LOVE IT LONG: LOOKS FOR LONG HAIR IN 2009

February 24, 2009 by Clark 

Got long hair? Well, you’re in luck, because 2009 is showcasing some great ways to ring the changes in the way you wear it. Long hair allows you to experiment with classic up-dos, to try out waves or poker-straight tresses, and to look as beautifully feminine as only you can.

You’ll be the envy of all the girls and the lust object of all the boys if you tap into this season’s simple but effective look.

Centre part long hair to key into Edwardian chic, and draw up into a low bun, a chignon, or a French twist for a style that never dates. Not your cup of tea? Maybe you’re more of a modern girl. In that case, flash your fashion credentials and slick a modern gloss on these classic styles with a sideways bun or one-sided ponytail – the asymmetrical look is perfect for the coming spring.

You might consider getting a wispy Jane Birkin fringe. Nowadays Jane is mainly known for being the instigator of the phenomenal Birkin bag, but in the ‘sixties, her style icon status was well deserved. A wispy fringe will update your princess locks without requiring a substantial chop, and it softens the face. (It can even hide the beginnings of wrinkles, but remember, you didn’t hear that from me.) Or plait wet hair before you sleep to wake up to the kind of ultra-femme gentle waves that’ll have the boys queueing up outside.

A word of warning, though: make sure your tresses are worth showing off before you start practising your French plaiting skills. Try a henna wax for a salon-quality deep conditioning treatment that’ll cost you less than a fiver, or protect your hair from the perils of hairdryers and straighteners with a nifty heat defence spray like Tresemme’s. This bit’s key, because bobs may come in and layers be sooo last year, but the Worzel Gummidge look will never catch on on the catwalk.
