Transcript:Tips for Shoulder-Length Hair and a Long FaceHi! My name is Tye Coe for About.com. Today, we are at the fabulous BeSu Salon and Day Spa here in New York City, and I am going to give you some tips on styling shoulder-length hair for a long face.
Don'ts for Hair Styles for Long FacesSo, one thing you want to remember in styling your hair if you have a long face is you do not want to wear it back away from your face, because it will expose it and make it appear longer. Another tip: do not create too much volume in the crown on the top of your head, because it will also make your face appear longer. One of the best styles, if you have a long face, is starting with a deep, angled part. If you part your hair at an angle, it will help with cutting the length of your face, and then we can style it going back away from the face.
Styling Shoulder-Length Hair for a Long FaceOne great way to do that is to add a few curling iron curls going back away from the face. You then want to do your styling by creating any volume through the sides to kind of balance out the length of your face. The key thing to remember in creating your style for a long face is making sure you cut the front forehead area with an angle and then creating the volume on the sides. We are going to finish this style off with a bit of hairspray. And these are a few tips on styling shoulder-length hair if you have a long face.
