Fresh & Festive 'Dos For Long Locks

This one's for the girls — specifically, those lovely ladies with long, flowing locks. Despite the fact that we love your shakeable manes, we understand that all of that length means that party styles can end up falling flat. As a result, many of the long-haired girls we know tend to avoid any looks that are too complicated. After all, what's the point of all of that work when it's all going to slump and slide by the time you hit your second glass of champagne?
To come up with styles that not only show off your beautiful locks, but also keep hold all night, we teamed up with Frédéric Fekkai hairstylist Mia Babes, who gave us some pro tips on easy styles that have major staying power. With little more than some teasing skills and a can of hairspray, you, too, can create these fresh 'dos. They'll get you through party season in major style — read on, Rapunzels!
