Long grey hairstyles for all face shapes

Long Grey Hairstyles for All Face Shapes

Transitioning to grey hair can be incredibly challenging. It’s a big change, both visually and emotionally, and it’s completely normal to experience various difficulties along the way.

It can involve dealing with visible roots and the awkward in-between stages, a change of hair texture, and dryness. Feeling “old” or less attractive can be frustrating and lead to a feeling of looking unkempt.

But you know something: these challenges are temporary and can be overcome. There are many ways to help you navigate the transition smoothly and confidently.

In my last post, I discussed how makeup can be a game-changer during and after the grey hair transition. I insist you go through it once.

In this post, I will discuss choosing the right hairstyle for your face shape to help emphasize the natural beauty of your grey hair by adding volume, highlighting shine, or playing with different textures, eventually making your silver hair transition journey easy and confident.

So first, let’s know the different face shapes and the hairstyles that flatter them.

  • Oval: This is considered the most versatile shape, as it’s balanced, with no one feature being overly prominent. They can rock almost any hairstyle, from long layers to pixie cuts.
  • Round: This shape has a similar width and length, with soft jawlines and full cheeks. Consider adding height and volume on top with styles like long waves, side-swept bangs, or angled bobs to elongate the face.
  • Square: This shape has a strong jawline and similar width across the forehead and cheekbones. Soften the angles with side-swept bangs, long layers, or textured bobs. Avoid blunt cuts and styles that add width to the jaw.
  • Heart: This shape has a wider forehead and tapers to a narrow chin. Balance the proportions with styles that add volume to the chin, like chin-length bobs, long layers with waves, or side-swept bangs. Avoid styles that add volume to the forehead.
  • Diamond: This shape has high cheekbones, a narrow forehead and a chin. Aim for styles that widen the forehead and soften the cheekbones, like curtain bangs, side parts, or medium-length hairstyles with volume on the sides.
  • Long: This shape is similar to an oval but with a longer length. Balance the length with styles that add width, like side-swept bangs, textured bobs, or chin-length layers with volume.
