Long Face Shape

Long face shapes are always confused with oval ones. They may look similar from a certain perspective, but they actually have a few things in common. Long faces or somebody may call them oblong, have an elongate silhouette, where cheeks, forehead, and jawline are almost the same width. Such a face shape doesn’t have any prominent points or angles, yet its length might appear too slim and long. That’s why we need a proper cut!

Do I Have a Long Face?

If your chin is slightly curved, while the proportions of your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline have the same width, you’ve got a long face.

For long face shapes, the main aim is to find the hairstyle that will angle them up. Since your facial features are primarily curvy, a side fringe haircut will give a bit edgy silhouette and build a perfectly balanced body.

One of the basic styling tips for oval face shapes is that your cut should be as voluminous as possible. Ask your hairstylist for layers or feathers because such textures lift up the ends and crown, creating the needed fullness. Also, hairstyles with deep side part will be a good idea to volume up the top, as when one side outweighs the other, it gets fuller.

Thick bangs can add even more volume, and, most importantly, frame your forehead. With such a sumptuous silhouette of your hair, there’s no way your face will look too long.
