18 Hairstyles For Straight Hair That Are Cute And Trending

With curls and beach waves all the rage at the moment, it’s easy to forget that there are other ways that you can style your hair. This is especially true for those with straight hair.

I’ll let you in on a little secret, as a kid, I always wished I could have straight hair. Before blowing out my birthday candles each year, I wished that my curly, frizzy hair would turn straight overnight.

Shocker, it never happened. However, my love for straight hair is still here somewhere. Straight hair doesn’t need to be boring, in fact, it can often look classier and more elegant and we’ll prove that! I’ve put together here the best hairstyles for straight hair that are trending now!

1. Long Blonde Straight Lob

Starting off these hairstyles for straight hair with this gorgeous long lob in blonde. She happens to be extremely pretty too:)

Create a sweeping fringe to get the look right! If you have straight hair, you won’t need to do too much styling after each wash, it should simply fall into place!

2. Festive Low Bun

Wear this hairstyle any time of the year sans the crystals. It’s the perfect way to style straight hair for any occasion. This low twisted bun can work for an evening out and parties, or for a regular workday! It’s all about what you style it with.

4. Half Bun Hairstyle

Not ready to brave a short bob, no fear, this long straight hairstyle is another fave. Style your hair with a half-bun updo that’s twisted like a bagel. Add some flicks to the ends to dress it up a bit.

5. Caramel Medium Length Hair

Style your straight hair with some gorgeous caramel highlights. The hairstyle is so effective due to the hair all being one length aside from the cute curtain bangs that add bounce and sophistication!

6. Sleek Bob and Bangs

If the previous bob with bangs is too daring for you, we get it! This bob with bangs is a lot less out there, but still gives a chic and classy effect! It’s a simple way to style your straight hair!

7. Pixi Punk

If punk hairstyles are your thing, experiment with the classic pixie cut. Shave some areas and keep some longer. You’d be surprised at how effective it can look!

8. Pink Bowl Cut

The bowl hairstyle has taken a U-turn in recent years. This childhood nightmare haircut has turned into something trending and fun.

Yes, it’s had its upgrades in terms of how it’s cut, and truthfully it’s become one of the most sought-after short hairstyles for women. Spruce it up by adding a tint of pink!

9. Classic Pixie Cut for Straight Hair

The classical pixie cut is a favourite among those above 50. Although, nowadays anyone can wear it and look great!

It’s easy to style and upkeep, you don’t need to be a pro at hair styling to look fab every day! Keep your white hair intact with these shampoos for grey hair, you’ll never have a brassy day again!

10. Choppy Layered Hair

Similar to a pixie cut, just a lot longer. Style your hair with short layers to give it a choppy layered look. Add some cool purple hues to get the same effect as the model, it adds dimension and fun!

11. Disconnected Bob Hairstyle

If playing safe isn’t your thing, try out this cool disconnected bob. It gives a longer look as well as a younger look! All you need to do is keep the hair at the front longer than the rest of the traditional cut turning it into a rather untraditional bob!

11. Big Top Bun

This top bun is not exclusive to straight hair, but it is a great way to style straight hair! It’s easy, yet super effective. Curtain bangs with a few extra hairs out, add a lot too! Love your hair up? Check out more inspo here!

12. Red Colored Straight Bob

Upscale the classic bob with red and auburn coloured hair. A bob is one of the easiest ways to style straight hair, but if that’s too boring for you, add some fun highlights and lowlights to spunk it up a bit!

13. Long Ponytail

Straight hair doesn’t need to be short for it to be effective! A high ponytail with long straight hair tells the world that you mean business and there’s no messing about!

It can be worn for an everyday look as well as for a party or wedding. Timeless and chic! Check out some other ponytail ideas here.

14. Lob With Thin Bangs

Bangs are a great way to show off your straight hair and frame your face. However, thick bangs aren’t for everyone.

Thinner bangs are great for those over 50 with thinning hair, they don’t look too heavy set and help keep the face looking young. Styling your bangs with a lob is one of the prettiest ways to go!

15. Long & Sleek Hair

Bring it back to the basics with this long straight hairstyle. Keep your hair long and one length for the desired effect.

You need healthy hair to pull this one off but with Olaplex hair treatments, anyone can achieve that! Check out some other long hair ideas here.

16. Voluminous Bob

A voluminous layered bob is timeless and classic. It can take years off a person’s face, which explains why it’s so common in the over 50s. Add some layers to create that curved edge, or use a hair dryer which also does the trick!

17. Parisian Bob

This stylish French bob may take some styling, however, if you have straight hair, it won’t require too much, just a little curling at the ends. Can you ever go wrong with a Parisian bob? We don’t think so! Obviously, the perfect finish to this look is a beret:)

18. Shaggy Medium Length Lob

Keep it young and trendy with this shaggy hair look. Ideal for straight hair, it gets those edges naturally and needs very little styling or upkeep.

My Thoughts

Straight hair is anything but boring! There are loads of different hairstyles that work for straight hair, the trick is finding the one that works for you.

The most fun part about straight hair is that it often needs little to no styling. Take advantage of that with one of these hairstyles that do exactly that!
