While many A-Listers are opting for stylish, structured chops, others are stepping out on to the red carpet with ultra-long hair. Flowing, mermaid-like locks aren’t exactly anything new, but the trend took centre stage this year when actresses and Euphoria co-stars Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney graced the spring/summer 2024 fashion shows at Paris Fashion Week. In the world of high fashion, front-row sightings of stars wield as much influence in setting trends as the designers' collections themselves.

Typically, ultra-long hair is styled with easy, relaxed waves and a blend of subtle, multi-tonal colours. Long hair of this calibre perfectly embodies the 'quiet luxury' lifestyle, giving off an effortlessly cool vibe, as opposed to short, structured cuts which can come off as more high maintenance. If you’re looking to add dramatic length to your tresses with hair extensions this summer, then our 24 and 26 inch extensions are definitely for you. Here’s the top 10 dramatic long hair looks of past and present that you can take some inspo from!


Cher, the goddess of pop, has sported numerous iconic hairstyles, but her sleek, waist-length black hair remains one of the most memorable.

Her hair exudes sophistication and perfectly complements her stunning stage outfits, making it an evergreen favourite.
