8 Flattering Hairstyles for Long Faces To Appear More Balanced

Shaggy Shoulder Cut

The blunt lob's trendier younger sibling. Long faces benefit from this layer-heavy, side-sweeping shoulder cut's volume and framing.

Birkin Bangs

Bangs are the long face's mainstay, and Jane Birkin was the queen of full fringe. Bangs that skim the brows are always attractive for long faces.

Layered Shoulder Cut

It's basic but effective. Add face-framing layers and highlights to long faces to make middle sections work. The collarbone-grazing length is hair's "little black dress" like a lob.

Deep Side Part

Want an easy change? Change your part. Long faces benefit from a deep side part that attracts attention up rather than down.

Curly Shag

The shag haircut is timeless for a reason. It suits most face forms, especially oblong and long ones. Add killer curls and you're golden.

Curly Pixie

You can also always embrace the form. While pixie cuts aren't always the best option for long features, curls can help balance the face's width with volume.

Chin-Grazing Bob

This chin-length bob is both soft and blunt, framing an elongated face without even a hint of pulling, allowing wispy fringe to do the rest.

Long Layers

Keep your hair long as a tribute to the iconic Cher. This cut, which only requires lengthy layers, accentuates rather than conceals a longer face.
