Because long hair never really goes out of fashion, celebrities have been sporting extra-long Rapunzel lengths that don’t disappoint.

And we’re talking waist length tresses or even ankle length in some cases. With a shiny sleek finish, celebs are wearing the trend poker straight to accentuate their lengths.

Top Tips on how to Wear Long Hair

Lengthy extensions are pricey—but natural waist-length hair would take a lifetime to grow, so extensions are essential. In the real, non-celebrity world extensions below the hip are going to be impossible to manage so here’s our top tips on how to make the trend wearable.

  1. Start with the thickness and finish of the hair extensions. Don’t go over the top with thickness as it will be too hard to manage. Try 22 inch or 24 inch hair extensions.
  2. The finish; ensure you get a good cut and style, add layers to ensure the blend and cut is modern. Always see a professional hair extensionist.
  3. Keep it really high shiny and glossy looking. It should be really glossy, really poker straight hair with high shine. Invest in products that make your mane ultra-luxe looking.
  4. If you don’t want permanent extensions and want to try the trend then opt for clip-in extensions that can be clipped in and out. For that special occasion you can take them to your stylist for a show stopping style. If you want an extra long clip-in option, try our 22″ Double Hair Set in a huge selection of shades.
  5. When you’re bored of the long hair trend, no problem. Switch up your lengths by getting your new locks cut and blended with your stylist.

Whilst the Kardashian klan may have been on the trend early, first stepping out at fashion week sporting the trend in the Balenciaga front row (as you do), iconic celebs like Cher and Naomi Campbell have been wearing long lengths for decades!

But it takes more than our favourite Kardashians to make a trend. We’ve also spotted some major Hollywood royalty road testing the look…
