Photo&Video Tips: Best Hairstyles for Oblong and Oval Face

As you remember, the shapes of human faces differ. There are several types of face shapes
which are mentioned in our recent article Photo&Video Tips: Hairstyles for Diamond Face.

Face Shapes

What is an Oblong Face?

The main thing that defines oblong shaped faces is the length. They are roughly twice as long than they are wide, which is why they’re also known as “long” faces. With an oblong shaped face, your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline will all be about an equal width.

For those who have an oblong-shaped face, it may be best to experiment with styles that are angled or give more flair. Pulling multiple edges out at angles, adding volume to various areas of your hair, and using pastel colors are all great ways to create interest in a less-than-ideal face shape.

Texture is a huge one with oblong face shapes. By adding texture to the hair, it will add width to make the face shape more symmetric.

What is an Oval Face?

Oval faces have a horizontally balanced shape and tend to be longer than they are wide. TTheir jawline tends to curve outwards and the cheeks are wider than the rest of the face. Their chin is pointed, but their forehead is not as wide as the face.

Hair stylists recommend, and I agree with them, paying attention to long haircuts. This long straight hair features long soft layers, keeping the hair nice and full, with a blonde balayage adding volume to the mane. Going lighter keeps the hair looking healthier and less dull.

If you have long hair, you may try putting it up in a bun at the top of your head for a more rounded look.
