Oblong Face Shape ?

The oblong face shape is rectangular, and has similar qualities as the square face shape except that it’s longer. It tends to be angular, but not always. Oblong faces are pretty straight, with the cheekbones not any or much wider than the forehead and jaw line.
What to avoid: center parts, no-bangs or slicked-back styles, chin-length styles with no texture or fullness, and styles that add volume on top but not at the sides. The best styles for this face are full, textured styles- think curl or wave, and layers. Short and medium length styles work well on this face, like ‘wedge’ cuts and graduated bobs that are shorter than the jaw line. Shoulder length cuts with layers that kick out or have texture are flattering, as are side parts and blunt cut bangs.
Hair Style for Oblong Face Shape
HAIRSTYLES TO TRY
Styles that are short to medium in length with longer top layers without height are best suited such as wedge and graduated bob cuts .
Chin and shoulder length looks that turn under or kick out also work very well to add width.
Straight across bangs with side parts work best.
Layered styles in medium and long lengths that add body in with wavy and curly textures are great for softening the straight long lines of oblong face shapes.
HAIRSTYLES TO AVOID
Hairstyles that add height at the crown or on top will only lengthen your face.
MIDDLE PARTS
The absence of bangs.
Wispy chin length styles that have no body or that don’t add width through the sides should also be avoided.
Makeup Tips for Oblong Face Shape
An oblong or rectangular face shape is longer than it is wide, and is relatively the same width across the forehead, cheekbones and jawline. For an oblong face, use makeup to accentuate your cheekbones and bring out the middle third of the face.
CONTOURING AN OBLONG FACE
With makeup, you can contour an oblong face to make it appear more equally proportioned. Start by applying foundation and powder all over the face. A well-powdered face is essential for contouring.
SHADE AND SHORTEN
Your objective with makeup on an oblong face is to create the appearance of the ideal oval, making your face appear both shorter and broader. Use a darker pressed powder (or a matte bronzer) along the hairline at the top of the forehead, blending it downward. Also add the same bronzer to just the bottom of the chin. This will help the face appear slightly shorter.
CONTOUR WITH BRONZER
Next, you want to focus on the cheekbones to make the face appear broader. Apply bronzer, just under the cheekbones in the hollow, and then blend up and out toward the hairline.
“For an oblong face, contour the sides of the jaw, temples and hairline with bronzer to minimize the prominent forehead,” .
HIGHLIGHT YOUR CHEEKS
To really put the focus on the cheeks, you need to apply blush just to the apples, using a fluffy brush in a circular motion. Then, apply a light highlighter or illuminating powder to the very highest points of the cheek to finish widening the appearance of the face.
PLAY UP YOUR EYES
By putting the emphasis on your beautiful features, you can take away from an irregular, oblong face shape , bold eyeshadow colors and dramatic lashes. “Extending the eyebrows outward toward your temples also will soften the angular features,” says Lauren.

Square Shape face

What is Square Face Shape?

The square face and round face are the two most common face shapes. The square face does not narrow much from the cheekbone to the forehead, nor from the cheekbone to the jaw line. The square face may also look angular- the jawline may appear sharply-angled at the corners, and even the forehead may be squared off.

ROUND SHAPE FACE

What is Round Face Shape?

Round face shapes are exactly as they sound- the widest point is across the cheekbones, narrowing some at the forehead and jaw line. This face shape is not angular at all, and is wider than the typical oval or oblong face.
When working with a round face shape, you may want to avoid any hairstyle that’s ear-length. (This length gives a wider appearance.) Also, avoid blunt-cut straight bangs and styles that add volume or curl to the sides without any up on top. The most balanced and flattering styles on a round face are those that add fullness at the crown or top of the head, as well as longer styles with little width. Wispy bangs or side-swept bangs are best, and very short styles can work as well. (Just not ear-length.)

HAIRSTYLES TO TRY

Hairstyles with height and fullness at the crown will give the illusion of a narrower face shape, particularly those short in length.
Longer hairstyles or ones that are kept close to the cheeks with no width will look better.
Middle parts  are great for creating the illusion of narrow length.
No bangs are the ideal as the focus point becomes the bridge of the nose, creating a more oval shape.
If finges are used they should be swept across, or in the case of solid bangs, only where there is substantial height on the top.
Short hairstyles  are great and do not suffocate small round faces.

HAIRSTYLES TO AVOID

 Adding volume to the sides of the hair is a no-no for women with round faces.
Hairstyles that add volume through the sides such as chin length bob cuts, straight or kicking out in design.
Side parts and heavy straight across fing create a wider shorter shape and therefore should be avoided at all costs on hairstyles without any height.
