1. Long Straight Hairstyles with Side Part

Whether your hair is naturally straight or you’re slaying in a wig, weave, or extensions, ultra-long straight locks are a visual blessing. If your hair flows down to your waist, you can just part it to the side and skip any other styling.

2. Contourage Straight Hairstyles

However, a straight hairstyle with a middle part is just as alluring. To further enhance the look, consider a set of face-framing contourage highlights.

3. Medium Length Straight Hairstyles

If you want a simple yet versatile foundation to work with, look into medium length hairstyles.

When your hair goes a tad bit past your shoulders, it’s long enough to style. At the same time, it isn’t so long that it gets out of hand.

4. Ombre Straight Hairstyles

Would you rather stand out with eye-catching straight hairstyles? Ombre hair is the way to go. The dramatic transition is guaranteed to draw attention, regardless of the colors you choose for the ombre.

5. Balayage Hairstyles for Straight Hair

Let’s say you want to play around with color but without a striking two-tone approach. Well, the balayage coloring technique is exactly what you need. The fine gradient helps you go from one color to the other harmoniously.

6. V Cut Straight Hairstyles

Switching back to haircuts for a sec, we have a gorgeous silhouette you should consider. The V cut is ideal for women with straight hair, as the triangular shape will clearly show.

7. Side Twist Straight Hairstyles

Picture this: you’re running late, but you don’t want to leave your hair down. To save time while staying chic, take a thicker section of hair, twist it to the side, and pin it behind your ear. Instant style.

8. Blunt Bob Hairstyles for Straight Hair

Throughout the past decade, bob hairstyles have made their way to the height of hair trends. Although there are tons of individual bob cuts you can test out, a blunt bob always looks spectacular on straight hair.

9. High Ponytail Hairstyles for Straight Hair

Long and luscious hair will look outstanding with ponytail hairstyles. Therefore, if you’re aiming for Instagram baddie glam, tie your tresses into a tight, slick, high ponytail. Add hairspray to the top section to avoid any unwanted wispy strands. 

10. Long Straight Hairstyles with Half Up Ponytails

As an alternative, you can look into equally fabulous half up half down hairstyles. You can even use Ariana Grande’s trademark hairstyle as inspiration for your half up ponytail. The approach also works as a trick to make your straight locks seem even longer.

11. Long Bob Hairstyles for Straight Hair

Another variation of the bob that works wonders for straight hair is the lob. Also known as long bobs, lob haircuts can be anywhere from halfway down the neck to over the shoulders.

12. Chunky Highlights for Straight Hair

What if you want to make your straight strands dazzle? Highlights will always be an appealing approach. If you’d rather go big than go home, try a set of chunky streaks that contrast with your base color.

13. Cute Straight Hairstyles with Bangs

Straight hair and bangs are a match made in heaven. Rest assured that there are numerous types of bangs that you can choose from. A frontal fringe will accentuate the straightness of your overall hair.

14. Layered Medium Length Straight Hairstyles

With a blunt, one-length haircut, your straight hair will shimmer with beauty. On the other hand, a straight haircut with layers will add texture, definition, volume, and all that good stuff.

15. Side Swept Straight Hairstyles

The late and great American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once stated, “In character, in manner, in style, in all the things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.

No truer words have been spoken. For a look worthy of a red carpet premiere, gracefully sweep your straight hair to the side.

16. French Braid Straight Hairstyles

Easygoing yet stylish, French braid hairstyles are a beautiful solution for when you’re in a rush. The technique is accessible, making it one of the quickest braids you can get aside from the traditional three-strand one.

18. Casual Updo Straight Hairstyles

Still, if you’re sticking to long locks for now, a casual updo should do the trick. Use a hair claw or a similar accessory to twist and clip your strands in place without much effort.

19. Shoulder Length Straight Hairstyles with Texture

You can sport medium length hair in a variety of ways. As an example, if you want to define your straight locks, add some texture with discrete layers.
