Hairstyle for a Thin Face

Q: I have long hair that is past my shoulders but I have a thin face. What kind of hairstyle would you recommend? I want to keep the length, but around the face I think I should cut it.
A: It is almost impossible to make suggestions on specific hairstyles based on a few details of the hair and/or face.
However, most often, persons with thin faces look best with hairstyles that offer extra volume on the sides. You might try getting a layered haircut and curling the hair to create fullness on the sides, or styling the hair so that the ends of the hair turn outward.

I would also caution against having the hair too long when your face is thin, especially if the hair is straight. The length will only exaggerate the length of the face. By adding layers to your hairstyle you will be able to keep the length of your hair, but you will be able to add volume and fullness to the hairstyles you wear.
