No matter what type of hair you have, be it curly or straight, if your hair is long then there are hair styles to suit you.
Hair styles for long hair do not work that well if the hair is fine, or if the face is narrow and long in shape. But for hair that has a nice medium to thick texture, then there is plenty that can be done.
Long hair can take some preparation, due to the amount of hair on the head. If you are pushed for time, then a classic style such as a pony tail or multiple pony tails can be created quickly.
If you are feeling more adventurous and are planning a trip to the hair salon, two styles which are good for those with long hair are the Long Undercut and the Long Graduated Cut.
The Long Undercut is similar to a shoulder length 'bob' style hair cut. The hair cut begins at the bottom and works it way to the top. This makes each individual layer slightly longer than the layer beneath it. What this does is to give the hair a heavier look at the ends with a slight under curve. If the hair is curly to begin with, then the under curl at the ends will be more prominent.
The Long Graduated Cut starts from bottom to top. Each individual layer gets shorter as it works its way up and ends by blending into the top. If the hair is curly or wavy to begin with, then this hair style works well. Also, this style works better on medium to thick hair but not so well on fine hair.
Having long hair gives the person many choices of hairstyle. And with the right hairstylist working his or her magic, then the options for different hairstyles are only limited by the imagination of the stylist.

Clip-in hair extensions are the best and most practical alternative for many women. They are affordable, have a quick and simple application and removal process, and can be changed frequently to match one's mood or style. With most things that make our lives easier, there are some drawbacks. Clip-in hair extensions can cause damage to your natural hair, which in some cases is permanent. This is bad news for people who are using clip-in hair extensions to cover up areas of hair loss since it can exacerbate the problem.
Track Alopecia, another name for permanent hair loss, is a gradual process. When hair is pulled tightly over a long period of time, follicles become damaged. In some cases, clip-in hair extensions are worn too tightly, for too long, or are not adjusted properly. Sometimes they are too heavy, and as the natural hair grows, they pull on the hair follicle causing damage.
At first, the hair loss is not noticeable to most people because the clip-in extensions cover most of the damage and a small amount of hair loss occurs naturally. Over time, the condition worsens and more and more hair begins to fall out. Every day the maintenance and care like brushing, cleansing, curling and styling lead to more damage and an increased loss. Eventually large clumps of are found to be missing and bald spots become noticeable. This is a major problem with clip in extensions - they simply are not the best option for most people.
In the worst cases of Track Alopecia, scarring occurs. In areas where follicles have been severely damaged and permanent hair loss has occurred, scar tissue replaces the follicles. Scarring looks patchy and is usually associated with itching, irritation, and pain. This condition is harder to treat and harder to cover up. If caught in time, damage may not be permanent. Unfortunately, many clip-in hair extensions are sold retail directly to the consumer who are not warned or given proper tips about how to wear them to avoid hair loss.
