What are good haircuts/styles for a person with broad shoulders and a long oval face?

I have lost a lot of weight, but still have REALLY broad shoulders and a long, thin, oval face; right now I have long hair with some layers, but am wanting a new style/cut but don't want to draw more attention to my broad shoulders and would like my best assets to show (my eyes, best frame for my face, etc). What are my options? :-/

1. You can downplay your broad shoulders (which seems to be the main concern ) by dressing in accordance to the Triangle shape created by them. So you'll have to avoid structured clothing, like blazers with shoulder pads that pretty much draw attention to the shoulders or jackets with the latter. Be careful about nipped in or cinched in waists which will more or less make your shoulders appear even broader.



With that in mind:

2. An oval face pretty much can suit any particular hairstyle , as long as you dress appropriately. It's reccomended that if you have broad shoulders you should wear your hair up or cut it above the shoulders so that the center of attention isn't near the shoulders. But since you have long hair, you really don't need to cut it if ever you want to have a short full bob or french mod hairstyle

here's how: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ton9wCOdrGI&feature=related



With that you can wear your hair short if you find your clothes are unflattering to your body proportions for the day, or you can wear your hair long, whenever you're wearing clothes that reduce the appearance of your broad shoulders. That should give your more variety right?



or

3. accept your broad shoulders for what they are, embrace them and just wear whatever the heck you want XD



I think wavy or curly hairstyles as well as some vintage styles may work well for you. Braids are a nice touch as well.

You need to volumize your hair ,either with a perm or a curling iron. You might consider a shoulder length hairstyle. You want the width of the shoulders to be lost in the volume of your hair.

To give you an honest opinion we'd have to see what you look like. It's more than just searching online for the answers, if you want a true opinion rather than a supposed fact then we'd have to see you.

something with lots of volume, maybe.. and the ideal length would be past your shoulders.

You need to volumize your hair ,either with a perm or a curling iron. You might consider a shoulder length hairstyle. The long thin hair you currently have is likely creating a strong verticle movement that is contrasting and emphasizing the strong horizontal of your shoulders. You want the width of the shoulders to be lost in the volume of your hair.
