Often, women with long faces are too concerned about it, and this causes them to become insecure about not just their faces but their whole body. While the truth is that beauty does not have a definition and long faces look just as pretty as round or flat faces, there are still people who wish they could do something about this. Well then, worry not. The list below has 40 different hairstyles that are suited for long faces, and each of them is sure to flatter the original beauty of your face regardless of its shape or size.
1. Medium Length Hair
It is a great hairstyle that is suitable for those who have a long face. The hair has been maintained at a medium length falling just around the shoulders, and the hair has been cut in many wavy layers. The hair has been middle-parted to both sides and then styled by cutting shorter layers on the front and much longer layers on the back. You can also see that blonde highlights have been painted on these front layers. They really help to frame the face, and so it will most definitely make your long face look attractive.
2. Long Wavy Blonde Hair
The hair has been maintained at a long length and cut in many layers. Although all the layers of the hair are quite long enough, the ones on the front are notably shorter. The hair has been neatly side-parted, and you can see that the layers on the front have been styled in a similar way to that of deep side bangs. They cover a large portion of the forehead and fall in beautiful layers on the front of the face itself. The golden blonde look only makes this style more amazing.
3. Long Hair In Layers
Long hair really looks the best on those who have very long faces as it helps to really frame the face beautifully. In this style here, the hair has been neatly middle-parted to both the sides and the hair has been cut in step by step layer cut, where a section of the hair on the front is in short layers, the next section is in more long layers, and finally all of the hair below has been maintained at that length itself but with some additional layering also done.
4. Deeply Side-Parted Hair
This is a perfect hairstyle for those who have long, straight hair. At least medium length hair is required if you want to flaunt it with style since, with shorter hair, you cannot have such long layers on the front. The hair has been maintained at a sleek and straight style, and the hair has been parted to the side similar to that of long side bangs. The long layers on the front fall neatly in the area around the cheekbones, and thus it really helps to accentuate your jawline.
5. Middle Parted Shag Style
The shag hairstyle will also look great when paired with long layers to make your face look more attractive. The hair has been maintained at a medium length itself, but the layers on the front have been cut very long, so the entire hair also looks quite long enough. You can choose to get your hair cropped in the shag hairstyle, which is also quite popular these days. And to make the look more attractive, you can go for blonde highlights on the front layers of the hair.
6. Middle Parted Wavy Hair
This hairstyle just looks simply amazing. Combine it with a killer outfit and minimal makeup, and you can be sure that you’ll be the center of attraction. The hairstyle done here is one of the most simple ones, and you can get it done quite easily too, without spending much time on it. The dark locks of black hair have been slickly middle-parted to both sides. And instead of leaving them on the front of the face as layers, it has been tucked in behind both the ears, thus giving a very effortless look.
7. Layered Cut With Front Bangs
Bangs have this ability to entirely change up the shape of your face and give in some much-needed definition to it. This hairstyle, therefore, will really suit those who have long faces and only make them look prettier. The hair has been cut in an angled layered cut, and on the front, it has been cropped with long bangs that begin from the middle of the head itself. They cover the entire forehead, and the rest of the hair also falls in a perfect shape around the face.
8. Long Hair With Bump Style
Well, this is another cool hairstyle that you can try out if you have long hair.

Such a hairstyle will surely town down any uneven shape of the face and make it look more shaped and structured.
9. Short Hair With Front Bangs
The bangs are a trendy hairstyle and as seen here in this one, they have been beautifully adapted into this basic layer cut hairstyle. The hair isn’t that long and is maintained at shoulder length.

The first thing to always remember is that beauty isn’t confined to any particular notion or standard and that it’s definition changes. This applies to every case, even your face and your body. Every single person is unique from the other, so we should try to accept our flaws and flaunt our best features rather than striving for perfection, which seems to be the only thing people are running after in this era of social media. A long face is never a problem or ugly thing, and there are many hairstyles that you can try out on your long face and still look gorgeous.
