For hair-savvy women, length is one of the most important considerations when choosing a style. Do you prefer the chic edginess of a short cut, the versatility of a mid-length style, or the indulgent femininity of long, luxurious locks? While ladies of all ages now have many different options available to them, many still prefer the look and feel of long hair. Still, there is more to long hair than simply growing it out; it can be styled, layered, colored and shaped, and if you want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to your coif, consider looking to celebrities! Here are some of 2010's most requested long haircuts at beauty salons all over the country
- Kim Kardashian's Sexy Waves
The Kardashian sisters may be controversial figures in popular culture – why are they famous again? – but it's hard to deny the fact that Kim K. always looks polished and well put together, and her glorious hair is a large part of her look. If you want to work the modern-day bombshell look too, ask your beauty salon for long, graduated layers and a deep chestnut brown or true black color (the shade you choose should depend on your skin tone; fair women should stick to rich brunette hues, while olive-skinned ladies can go completely black). Add some body and texture by creating waves with a large-barreled curling iron to finish the look.
- Carrie Underwood's Glam Curls
Former American Idol contestant and current country pop superstar Carrie Underwood clearly knows the power of good hair, allowing her cascading blonde curls to take center stage at every public appearance. Whether your hair is naturally curly or you have a great relationship with your curling iron, the key to Carrie's style is healthy hair with lots of body, capped by charming sideswept bangs.
- Amanda Seyfried's Boho Simplicity
After making waves in recent movies like Mamma Mia!, this former Mean Girl is all grown up – and women everywhere are heading to beauty salons to duplicate her look. Luckily, Amanda's locks are relatively easy to master if you have the right hair type: Naturally straight. This is essentially a one-length, wash and wear style. Make sure to part your hair down the middle for that neo-hippie touch!
All of these styles are sure to continue making hair headlines for the remainder of 2010, and well into the future. And one thing is certain: Long hair will never go out of style.
