Oblong or rectangular faces are perfect for long layers or feathered fringe. A gentle curl will create movement to offset sharper angles of the face.

A square face works well with the same styles as oblong or rectangular. Side-swept bangs and long layers are a can’t lose strategy. 

Hair Texture

Thin or fine hair can be challenging to work with, but cutting it to shoulder length and adding layers will create volume.

For straight hair, you can play around with different lengths for layers. This will help give more body to your hair so that it looks fuller. Short, angular bobs elevate straight hair.
