Characteristics of an Oblong Face Shape?

Did you know that you happen to have an attractive face? You heard right, having an oblong face shape is wanted by so many. It suits both men and women. Oblong faces are best complemented with a style that has the shape of the cheekbones; to distract yourself from the length of your overall look.

The term oblong can be separated into two: oval and long. So is there a difference between oval and oblong face shapes? Technically, there is just a tiny detail that separates the two from each other. You pretty much have a more extended version of an oval face shape. Remember the three most important components?

  • Forehead
  • Cheekbones
  • Jawline

If you have an oblong face shape, your face is longer than it is wide. Also, your forehead will typically be the widest part of your face. You will have a rounded chin and jawline. Basically, every other facial feature will be shaped as round and soft.

We are kicking things off with a geometric combination. The first type of frame is loved by many. The reason why it is so common and popular is that you can master the frames on so many levels. In other words, you can choose to stick to the classical browline frame, or you can go as funky as you want. This type of frame was popular during a specific period between the 1950s and 1960s. The frames hit their peak, specifically in the United States of America. They are called browlines because the upper part of the frame matches how the eyebrows look above the glasses. They might seem to be retro, but they are in style up to this day.

Once you check out the Harmony eyeglasses, you will know what we mean by that. If you are a fan of thick frames, this one is for you.
