People with long faces have a good look because they can use medium and shorter cuts to compensate and balance out their look. This can be achieved with the use of bangs and mid-length haircuts.
A longer face can appear to be shortened by using bangs because you can cover up larger foreheads and naturally draw the eye to the area of the face from the eyebrows to the chin. This is a good look for longer faces because it creates a balanced look. Sara Jessica Parker has a long, thin face and pulls of the long hair look by creating volume on the sides in a wispy fashion. And she cuts her bangs in angled layers that can sweep across her face and blend with her longer hair. This hides her longer facial features and keeps us focused on just her beautiful eyes, thin nose, and diminutive mouth.
