Hair tips for oblong face type:

  1. Dont go too long and add some waves.
  2. Opt for bangs as they make your face look shorter by covering up the forehead.
  3. Chin length cuts would suit you because they create an illusion of width.
  4. Straight long hair would make your face look longer! So avoid it. Instead, you could try wavy long hair as they would add volume to the face.
  5. Instead of length, ask for strength from your hair products. Use Vatika Enriched Almond Hair Oil to make your hair strong and thick.
