Transcript:Tips on How to Wear Straight Hair With a Long Face

Hi! My name is Tye Coe for About.com. I am a celebrity hair, makeup and fashion stylist. Today, we are at the wonderful BeSu Salon and Day Spa here in New York City, and I am going to give you tips on how to wear straight hair if you have a long face.

Style Hair for Long Face

If you have a long face, one thing that you do not want to do is wear your hair going back off of your face. And another thing you do not want to do is wear your hair with a center part. So a great way you can wear your hair, if you have a long face, is start with a side parting; a diagonal part would be best. Once you have your diagonal part in place, you can take your flat iron and the front section you are going to straighten and slightly curl at the bottom. Same thing with the other side; just take your section and slightly curl at the bottom. That is just going to add a little softness to the straight hair and soften out your long face. Once you have done that, you can finish the style with a bit of hairspray, keeping your diagonal part. So there are some tips for wearing straight hair with a long face.
