Waterfall braids

Partner cascading waves with a loose braid to create a gorgeous layered long hairstyle. Thanks to your hair’s layers, this modern twist on a bohemian classic will create plenty of fullness and body. Half up hair is totally on trend and completely achievable at home. Use the ghd curve® soft curl tong and accompany your braids with soft romantic curls to perfect the look. What’s more, the tri-zone® technology within the styler helps keep your hairdo locked in all day and night.

Tip: If you want a textured and tousled look to complement your braid, follow our simple step-by-step guide.

Loose curls

Chilled out and fabulously undone, this is a stunning layered hairstyle for long hair. Achieve the glamour of curls and the effortless cool of loose layered locks all at once. This style will naturally give your hair body and texture. For defined curls that stay in place use the ghd curve® creative curl wand. Create twirls in different directions for a harmoniously tousled look.

Tip: Prep your hair with ghd curl hold spray to help you craft defined and long-lasting curls.  

Messy straight

Add a new dimension to your straight hair with this layered long hairstyle. Embrace the occasional kinks and curves of an undone straight style and get messy straight hair with the help of your layers. Achieve fullness and body quickly and easily with the help of the ghd air® hairdryer. Style your look as you dry and use the ghd air® diffuser to create soft natural kinks. Finish with ghd final fix hairspray spritzed generously into your roots to add volume.

Tousled braids

Add a twist to your layers with a laidback braid. Blend two plaits together to create one achievable style that embraces a mussed up vibe. A thick full braid combined with a half halo plait will pull in those shorter layers and – with some loose weaving – give you a relaxed long layered hairstyle. Dial up the volume to create movement and soft waves before braiding with the ghd curve® classic wave wand.

Layered ponytail

Combine two ponytails to transform your look and create a stunning everyday updo. Include bouncing curls in your pony to create a style that’s bursting with volume and attitude. Use the ghd curve® classic curl tong to create tumbling curls that’ll stay bouncy long after you’ve finished styling.

Tip: Prep your damp hair with ghd curl hold spray to reinforce your curls.

Sleek buns, luxurious waves and messy twists – medium-length hairstyles offer stacks of versatility. Amp up your shoulder-grazing locks with these easy everyday looks and never want for midi inspiration again.
