One of the trendiest haircuts for women is still the long layered haircut, this haircut brings a lot of movement to the hair, leaving it in a light way that’s so beautiful. As it’s a long haircut that leaves the hair lighter, it’s great for those who have straight hair and love to curl their hair or do messy hair.
But after all, what is a layered haircut? The layered haircut can be used on both short and long hair, it means that different layers of your hair can have slightly different lengths, and it’s this difference that gives movement and lightness to the hair.
With her hair loved by so many people around the world, Gisele Bündchen also has a long layered haircut. How many hairdressers haven’t heard “I want Gisele’s hair!”?
Gisele is known for this style of hair with light waves, the hair is super requested to hairdressers everywhere and, as I mentioned, this layered haircut helps to lighten the hair to create the famous Gisele’s waves.
Actress Blake Lively is also a fan of the long layered haircut, as are many other women around the world. This cut creates face-framing layers that are also great to add volume to the hair. It’s also a very democratic cut, because it can also be great for curly hair.
Long haircuts with bangs
Long haircuts with bangs can also be super trendy and don’t have to be reserved for the youngest, as you can see in the haircut photos below even Angelina Jolie and Carla Bruni have gone through phases of long hair with bangs. If you want to go for a trendy style, you can try curtain bangs with your long hair.
Bangs are great for a youthful long haircut for women, but it doesn’t just have to be worn only by teenagers and twentysomethings!
Angelina Jolie also adopted bangs for the character Elise in the movie “The Tourist”, showing that long hair with bangs can also look very elegant for different ages.

Curtain bangs for long haircuts
Long hair with curtain bangs is a captivating style choice that adds a touch of sophistication and femininity. Curtain bangs are characterized by light and subtle strands framing the face, creating a delicate and open effect.
This haircut blends seamlessly with long locks, providing a bohemian and modern appearance. The curtain bangs are versatile, adapting to various face shapes and personal styles.
They can be worn straight or slightly layered for a softer look. This haircut not only adds a touch of elegance but also a sense of lightness and movement, creating harmony between length and sophisticated details.
Haircuts for long straight hair and blunt ends
One of the most classic long haircuts: the long straight haircut with blunt ends has been used for many years and suits anyone looking for a more classical haircut. This haircut is done with blunt ends, so there’s no difference in the length of the hair layers, they are all the same.
This long haircut requires maintenance so that the ends always remain as blunt ends, with all the hair at the same length, so keep an eye on it so you don’t end up with some ends longer than others over time.
