Many women have dreamed of long hair since childhood. But with this face shape, it is probably not worth the effort...
For many women, long hair is the absolute beauty ideal, so that with short hair they would not even feel feminine. However, getting long hair - apart from wigs, extensions, etc. - usually requires a lot of patience and care. Is it even worth it? According to hairdressers, having a face shape is a wasted effort.
Do you know the shape of your face? Hairdressers divide faces into the categories oval, long, square, round, diamond-shaped, and heart-shaped before a haircut. Hairdressers would advise against long hair if you have a long, narrow face. This goes in the direction of the oval but is a little more elongated. The length of the face is significantly greater than the width.
The reason for this is that long and, above all, straight hair visually lengthen the face again. In addition, a straight pony is not a good idea with a narrow, long face, says the hairdresser Marco Pelusi. The consequence of all this is that it makes the wearer look monotonous and even older. With long, straight hair, nothing distracts from the long face, which can quickly appear bland. After all, you don't want to seem like you have a long face all the time, do you?
Pelusi always recommends shorter cuts for long, narrow face shapes. Shoulder-length hairstyles between the chin and shoulders look great on narrow faces. If you don't want to part with your long mane, after all, you should style it as lively as possible. Steps, as well as waves and curls, provide more dynamism and volume. Side bangs also visually shorten the face and are therefore a good choice for long face shapes.
All in all, what you want to do with your hair is of course your personal choice. The main thing is that you feel good!
