Long straight hair: femininity "par excellence"

The absolute symbol of femininity, this sleek long look, both free-spirited and controlled, is a true classic. We may have under-estimated its power for a long time, but this refined and striking style is now back on center-stage...

Less is more: the new hairstyle mantra for long locks

Long straight hair, as minimalist as it may be, remains a timeless classic. Feminine and elegant, smooth long hair is anything but flat. If more sophisticated hairstyles have been leaving it in the shade, the natural look is back in fashion's good books - gracing runways all over the world. Whether you have a busy life or are looking to add some 'grunge' to your look, straight locks are the final ingredient to bring some panache into your life.

A straight smooth cut: a style that's ideal for brunettes

According to Delphine Courteille, a hair stylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, this "great, on-trend, magnificent" cut is particularly flattering on brunettes. "A smooth long cut is really beautiful on chestnut shades. On the other hand, unfortunately, light and blonde hair loses a lot of volume with this style".

Locks to catch the light

According to Delphine Courteille, a modern mid-length cut can be worn with a side part for more body. This also helps capture a maximum of light and show off glossy hair. Other than the length, it's the shiny side to this style that makes it special. This is why we recommend a quick trip to the salon for a few highlights or a gloss to really boost the glamour.
