Hairstyles for Oblong Faces

If you want to dress your face, the goal is to make your face appear oval, shorter and broader. Short to medium length hair with bangs will cover your forehead & shorten your face. To make your face look broader, you can add fullness to the side using sideburns. Layers, wavy, & curls hair can make your straight face look soft & smooth.
