When I was younger, I was obsessed with having long hair. There was always something so interesting about seeing the things women did with their longer locks that I can't do with my shorter ones. I always get upset when I see my sister, who has much longer and thicker hair than I do, opt out of the many styles for longer hair because she claims they're "too difficult." With many tutorials for easy hairstyles for long hair out now though, her finding the perfect style to suit her needs shouldn't cause many issues anymore.
From natural or textured hair to thick or curly hair, YouTube has opened up so many doors for women with longer hair to find ways to create unique and stylish hairdos. Even if your hair's length comes from extensions, because you haven't decided if permanent longer hair is for you, there are plenty of styles that you can achieve with your extensions that will give you the look you're going for.
Though I'm not convinced growing my hair back out is the right thing for me, these 15 styles for longer hair are surely making me reconsider. And, I'm sure they'll give you a little inspiration, too.
