4 Genius Tricks To Fake Super Long Hair

While heading to the salon to get a chop when we want shorter hair is pretty simple and straightforward, going from short to long isn’t so easy. Of course, there’s the option of hair extensions, but it’s a process that’s both pricey and time-consuming. Thankfully, there’s plenty of ways to fake longer hair while you wait for your locks to lengthen IRL.

Lots of Layers

Next time you hit the salon, avoid blunt cuts and ask for a more layered look instead. While a cut that’s all one length makes the exact length of your hair obvious, a layered look will make the ends of your hair less defined.

Pick a Center Part

Much like when wearing horizontal or vertical stripes, a side part adds width, while a center part will visually lengthen vertically. Translation: For hair that instantly looks longer, simply switch up your part.

Straighten Things Out

The quickest way to add length to wavy or curly hair without a trip to the salon is by straightening it. No need to flat iron it to death either – the key here is to do a DIY blowout with a round brush to avoid losing bounciness and volume. For the perfect bombshell blowout, run a little bit of Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow Dry ($31) throughout your hair before beginning.

Hack Your Ponytail

If it’s feeling like an updo kind of day, this easy ponytail trick will seriously blow your mind. Start by pulling hair into a half-up style, and pull half of your hair into a high pony on top of your head. Underneath, pull the rest of your hair into a second, lower ponytail. Pull the hair from the higher ponytail over the lower one to hide it, and you’ll visually double the length of your tresses – it’s that easy!
