Long hair continues its reign this year, but gone are the shiny, bone-straight manes of past popularity. Stylists are adding curls, waves, volume and even a little frizz to lengthy tresses for results with movement and life. Here, four stylists from MODERN SALON’s recent Artist Session demonstrate how long doesn’t have to be boring. Hair: Shirley Gordon: stylist, Strands Hair Studio in Wheaton, Maryland; Sherri Jessee: Rusk Educator; Cindy Wade: stylist at Cristophe at Fashion Island, Newport Beach, California; Jose Buitron: owner, Jose Luis Salon in Austin, Texas; Jessica Mercado: senior stylist, Jose Luis Salon Photography: Roberto Ligresti Make-up: David Maderich

We used a one-inch curling iron to set the hair in a wave pattern. We then combed out the set and backcombed the hair using only our fingers. —Jose Buitron and Jessica Mercado

The makeup was glamorized with reds on both lips and eyes and the hair was an amped-up 1940s-inspired shape. —Sherri Jessee

I finished the look with a soft, wavy curl. For make-up, I chose to make her beautiful green eyes the focus and enhanced them with a deep, smoke-y shadow. —Shirley Gordon

After creating my vision board and doing considerable experimentation, I let the creativity flow at Artist Session with the insightful help of Maggie Mulhern, Roberto Ligresti and David Maderich. —Cindy Wade
