Why Super Long Hair Is the Next Big Beauty Trend

After years of shorter hair cuts reigning supreme, super long hair has made its way back in-vogue.

The lived-in lob, aka a longer bob that hits right above the shoulders, has been the haircut of choice for just about every it-girl as of late. But, thanks to spring fashion runways like Versace, celebrities, and style bloggers–long hair is back and better than ever.

And we're not just talking about hair that hits at the bust, we're talking about super long hair. The longer, the better. Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were two celebrities who hopped on the long hair train early. Towards the end of last year, Kim Kardashian began sporting luscious long locks.

Hair flip & eye roll at the same damn time!

Should I be original and say long hair don't care?

Beauty blogger Deepica Mutyala gave it a go by enlisting a friend to create a lace-front wig for her inspired by Cher's signature black long locks.

And Gigi Hadid has been seriously growing her hair out, too.

But the real question—how can you try out this look without waiting five years for your hair to grow out?

Especially if you recently got a short hair cut, chances are you won't have hair down-to-there anytime soon. Luckily, there are options. The easiest way to get the look yourself is to get some clip-in extensions. If you head to a hair store, like your local Sally Beauty, you can pick out an affordable pair that matches your hair. And voila, you've got instant long locks instead of waiting a decade.
