Long Hairstyles from Spring 2012 Runways

Cushnie et Ochs slicked back hair

Looking for some hot trendy long for spring summer 2012? 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 ) 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
