Face Shape: Oblong + Rectangle

This face shape:

  • Typically referred to as "long" faces
  • Face is longer than it is wide
  • Oblong have a round chin and jawline
  • Rectangle has a squared-off angular jaw
  • Face gets more angled towards the chin
  • The chin is prominent and finishes into a point


  • Mid-length and longer styles tend to work best
  • Look for styles with less volume on top, but more volume on the sides
  • Layers that start around the cheekbones can help add dimension
  • All-over curls and waves can help balance out length
