The centre-parting opens up your face, and makes it appear wider. Since it’s such a severe accent, it can make your features look sharp. It looks good on oval-shaped and heart-shaped faces. A person with an oblong-shaped face should wear it with bangs to reduce the height, or be ready to be asked, “Why the long face?” If your face is round or square, it will frame your face perfectly, and will even it out by making it appear as though your face is slightly longer. A centre-parting also helps define your cheekbones and elongates one’s features.
