Long auburn hair can look gorgeous whether wavy and tousled with multiple layers or shiny and straight. For an elegant updo, a twisted side ponytail works well for long auburn hair, and both simple and intricate buns are good hairstyles, particularly when accented with a jeweled clip.
A tousled look for long auburn hair can be obtained by applying a sea salt spray to dry or damp hair. For sleek, straight hair, a flat iron should be used to smooth out waves only as needed to keep hair as voluminous as possible. Texturizer and heat can both be applied to create volume.
To accentuate a layer in long auburn hair, an antifrizz product can be applied to damp hair to create texture. For a sophisticated side ponytail, the hair should be curled to create depth and texture. Twist almost all the hair with an elastic band to one side of the neck, allowing the rest of the hair to fall in waves on top. When styling a bun at the nape of the neck, bangs should be swept up with hair when possible. An outfit-matching clip can be used to keep bangs in place.
