Hair stylist Gemma Louise Smith from Hair for a Wedding reveals how you can style long, straight hair

Hair stylist Gemma Louise Smith from Hair for a Wedding reveals how you can style long, straight hair: Image 1 Q - I want to do something creative with my long, straight hair, but I’m not sure what style to go for. Do you have any suggestions?

"Preparation is key. Heated rollers will add volume and bounce to your tresses. It will also make it easier to create a romantic up do, or if you’d prefer it down, you could add romantic waves.

"If you want an up do, but your hair is thick and straight, I would purchase bobby pins that are stronghold. These are more expensive and can be bought from most wholesale hairdressing stores. They hold your locks like scaffolding rather than bending and slipping like shop-bought ones.

"For a more boho style, opt for a simple plait with flowers. These look great in long hair or a more formal ponytail. I’d always recommend having a few trial attempts either with your stylist or just having a play around with ideas at home before the day."
