“The main trend in 2018 is the focus on naturalness. Long, slightly curly, voluminous hair in natural shades is in fashion. The pixie haircut with elongated bangs and an extremely short nape is again relevant – take note. The 90s are at the peak of popularity today: high-waisted jeans, oversized bombers, styling with twisted up or down ends. Braids are still relevant – the more careless the better. Pay attention to accessories: invisible, bulky elastic bands, hairpins. I’ll tell you what hairstyles for long hair are easy to repeat. “

Option number 1: complex braid with strands released

Long hair will never go out of style. They give the widest scope for imagination to stylists. Braids are one of my favorite options. For fixing with such styling, I recommend using the most inconspicuous means. Strong fixation varnish Fixation Finishing Spray, Nak is perfect (you can read the reviews of the BeautyHack editors on strong fixation varnishes here). It does not contain water and dries instantly for a natural look. The varnish is resistant to moisture – what is needed in our climate. Important: the product is easy to comb out and is completely washed off with regular shampoo.

Option number 2: careless curls

A pair of tongs is needed to model this hairstyle. To protect your hair from the aggressive effects of high temperatures, use thermal protection. My choice – a spray with a light hold effect Thermal Shield Protective Sealant, Nak. The product is suitable for all types of hair, reliably protecting them during drying with a hairdryer, using an iron and curling iron. This thermal protection has a slight fixing effect. The composition does not contain parabens and other aggressive substances (scientific facts about parabens can be found here). Doesn’t weigh or stick hair – good for frequent use.

Option number 3: High, careless bun

When creating bundles, the hair must first be wound on a thick curling iron. You can use a root volume spray. Perfectly lifts hair Superb Lifting Spray, O’right. Take note if you have thin hair lacking volume – suitable for daily styling. The spray has good elasticity and at the same time restores hair, penetrating under the raised scales. The biggest plus of Superb Lifting Spray, O’right is its almost all-natural formula. It consists of 83% organic substances: amino acid, date extract and other components that prevent fragility.

Option number 4: low tail

To repeat this style, first apply heat protection to the hair and pull it out with an iron. Comb and create a low ponytail, leaving two thick strands at the temples. Wrap the tail with them and fix it with invisible ones. The final step is commit. I recommend using Firm Hold, Aloxxi varnish. Moisture resistant, dries quickly, contains UV protection, moisturizing grape seed oil, pomegranate, canadian pine, green tea, chamomile, algae, licorice root extract. A simple hairstyle that looks very impressive.

Option number 5: low beam

Classic styling, which is appropriate under any circumstances: it is good both at a gala event and at a regular dinner with friends. The secret to creating a voluminous low bun is pre-curled hair (the review of the editor-in-chief of BeautyHack Karina Andreeva on the famous styler from Dyson can be read here). Then they gather in the tail. And only after that the beam is formed. Finally, you can use Shine Mist Conditioning Shine Spray, Nak. It eliminates excessive frizz without weighing down or sticking to hair. The spray can be used as a daily care product for the hair ends.
