↓ Jump to Photo Carousel


Every face shape is unique, and when it comes to long face shapes, finding the perfect haircut can be a game-changer. Linda Miller, an experienced hair professional, offers valuable insights and advice on how to choose the ideal cut for your long face shape, accentuating your features and enhancing your natural beauty.

Understanding Your Face Shape

When it comes to long face shapes, Miller suggests opting for haircuts that add width to the sides of the face. “You want to balance the length of your face and create the illusion of a wider shape,” Miller advises. She recommends steering clear of styles that elongate your face and opting for cuts that add volume and width to the sides instead.

Choosing the Right Haircut

For those with straight hair, Miller recommends a side-swept bang or a curtain bang to create the appearance of width around the face. She also suggests adding layers to create movement and volume. If you have curly hair, Miller suggests asking your stylist for face-framing layers to add volume around the face.
