The Ultimate Long Hair Inspo For Every Texture

Social distancing provides the ideal situation for growing out your strands.

Between salon closures and state health guidelines, many people are opting to push back their trims and go for the grow. Not a bad idea. Contemplating taking your tresses to greater lengths? Allow us to help you find a little inspiration. Of course, not all cuts are created equal. Your personal long hair goals ultimately depend on your hair health, texture, and thickness.

That’s why we rounded up the ultimate long hair inspiration for tresses of every texture, from super straight to tightly coiled. Read on for your next waist-grazing ‘do.

Straight

If you’ve got straight strands, hip-hugging mermaid hair is definitely in your future. Kacey Musgraves dark brunette tresses are the ultimate long, straight ‘do. Add a retro fringe and you’re ready to take on the grow-out process.

Wavy

Real waves can be a lot of work, but the payoff is totally worth it. Especially when you can rock ultra-long locks like Selena Gomez. We’re always in awe of her chestnut tresses. This waist-grazing aesthetic is ideal for wavy hair types.

Wavy-to-Curly

If your wavy strands err a little more on the curly side, a deep-side part is the way to go. Zendaya’s long mane looks amazing in this volume-enhancing style. We’re loving her subtle layers.
