Find a hairstyle for your oblong face shape inspired by Hilary Swank.

An oblong face shape is characterized by long and narrow proportions with a straight cheek line and pointy chin. Because oblongs are bottom-heavy, styles that pull the eye upwards are most flattering, whereas very blunt, long hair is a definite no-no.  A very famous oblong, Hilary Swank, shows us how to wear different styles with this particular face shape.

Hilary’s side-swept fringe creates nice coverage over the forehead and the razored ends of her hair soften up the jaw line—something that is essential for oblongs.

Oblongs look good in side-swept styles so if you are still rocking a centre hair part, do a Swank and switch to a deep side hair part that has lots of volume and will show off that fabulous bone structure of yours!
