Having a long neck is a pain, isn’t it? Every time you shop for clothes you’re left fretting over whether a particular style of shirt will exaggerate your neck or make it look even shorter than it actually is. Wearing turtlenecks can be a literal pain too! When it comes to haircuts, long necks can make it difficult to know what will make you look your best. Fear not, for in this post we reveal the perfect haircuts for those with long necks!
When it comes to a long neck, simplicity is key. Keeping it one length around your face will help you to achieve an elegance that flatters your neckline. For a more straightforward look, ask your barber to trim a single length all the way around your head. This can be any length you like and will frame your face nicely! Alternatively, a side or parting will add some balance to the overall look.
Nothing screams style like a great set of bangs. Bangs are a simple, yet effective way to break up the monotony of a long neck. Even if you opt for the “fringe-less” look, bangs can add body and volume to the front of your hairstyle. Adding some bangs will draw attention away from your long neck and onto the smouldering face that is beneath it.
Layers can be a great way to alleviate the tension of a long neck. By leaving longer hair around the sides and back, you can help to balance out your face and make it look more proportional. Layers are also a great way to add more definition and texture to a hairstyle. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even try an asymmetrical layered look for an edgy and modern style.
If you’re after a sharp, stylish look, then an undercut may be the perfect solution. This style can help to create a sleek silhouette which frames your face, while allowing you to keep the length on the top and sides. To get the look, simply ask your barber to trim the sides of your hair shorter than the top and your long neck will become a thing of the past.
So, if you’re looking for the perfect haircut to compliment a long neck, then one of these styles is sure to be a winner. Whether you opt for a one length cut, bangs, layers or an undercut, you can’t go wrong with this selection!
