Straight hair doesn’t have to be boring nor a little limiting. With the right style and haircut, you’ll shine.
I’ve got long and straight hair, and most of my day, it’s tied up on a bun or ponytail. When I go out, especially at night, I go for the typical behind the shoulders or in front of the shoulders hairstyle. Can’t do much more than that, right?
Not really! If you’re tired of the same haircut or hairstyle and hit a plateau on styles for straight hair, we’ve rounded up the coolest hairstyles for straight hair.

Mohawk Braid Top Knot
Top knots are my go-to hairstyle when I’m in a rush. But this top knot has a special tweak — the mohawk braid style with a messy bun. This hairstyle is perfect if you are in the mood for an intricate style but want to leave some hair down.

This up-style is the perfect hairstyle for brides, bridesmaids, or if you have a chic social event to attend. It’s a classic and romantic hairstyle, and even if it looks complicated, the hairstylist Stephanie makes it easier for us.
