8 Best Hairstyles For Long Straight Thin Hair – If you’re a woman with long, thin hair, then you know how hard it is to style.
It doesn’t matter if it’s naturally straight or if you have to straighten it every day—no matter what, your hair can quickly go from sleek and smooth to flat and boring in no time at all.
Luckily for us ladies with long, straight locks, there are plenty of great hairstyles that will keep our locks looking full and voluminous all day long.
In this post we’ll be taking a look at some of my favorite styles for women like me who want something easy yet elegant:
The Long Ponytail.
First, tie your hair into a ponytail. You can use either a regular elastic or one of those fancy scrunchies if you want to be fancy.
Just make sure it’s tight enough so that when you pull on the ends of your hair, they don’t fall out of place. Then pull gently!
If there are any knots in your hair that are particularly hard to get through, try brushing them out before beginning this process (or use some conditioner).
It might take some trial and error at first but once you’ve got it down pat you’ll be able to do this with ease!
The Hair Bun.
The bun is one of the most versatile hairstyles you can have. While it might seem like a lot of work, it’s actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
Plus, once you’ve mastered this look and know what products work best for your hair type, it only takes a few minutes each morning to do the bun!
To start off with, make sure that your hair is clean and dry before attempting this style. You can add some product in order to help with managing your locks before putting them up into a bun.
As far as tools go: all you need are two bobby pins!
A rounded one would be best if you’re trying out this look for the first time since its tapered shape makes wearing a ponytail easier than using standard ones but feel free to experiment until finding one that works best for you!
Once everything else has been taken care of all that’s left is pinning up those little strands into place so they don’t fall out during whatever activity we might be involved in next — whether reading by candlelight or dancing like nobody’s watching (or maybe both at once).
Braid it up.
Braids are a great way to add volume and texture to long, straight hair. If you don’t want your braid to look too flat or bulky, try using small braids instead of large ones.
It’s also possible that braiding can help give the appearance of thicker hair by adding height at the crown.
If you’re not sure where to start with braiding, consider one of these looks: French braid updo, fishtail braid, waterfall braid or side-swept plait (also known as a Dutch braid).
If you have long straight thin hair and want to wear a ponytail, then this is the hairstyle for you! You’ll need to start out by making a ponytail.
You can do this by parting your hair in the center and twisting each side up towards the back of your head. Then use bobby pins to secure them into place.
Once that’s done, take any excess pieces of hair at the top of your head and tie them together with an elastic band or twisty tie. That’s all there is to it!
This hairstyle will keep your ears warm while keeping everything else out of sight!
Messy Waves With Subtle Layers.
Use a medium-barrel curling iron to create loose waves. If you want super loose waves, use hair spray on the ends of your hair after you’re done curling it.
Curling wands and straighteners can also be used to create messy waves, but these tools are usually more effective at creating tight curls or straightened locks.
A curling brush is another option for those with thin hair who want to add volume to their style while making sure that the strands stay separated from one another as they curl into place.
A Side Dutch Braid.
A side Dutch braid is an easy way to add volume while keeping your look polished. To start, use a comb to section off a section of hair from the front left side of your head.
Use a hair tie to secure it into place as you begin braiding from this section down toward the nape of your neck on both sides.
Continue braiding until you reach the end point, then secure with another hair tie and let out any excess hairs in order for them not to get tangled up in your braid!
For a simple finish, all you need are some pins or clips for securing it in place. If you’d like something more decorative but still simple enough not to require much time or effort—and have access to clips—try clipping half way down one side of each pigtail before pinning back behinds each ear (see image).
The French Fishtail Braid.
This hairstyle is easy to achieve, and it looks like you spent a long time on your hair. All you need to do is tie your hair into a ponytail, then braid the entire length of it.
When you reach the end of the braid, cross it over itself and pull it under the rest of your hair.
Low Messy Side Bun With Wispy Texture.
Start by parting the hair on either side of your face and brushing it back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck.
Secure with a hair elastic, then release some of the hair from the elastic to create an airy, wispy texture at the back of your head.
Tuck in any flyaways as needed with bobby pins or small clips (if you use clips, keep them hidden under your bun).
Use a rat tail comb to sweep up any loose pieces and create another layer on top so it looks like you have more than one bun here—you’ll now have two!
Women with long, straight, and thin hair will be able to wear these hairstyles. These styles are easy to do at home and look great in professional environments.
They’re also perfect for women with a busy lifestyle because they don’t take a lot of time or effort.
