This season, hair has been all about choppy bangs, bobs, buzz and pixie cuts that put long gorgeous manes to shame. Celebs like Taylor Swift began to chop it all off for major red carpet appearances in favour of short, edgy cuts that were no match for summer sweat. And while Get The Look has offered an assortment of celebrity hair inspo for short 'dos, what about those who wouldn't dare trade their long, luscious locks in for anything?
Take L'Oreal muse Blake Lively for example, who left her signature blonde hair long and wavy this season, showing off everything from enviable beach-y waves to '80s-inspired voluminous curls. Meanwhile, Canada's own Coco Rocha grew out her signature pixie cut in favour of sleek, long locks that have proven to be more versatile than ever!
Since debuting her new 'do, the new mother has shown off multiple looks that are inspiring us to embrace long hair (and a little bit of sweat!) for summer 2016! Need a little inspo? We're giving you 4 hairstyles worn by Coco Rocha that are perfect for long hair!
While the high ponytail isn't necessarily a new idea, it's one trend that long haired beauties should consider adopting this summer. It's a versatile look that you can throw together when you're short on time, or spend hours perfecting when you're heading out for an elegant night. Coco Rocha opted for a more modern version of the look, turning her ponytail into a sleek, pulled back hairstyle fit for the future.
To get this look, start by spraying your hair with oil to ensure a smooth finish. Using a brush, pull your hair back into a high ponytail that sits somewhere on the top of your head. Use hairspray as you go to ensure sleek, ponytail perfection at the roots. Next, spray the hair of the ponytail with a heat protective spray, then run a flat iron through the hair for an ultra sophisticated look. Take a small piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it around the base, covering the elastic. Secure with bobby pins and finish off with a shine-finish hairspray.
Braids have quickly become the cool-girl hairstyle of the summer, so why not embrace your long hair and get creative with it. Whether it's a fishtail braid, crown braid, or boxer braids, long hair was meant for this look. Coco Rocha embraced the trend with two braids that sat along the back of her head – or in other words, boxer braids – a trend that has blown up in the beauty world this season.
To get the look, start by parting your hair down the middle into two sections. Starting on one side first, take a small section of hair from the top of your head and braid all the way down to the nape of your neck, collecting strands of hair as you go. Secure with an elastic and repeat on the other side of your head.
The best part about having long hair? Beach waves, of course! Seen recently on celebs like Blake Lively, Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss , and now, Coco Rocha, long beach-y waves are the key to cool-girl summer style. Rock this easy-going 'do to the beach, pool party, or for a night out this summer! Coco Rocha opted for a more subdued version of the look, wearing subtle waves that gave her a more laidback overall look.
To get her look, simply spray matt & messy product throughout damp hair then scrunch the hair until you achieve your desired look. For an even easier way to adopt the trend, braid your hair before bed, sleep on it, then remove the braids in the morning and you'll have perfect, natural beach waves!
For the ultimate lazy-girl summer hairstyle, take note from Coco Rocha and wear your hair in a low, I-don't-care-style-ponytail. The new mother showed off a loose pony that sat low at the back of her neck, while the rest of her hair was loosely structured at the top, and around the sides of her face.
To get this look, simply part your hair to your liking, then spray L'Oreal's matt & messy spray to add texture. Pull your hair gently back into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, and secure with an elastic. Release a few strands of hair around your face to create a tousled, easy-going appeal.
