Lovely long, layered locks are a no-brainer, we love them. But let's take the look back to the top and focus on the face. Are you more of a blunt bangs girl, or do you like to keep that forehead free? It's time for "Match the Look"!
Long hair with bangs
The hairstyle: Bangs can be an effective way of adding some structure to long hair and balancing out the face. By asking your hair stylist to give your bangs a feathery, almost piecey finish, you'll avoid them looking too harsh, unless you like a contrast in which case embrace the edgier effect!
The style: Wear your lengths loose, layered, and floating naturally over your shoulders. A discreet hair lightening technique such as balayage can be a way of bringing depth to layered hair, which can sometimes look thin against strong bangs.
What the editors say: Bangs are a way of drawing the attention directly to your eyes, so think about make-up or accessories that can pull the look together. Vintage shades, for example, or a smoky cat eye.
Long hair without bangs
The hairstyle: Polished without being a perfectionist, long hair that sweeps down the sides of your face is a hairstyle classic. The key to success is all about your hair stylist's skills at layering – finding the perfect balance of sections that naturally flow from root to tip.
The style: This summer we're banking on long blond looks. But instead of the usual surfer-girl look, this season blond is more sophisticated, appearing in shades of cool beige, bronde and even platinum!
What the editors say: Avoid dry, frazzled-looking ends by using a weekly conditioning mask and focusing on the tips, which can quickly become damaged if not trimmed regularly. We love the Vitamino Color A Ox Jelly Mask, specially formulated for weakened and colored hair.
Will you be rocking bangs or a fierce forehead look this season?
