Knowing your face shape when you pop to the hairdressers will help you select a style that will both flatter and suit you. Here at The Chapel, we inspire some fantastic hairstyles tailored specifically to your face shape. If you have a longer face shape like Sarah Jessica Parker or Liv Tyler, then these hairstyles will make you feel just like a Hollywood actress!

The Silhouette

This gorgeous look has been around for decades and remains one of the most popular and most beautiful hairstyles for long faces. Oozing with sophistication and glamour, this look is fantastic for ladies with mid to long length locks. To achieve this look, grab your favourite styling product and a round brush, and lift up the side sections while blow drying to build in volume. Proceed with blow-drying the rest of the hair as standard, and make sure you use some shine serum. A spritz of hairspray and hey presto: you'll have a stunning style to complement the shape of your face!

Long Layers With Bangs

Forget highlighter – this style highlights your bone structure all by itself! Long layers help to emphasise your cheekbones and the choppy fringe will make your eyes pop. For this style, you’ll want to make volumising mousse your bestie, and apply it to the mid-length to the roots of your hair. Blowdry your hair and use curling tongs to achieve this eye-catching look. Make sure, though, that you’re not curling any higher than your cheekbones and curl away from your face. When the curls have cooled down, run your fingers through your locks to loosen them and add hairspray.

Pixie Look

This look is perfect for ladies who want to create a dramatic, daring, short-haired look. With a long fringe in front, this works to make your face more even. If you want to stand out, you can even add some balayage or bolder streaks to achieve that real unique Pixie look. This is a fairly easy style to achieve, too – though you wouldn’t think it. Simply add heat protector and dry your hair, alongside applying your favourite styling product. Then straighten your long fringe and finish with a texturising product.

Layered Waves (Rainbow Optional)

These are absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous. You’ll need a hairdresser for this one, so why not visit our salon in London, Horsham, Marlow, Tunbridge Wells or Sevenoaks? The beautiful streak of rainbow colours within your hair will emphasise your facial features, and if you have a longer face, will add to your natural beauty. Having a longer face, in fact, allows you to carry this look with beauty and grace.

Embrace the elegant shape of your face with any of the four styles mentioned above, and shine brightly with flawless, fantastic hairstyles!
