The Best Hairstyles for Long Faces to Appear More Balanced

Do you have a long face and are looking to find a flattering haircut or hairstyle? If so, let’s first make sure you truly understand your face shape. Then, we’ll jump into pictures to show you all the ways you can cut or style your hair so that it complements your long face.

Let’s first define a long face… A long face shape is characterized by a face that is longer than it is wide, often with a narrow appearance and less pronounced cheekbones. This face shape typically features a similar width at the forehead, cheeks, and jawline.

The key to a long face is to create balance and proportion with your haircut or hairstyle. For example, bangs are highly recommended for long faces as they can make the face appear shorter and more oval. Specific hairstyles can also complement individual facial features, such as using bangs and facial framing to balance a wide forehead, or asymmetric haircuts to counter a crooked nose. Different types of bangs, like straight, side-swept, or curly, can enhance the overall appearance.

I’ve put together pictures of the best haircuts and hairstyles for women with long faces. These were chosen for how well they balance out a long face and how stylish they are.

Bottleneck Fringe on Wispy Hairstyle for Long Faces

#1: Bottleneck Fringe on Wispy Hairstyle

A style called bottleneck fringe looks good on thin, light hair. The bottleneck fringe style suits longer face shapes well. The fringe spreads out, giving a lot of volume to create width. Pinch the top of your hair and apply hairspray to achieve the bottleneck look.

#2 Vintage Boho Middle Part

This will give you that 60s/70s boho chic. Adding bangs to a hairstyle can help women with long faces like you. The fringe is the focal point of this cut, so consider that based on your face length. If your hair is frizzy/curly, know that you’ll probably have to spend a few minutes extra styling it in the mornings. If you do not like having hair in your face, keep the fringe or curtain bangs on the longer side.

#3: Chocolate Side-Swept Bangs

Try side-swept bangs if you want to break up the lines in your facial profile. When it comes to bangs, ask your stylist to keep them chunky with a soft texture. Remember you must add face-framing pieces around the bottom of your haircut to ensure the shape stays soft and bouncy.

Thick Curls at Shoulder-Length for Long Faces

#5: Thick Curls at Shoulder-Length

If you have hair with thick curls, two things are important. First, consider styling your hair to shoulder-length. Your curls should be styled to make your face seem wider. This will help to make your face look more balanced. Stylists should create longer layers with your hair. Longer layers help to keep some weight at the hair’s ends.

#6: Short Feathery Fringe on a Long Shag

Women having long faces could try a short, feathery fringe on a long shag style. This haircut style will balance your face length and boost your confidence all day.

#7: Chic Layered Cut with Textured Bangs

One of the most popular haircuts is a long layered cut with long bangs. When searching for haircuts that will flatter your face, know that if you have a narrow forehead, you should be very careful about wearing too heavy of a fringe as it can tend to close in your face. If you’re a woman with a taller forehead, you will love how the bangs balance your face shape and bring attention to your eyes.

Neck-Length Italian Bob with Long Swoopy Bangs for Longer Faces
Instagram @_idbeauty

#8: Italian Bob with Long Swoopy Bangs

Ask for a beautifully shaped Italian bob that sits at the collarbone it’s turned under for fullness. Long, swoopy bangs add glamour and frame the face. Turn the brush while drying. Avoid straighteners, as they can flatten the shape.

#9: Long Flowing Curled Tresses

You can achieve this style, which is appropriate for those who prefer feminine presentation, with minimal layering of hair and a hairstyle that suits longer face shapes. A middle part is optional, but it can give your style a trendy look. I suggest you apply a light hairspray to your long hair before you start curling it away from your face using a 1-inch iron. Spray again afterward and let the waves cool before gently combing your locks.

#10: Vintage Bardot-Inspired Shag Cut

Try a classic vintage Bardot-inspired shag cut! The extra layers in this cut highlight her jaw and cheekbones, and they also balance her long face. These layers guide the eye upwards. I suggest using a good volume mousse and hot rollers when styling this type of cut for added lift and hold.

#11: Balayage with a Swoop Bang

A balayage with a swoop bang is a traditional yet stylish look. Talk with your stylist about getting a long layered hairstyle. You can choose between an added side bang or a short face frame. Also, ask for a balayage highlight that suits your skin tone. Need some movement in your hair? Use a 1′ 1/2 Hot Tools curling iron after applying a heat protectant. The 1′ 1/2 Hot Tools curling iron helps achieve a lasting wavy look, which even lasts until your next hair washing day.

#12: Feathered Shag for Medium-Length Blonde Hair

Add interest to your medium-length blonde hair with a feathered shag. The angled sides of the feathered shag open up your face. This cut is great for balancing out long features. The layered sides of the cut add width to your face and softness to your style. Blow dry your hair back using a medium round brush and curl with an iron if required.

Bronde Balayage on a Shoulder-Length Shag for Long Faces
Instagram @hirohair

#13: Bronde Balayage on a Shoulder-Length Shag

Women can add dimension and warmth to their hair by choosing a bronde balayage on a shoulder-length shag. The softer layers and face-framing fringe with a bronde balayage create a balanced look for longer face shapes. The bronde balayage technique blends subtle blonde and brunette tones, giving hair a natural sun-kissed effect. This hairstyle, a bronde balayage on a shoulder-length shag, offers versatility and easy maintenance. To achieve it, start with damp hair and apply volumizing mousse from roots to ends to add body.

Voluminous Mid-Length Hair for Long Faces

#14: Voluminous Mid-Length Hair

Bringing your length to a mid-length will give you the ultimate voluminous bounce! This length is great for thick or thin hair. This style trims your hair just the right amount, ensuring it stays long yet feels lighter. Don’t forget to ask about the best home styling products for this look during your next salon visit.

#15: Medium to Long Blonde Balayage Hair

This balayage blends blonde shades, seamlessly transitioning from darker roots to lighter ends, creating a sun-kissed effect. You should consider the length and brightness of your hair because this helps balance your face shape. This look is very versatile. Ask your stylist about the custom colors that suit you best. To style your new do, make sure your hair is dry and grab your 1.25 inch iron. Spray a thermal protectant spray and curl away.

#16: Cool Brown Mullet

The cool brown mullet is a chic and trendy haircut. The haircut features shorter layers in the back and longer layers in the front, creating a stylish and edgy look. The shorter layers add volume and movement to the hair, while the longer layers frame the face beautifully.

#17: Face-Framing Round Bangs for Thin Hair

Face-framing round bangs for thin hair is a fantastic way to help add volume. It also enhances the overall appearance of thin hair. These bangs are cut in a rounded shape that frames the face, creating a flattering and youthful look. By focusing on the front sections of the hair, these bangs draw attention to the face.

Lived-In Dark Brunette Style for Long Faces
Instagram @nothingobvious

#18: Lived-In Dark Brunette Style

A lived-in dark brunette style could be a great choice if you want to add depth to your hair. Avoid cutting too much length off the sides to keep your hair looking its best. You could risk making your face appear even longer. Instead, consider a shaggier cut that removes weight from the sides. To give your hair volume, style your have with loose waves and finish with a texture spray!

Classic Long Round Layers for Long Face Shapes and women in their 40s
Instagram @nothingobvious

#19: Classic Long Round Layers

With classic long round layers, you’ll get the perfect volume, which is good for long face shapes. I suggest adding loose curl with a one-inch iron to your blow-dried layers. If you have a natural wave, you can skip the iron and twirl your hair around a metal barrel round brush. Then let it cool in place for a wavy texture. Don’t forget to add a soft hold hairspray like Kenra Perfect Medium Spray 13 for control.

#20: Fiery Red Curled Hair

Tip: when you have a long face shape look for a style that adds width through the temples and center of your face. Try a curled style to compliment your face shape and show off the dimension in your color.

#21: Wispy Natural Silver Hairstyle

Do you want a low-maintenance style? I suggest working with your natural hair texture and growth pattern. Aim for key features that you want to highlight—for example, your eyes, cheeks, and chin. Determine the length to create around those features.

#22: Curly Bob with Curly Fringe for Black Hair

Consider getting this curly bob with a curly fringe cut to frame and flatter your face. Ask your stylist for shorter layers in the back for that perfect look. But leave longer pieces to frame your forehead. This will help enhance cheekbones and jawline structure. It will give fullness around the ears, which creates balance in an elongated facial shape. Ask them to use cutting techniques for curly/coiled hair. The wrong technique can cause frizzing out. Use curl creams to help add definition and structure to the shape of your coils.

Naturally curly hair with center part for long face shapes
Instagram @aoki_hair

#23: Naturally Curly Hair with Center Part

A soft, curly shag haircut with a center part will make your face appear shorter. This haircut can truly be tailored to an oblong face shape! The main components of a good shag are curtain fringe, lean length, and volume at the crown. You can base the length of your fringe on whether you want to partially cover your forehead or accentuate the area between the eye and the cheekbone.

#24: Edgy Textured Pixie

A pixie cut looks stunning with bangs and texture. If you want this cropped cut, your stylist will use a razor for about 90% of the haircut so that it will give your strands extra life. To maintain this cropped cut, I highly recommend a pomade. Using a pomade lets you spike up your hair and piece out the fringe for that messy yet sleek look. I used Johnny B Xtra Hold pomade.

#25: Textured Blunt Long Bob (Lob)

You may want a blunt long bob (lob) with lots of texture. It has no top layer but tons of interior shattered layers. I like that it can be worn sleek or when curled; it has tons of layers and texture and looks more sassy and fun. Also, you can add a stack to it. It’s not a heavy stack, so if that’s what you are going for, you need to know the back will be more layered.

#26: Long Feathered Layers for Thick Hair

Long feathered layers will add movement and definition. Ask your stylist to add layering to your thick locks to keep bouncy movement. To give this haircut the perfect “it girl” style, use a round brush in your hairstyling routine.

#27: Color and Cut Makeover

When someone comes in and says they want to update their look, I advise them to start by changing their hair color. I then will cut the hair in such a way to help show off that new color. Even changing your color by a shade or two can transform your appearance. It can add warmth to your skin, making you look like you have a healthy glow!

Low-Maintenance Lob with Blunt Ends for Long Faces
Instagram @m.albernaz

#28: Low-Maintenance Lob with Blunt Ends

Give your hair some edge with this low-maintenance lob with blunt ends. It complements an oval and oblong face shape. This haircut requires trims every 6 to 8 weeks to keep those ends looking sharp. Use the Bumble and Bumble Brilliantine to keep your style smooth and shiny.

#29: Blonde Choppy Bob with Pink Dip Dye

A blonde choppy bob with pink dip dye is a safe yet trendy way to play with color! If you want to experiment with short haircuts, try a chin-length razored bob. For instance, this short style can sometimes give the illusion of a longer pixie haircut, depending on how you style it.

Amazing Braided Bob for a Long Face
Instagram @hairbyclipperz

#30: Amazing Braided Bob

The best way to style your natural texture is to do it on a braided bob. You’ll get complete control and a ready-made style, time after time. Maintenance ranges from 4-12 weeks, and colors range from natural to vibrant. You will want to find a loctician or braider that is good with design and density types. That will help to ensure the best health for your hair.

Voluminous Wavy Hairstyle with Warm Tones for Long Faces
Instagram @jhonyveiga

#31: Voluminous Wavy Hairstyle with Warm Tones

A voluminous and wavy hairstyle is the perfect caramel balayage for naturally darker brunettes. Since lifting darker hair naturally exposes red and orange, caramel or honey tones are best suited for the longevity of the color. I recommend keeping your natural darker base level and creating subtle warmth on your ends.

Straight Smoky Blonde Hair with a Fringe for a Long Face
Instagram @ernestomeneses

#32: Straight Smoky Blonde Hair with a Fringe

To switch up your look, try a smoky blonde hair color and add a fringe about eyebrow length to break up the length of your hair and frame your face without enhancing it. To maintain this color, you only need a highly pigmented purple shampoo, such as Schwarzkopf’s Good Bye Yellow shampoo. Your best bet for styling your new look is to go for a sleek, straight blowout using a blow dryer brush to make styling much easier instead of learning how to coordinate holding a round brush and blow dryer at the same time.

#33: Very Long Bob with Feathered Ends

When looking for the right hairstyle for a long face, try a very long bob parted in the middle. Make sure to ask your stylist for feathered ends to add some texture and movement to your style. Long faces aren’t usually made for bobs, but a long bob is perfect for framing your features and enhancing your face shape.

#34: 70s Wolf Shaggy Lob with Piece-y Bangs

I love doing funky, shag haircuts on my clients. This 70s-inspired cut works great because of where the layers are grazing the cheeks. This cut can be modified by switching up the micro bang for a longer curtain bang. It will give you the same cool rockstar effect!

Long Messy Ginger Hair with Bangs for a Long Face
Instagram @nataliarok

#35: Long Messy Ginger Hair with Bangs

There is nothing more striking than long messy ginger hair with bangs. I recommend cutting the angles on the sides at about chin-length to accentuate facial features. The bangs and piece-y sides will work wonders to round out your appearance. You want to create extra volume on the sides for even better balance. If you want that translucent ginger color, a great way to go would be a semi-permanent sealer in that shade.

Grey Pixie Hair with Long Side Bangs for a Long Face Shape
Instagram @hd.concept

#36: Grey Pixie Hair with Long Side Bangs

Try grey pixie hair with long side bangs for a unique take on a short hairstyle. The long side bang is a great way to flatter your appearance if you have strong facial features. The asymmetry looks so cool and is a perfect choice if you want to hang on to a little length. Remember that you’ll want to style the hair on top more forward and flat for a modern finish. You’ll need to have this beautiful shape trimmed about every 4-5 weeks.

#37: Bronde Hair with Loose Waves

Be on trend with bronde hair with loose waves. A nice face frame will make your face appear more proportional. Create loose waves with a big barrel curling iron to make your locks look full of texture and body. Show your hairstylist your idea of the perfect long hairstyle, and go for it.

Center-Parted Medium Shag with Soft Curls for Long Face Shapes
Instagram @bareeminimum

#38: Center-Parted Medium Shag with Soft Curls

Next time you visit the salon, instead of your typical trim, why not try a center-parted medium shag hairstyle with curls? A hairdo like this will make styling easy if you have a bit of wave or curl in your hair. Air dry or diffuse this style with Hairstory Balm and Undressed for a soft, tousled look.

Short Layered Bixie with Wavy Bangs for Long Faces
Instagram @michelle.k.harrison

#39: Short Layered Bixie with Wavy Bangs

Consider a short layered bixie with wavy bang. A bold short bixie is low-maintenance and is very easy to style. Layered waves add depth and body and are an excellent choice if you want a wash-and-go cut. Use some texture paste to add more definition to your waves.

#40: Creamy Blonde Hair with Medium Swoopy Layers

Have more fun with creamy blonde hair with medium swoopy layers. Swoopy layers will add body and give your hair lots of volume. Try adding a face frame to bring some softness and proportion to your face. Use a big round brush to give a beautiful bounce to your locks.

#41: Beach Wavy Blonde Hair with Straight Bangs

Beach wavy blonde hair with straight bangs is one of the best looks for long face shapes. When I cut straight bangs, I tend to point cut. Doing this will create a softer edge. Choosing cute bangs will help shorten the high forehead and balance your face shape.

Long Wispy Hair with Foilayage Highlights for Long Face Shapes

#42: Long Wispy Hair with Foilayage Highlights

An easy way to keep your salon visits low-maintenance is long wispy hair paired with foilayage highlights. Adding some dimension to your color can help keep it youthful and from looking flat or dull. The wispy layers are easy to play with when styling and won’t require too much styling time!

#43: Undone Style with Curtain Bangs for Mid-Length Hair

A mid-length undone style with curtain bangs is great if you want a fuss-free routine. Keeping some length will draw your face down while the added curtain bangs highlight your cheekbones and eyes. If you have natural texture, you can get a similar result, but remember that a hot tool will most likely be needed to recreate the waves.

#44: Light Blue Choppy Pixie Cut

A choppy pixie cut is a fun and creative way to wear your hair. The goal is to lift your hair light enough to add a hint or a pastel tone to your blonde. Dyeing your hair a pastel or fun tone can be a temporary fix if you lighten your hair correctly.

#46: Dimensional Brunette Balayage on Long Wavy Hair

#47: Sun-Kissed Blonde Balayage with Beachy Waves

Ask your stylist for brighter pieces around your face for an extra sun-kissed look. Keeping the fullness around the bottom of your hair will slim oblong-shaped faces, making them appear wider.

Long Face-Framing Pieces For Long Faces

#48: Long Face-Framing Pieces

Long face-framing pieces add a voluminous look to long hair. The layering with the shape of your head adds a lot of volume, but you can take it a step further by using a large barrel iron or hot rollers. You can do a side or off-center parting for more movement and a nice frame to your face. You can blow dry with a round brush, but if you find that too difficult, air-drying and using hot rollers will be a great alternative and will last for days.

Middle-Parted Medium Layered Hairstyle for Natural Curls and Long Faces

#49: Middle-Parted Medium Layered Hairstyle for Natural Curls

A middle-parted medium layered hairstyle for natural curls gives off this cool-girl, chic vibe. The layering at the sides of your face gives off the appearance of a slimmer face. Layering natural curly hair should be done by a stylist that is well-versed in curly hair cutting. Make sure you ask to see the stylists work for curly hair like yours or even ask if they can refer you to a stylist who specializes in your hair type.

#60: Stunning Dark Copper Sleek Cut

Looking for a hairstyle that looks sophisticated yet elegant? A stunning dark copper cut consists of a one-length blunt cut and warmer rich tones that will transform your sleek appearance. For women with warmer skin complexions, a dark copper color is one of the best hair colors to have and try. Avoid this hairstyle if you feel uncomfortable showing a lot of your face.

#61: Feminine Medium-Length Internal Layers

Medium-length internal layers are perfect if you have fine hair that has difficulty holding shape. Creating movement around your eyes and chin adds instant volume and creates softness. I encourage a dry shampoo or a texture spray right at the root to create a soft lift and flexible hold. Try Hairstory Powder Dry Shampoo for that small amount of gritty hold and airiness.

#62: Cool Shoulder-Length Bob for Thin Hair

Ash brown highlights create a softer look. The more effortless and bigger the waves are, the fresher you look.

A long bob is one of the best hairstyles for long faces. This bob cut will be fabulous if you ask your hairstylist for a subtle angle and graduation. I love how the waves fall into shape easily, and the weight is properly distributed to accent the style. This look is good for women with thin faces and naturally wavy hair. Or, ladies with straight hair who want a style that easily falls into place without too much styling and is structured and defined.

#64: Beautiful Long Balayage Hairstyle

Gorgeous Ringlets at Shoulder Length for Long Faces

#73: Gorgeous Ringlets at Shoulder Length

A gorgeous ringlet curl should be at shoulder length. Because you have a longer face shape, you will want to add some width at the cheekbones. Ringlet textures with natural body in the hair are perfect for this. Ask for rounded layers that provide fullness and shape, enhancing the style where your curls lay.

#74: Perfect Balayage

If you have a blonde balayage like the one mentioned above, adding shadows can prevent excessive highlighting. This can even give your face a slightly shortened look. To finish off, adding curls or waves to your hairstyle can complete the look. It complements the style and color of your hair with your face shape.
