Long Neck & Face HairstyleQ: I have a little bit of body in my hair and a long neck and face. I am 47 years old. What style and length would minimize a long neck?
A: I can't offer you any suggestions as to specific hairstyles, because I don't have nearly enough information to make an informed suggestion. However, the general principles of dealing with a long neck call for a length of hair that will fall somewhere between the chin and shoulders. Having the hair cut in a blunt style or one with minimal layering and extra fullness at the ends will help you to create a visual line to break up the length of the neck by drawing the eye horizontally, instead of exaggerating the vertical line already created by the neck itself.
Can a person with a long neck get their hair cut short?
