The full range of updos and downdos from the simplest to the fanciest ones are at your disposal. To pair your lengthy locks with bangs or not is a matter of your preference. Commonly, bangs make you look younger. They can bring out your eyes, render your appearance a mysterious look or correct your face shape if needed. Here are 20 gorgeous looks with long hair and bangs you can draw inspiration from.

What Kind Of Bangs To Pair Long Hairstyles With?

Styling Suggestions For Long Hair With Bangs

Loose free-flowing styles. It’s an amazing feeling when a light breeze is gently caressing your tresses, occasionally throwing a few locks on a side of your face or sweeps all of them to one shoulder. This season you can rock anything from scrunch-and-go looks to beach waves.
Half up half down styles. At those times when your hair is getting too annoying, falling on your face, the easiest way to tame it is to braid the top tresses, leaving the back hanging freely. Below there are some creative on-trend suggestions.
Updos. Here we think of all kinds of buns and knots, first of all. These days they are not perfect, messy and rather loose than tight.

20 Elegant Hairstyles for Any Formal Occasion

No matter how spontaneous and disheveled you prefer to look in day-to-day life, it’s impossible to avoid occasions when you need to be elegant. Elegant updos and downdos are required for different types of formal events and in office settings. Even if these are rare opportunities in your life, we bet you won’t mind looking elegant once in a while simply for a change. Some of us think that elegant styles can add you years or mistakenly associate them with something strict or restricting like a white shirt and a business jacket. These are just misconceptions. Viewing the following gallery, you are going to see how versatile and inspiring elegant ‘dos can be. So, why not to give them a try?

Where are The Frontiers of Elegance in Hairstyles?

Why we consider one hairstyle elegant, while another is referred to as casual? There are certain signs which help to recognize an elegant ‘do. Both pulled up and hair down hairstyles can be elegant. Therefore, in case you give your preference only to one type or another, you can create a concept of your own super-flattering elegant hairstyle.

Elegant updos. Updos are a more common type of elegant ‘dos. They are a great match for floor-length décolleté gowns or dresses with interesting back cuts. Pulled up styles allow to show off stylish accessories, like eye-catching earrings and chic necklaces which otherwise could be lost under your mane. Elegant updos are neat and accurate: every lock is settled carefully even if it’s an intricate fancy design.
Elegant downdos. If you do not feel like pulling your hair up, you can easily do with a free-flowing style that looks pretty elegant. Such hairstyles are commonly wavy with hair swept back, off the face or to one side. The waves are smooth, shiny, polished and sprayed to hold together.
Elegant half up half down styles. These often feature a bouffant and free flowing curl. Bangs are also possible but they are supposed to be neat and preferably styled to a side. Under the influence of current tendencies, contemporary elegant hairstyles may acquire a very light messy touch. How does it look? See below…

#1: Messy, Tucked Chignon

Give the classic chignon hairstyle a modern messy twist and make it extra voluminous. Spritz your hair with texturizing spray before twisting it into a bun. Tuck the ends at the nape of the neck and tug at the bun until you have the fullness and volume you desire.

50 Stunning Shades of Strawberry Blonde Hair Color

Strawberry blonde is a trendy hair color. It’s a famous warm reddish blonde hue that looks refined and pretty fancy in some of its variations. Most blondes and redheads have tried it and appreciated its benefits. Among celebrities the most popular strawberry blondes are Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Isla Fisher, Cynthia Nixon, Sienna Miller… These are true strawberry blonde icons, and we often can’t resist copying their stunning looks at least partially. However, we, girls, don’t feel like looking the same for too long. That’s why we experiment with hair colors so often. We’ve looked around for 50 different pictures with shades of strawberry blonde. Some of them are rather into the beige and neutral tone with a very delicate pinkish tint, others incline to warm reddish shades. There are also darker and lighter versions, more intense and softer ones. We bet you’ll find here something you really like.

Who Can Try Strawberry Blonde?

Anyone who likes it, you may suggest. Actually, yes, but it’s not going to be flattering to everyone. First of all, let’s try to sort out the hues. The strawberry is not ginger, auburn or chestnut… Basically, it’s a blonde tone but with a warm golden-reddish tint. It occurs naturally very rarely and goes in combination with pale skin and freckles.
Today with professional hair dyes and talented colorists we can achieve practically every color we want. Classic strawberry tone is flattering for girls and women with fair warm-toned skin. However, it’s also possible to attain the strawberry hues that are neutral and even a bit cool, tending to beige tones. That’s why if your natural hair color is dishwater blonde, you can resort to beige strawberry shade and look great.
If you have more intense natural overall coloring (i.e. skin that tans well, light or medium brown hair and dark or bright eyes), you may try darker versions of strawberry blonde. With lighter hues you may look a kind of “washed out”.

Variations of Strawberry Blonde Hair Color

Not all of the following are exactly strawberry blonde tones. But they are all close to it and are listed here so that you could select your ideal shade, trendy in 2016.
