I absolutely have to comment that I love some of the suggestions so far, I will try the flexirod styling option, I have only ever used flexirods to set my hair but I most def. am inspired now to try some more styles.
Loved the pics in the first pages of the thread too.
And those long locks... wow!*grabs fan* That's my dream length...
luckily dreams can come true...hopefully.

Thank u everyone. Thanks so much Ritle!
And to comment on straight hair styles.
I personally only really style my hair in to updos with straight hair if it's starting to revert and I still want to work with the stretched length. In general straight hair is my moment to enjoy the length, so I let it hang and blow in the wind
I do think that you can use cute hair accessories to still make a difference to your hair while it's down when it's straight, but I guess that would depend on the outfit and the occasion.
Straight hair can give you an option to make a more massive doughnut bun though, especially with hair pins, I've been wanting to try that, so I most def. will try that and hopefully will be able to document that moment.
I guess you could also do rolled updo's where you'd leave some of the hair hanging out in spiral curls.
One thing I also used to do(years back) was put my hair in a very high ponytail with a black hair elastic and let the hair on top hang down and let it come together with a swoop bang in the front.
I don't even know why I didn't think of that while I was wearing my hair straight last time.I think if executed a bit differently you could create a faux-bob style as well.
Personally I tend to stay away from styles that will not look drastically different from my hair while it's curly, like a tight rolled up bun, so that is only a last resort option if it has rained and there's no time for anything else.
Also (a)(chop)stick(s) might be an option to achieve quick straight updo's and getting them in different colors and designs might help switch things up a bit.
Silly me, did not buy a few hair clips because they won't close properly on my hair, not taking in account that when I wear it straight I actually CAN wear those hair clips. So that will be my next tip, bring out whatever accessory would not flatter or work with your hair otherwise when your hair is straight. So back to that store I shall go,lol.
You can also use braids or twists to change a look, like a braid and twist running across in the front to look like a natural hairband.
Or a flat twist in the front.
Straight hair is also a moment to explore a fishtail side braid, the straight hair edition. Or any side braid for that matter.
Honestly, styling can be a pain in the butt when you run out of ideas.
So I most def. understand where you are coming from.
