Best long hairstyles for this year – classy warm colours
Most of the fashion houses we’ve seen used models with light brown or brunette hair and there were no particular colour surprises. That’s good because the continuing trend for warm russet-reds and caramel shades is a very flattering look that suits most women and deserves a ‘long-run’!
I do hear that golden-blonde is going to be huge for spring, according to my contact at L’Oreal! And this seems to confirm that the ash-blonde shades that keep cropping up in the AW fashion events, are still not catching the eye of the celebs (and their hairstylists) we love to copy!
Basket-weaving in the top section of half-up styles looks absolutely fabulous on highlighted hair or hair of an all-over colour. We love the latticed, basket-weave look for top layers on elegant upstyles and trendy half-ups and will be promoting it like mad as one of the best long hairstyles of this year! It’s a really chic and unique look!
Under-layer highlighting on buns and hair-knots
And the classic French Twist is also featured amongst the top five best long hairstyles, for its cool, understated glamour and with some very attractive, contemporary touches.
One of the new ways of highlighting long hair is to add the colour in the underneath layers from root to tip, so it creates a lovely now-you-see-it – now-you-don’t colour scheme. Then when you put your hair up into a hair-knot, bun or French Roll chignon, you create a fabulous, new colour pattern!
Half-up styles and daring colour combos
The half-up half-down look is one of the best long hairstyles because it is all-new and ready to dazzle with new styling twists and daring colour combinations! Ombré half-ups look great because of the patterns they make, now imagine what you can create with a dual-ombré half-up style!
The dual-ombré combines three bands of colour which can be the subtle sombré graduation or just three harmonising or contrasting colours!
I believe that one of the most popular new upstyles for long hair in this year will be the retro-1960’s look created with barrel-roll curls lightly back-combed and then pinned in place around the crown.
It’s a super-cool and chic look, that stays in place well and suits all ages, too. And as the latest fringes are forward-combed and straight-across – that completes the authentic ‘60’s style to a ‘T’!

Elle Fanning Long Straight Hairstyle
Elle Fanning, an actress who is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning, joins the Twilight craze at the opening night of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” in Los Angeles, California. Her blond hair is iron ramrod straight and extends to the middle of her back without a spiral in sight. She has a few subtle, long layers at the neck.
Elle is wearing a champagne-colored creation that has a tank top and a haute couture skirt with a folded hem and dangling wide ribbons of fabric. Apparently, she is not too worried about running from vampires; she has on tall platform sandals with fuchsia accents.
Zippy zig-zag waves & silver-ash-blonde graduated balayage-ombré
Here’s the opposite trend to the soft shades in the previous hairstyle! It’s a high-fashion style and color intended to look artificial with sharply angled waves ending in straightened, spiky tips. There’s extreme contrast between the neutral brown top and silvery white tips, with a softening band of gold-blonde in between!
Long sleek ombre hair style
Dakota Fanning long swept bangs
Everyone has to grow up sometime! It looks like the little girl that first stole our hearts with her precocious acting in films and television is not a little girl anymore. Leaving her adorable crown of blond curls in her childhood, Dakota embraces her new maturity by brandishing a silky head of dark chocolate straight hair with the subtlest of brunette highlights in the under layers.
Since brown and turquoise are complimentary colors; her hair goes great with her dress and her baby blues. Oh, our mistake! Not baby blues… “Almost a grown up” lady blues is more like it!
It’s not good to judge a book by its cover. Australian model Miranda Kerr may look like just another pretty face, but she has the brains to go along with her beauty.
Captured here at a book launch event, Miranda has a casual jagged part down the center of her long straight hair. Miranda’s hair is deep and dark at the root which mellows out first to auburn then to a tawny color at the tips. Even if she buries her face deep inside of a novel, we can still enjoy her lovely style of hair. Way to go, Miranda!
