The idea therefore to make these shapes more harmonious is to play on the volume, especially horizontally: that the hair is long or short, it does not matter, a long face looks great with framed by a mass of curls (also obtainable with a light permanent), or a thick wavy hair, or even a wavy and disheveled helmet.

A cut in motion

Among the cuts to be avoided for a long face, however, those that accentuate the vertical shape, therefore a ban on ridges, “bananas”, very long ponytails, dizzying buns, as well as very straight hair, with a static and “sculpted” appearance .

Better to opt for a threaded or “filleted” cut, a little asymmetrical, even a shag bob with a few rebellious locks and a few tufts that give as much as possible, once again, an idea of ​​movement.

Full bangs

Finally, if you have a long face, you can give your hair a beautiful bangs. It is one of the ideal elements to soften slightly marked features and round a face with an elongated shape, in all respects “shortening” it visually and making it more uniform.
