If you have a long or oblong face shape, you join many Hollywood beauties such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler and Kelly Rowland to name a few. Just like any other face shape, oblongs have certain issues that they need to deal with when it comes to their hair. Oblong faces are more long than they are wide, and typically have a narrow appearance to them. Since this shape is predominantly long, adding width and minimizing anything that can pull the face down should be avoided, and you will know that it can present some challenges when it comes to finding the right hairstyle. As an oblong, you will want to reduce any excess length in your face and add some bulk and body to add width. You may also have to contend with a high forehead and prominent chin, which are common features with this face shape.
Having lots of hair is not a problem. You can reduce high density hair by using techniques like razor cutting or slicing (not recommended on curly hair). If your hair is curly, chemical straightening will take away about 50% of your hair density.
You are lucky! From a hairstyling point of view, it means that you should always be able to change your hairstyles by adjusting the weight distribution. In plain English, you can thin out your hair by means of razor cutting, slicing, etc, or make it appear thicker by growing certain layers longer.
