One of the best parts about wearing hair extensions is getting to personalize your new long locks. There are so many ways to wear long hair, and playing around with some styles until you find your “signature” look is both fun and liberating. But if you need help formulating a place to start, take your face shape as a guide. Here, we’ve outlined some classic long haircuts you can show your stylist to achieve that natural, face-flattering frame.
The look: Bombshell blowout
Otherwise known as the “Victoria’s Secret look,” this blowout style volumizes hair beginning at the roots, which adds length to round face shapes. It also produces nice undulating waves, which naturally draw attention away from the curves of the face to the curves of the hair.
The look: Center-part and curtain bangs
A center part is an easy way to center attention on the length of the face, rather than the width or the angles. Gently sloping curtain bangs, or a well-maintained layered face frame, narrow the appearance of the forehead and emphasize the cheeks, which can make them look like they’re higher on the face.
The look: Swooping side part
Balance the prominence of a regal forehead (without hiding the forehead altogether) by placing hair in a deep side part and allowing the hair to plunge down across one eyebrow. This style makes the eyes and cheekbones the center of attention, while still letting the forehead show off a little.
The look: Effortless bangs
Bangs disguise the length of the face while placing attention squarely on the eyes. They also add some drama to otherwise round features for a dynamic look that needs little-to-no daily maintenance (depending on your hair texture).
The look: Soft curls
Balance your striking rectangular angles with soft and abundant curls. You’ll still have that whole eye-catching, mature thing going on, but it’ll be less editorial and more wearable and down-to-earth. Plus, it’s easy to play it up for more formal settings, too.
The look: Sleek and straight
Sharp and dainty diamond faces can be easily over-complicated with elaborate hairstyles. Let your facial features stand out by wearing your hair in a complementary sleek and classy straight style. It’ll also give you the opportunity to flaunt bolder makeup looks!
