Holiday Hairstyles: 5 Ways to Wear Long Hair

You've got the dress, you've got the shoes, now all you need is a fabulous hairstyle to get you holiday-party ready. Here are 5 ideas inspired by celebrities and their long locks (or possibly, extensions!)

1. Brittany Snow
goes for a side swept look and sleek straight strands.

2. Eva Mendes gives her long lustrous hair a little bounce with gentle curls.

3. Jennifer Love Hewitt opts for high shine and soft spirals.

4. Katy Perry gives a nod to the past with her Old Hollywood-inspired coif.

5. Taylor Swift emphasizes her bold bangs by keeping the rest of her hair simple and chic.
Taylor's bangs make her look more mature/glam... From her eyes up she looks a little like Alicia Keys now as well.

A good haircut goes a long way!

I like Katy Perry's the most; Taylor is super cute but the hair cut with the heavy makeup is taking her to the 'Uncanny Valley'. Hair looks so...processed these days, like it's going to gain sentience and hop off your head since it's had so much work done to it.

Not sure why my comment this morning didn't post... Long hair with natural waves and curls is also beautiful! (

i have hair that sits on my shoulders and i was always jealous of people who could grow theirs out to lengths pictured above. then i discovered clip in human hair extensions. i was skeptical at first but i pretty much pulled off that katy perry look the last time i had them in.

I love Katy Perry's style. Very vintage, and she has that Marilyn Monroe eyebrows. :-)

I love Brittney Snow's and especially Katy Perry's looks. Both styles are feminine and sexy, while Britney's is a bit more modern... Still Katy's Old Hollywood glam is gorgeous. I have to agree that I didn't like Taylor Swift's hairstyle or makeup. It was as if she was trying to look like someone she isn't, plus the color is a little yellow, and her hair looks unhealthy (dry and processed) when it should look healthy and lush like Katy's!
