How to Create an Elegant Long Hair Style for Any Event

If you have long hair and you are going to be going to a big upcoming event, there are many things that you can do to style your hair at home.

Comb your hair with a wide toothed comb and dry it on a low setting with a hair dryer. Brush your hair with a boar-bristle brush. Now, section off the majority of the top of your hair and leave just a few inches on the bottom. In two-inch sections, use a one-inch barrel curling iron to curl the lower section of your hair.
