Hairstyles for Men with Oblong Faces

An oblong face is defined as one that is significantly taller than it is wide. It is characteristic of a high, forehead and a narrow chin. Your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are straight, almost the same width.

Men who have oblong faces generally want to encourage an oval look, enhancing width and minimizing length. This can be accomplished with a short or medium-length style that covers the forehead with bangs and gives you some volume around the ears. Add fullness to your appearance with sideburns and waves, curls, or layers around the sides. Avoid wearing your hair too long, as it will enhance the appearance of length. Also, avoid styles that are cut too close to the scalp. If you part your hair, you should probably go with a side part; a middle part will add too much length to your face.
