Rock Your Long Locks With Curls, Chignons, and More

Feb 12 2014 - 5:00am

Women with long hair can attest to the fact that more hair doesn't necessarily mean better hair. When you have lots of length to work with, styling can be more hassle than it's worth — think hours of blow-drying, curling, and pinning. Well, it's time to get out of your hair rut for Valentine's Day! You can do more than the simple down 'do and the bad-hair-day ponytail. We've gathered our favorite red carpet moments to give long-haired ladies a jolt. Braids, buns, half-up looks, and sideswept styles can all be found within. Your ponytail holder is definitely going to get jealous this Valentine's Day.

Taylor Swift

Taylor's upswept style is ideal for a date night. The loose curls around the face give it a romantic feeling.

Miranda Kerr

These over-the-shoulder curls seen on Miranda are one of the most popular formal looks from 2013.

Maria Menounos

To get the fullness of Maria's gorgeous fishtail braid, be sure to pull at the braid to give it width.

Naomie Harris

Instead of going for the typical half-up hairstyle, Naomie twisted side sections around a middle part. Très chic!


Fergie [1] creates the illusion of a voluminous ponytail with this half-up, half-down style. The barrette is the perfect final touch to complete the polished look.

Amanda Seyfried

Planning to wear a halter dress? Pull up your hair into a twisted bun à la Amanda.

Lea Michele

For the party girl, Lea's two-textured style is the ticket. Get the slicked-back look by using a pomade and letting the ends hang loose.

Rita Ora

Rita knows that retro never goes out of style. So bring on the waves and the red lipstick.

Jamie Chung

A stick-straight style like Jamie's is the best way to show off your length. Just make sure to keep things smooth with an anti-frizz serum.

Nicole Kidman

The ponytail might be your go-to casual style, but pump up the look for the holidays with a pompadour similar to Nicole's Cannes hairdo.

Naya Rivera

In a pinch, pull up your hair into a midheight ponytail. To get Naya's wavy texture, just wrap the ends around a curling iron.

Elle Fanning

Elle's simple blowout was topped with a sparkling hair accessory. It's an easy look for the boho chick!

Jessica Biel

Jessica's faux bob has an asymmetrical tilt that will look gorgeous paired with oversize earrings.

Kate Bosworth

You've heard of the mohawk and you've probably heard of the undercut trend, but this braided look on Kate is something completely new. It's the perfect edgy style with which to ring in the New Year.

Sandra Bullock

Some would say beachy waves have no place on the red carpet, but Sandra proves those naysayers wrong.

Jaime King

A deep side part, stick straight hair, and a gilded crown set Jaime's style apart.

Jennifer Morrison

If you want to try something different, steal this look from Jennifer. The hair ties give this ponytail a more modern edge.

Rashida Jones

Bangs and curls are a simple but flattering look for Rashida (and you, too).
