Is long hair always sexy?
A beautiful lady, whose long, luscious, and shiny mane slides sexily down her back, teasingly framing her perfect buttocks, may be a regular scene in a James Bond movie, but in real life, it is a comparatively rare mage. If a woman has been blessed with hair that can maintain health, vitality, shine, and sex appeal when it is long, it is considered the embodiment of femininity, fertility, and beauty.
Unlike the movies, if long hair is not maintained to a high standard, it can be lank, thin, dry, unattractive and definitely not sexy. Because long hair requires such high maintenance if it is to be considered sexy, there are numerous tips, steps and advice available to ensure attractive long hair is achieved.
How to make long hair sexy
If you are determined to persist with long hair, there are certain styles that can give long locks the zest and life they often crave. Long hair can look its "limpest" when left in a middle parting, which is the way long hair tends to naturally fall. Wearing the hair swept to one side can immediately eliminate limpness and dullness. Styling long hair to one side can also accentuate eyes and cheekbones.
Don't be afraid to experiment with accessories to "glam up" long hair, and placing a pretty clip to one side will promote elegance, femininity, and help you achieve sexy long hair. One of the great advantages long hair has over shorter haircuts is the amount of different styling options available.
There is something incredibly attractive about a long, lush, glossy ponytail cascading down a woman's back. Try experimenting by placing ponytails at different heights. Buns and swoops provide elegance and chic and tend to give the face some vitality and lift, as well as assisting in the goal to achieving sexy long hair.
According to a poll, men find wavy, long locks the sexiest hair on a woman. To achieve the hair that the likes of Britain’s X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole and Friends actress Jennifer Aniston, seem to so effortlessly achieve, experiment with curlers, rollers and flat irons. One of the greatest assets of long hair is its ability to be experimented with and manipulated, although be warned, the excessive use of heated appliances can dry out and damage long hair – use sparingly.

Although long hair is extremely versatile, in order for it to be sexy, it needs to correspond with many different factors, including the physical characteristics and individual lifestyle of the woman. The shape of a face, a woman's figure, texture and thickness of her hair, her eye color, and skin tone all need to be considered when deciding which style to go for to optimize sexy, long hair.
Lifestyle traits are just as important. What are your personal time limitations? Do you have the hairdressing skills to maintain the same style you left the salon with? Do you have the financial resources to maintain your long locks?Personalities and careers also come into the equation. Do long, wavy locks suit a businesswoman competing with men? Is having hair grown down to the bottom practical for women in the medical profession or in a kitchen?
Sexiness is not solely about being aesthetically pleasing to the eye. To be considered sexy, realism and common sense must prevail. Nobody wants their soup to be strewn with hairs, no matter how sexy the woman serving it may be.
How to take care of long hair to retain its sexiness
Long hair demands more care and attention to maintain than short hair. Simply growing your hair, washing it several times a week, and brushing it every morning will not ensure a sexy long mane. There are several steps you can follow which will help preserve a sexy head of long and lavish locks.
Because long hair is more prone to breakage and split ends, refrain from brushing it when it is still wet. If you do brush it, use a wide-toothed comb to minimize the chances of breakage. Wash long hair frequently, preferably every two days, as hair that is long is more susceptible to becoming greasy, and hair that is greasy does not equate to sexy hair.
Use a high-quality conditioner designed specifically for your hair type to keep your long hair in good condition and to minimize dry or frizzy ends, which can often plague longer locks. Leave-in conditioners are a good option for longer hair, as they help keep the hair smooth as well as making combing easier.
