Say So Long to Unflattering Hair
For our long faced friends that join the ranks of Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Garner, and Jennifer Aniston, we have an arsenal of fabulous looking hairstyles to compliment your long face!
Not sure if you have a long face shape? The oblong face tends to be similar to a square shape, except it is longer and more narrow, often with an angular jaw and forehead (still confused? go here). If this describes you, be sure to read on for the hottest hairstyles of the season, tailored to show off your beautiful face.
Chin Length Bob
Show off your slender face and awesome sense of style with a chin length bob! Not only is a short bob a hit for summer 2013, but it’s the perfect length to de-emphasize a longer face shape. Fine and medium hair textures are ideal for this haircut, which can give hair volume and fullness. For more great bob hairstyle ideas visit our Pinterest bob hairstyles board.
Shoulder Length Waves
Take a cue from long faced vixens like Julianne Hough and Liv Tyler with flirty, shoulder length waves. Soften a square jaw and make your face appear fuller while rocking this effortlessly sexy hairstyle. Not only do waves work for all hair textures, but it is a great way to show off your playful side. Get a lasting look by prepping towel dried hair with Curl’s Rock by Tigi.
Enhance your beautiful eyes while shortening the appearance of your face with adorable bangs. From soft and wispy, to full and blunt, bangs can be a great hairstyle option for longer faces. Whether you have fine hair, or ultra thick locks, bang hairstyles work on any hair type.
Short Razored Haircuts
Enhance your beautiful long face with one of the hottest hairstyles of the season! An edgy, short razored haircut is not only ultra hot, but also an excellent choice for those with long faces. A layered, razor cut works best for medium and thick hair types. Rock it out with playful movement with an excellent product like B&b Texture Creme.
Ombre Color on Mid Length Hair
A chic ombre look creates dimension and movement that is flattering for long face shapes. Not only does it soften your look, but ombre hair color is super hot and it’s here to stay! Be sure to maintain your look with a color protectant shampoo like Redken Color Extend Shampoo. For some more great ombre hair color ideas pop on over to our Pinterest hair coloring ideas board.
Say so long to unflattering hairstyles, and hello to hair that not only compliments your long face shape, but is super stylish and sexy! From bobs and bangs to waves and edgy texture, there’s sure to be a fabulous look to satisfy your style craving.
