    A head of long, flowing, beautiful hair. If your hair is vertically challenged, you've probably dreamt of having long locks to play with. The problem is, as soon as your hair gets past the shoulders, it's easy to forget your hopes for "versatile long layers" and simply end up wearing your hair loose every day (or tied up, which completely defeats the purpose, right?).

With a little bit of creativity, those long layers will be (promise!) as versatile as you always thought they'd be.
