Long Hairstyles from Spring 2012 Runways

Cushnie et Ochs slicked back hair

Looking for some hot trendy long for ? In a nutshell, there are romantic braids, edgy wet look hair and graceful retro accessories. Ready for the round up?

Slicked-back hair

AKA wet look hair brings a chic yet easy elegance. Inspired with Bond girls (with long hairstyles which rules out Halle Berry) walking on the beach with damp hair pulled back, it creates a perfect background for bold spring 2012 makeup and ladylike clothing. Use gel to hold the straight hair for a slick look (Cushnie et Ochs) or argan oil to saturate the curly strands for a tousled look. Would you experiment with a center part too? Image credit

Braided updos

Summer 2012 means no holiday for long hairstyles and braids! This time, having a bit of an edge is as chic as ever. The trendiest braids of the season are swooped around the head to expose your neck seductively. They’re also a bit deconstructed and messy, looking as if they put no effort into their styling. Add a sweet modern twist on traditional romantic updo (as seen in Valentino) leaving some strands hanging out loose. Image credit

Ponytails and pony-buns

Men’s favourite hairstyle in various spring 2012 interpretations. From the versatile horsetail perfect for fashionable dominatrices, to tucked under or looped pony (as seen in Yigal Azrouël) for every woman running late, this trend will definitely find many urban followers. Image credit

Hair accessories

Nothing can adorn long hairstyles better than elegant hair accessories. There were plenty of them: headbands bringing back retro style (as seen in Anna Sui) were all the rage. There were also mermaid pearl hair pins at Chanel taking a cue from the trendy maritime fashion, sophisticated feathers at Jason Wu, and elegant gold barrettes at Yves Saint Laurent. Image credit
