The 10 Best Haircuts for Long Faces

1. LONG LAYERS

Sarah Jessica Parker is easily one of the most recognizable faces in your cohort. And as Carrie Bradshaw herself demonstrates to great effect, long hair can look absolutely stunning on longer face

2. FULL BANGS

Another way to balance out longer features with long hair? With a full set of fringe, of course.

3. PAGEBOY PIXIE

Prefer a short cut? Take a cue from Tyra Banks and try a pageboy pixie. With full bangs and plenty of tousled texture up top

4. BLUNT BOB

For oblong faces, it’s helpful to create fullness through the sides of your hair like Greta Lee does here

5. TEXTURED BOB

Whereas the bob above is on the sleeker, blunter side, Taylor Swift’s is more layered and textured. Topped with forehead grazing fringe

6. VOLUMINOUS TEXTURE

Blessed with a head full of curls like Kelly Rowland? You’re already a step ahead, since coaxing out volume shouldn’t be an issue for you.

7. LAYERED LOB

We’re willing to bet that Alexa Chung has inspired more lobs (and curtain bangs) than anyone in the last five years

8. FULL CURLS

Once more because it bears repeating: Volume and texture are golden for longer faces because they add width to the sides.

9. SIDE-SWEPT

When working with oblong faces, look for styles that accentuate the width of your cheekbones. Side-swept bangs a la Sandra Oh will do just the trick

10. SHULLET

A cross between a shag and mullet, the shullet (also referred to as “the wolf cut” on TikTok) offers plenty of texture and bulk to finer strands
