It's a well known fact that hairstyles have a huge impact on the geometry of the face, having the capacity to modify our facial features in a decisive way, by modifying the angles and hiding some traits while emphasizing others. Those who have long faces often feel like they have a hard time finding suitable hairstyles for their features as they find it difficult to minimize face length. Although minimizing the overall length is important it is usually not enough.
For best results it is necessary to find ways to create an adequate balance between the length of the face and its width by balancing the narrow jaw.
When it comes to oblong faces one thing that should be kept in mind is that extremes should be avoided at all costs. On the one hand, very short hairstyles have absolutely no effect when it comes to reducing length and spiky hairstyles can even create more unnecessary length. On the other hand, very long hair is not flattering for this face either, because long tresses tend to emphasize your facial features even more.
A good way to narrow down your options and to increase the chances of finding a suitable hairstyle for you is to choose hairstyles that surpass the jawline and to aim for shoulder length hairstyles as these are some of the most flattering choices for this face shape. In addition, avoiding middle parts is also a wise idea, as this is another element that contributes to the impression of overall length.
