Long hair never goes out of style but it can also be the hardest to maintain. Fear not—we have the crucial products you need to keep your mane thick and glossy, plus plenty of style inspiration to take you beyond blowouts and ponytails.

Hang Loose

A good round brush can take your hair from limp and lifeless to va-va-volume. For the sleekest strands possible, use a shampoo and conditioner that hydrates without any heaviness. Add a dime-size amount of hair oil from mid-lengths to ends for extra shine.

Slicked Back

Warning: This style will turn heads. The trick to nailing it is all in the proportions—the top half of your hair should look wet, and the bottom half dry. Straighten hair first, then comb in a thick hair paste from forehead to mid-lengths. Finish with hairspray.

Fishtail Pony

Dress up your usual sporty pony by adding a fishtail braid. Keep any spikey bits from popping out of your plait by applying a smoothing serum to strands before getting started. This is the perfect choice if you don’t have too many layers.
