A Guide to Different Hair Color & Dye

Colors are a great way to add dazzle to your natural hair, and when thinking of coloring your hair, do keep in mind that you may want to consult with a professional stylist about your plan before proceeding. If you want to do it yourself, make sure to read the labels and warning that comes with the products you choose. This is the best way to avoid a color disaster. In this article we are breaking down each type of hair color and dye to help you make the best decision for your look.

1. Temporary Hair Color. Temporary hair color works in a much simpler way than other permanent coloring treatments do. It adds temporary coat to the hair shaft, but does not stain it. The hair color penetrate your hairs outer cuticle to gain access to the hair cortex. They last for about 5-6 weeks depending on how porous your strands are, it might fade sooner or later and tend to fade progressively. Temporary colors don’t contain bleach so they cannot lighten your natural shade. Unlike wash-out, temporary colors and dyes give you a more natural look and are easier to use. You can apply temporary color and dyes directly from the applicator as they don’t have to be mixed. If your not happy with the color you can easily wash it out. Temporary hair color and dyes fade with shampooing and exposure to the wind. So they need to be frequently reapplied, which can be also damaging. And due to frequent overlapping, temporary colors can leave you with darker ends and lighter roots. Since you cannot lighten with temporary colors, this is great for testing out a new subtle look because it only lasts until your next shampoo.

2. Semi-Permanent Hair Color. Semi-permanent hair color is a gentle alternative to permanent hair dye with a shorter lifespan. Unlike most permanent formulas, semi-permanent hair color doesn’t contain ammonia or peroxide. So it doesn’t require any development or pre-mixing, you can also apply it straight into your hair from the applicator. It’s considered semi-permanent because it gradually fades out after 6-8 washes, depends on how porous your hair is. Some temporary and semi-permanent hair colors does not lighten hair, since it does not contain ammonia or peroxide and it does not penetrate in the hair cortex, so if you have fragile strands you will find this solution doesn’t cause damage while you’ll notice slight fading with each wash.

3. Demi-Permanent Hair Color. Same with temporary and semi-permanent, Demi-permanent hair color contains no ammonia and deposits only. It is mixed with low volume developer, which is great for blending gray, enhancing natural color, refreshing color, toning highlights or for corrective color. Not to be confuse with semi-permanent, Demi-permanent is designed to enhance natural or previously color treated hair. Like the types mentioned above, it won’t lighten hair or remove the hairs natural pigments. Another benefit of Demi-permanent hair color is that the results are typically less homogenous than with permanent. In other words, roots regrowth may be less noticeable than with permanent, which changes the pigment entirely. Again, like temporary and semi-permanent, Demi-permanent hair color won’t lighten or remove the hairs natural pigment.

4. Permanent Hair Color. This is the best option for anyone looking to make a dramatic change. This type of hair color penetrates the hairs cuticle to change the natural pigment. For this reason, permanent is the best option for lightening or covering grays. Unlike temporary types of colors listed above, permanent hair color doesn’t wash out, it only grows out. If you want to go three shades lighter or darker, permanent hair color is your best choice. Permanent hair color contains ammonia or hydrogen peroxide. The chemical lift up cuticle layer of the hair to gain access to and deposit color pigments into the inner section of the hair cortex. The color may fade a little overtime however it will not wash out entirely. Permanent hair color covers gray hair very well and it comes with a wide range of available colors in the supermarket. Permanent hair colors weakens hair fiber so it’s important to retain moisture and have to stay on top of their deep conditioning treatments.

5. Highlights Hair Color. Hair highlighting is fun and creative way to experiment with colors and shades in a variety of styles. It offers a good way to refresh your look and update your hair color without having to dye your whole head. Highlighting your hair can cause breakage if not applied properly and may need extra care and attention to your hair, so don’t forget to condition and moisturize your hair after the application. Highlights are beautiful if you get someone who knows how to weave the highlights to look natural and not all stylist do great highlighting. Ombre and Balayage is a highlight types of color and it’s the easiest color treatment to maintain. You can’t see your roots as much when your hair grows out because it’s not all over color, and you don’t have to touch up your hair as often. So keep an eye on the highlights of people you meet and then ask your salon specialist to give it a try on you next time.

How To Get Curly Hair without a Perm

Hair that’s curly, bouncy, and attention getting is surprisingly easy to achieve with a rag and foam curlers, flat and curling iron or even just scrunching your hair. You can create a signature look, or magnify the glam factor for that special occasions. The good news is you’re in the right place to get your easiest, healthiest hair routine ever. It also gives your locks a healthy break from harmful chemicals.

1. Using a Rag Curlers. To do so, take a comb and make a parting from the top of the head straight down to behind one ear. Comb all the hair in the first section straight down and grip the ends tightly. Take a rag and center it right over the ends of the hair. Begin rolling the ends around the rag, making sure to secure them down. The trick is to roll them around once, then roll right over them again so that they are rolled in tightly. Keep rolling the hair around the rag until you can’t roll any further.

2. Using Foam Curlers. To do so, start with clean hair and comb your hair into at least four sections. For a fuller, softer curls with more of a wave, roll the curlers horizontally. To roll them vertically, hold a section of your hair straight out from your head at a 90 degree angle. Wrap the ends of your hair around the roller and continue rolling the curler in toward your scalp. You may want to do this around bedtime so that there will be plenty of time overnight for your rolled tresses to dry completely.

3. Using a Curling Iron. We recommend practicing with the curling iron or flat iron in the off position. It seems silly. But this will allow you to practice these curling hair techniques without burning. It is best to start all the style with dry, clean, damp hair, so cleanse and condition your hair before doing so. For tighter curls, a small barreled iron is your best bet. For looser waves, try a large barreled iron. If using tapered wands, the large end work best for loose, relaxed curls, while the smaller tip works for tight and springy curls.

4. Using Flat Iron. Curling hair with a straightener can create full, bouncy curls that won’t look like ringlets. It takes a little practice, but once you get the technique down, you will look amazing and practically red-carpet ready. To curl with your straightener, separate your hair into layers, then take a small section of hair and clamp down with the straightener. Rotate the curling iron so your hair makes a U-shape, then slowly slide the straightener down the length of your hair to create a basic curl. Make sure to start with completely clean and dry hair. Wet hair won’t curl at all and damp hair won’t curl as well, even if you have one of those magical wet to dry hair straighteners.

5. Scrunching Your Hair. To do so, use gel or glaze on thick hair and foam or mousse on thin hair. Pick up individual sections of hair, squeeze the strands between your fingers, and crumple the ends of the strand up toward your roots. Grabbing larger sections will result in larger curls, smaller sections will results in smaller curls. This scrunching method will create curls, bends, and volume in your hair.

How To Know Your Face Shape

No matter what your face shape, there are hairstyles, glasses, hats and makeup techniques that bring out the best in each. In order to work out which face shape you have, you need to find out which parts are long, which ones are short or whether they’re actually all the same. The FOREHEAD is a good place to start. Pull the tape measure from the peak of one eyebrow arch to the peak of the opposite arch. Second is the CHEEKBONES, measure across your upper cheeks, starting and ending at the sharp bump below the outer corner of each eye. And, the third one is the JAWLINE, measure your jaw across your face at its widest point (about an inch down from your ears).

1. An OVAL FACE SHAPE is a longer version of the round face. Your chin still stays rounded, but the length of your face is more than the width. If you think your face shape is oblong but tapers slightly from forehead to jaw, you may have an oval shape face. Oval faces tend to be about one and half times longer than they are wide.

2. The SQUARE FACE SHAPE has a square jaw and minimal curves. Your forehead, cheekbones and jaw are about equal width. Some squares have faces that are as wide as they are long, while others are longer and more rectangular in shape. If you have a square face, the side of your face are straight and your jawline is slightly angled with a very minimal curve. If your jaw is the widest part of your face, you have a square face shape.

3. A ROUND FACE SHAPE is like a square shaped face with softer angles. The sides of your face curve slightly outward instead of being straight. Your chin is rounded and your cheekbones are the widest part of your face. Look for width across the cheekbones to identify a round face. Round faces are widest across the cheekbones with rounder forehead and jawline. Face shapes that are widest at the cheekbones are typically a round face shape, but the length of your face also come into play with a round face shape, the measurement of width and length are basically equal.

4. The DIAMOND FACE SHAPE have a narrow jawline and forehead that are about the same width. This is what sets a diamond face from an oval face. Your hairline is narrower and taper just like your jawline. The significant difference between a diamond face and a heart shape face is the hairline. Your cheekbones are high and pointed. If you’re a diamond, then you’ll have a narrow forehead and a narrow chin that are about the same width the cheekbones are the widest point of the face and the chin is often pointy. But it’s the hairline that is the telltale sign on this face shape, it’s narrow than on any of the other seven types.

5. If your chin is pointed and your forehead is the widest part of your face, you have a HEART SHAPE FACE. Some people may have a widow’s peak at their hairline, but you can still have a heart shape face without one picture an upside down triangle instead. If you have a heart shape face, your base structure will feature a broad forehead and cheekbones with a narrow jawline and chin. A person with a heart shape face will have a long and pointed jawline with the chin being the smallest point of their faces.

6. A PEAR SHAPE FACE means that the widest points of your jaw are slightly wider than the widest points of your hairline. The pear shape face features a forehead that is narrower than the jawline, it’s an inversion of the heart shape. The face tapers inward from your jawline up to your forehead. Also known as the triangle face shape.

7. An OBLONG FACE SHAPE often confuse for the oval face, though an oblong face will have a longer shape that is not as wide as oval, often with a narrow chin. Oblong or “Rectangular” as it is sometimes called are similar to oval and square face shape faces. Also known as “Long” face shape is often confuse for oval face shape. Quite simply, this face shape is longer than it is wide. People with an oblong face could have a long chin and forehead. They typical don’t have a full cheek and their forehead, jaw and cheeks are equal in width.

And now that you know yours, it will be that much easier to make those glasses, hats, hairstyle and makeup choices. Thank you for reading our article.

A Simple Guide To Makeup

The makeup world is so immerse and has so many tricks and secrets, getting lost in it is so easy. That is the reason why we created a simple makeup guide tutorials to help you work out what your perfect make up would be and how to look amazing with your face shape. Let’s start with an Oval-shape face.

1. An oval face doesn’t need much contouring, but there are couple of things you can do to add a little definition to your face. Since this is considered a perfect shape you need to stay loyal to your normal foundation. Most of the makeup tips for oval faces sometimes need you to change the color of your foundation. Focus only on one features, with a smoky eyes look, keep your lip color neutral, and with a glossy red lip, stick with brown eye shadow, one coat of mascara and a natural liner. If you want to make your face appear a little bit shorter and thinner, you can apply foundation along your jaw one shade darker than your natural skin color. Do contouring with bronzer and enhance your eyes. Keep the natural arch of your brow and plump up your cheeks, lip gloss and bring out your best features.

2. The round-shape face. Contour works really well for round face shape as it can help add definition and structure to your curved features. Go two shades darker than your normal foundation. The general rule to follow is the classic three contour. This means you should start by contouring along the outer edges of your forehead, at your temples, and under your cheekbones. Continue the contour around the jawline, avoiding the chin. By leaving the chin free of contour, it’ll help to add more length to your face, creating the illusion of a longer, more oval face shape. Apply highlighting powder down the bridges of the nose, at the center of the forehead and just a touch on the chin, to add length to a round face. To create illusion of a more sculpted face, sweep bronzer along the temples, in the hollow of the cheeks and along the jawline. Apply your favorite lipstick to your lips to complete your perfect look!

3. The square-shape face. If you have a square-shape face, your makeup should aim to round out your jawline for a softer look. To soften the hard angles and to create a more oval appearance you need to contour the corner of your face. By using shading product like bronzer or a dark foundation you can blend upward on the side of your jaw as well as on the sides of the forehead downward to the temple to soften the corners. Under the tip of your chin blending towards your ears and slightly upward toward your mount to soften the line. To draw attention to your cheekbones use a tawny blush in the hollow of your cheeks, don’t bring the blush too high, then blush over a softer shade of blush over the apples of your cheeks and cheekbones. Blend well so you don’t see sharp lines. Apply dramatic lip color and a plump pout to draw attention to your lips not on your jaw. Also add the same bronzer to just the bottom of the chin to draw attention away from your chiseled jaw. The best makeup tips for square-shaped face include contour highlighting your forehead, chin, bridge of the nose and your cheekbones. You’re applying highlight where light naturally hits your face.

4. The diamond-shape face. With a diamond-shape face, you may want to reduce the width around the cheekbone line. To do so, use two shades of foundations, one light and one darker. You can apply darker foundation to areas you want to minimize outside of the cheekbones, and apply the lighter foundation to the area you want to emphasize your chin and forehead. Soften your chin by applying dark shade foundation to just the tip of your chin to reduce its pointy appearance and create the illusion of a wider jaw. Do not apply your blush in the hollows underneath your cheekbones, but on the apples of your cheeks instead. To widen the appearance of your forehead, your brows should be groomed slightly apart from center and follow your natural brow line. Do not create a dramatic arch. This will help your eyes and your forehead appear a little wider. Stick to your natural lip line when applying your lip liner. You don’t want your lips to appear too wide, as this may make your chin look even thinner.

5. The heart-shape face. Like oval face, heart-shape face has high cheekbones. The only thing to avoid is too much blush because that area of the face is already pronounce. Round out your chin for highlighting, use foundation that is lighter than your normal foundation. Apply the product in the center of your forehead and above your cheekbones. You can add depth and width to the chin area with contouring makeup. Apply highlighter or light concealer lengthwise on the chin and along your jawline and blend with a sponge. This will broaden the appearance of your chin and make it appear a little rounder. With a heart-shaped go for a natural brow, eyebrows should be thick with a natural arch that is relatively straight. This will help the forehead appear a little bit thinner and balance out the face shape.

6. The pear-shape face. A pear-shape face is a narrow forehead and a jawline that is usually wider and stronger. The ultimate goal with this shape is to narrow down the lower half of the face, to make it look more oval and even. There are two simple ideals that come up when you’re contouring the cheeks. If a contour from your ear and towards your nose, you will shorten your face and lift the cheekbones. For a pear-shape face, contouring from your ear and towards the corner of your lips is a much better option. It will elongate your face slightly and give you the most natural look you can get. To create a cohesive and well-blended natural look, apply a small amount of product right under your jawline and blend down your neck slightly. That way your face will look narrower. Once you’ve applied and blended all your contours, go for blush. Pick a shade that will complements your complexion. Apply the blush in the area between your contour and your highlight which you apply last. Blend well and your done.

7. The oblong-shape face. A well-powered face is essential for contouring an oblong face to make it appear more equally proportion. Your objective is to create the appearance of the ideal oval face, making your face both shorter and broader. Use a darker pressed powder or a matte bronzer along the hairline at the top of the forehead the bottom of the chin will help the face appear slightly shorter. Apply bronzer under the cheekbones in the hollow and blend it up toward the hairline to make the face appear broader. To really put focus on the cheeks, you need to apply blush just to the apples with a fluffy brush in a circular motion. Apply a light highlighter or illuminating powder to the very highest points of the cheeks to finish widening the appearance of the face. You can also extend the eyebrows outward your temples to soften the angular features. Play with your eyes by experimenting with cat eye, bold eyeshadow color and dramatic lashes. By putting the emphasis on your beautiful features, you can take away from an irregular oblong face shape.

Kaya sa artikulong ito binuo namin ang pinakabagay na mga gupit para sa iba’t-ibang hugis mukha ng mga lalaki).

1. The ROUND FACE-SHAPE. A round face shape can sometimes be lacking in features and you can create definition through sharp layers and textures. A round face shape can be considered the perfect canvas as it can benefit from extreme styles. Try to choose a hairstyle with height and volume on top can add length to the face with tight back and sides and go for hard textured cut, a Humble quiff, Crew cut and Mohawk is a great way to add height to your face. Avoid haircut that add length to the back and sides and flatten the top, because they make the face look rounder.

(Ang hugis bilog na mukha ay maaaring minsay kulang sa mga tampok at maaari kang lumikha ng kahulugan sa pamamagitan ng matalim na mga layer at mga texture.

Iwasan ang gupit na magdagdag ng haba sa likod at gilid at patagin ang tuktok, dahil ginagawa nitong mas bilog ang iyong mukha).

2. The OVAL FACE-SHAPE. With oval face shape you have the advantage of flaunting a wide range of hairstyles that include the long, short and a combination of both. An oval face has the rare privilege to be free in experimenting a variety of style. A classic short back and sides with a little length on top is a good choice, while texture and volume on top sharpen the face. You can go with fade Pompadour, textured Quiff and classic Taper. Choosing the right hairstyle for oval face will need a little bit of thinking because selecting random hairstyle can make you look clumsy. Do not choose hairstyle that has the forehead covered with bangs and fridges as this could make your face rounder.

(Sa pamamagitan ng hugis-itlog na mukha mayroon kang kalamangan sa pagpapalaganap ng malawak na hanay ng mga hairstyles pareho ang mahaba, maikli at kombinasyon ng pareho. Ang hugis-itlog na mukha ay may bihirang pribilehiyo na maging malaya sa pag-eksperimento sa iba’t ibang estilo. Ang isang klasikong maikling likod at gilid na may isang maliit na haba sa tuktok ay isang mahusay na pagpipilian, habang ang texture at dami sa itaas para patalasin ang mukha. Pumili ng Fade pompadour, Textured quiff at Classic taper. Ang pagpili ng tamang hairstyle para sa hugis-itlog na mukha ay kailangan ng kaunting pag-iisip sapagkat ang pagpili ng random na hairstyle ay maaaring gumawa ng malamyang hitsura. Huwag pumili ng hairstyle na ang noo ay nasasakop ng mga bangs at fridges dahil maaari mas bumilog ang iyong mukha).

3. The SQUARE FACE-SHAPE. With it’s angular and masculine features, a square face can easily impress with neat and tight cuts. Extremely short styles like Buzz cuts can evoke self discipline yet a little length on top can provide some casual texture to break away from an overbearing military look. Deep side parts and swept back styles can be paired with tight fades and an Undercut to provide textured layering and bring out those chiseled features. Square face shape have the luxury of being able to enjoy most hairstyle. Just avoid precision defined hairline if your hair is receding.

(Gamit ang mga anggular at panlalaking tampok, ang isang parisukat na mukha ay madaling mapabilib sa masinop at mahigpit na pagbabawas. Ang sobrang ikling mga estilo tulad ng Buzz cut ay maaaring pukawin ang disiplina sa sarili ngunit ang isang maliit na haba sa itaas ay maaaring magbigay ng ilang kaswal na pagkakayari upang lumayo mula sa mapanupil na hitsurang militar. Ang mga malalalim na bahagi at ang mga estilo ng pag-uli ay maaaring ipares sa Tight fades at Undercut upang magbigay ng texture layering at ilabas ang mga tampok na pinaikot. Ang hugis parisukat na mukha ay may luhong matamasa ang karamihang mga hairstyle. Basta iwasan magkagay ng mga linya sa hairline kung ang iyong buhok ay manipis).

4. The DIAMOND FACE-SHAPE. With already strong cheekbones, the objective is to balance the overall structure by adding build to the forehead and chin. Go with plenty of volume on top with balance out the proportions and keeping a classic shorter hairline in the front reveals the forehead. Favoring scissors cuts will ensure softer contours and layers to avoid an overly geometric result. Avoid aggressive cuts that further sharpen features, short sides risk of enlarging the ears due to strong cheekbones. Longer hair generally works well with a diamond shape as rounder volume doesn’t risk undermining existing features.

5. The HEART FACE-SHAPE. With a rounder forehead set against a small chin, the objective is to redistribute these proportions. Mid length and windswept styles help frame the forehead, which give it a narrower quality. Remember Quiff, Pompadour, Side Part and Slicked Back. Styling is best achieved with blow drying or naturally rather than relying on product to make sure that texture remains soft rather than angular. Light volume controlled sides can either be created with letting the hair grow out on the sides or a front fringe that falls across the forehead. A side part with a fringe can soften the wide forehead and can add a light offset aspect. It’s best to avoid tight cuts on the sides as they risk only increasing the width of the forehead and leaving the jawline bare.

6. The PEAR FACE-SHAPE. With it’s prominent jawline but otherwise narrow forehead, do use plenty of length and volume on top. Reveal the forehead with a swept back quiff of side part and be generous with texture. Some softness can be retained around the back and sides. However, a lack of volume on top runs the risk of amplifying the jawline. In this case, texture is recommended to ensure the presence of bulk. A Crew cut and Pompadour will look good. Just avoid too much softness on top and high fades, which risk narrowing the forehead even further.

7. The OBLONG FACE-SHAPE. With it’s tall structure but otherwise balance feature, the key to showcasing an oblong face is in controlling the hair’s proportions. Although most styles work well, styles should focus on the sides or across the forehead while staying relatively flat on top. A slicked back undercut, Comb over fade, Side part and French Crop haircut is a good choice. A style that uses gravity to let the hair fall naturally will provide sufficient volume and accentuate the forehead width without elongating it’s length. Avoid extreme hairstyle, too tight back and sides and too much height or length on top. Aside from anything which add length on top, men with long faces can pull off any cut and style.

How To Get The Right Haircut For Women

The right haircut should accentuate your features while making your face shape look balanced. Choosing the perfect haircut can be difficult but should not be daunting. And while we think you should get whatever haircut you want. Here we rounded up the best short, medium and long haircuts for every face shape.

1. An OVAL FACE SHAPE is a longer version of the round face. Your chin still stays rounded, but the length of your face is more than the width. Oval face shaped have the benefit of being balance, which means that virtually any hairstyle or haircut will work. Bangs that are side swept are the most flattering, but you also have to keep in mind that the bangs should not be too heavy because this can still cover up too much of your face. The oval face shape has long been regarded as the ideal face shape, simply because it’s proportions and balance allow it to pull off practically any haircut and hairstyle look with ease.

2. The SQUARE FACE SHAPE has a square jaw and minimal curves. Your forehead, cheekbones and jaw are about equal width. Some squares have faces that are as wide as they are long, while others are longer and more rectangular in shape. To balance this face shape, choose hairstyles that soften the jawline and compliments your bone structure. Consider a side parted style, which will offset the squareness. Long and airy layers can also be flattering and will help to disguise the sharp angles of your face. If you like a cropped length, consider a short layered Bob. But remember to add side swept bangs, which will draw attention to your cheekbones instead of your jawline.

3. A ROUND FACE SHAPE is like a square shaped face with softer angles. The sides of your face curve slightly outward instead of being straight. Your chin is rounded and your cheekbones are the widest part of your face. The Long Bob is the ideal length for round faces. It is usually cut an inch or two longer that the jawline and flatters a round face because of the length. Choppy layers through the back and bottom of your hair is another good option as a round face hairstyle. Soft curls on the other hand look great with a round face but curls need to be below the chin line. Curly hair looks a bit heavy if left short as it adds width to the face. Straight blunt bangs are definitely not good for a round face as those will accentuate the width of your face making it look rounder, therefore side bangs that blend down into your hair is a great option to make your face seem longer rather than wider.

4. The DIAMOND FACE SHAPE have a narrow jawline and forehead that are about the same width. This is what sets a diamond face from an oval face. Your hairline is narrower and taper just like your jawline. The significant difference between a diamond face and a heart shape face is the hairline. Your cheekbones are high and pointed. Ladies with diamond face shapes should aim to soften their sharp angles and balance their cheekbones. For a soft look, consider a mid or long layered cut worn with tousled waves and a deep side part. If you want to widen the appearance of your jaw, on the other hand, a chin length Bob will work best. Also try a pulled back ponytail for a look that will show off your cheekbones while also widening the appearance of your forehead.

5. If your chin is pointed and your forehead is the widest part of your face, you have a HEART SHAPE FACE. Some people may have a widow’s peak at their hairline, but you can still have a heart shape face without one picture an upside down triangle instead. If you have a heart shape face, your base structure will feature a broad forehead and cheekbones with a narrow jawline and chin. To aim balance on your face you need a cut that decreases your brow width and increases the width of the lower half of your face. A long side swept cut will disguise part of your forehead while drawing eyes down to the bottom of your face. You can also pair this cut with waves or curls starting below the ear to even out your angle jaw. A side parted pixie cut with textured ends can also appear gorgeous on a heart face shape, as well as Bob and lob, which will ensure fullness around your jaw.

6. A PEAR SHAPE FACE means that the widest points of your jaw are slightly wider than the widest points of your hairline. Although it’s a beautiful shape the pear shape face can be a difficult one if you don’t know which styles are most flattering. The lighter the top knot is e wider the jaw will appear. The pear shape face is also referred to as TRIANGULAR and features a distinctly narrow forehead and the jaw line seems to flare out to give a wider look. Layered cut, waves or curls, soft and romantic chignons, round fringes or curtain bangs around your face work really well. Shag styles is also ideal. If you have a very narrow forehead diamond like, go for a fringe (bangs), either side swept or blunter cut if your face isn’t too short.

7. An OBLONG FACE SHAPE often confuse for the oval face, though an oblong face will have a longer shape that is not as wide as oval, often with a narrow chin. An oblong face requires haircut that will help to flatter and minimize its long length and narrow features. Hairstyles that are short to medium in length with longer top layers without height are best suited such as wedge and graduated Bob cuts. Chin and shoulder length looks that turn under also work very well to add width and straight across bangs with side parts work best. Layered styles in medium and long lengths that add body in with wavy and curly textures are great for softening the straight long lines of oblong face shape.
