Having previously talked about what are the best hairstyles for a round face and for a square face, it’s now time to touch on a different, but at the same time similar, subject: hairstyles for a long face. The proud possessors of a beautiful oval or oblong face may have numerous times heard that they don’t have another hairstyling alternative than long and straight hair. That is not at all the case! And while it’s important to indeed find the right cut for your face shape, there are a lot of hairstyles that you can try, and they will look great on you too!
It’s true that people with long faces do not have as many options as those with other face shapes. But this shouldn’t even matter because you can have an incredible appearance with the options available to you. It’s all about balancing your features, choosing the right color and texture, and finally, enjoying yourself and being proud of yourself. This is why we have decided to show you some of our favorite hairstyles for a long face that you can try, and which will look amazing on you. Here we go!
1. Framing the face
One of the first things that you should be aware of when you have a longer face is the fact that every hairstyle you choose should frame your face. When it comes to pulling your hair back, this is especially important. Pulling back all the hair will not look good on you. However, if you are careful to leave a few soft and rebel strands out to beautifully frame your face, the entire hairstyle will change. Look at actress Nicole Kidman here, whose hairstyle offers the illusion of width. That’s exactly what you want to do!
2. Straight Bangs
This style of bangs is the perfect solution for someone with a long face. They balance your features nicely and look sophisticated. However, be careful about the length! The idea is to divide a longer face into thirds. So, the bangs should only cover one-third of your face. Not more, not less. Apart from this, you can do whatever you want with the rest of your hair, and it will look amazing.
3. The side part
A side part is the easiest and quickest way of dealing with a longer face. All the celebrities who have long faces, like Jennifer Aniston or Sarah Jessica Parker, use this trick. The idea here is that the side part breaks up the symmetry of your face and it will no longer look as oblong. It’s a very simple hairstyle, but one that tricks the eye. This works even better if you have straight hair or some relaxed waves. The length of the hair doesn’t matter in any of these examples because the idea is to balance the features of your face, and not anything else.
