Hmmm, it kind of depends on the shape of your face too - different face shapes, different haircuts. Are they straight straight? Like, spaghetti straight? What color will you be wearing? Are you considering styling it or also dyeing it?

Just a few more questions to understand what we're talking about. A picture would be nice Happy

Depends on your style. If you want a quick flirty look try something with a braid. Or you can try loose curls ( If you don't want to use heat leave dry rollers in your hair over night and spray lightly with water.) Or if you want an edgy look you can try a side ponytail with pin straight side fringes/bangs. Oooorrrrr, you can try a faux hawk. For a formal look I suggest a Dowager bun or some other sort of up-do. So cute and very simple. There's a tutorial on youtube exactly by the user SecretLifeOfABioNerd. She has very cute hairstyles. Check her out. Happy Also Bubzbeauty has cute ones too.

DONT CUT IT! I have long hair as well and think it's awesome that you let it grow natural. Nowadays it's so rare to find people with healthy long hair. There are so many ways you can wear it.
If you want it down I suggest either curling with a waver, braiding before bed with mouse, or even rolling your hair before bed and wearing it down in the morning, This is what it looks like after only a few hours.

For the pictured hairdo I had my hair in two ponytails one above the other in the back of my hair and simply rolled the hair and pinned around, (the below pic is how it looked prior to taking the rolls out) when I took it down only a few hours later it looked like this, Just spritz with hairspray and your done.


Msg me if you want more ideas I can take some pics of the more fancy ways I do my hair.

When I graduated I had medium length hair and I wore it in a low side ponytail like this:

When I graduated junior high many many years ago I had ultra-long hair as well and I wore it down with a side part and curls. It was very simple and a lot of people complemented me on it.

If not you could do something like this:

I think really simple kind of tousled curls look good, stylish, and classy, and they work for every occasion, so I'm heading with the masses on this one. A graduation cap shouldn't ruin the style either. Plus, everyone loves curls!

Here's what I did with my hair for a prom I went to a few years ago.


It's literally just pinned up and I curled some of the strands hanging out.

Look up Torrin Paige on Youtube. She's a very talented braider with LONG hair. I've adapted many a braid for my (also) waist-length straight brown hair.
