A Darker Hair Colour
One way to get the appearance of an elongated face is with a darker hair colour. Just like your little black dress, this can be extra flattering, especially if you have short hair. If you're fairer skinned, it provides a stark contrast between your hair colour and your skin colour, so you don't have to worry about creating an illusion of a wider face. "The darker hair covers up the width, while the lighter version expands it," said Toth.
