Which long hairstyle gets your vote?

When you're oh so patiently growing your hair long, you need all the motivation you can get. So, allow us to introduce two especially gorgeous looks: one sleek, one tousled. The question is, which one will you try on your own (soon-to-be) Rapunzel tresses?


Sleek, glossy hair is always a good look. It's simple, minimalist and goes with any attire, making it easy to dress up or down as needed.

1/ How to style it

To polish up your hair, spray it with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, then straighten it with a flat iron.

When you're done, add shine and banish flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to complete the look.


Thanks to people like Blake Lively, deliberately disheveled hair has been trending for a while now and shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon. This is great news for all of us because it means messy bed head hair is a totally viable outside world option!

2/ How to style it

Spray dry or damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, then blow-dry it in large twisted sections. If time permits, twist and pin your locks into a loose bun to air dry instead.

Once dried, shake your fingers through it and scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends to add more texture.

What do you think? Which long hair look gets your vote?
