Super-long styles used to be the milieu of only a select few women, but the advent of extensions and new technologies in application
and maintenance of hair extensions means that nearly any woman can have hair as long as she wants. In these cases, budget is usually the only limiting factor.
Here we see a super-long style that creates a segmented silhouette. The cut is long and lightly-layered (and
the hair is more than likely enhanced by extensions to add length and fullness) with a long curved fringe and razor-cut ends. The
larger portion of the top section is left free to form a fringe and side sweep, while the rest of the hair is drawn back in a loose,
but smooth, gather at the bottom of the crown section. A half-inch lock of hair is used to wrap the holder used to secure the
gathered hair and the loose end of the ponytail is divided and the interior is backcombed to add volume. The hair is then re-gathered
and re-secured at a point approximately eight inches lower. The gather is again camouflaged by a half-inch lock of hair.
The hair should be prepared by blow-drying it straight using a firm-hold product before the final styling. This will give the hair added
structure. The top portion of the hair left free can be flat ironed to create a smooth sweeping fringe and side locks to tuck
behind the ears. Use a light misting of hairspray and the edge of a bristled brush to smooth the surface of the finished style.
