Evenings have a charm of their own. As the sun settles over a hectic day, it's time to unwind, in a party, or in a prom, or in a very personal engagement. It's time to let imaginations run riot over the right dress, the right hairstyle, and the right accessories to steal the show. Your long, beautifully flowing hair can add a ravishing touch to your glam, and make you grab the entire focus in the evening turnout. All that your hair needs besides the usual care and nourishment is a head-turning hairstyling for that captivating aura. And, you can simply weave wonders with your long hair.
The first thing about hairstyling is marking your time. You may want glorious long tresses, but you'd definitely not want to be late for that appointment. So, keep some time at your disposal. You must also have your long hair washed clean and moisturized to look perfectly healthy.
Multiple ponytails can be quite interesting to start with. You need to get some brush, elastic bands, hair shine or hair spray. Divide your hair in the crown area into three parts and place them in three separate ponytails, with most of your hair left loose and flowing on the neck. Make sure you smoothen the frizz for a slicker look. If you want, you can diversify and put the three ponytails into one big ponytail and add some ribbon. For the sporty look, you can try to create as many ponytails as you like using multi-colored bands.
There can be other fascinating styles with the ponytail. Just pulling the hair into a low ponytail on the nape of the neck is one of the most beautiful ways of wearing long hair that exists. You can also try pulling the top layer of hair into a ponytail at the back of the head and leaving the rest loose. This style 'cuts the cheeks' of round face shapes and make them look all the more lovely.
Then there are the fabulous braids to give you the most electrifying, yet simple, hairstyles. Divide your hair into multiple strands and braid each one thinly, making sure you tie it up with an all-black elastic band for a more formal look or multi-colored bands for the more carefree look. You can use jeweled barrettes, or the butterfly designed ones for a touch of sophistication to your long evening hairstyle. Pin your hair on the side or get two sides of your hair and then pin them down in the middle of the crown using the barrettes. Let most of your hair flow at your back, and do not forget to brush them properly for that lustrous, shiny look.
Placing your hair on a high ponytail, just resting over the middle of the crown, can give you a regal look, and this works well for casual or very formal events in the evening. The trick is in the type of elastic used. You can even put your hair in ponytails and leave some curled strands on both sides to create a romantic look.
Another lovely and elegant way of wearing long hair for the evening is the classic bun style, pulled up onto the head and twisted around, and then pinned in place. You can also go for the braided bun, where the hair is braided and the braid is then coiled into a bun. There are two main styles in this category, the rounded bun with the start of the braid resting against the back of the head and wrapping the rest of the braid around it and placing the end under, or the flat coil bun starting with the end of the braid and coiling it around itself, holding it flat all the way. Just avoid making them heavy, and you're ready for the evening extravaganza.
