When choosing any beard or hairstyle, you want to take into account your physical attributes.

Oblong faces usually longer, with a soft, curving jaw.

If you have an oblong face shape, beard styles that help square your jawline are best. You also want to avoid longer styles of beards as your face is already naturally longer in shape. Don’t discount a moustache as it’s a great tool to add visual width to balance off your natural length.

Pro tips to consider

  • Keep the neck and cheek lines clean, to help define your jawline
  • Stick to short beard styles, your face is naturally long so longer beards are overkill
  • Moustaches are a great option as they add visual width to balance off your longer face shape
  • Your beard style and haircut are a complimentary pair. Take a look at our haircuts for oblong face shapes.
