Having a long face comes with many advantages – you get to stand out from the crowd, you look classy and put together – but finding the right hairstyle can be a tricky affair.
Going with wavy layers is a smart choice for a long face. An asymmetrical cut can be truly flattering and add a sassy feel to your style. The waves will pump up the volume and bring attention to your cheekbones. You can achieve this look using a curling iron, hair rollers or even your own hands.
If short and sassy is the look you’re after, then consider getting a bob. This style will create a stunning frame for your face and give you an extra bit of volume. You can choose from a variety of looks – from sleek and straight to wavy and messy. If you add subtle highlights to your bob it will make it look even more vibrant and compliment your features.
Bringing attention to the crown area with a high ponytail is a great way to make your face look shorter. This is a perfect option for a formal event, or just for a night out. Teasing the roots of your ponytail for a voluminous look will step your style up a notch. You can also add some bold accessories and a bright lip color to complete your look.
If you’re trying to decide between an updo and a down do, this is a foolproof solution. In this style, you can create volume at the roots like in an up-do while keeping the length and volume of the down do. The added texture and moderate amount of volume will beautifully frame your face and also add instant chic to your look. You can also try mixing up partings in this look.
This is definitely the most dramatic and classic look for a long face. Letting your hair down, super straight, and playing around with middle or side partings. To make your hair look really sleek and straight, you should use a heat protector before using a flat iron and refrain from using too many products. The sharp lines of this look are sure to make a statement while also helping to accentuate your features.
From wavy layers to bouncy bobs, there are many flattering options to show off a long face. The key to pulling off any of these looks is to understand your own face structure and which hairstyle will really bring out the beauty of your face the most.
