If you have a long face, you may think no hairstyle will flatter it. Do not despair. There are hairstyles for long faces that will make you look amazing.
If you are not sure what hairstyle is best for a long face, here are some ideas.
Types of Hairstyles for Long Faces
So, what is the best hairstyle for someone who has a long face? There are a lot of hairstyles these people can choose from.
Side-Parted Shaggy Lob
You may want to try a side-parted shaggy lob. A lob is a longer form of a bob haircut. Shaggy lobs give volume to your hair, which makes your face appear shorter and fuller. You may be wondering, “Do bangs look good on long faces?” The answer is yes. With a side-parted shaggy lob, you can have extended bangs with a beautiful effect.
Long, Wavy, and Center-Parted Style
The long, wavy, and center-parted style is the best hairstyle for a long face with a big forehead. It is also the best hairstyle for a long face and a big nose. Center-parted hair is on-trend at the moment, so this style keeps you in fashion. The effect makes you look as if you have spent the entire summer at the beach. The center-parted style also helps to hide parts of a larger forehead. This, then, makes your face appear smaller.
Chopped Bob with Swoopy Bangs
If you love the look of bangs to help hide your face length, this is a great cut for you. Swoopy bangs add fullness to balance out the shape of your long face because they shorten it. A chopped bob, or even a chopped lob, adds volume with wavy hair. The haircut looks amazing on women with brunette or dark hair, as well as blondes and redheads. Many women love this style because it is easy to care for, and you can style it with almost no effort.
Asymmetrical Choppy Bob or Lob
We love an asymmetrical choppy bob or choppy lob because it continues to be easy to style. The style adds length to the front of your face, which makes your face look shorter. We also love this style with color. We recommend leaving the roots darker and lightening the ends. We can also play with color using this style, which makes it one of the most versatile styles we can do. This bob works for women with long noses as well.
Wispy Layered Hairstyle
If you have thin or fine hair, you do not need to despair. We have the perfect hairstyle for you. The wispy layered hairstyle is great for people with fine hair. The long layers create volume and fullness for your hair, and the length of hair balances out your face. With this hairstyle, you need to keep the color fairly monotone —you could add lighter pieces around your face. This look is so soft and natural you can wear it every day.
