With the return of iconic actor Sherihan to Arab screens, fans were quick to notice her trademark long hair on full display. Showing off several looks in her return to film with Vodafone Egypt, the Egyptian actress’s signature long hair appeared in both a chic pulled-back ponytail, and worn loose, with her lengthy locks reaching her waist.
Famously a symbol of femininity and youth, long hair remains an evergreen trend which particularly suits Arab women and their flowing hair. While long hair can be difficult to take good care of – from knots and snags, to split and thinning ends – these products make maintaining Sherihan-style long lengths simple.
