without cutting it, adding accessories is a good hairstyle idea for long, straight hair.Pins look great as well as bands and flowers. Keep it light and fun and you can't go wrong.
