Long hairstyles are made easier by adding in hair extensions. Extensions can be straightened beforehand and then just clipped in, or sewn in and then straightened. Black hairstyles like this are enhanced by adding hair color. Blonde or red can be really unexpected, and will take a regular straight style to a new level. Blow out the hair section by section so that it is pin straight, and add shine serum to seal in the style. Bangs or short layers that frame the face can be brushed under so that they lay softly around the face.
