Have a fresh new look for the holiday season. 

Looking for haircuts for long faces to rock on Thanksgiving? We don’t know about you, but we think that any kind of gathering or celebration, like Thanksgiving, is the best possible time to debut a new haircut. With family and friends coming together from all over the country, it’s a great time to confidently show-off a new look. And if you have a long face, you might need some help in figuring out the right kind of haircuts for long faces, especially ones that’ll define and accentuate your face type. For some instant hair inspiration, read on to check five of our favorite haircuts for long faces.

5 Haircuts For Long Faces To Get Before Thanksgiving

1. Long Hair and Micro Bangs

Micro bangs have been under the radar for awhile now, but the more we see them the more we love them! Micro bangs (or any sort of fringe) works well on long faces because it helps to reduce length of your face while also adding width. Plus, they’re super cute. Remember when you get a fringe for the first time, you’ll need to learn how to trim bangs at home, or you’ll be seeing your stylist once every couple weeks. You’ll also need to master the art of styling your bangs, which basically involves blowdrying them. Don’t forget to use a heat protectant, like the TRESemmé Platinum Strength Heat Spray before you start!

2. Choppy Lob

A choppy lob, worn with face framing layers is one of the most flattering haircuts for long faces. We love this look because you can wear it super curly, wavy, or straight and it always looks chic and modern. Ask for a collarbone skimming lob with face framing layers to get this fresh look.

3. Big Natural Curls

If you have super voluminous curls, you are in luck. Mega volume and a long face are a perfect match. Whether your hair is super long or on the short side, make sure to take care of your curls for the best effect. To define your curls, use some of the Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse on wet hair in order to add moisture and bounce to your hair. Then, dry your hair with a hair dryer and a diffuser to keep your curl structure perfect. You can also play with the hairstyling options with this cut, like a deep-side part, which can take the volume in your hair to a whole new level.

4. Close Cropped Pixie

A short pixie like this one is a great choice for oval and long faces as the cut can flatter the face. Pixie cuts are also super elegant and playful at the same time. Before making a big cut, make sure you look up lots of different pixie styles to figure out if you want an angled cut, long pixie or really short crop. Bring in some inspirational pictures to your stylist so that they can help you to figure out the best haircut for your long face and your facial features.

5. Asymmetrical Bob

Haircuts for long faces usually involve bangs (which we do love) but if you’re not feeling the fringe, try out a modern asymmetrical bob. This cut gives the illusion of side bangs because the longer side of the cut usually drapes over one side of the face. The best part about this haircut? You can still stick all of your hair into a ponytail if you happen to feel inspired one day.
