Hairstyle for Oblong Faces Like Kate Beckinsale’s: Create Fullness at the Sides

Hairstyles that create fullness at the sides are the best way to balance out the proportions of an oblong face shape. Instead of keeping your hair down, which can drag down your face, try a soft updo while leaving a few layers around your face to add softness and break up the length of your face, says Stone.

Here’s how to get Kate Beckinsale’s piece-y updo:

1. Start with a center part. Tease the hair at the crown to give it more volume.

2. Curl your hair in medium-sized sections with a 1 1/2-inch curling iron. Wrap your hair around the barrel for 10 seconds, and then unroll it, giving each section a tug to loosen the wave, says Grmolyes.

3. Next, gather up all of your hair into a low ponytail or a bun, leaving out a few long pieces of hair around your face. Secure it in any loose style you want.

4. Touch up the hair around your face with a curling iron, and mist all over with strong-hold hairspray to keep the style in place.
