1. Cute hairstyles for girls with long hair
While long and luscious hair can make you look like a Goddess, there is a flip-side to it too. We’re talking about the tedious task of washing and styling long mane. Wash-days are dreadful and styling tools can leave you with a tired arm. We get the struggle, ladies! But here’s good news... We’ve compiled some super cute hairstyles for girls with long hair that are easy-peasy to achieve.
- Twisted bun
A twisted bun is the comfiest haircut for all those with long hair, especially in summers when you don’t want your hair to stick to your sweaty neck and ruin its texture. To start with, de-tangle your hair and part down the middle, so you are left with two equal divisions. Holding each section in each of your hands, tie them into a single shoelace knot at the back of your head. Starting from the tail of hair hanging on your right, twist it till you reach the end. Next, roll this twisted section into a circular bun around the knot and secure it with bobby pins. Repeat the same with your left section of hair, and voila! Finish off this cute hairstyle with the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray that is sure to hold your style in place.
- Rose bun
Unique and intricate, a rose bun is one hairstyle that screams chic and feminine. Before styling, add some large, loose curls to amp up your look. Start by parting the top half of your hair and secure it with an elastic. Now, take this section and create one long braid. Next, wrap the braid in a coil and continue wrapping until it turns into a bun. Lastly, secure it with enough bobby pins for your rose bun to stay in place. This is a super cute hairstyle for long hair.
- Space buns
The easiest and cutest hairstyle that’ll instantly take you back to school - space buns. The best alternative to a regular updo, space buns is one hairstyle that’s comfy, easy and compliments casual outfits extremely well. To begin with, start by parting your hair in the middle. Next, make two pigtails on each side and secure with elastic bands. Twist your first pigtail into a rope and secure it with a bobby pin. Repeat the same with your second pigtail and done! Accentuate your front bangs by straightening them to give it a polished effect. And voila! You're ready with a cute hairstyle in less than 10 minutes.
- Braided Halo
Another hairstyle for long hair is a halo headband. No, you do not need to get a headband or even a halo. Your hair would do. All you have to do is pick up a section of your hair from one side, preferably a part that you would pick to braid otherwise, and braid it. Then take this bunch of braided strands to the opposite side and fix with a pin. Now do the same with a set of strands on the other side and bring it over to the other end. Only, pin this set of strands behind the first one. Voila! You have a headband with a Halo, perfect for that sunny day out, or even those wintery sunny days.

FAQs on Cute Hairstyles for Girls
Q. Do bangs make you look younger?
A. You’ll be happy to know that bangs or fringes can actually make you look younger. As bangs fall on your forehead, they tend to cover the fine lines and wrinkles and give you a cuter, more youthful look.
Q. Are bangs in trend in 2020?
A. Yes. You can opt for curtain bangs, side bangs or the regular fringe if you want to switch up your hair game this year. It is always a good idea to opt for a statement haircut rather than going for the usual choppy layers or a simple trim.
Q. What hairstyle is best for thin hair?
A. If you have really thin hair, then it's best to opt for hairstyles and haircuts that will give the illusion of voluminous locks. A pixie cut, wavy lob, angled bob, bumped-up ponytail or wispy front layers will make your hair look bigger and thicker than they actually are.
