[MUSIC] Long haircuts can be glamorous and feminine, sleek and simple, and surprisingly easy to style. It's all about choosing the right cut for your face shape and hair texture. For girls with heart-shaped faces, your angular chin naturally becomes a focal point. So the trick is to ask for a hairstyle that pulls that attention elsewhere. Try full layers that start below your chin and angle in toward your face. A deep side part will also help emphasize your cheekbones and play down a wider forehead. Super long styles are probably not for you. A cut that stops just below your collarbone will be totally flattering. Long hair looks especially gorgeous on ladies with round faces, because it helps elongate your natural shape. But ask for a cut with layers for a little volume and bounce. A super flat look can actually drag your face down. You could also try side-swept bangs and a deep side part, two easy tricks to make your face look slimmer. For girls with a square face shape; loose waves, long layers and rounded bangs all look fab on you. The layers will lengthen your features and the bangs will help a wide forehead look slimmer. Long hair is super flattering for women with oval faces, ask your stylist for layers around your cheekbones to give your hair some texture and movement. Make sure the layers are different lengths though, uniform layers can make your face look longer instead of framing you face. If you face is a long oval, try blunt or round bangs to shorten up your shape. You can also try side-swept, deep side part to keep your face from looking too symmetrical. When you ask for a style that flatters your face shape, long hair can make you look and feel like a total A Lister. [MUSIC]
