There's something super fun about rocking long hair. Although I loved my short cut when I had it, throwing in some long extensions really makes me feel like I can conquer the world. Though my natural hair isn't super long, having long extensions gives me the same feeling. For anyone willing to rock long hair, you know that there aren't too many hairstyles available. That's why keeping a few hairstyles for people with long hair on standby is a way to ensure that you're always being as stylish as possible.
When I do choose to wear my long extensions, I try to find styles and textures that can be worn in multiple ways. Although I love to wear my hair down, depending on the outfit I wear or the activity that I'm doing, it won't always work the best. YouTube has really become my best friend and it's allowed me to change up my look even when I have my extensions in. Between braids and updos, I've found ways to keep my longer styles in tact and versatile.
