Hair looks good at every length. But longer hair gives you more room to have fun with colors, layers, and styles. If you're more of a lazy girl and would rather bypass fussy styles—we feel you, and we're here for you—we've rounded up a bunch of inspo pics of hairstyles that take minimal mirror time. But if you're extra like us and want to commit to getting a little creative, they are cutting-edge styles in here for you to try as well.

Whether it's trying out a temporary color before you go full rouge, adding a fun accessory to spice things up, or just want to be in on the latest trend, there's something out there for everyone. So when it comes to the quality time spent between you, your mirror, and a hairbrush, you want to make it count. Thankfully here at MC, we scoured the Internet and drooled over our favorite celebrities for the best long hair looks. Next time you're looking for a change of scenery—sorry, I mean hair—look no further.
