12. Buns and Waves Combo. Here is a great way to maximize the volume of long thin hair with loose waves, a slightly elevated crown, and a pair of messy swirls sitting in the back of the head.

22. Elegant Braid and Ponytail. This hairdo doesn’t seem to belong to easy long hairstyles, but it will take only five minutes to do it. Decorate it with accessories or leave as it is – the fascinating braid and wavy pony will capture everyone’s attention anyway.

23. Easy Long Hair Updo Tutorial. Looking for quick long hair hairstyles for special events? Make 4 ponytails, tie them as pictured, form an elegant bun, and add a piece of jewelry. Such cute hairstyles are great for weddings and proms.

24. Chic Updo for Long Black Hair. Make them jealous of how glossy your flowing thick swirls are with a high pony and bent front pieces.
