I'll admit it: When it comes to my hairstyle lust list, I'm incredibly fickle. Despite only recently poring over all of the stylish short hairstyles that A-listers and the fashion set have been stepping out in, I can't help but notice that long hair is very much still a favourite hairstyle amongst celebrities and fashion girls. And I'm into into it just as much. Maybe it's because my hair is at that awkward in-between length (it's no longer a lob but its still too short to twist into a decent topknot), but growing my hair long is beginning to look like a seriously appealing prospect to me. Especially when there's an absolute abundance of long hair inspiration all over my Instagram feed right now.
From beach waves and braids to ponytails and half-up, half-down 'dos, there's no denying that long hair is seriously versatile. Whether you wear it down to embrace your inner Rapunzel or twist it up during a heatwave, let's face it—long hair always looks stylish. Tempted to embrace longer locks?
