Long Bob Haircuts That Flatter Every Face Shape
Deep Side Part with Romantic Curls
A deep side part works with any face shape, and big, tumbling curls will soften a square or diamond face shape.
The Lightest Sombré
Sombré, or subtle ombré, is a new technique that seamlessly blends lighter and darker colors. These barely-there highlights are perfect for spring and summer.
All One Length
Because too many layers can overwhelm a slimmer face and add width to wider faces, any face shape can benefit from a simple one-length cut. Blunt ends are popular right now, and the fresh-faced, modern feel of a blunt cut might be the spring cleanup your hair needs.
If you haven’t heard, there’s a modern shag haircut taking over salons, and lucky for us, anyone can rock it. Long, shaggy fringe will slim round faces and soften sharper face shapes.
A cut that’s slightly longer in the front than the back will bring the eyes forward and slim the face. A simple tweak like this can make a big impact without an entirely new cut, and it’s easy to grow out.
If you have thin hair, adding some stacked layers will give you a little oomph. Keeping a side part will flatter any face shape, but adjust the amount of layers to fit yours. If you have a slimmer face, you can add more layers and volume, but rounder faces should stick to long layers for a lengthening effect.
Romantic, vintage, and endlessly flattering, curled-under styles are making a comeback. This look works best on hair that’s all one length and naturally medium to thick.
Side-swept bangs will work with any face shape, but be sure to pick a length that works with your lifestyle. If you need a ponytail for exercise, request longer fringe that you can pull back. Be sure to have a slight, not too deep, side part with this look, as you don’t want to get into comb-over territory.
We know it might sound crazy, but brushed back looks work on every face shape. A sleek ponytail will slim a round face, and a slicked back down look will show off a heart-shaped face’s cheekbones.
If you’re already working the lob but need an update, balayage is the color job for you. The hand-painted technique ensures the most seamless, natural looking highlights. Balayage can add depth and texture to any lob (on any face shape), especially one with a few long layers.
