If you have an oblong shaped face, your face is long and thin, often with a chin that tends to look pointed. This shape looks best with a low side part and a sweep of hair brushed across the forehead and secured with a comb. The look of volume with an asymmetric flow of hair to one side widens your face and reduces length. Straight-falling bangs or bangs blended with the sides of your hair shorten the overall face length. Your best hair length reaches to the middle of the neck. Look for volume with curly or wavy styles that are very becoming, giving you the illusion of balanced width.
