The 8 Best Long Haircuts for Every Type of Texture

Wavy Shag

Beyonce demonstrates how to create a lengthy shag with properly placed layers. Request a chin-length layered cut for thick, wavy, or curly hair.

Voluminous Afro

Be Esperanza Spalding and give your natural hair sky-high voume. Spalding styles her afro by adding shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, and tea tree oil.

Blunt Bangs

Naomi Campbell's blunt bangs lend style to her straight hair. She makes a good case for long hair with bangs.

Curly Layers

Natural curls or waves can be shaped with strategically placed layers. Thin out your curls and maintain them the same length to emulate Camila Alves.

Glossy Texture

Awkwafina's jet-black mane is gorgeous. Add gritty texture and shine with R+Co Rockaway Salt Spray ($26) and Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil ($21) for It-girl chic.

Brushed-Out Waves

To highlight length in textured hair like Solange's, apply small layers at the ends. For an avant-garde look, add volume to the bottom of the hair. Red eye makeup is optional but recommended.

Choppy Layers

Kim Kardashian's choppy layers give straight hair body. "Removing weight from the interior is often a good way to help maintain long hair," Mohapi states.

Center-Parted Curls

Maintain hydrated hair by frequent washing, conditioning, and deep conditioning for well-defined curls like Serayah McNeill's.
