You only need to reach for your creative side, and you'll get endless, beautiful hairstyles you can rock with your long wig.

To help you get started on this path, we'll show you a few styling options for your long (synthetic and human hair) wigs. These are fancy, flawless, and simple hairstyles you are familiar with. You can also make tweaks to them or combine a variety of styles for something more unique.

11 Long Wig Styling Options

1. Ponytails

Ponytails have been a go-to hairstyle for the longest time. And it's not going out of style anytime soon. Try rocking a ponytail style with your human hair long wig. It'll give a gorgeous look you can't resist.

Try the low ponytail style. It's simple to achieve, elegant and beautiful. You can easily brush your wig and tie it around the nape of your neck. Please ensure it's not too tight to avoid damaging your wig when it's time to loose the hair.

high ponytail

A high ponytail is stunning as well. Brush your wig upwards and hold it in place with a hair elastic. It might be hard to style this with some regular wigs, but it'll look amazing if you can opt for a 360 wig or full lace wig. Add a few tresses around your face and tame your hair with hairspray.

2. Loose Curls

Loose curls are an excellent choice if you love to keep your tresses flowing. The curls will add glam to your simple hair, making it all the more gorgeous. So, if you have a human hair wig, this is for you.

Loose Curls
  • Wash your wig with the recommended products from the manufacturer and allow it to dry.
  • Once it's dry, detangle properly. Make sure there are no tangles in the hair when you begin.
  • Then, get your curling iron and start curling. It's magical and endearing.

But, this style might be hard to achieve on synthetic wigs. That's because they come pre-styled and take that shape forever. So, if you fancy this style, get a long synthetic wig with loose curls. That way, you can enjoy wearing your curls and can wear other hairstyles with curls.

3. Braids or Plaits

Braids are very versatile on their own. Choosing to add braids to your long wig makes it even more versatile. Plus, there are a lot of plait styles to choose from. There's the French braid, the Dutch braid, fishtail braid, and many more. Adding any of these will give you a stylish look and add a touch of creativity to your hair.
