Celeb Style: Long Hair Makeovers for Fall – No Cutting Required

Five no-cut, celeb-inspired new looks for long hair

The celebs may be snipping away (ahem … Posh, Rihanna and Katie Holmes) , but a short crop is not in my future. A major haircut (anything shorter than below the collarbone) makes me feel so-not-sexy. From the manes reigning around every mall, I’d say I’m not alone. There are just so many times you can say, “it’ll grow out, right?” Long hair truly is still going to be your best bet for low-maintenance and versatility. Snip ends just enough to trim splits and keep the shape polished. This fall try these 5 scissor-free hair updates.

Don’t nip, just tuck to create a short look. First prep hair with a shine and body gel-cream like Fekkai Coiff Control Ironless Straightening Balm ($25, sephora.com) before doing your usual blowout. Use hot rollers next if you want to add subtle texture. Tuck the ends under in sections and secure them with bobby pins like Rosario Dawson’s fake-out at the Seven Pounds premiere (pictured above), or do a Michelle Obama shortie tuck-up like her stylist Johnny Wright often does. Just secure the ends loosely with an elastic and pin under to hide the tail.

  1. I contemplate cutting my long hair, but then I remember how it graces my waist and I change my mind. Long hair just seems so much sexier. Thanks for the tips on how to spice it up!

  2. I like these since there’s no cutting involved! I love my long hair and every time I’ve decided to try a shorter do I’ve always ended up regretting it. These’ll be so much fun!!

  3. Yay articles in favour of long hair!

    Not that everybody needs long hair, but cutting hair short isn’t for everybody and it’s nice to have that fact acknowledged in print :)
