Shape and volume in short hairstyles
For long faces, the main rule is keeping the verticalfocus on the centre of the face, that is from the eyes to chin-level, but no longer. This is a very successful way to diminish the length and then you just need added shape, volume or highlighting at the sides to create the visual illusion of width at cheekbone level.

There are several ways to do all of this and have a super-trendy hairstyle for long faces, too! For example, fringes are a great way to cover up the forehead and ‘shorten’ your face shape.
Try a fashionable long fringe cut to sweep across the face from an asymmetrical side parting. By choosing an asymmetrical parting, you will break up the narrow symmetry of a long face and make one of the focal points draw the eye outwards, giving the impression of a wider face.

Short shag cuts and choppy layers
Amongst the latest trends, you have a fabulous choice of suitable styles including the short bob cuts and the popular pixie cut. The short shag is definitely one of the winners in this year’s popularity stakes and it’s perfect for adding side volume with a trendy, short hairstyle for a long face.
Choppy layers and uneven lengths with almost ragged-looking tips are a strong trend, too, giving a futuristic unconventional look.

Retro flicked-up look
One of the best retro-styles to add width is the short bob with flicked-up sides. And by adding lighter balayage colour accents or highlights to accentuate the sides, you can make your hair appear even thicker at that point.

On fine or thin hair that lacks natural volume, the layered bob or pixie are always flattering and by fluffing out or curling the sides, you can add the width that will balance out the length of your face very effectively.
