You do understand this is a Linux and Unix operating system forum, correct? Unless you are a spam bot, in which case you wouldn't know that...

I would suggest a blunt bob.

Aside:

I went to my barber today. I told her to give me an appropriate haircut for an old guy who's going bald.

She did. I now have short hair for the first time in 50 years.

Haven't been to a barber/stylist since 18 Mar. Some hair is approaching shoulder length...

Why don't you trim it then? I stopped going to a hairdresser in 1999, when I was nursing my mother through her last illness. I simply didn't have the time for that sort of thing, so I just trimmed the ends off every time I washed it. Afterwards, when she was dead, I thought to myself, "Why should I go to a hairdresser and spend 20 or so there, when I've discovered that I can cut it myself for nothing?"

The traditional advice, if you have an oblong face, is to wear a style that is bouffant at the sides.

Definitely not! If you already have a long face, you don't want more height on top.

If this is a genuine question, it is generic to the point of uselessness.

If someone asked "What are some pretty small distros for portable computers?" the responses would rightly be asking what's wrong with the responses they got from putting the title into a search engine and for more details on what the OP actually want to achieve (e.g. stand out or blend in, one-off for an event or daily maintenance); what length range is considered short; what specifically do they mean by oblong; perhaps contrast been hair colour and skin colour affects the style - is dying it an option; etc.

This is marked in the upper side of the forum screen.

The question is non-technical including a non-Linux topic, so I think it can be submitted to this forum.
For more technical aspects (e.g. how to keep the scissors in order to obtain exactly x millimeter of hair length), I don't know if it conforms to the forum's terms.

I just googled "hair style for oblong faces" and found lots of suggestions in pictures, from a lot of celebrities (mostly women, and a few men). Not always obvious what to do, however. The suggestion by hazel is to take seriously into account!

Pretty sure the OP is a SPAM bot or something else along those lines. Why post a thread abut hair in a tech forum. This is their only post and they have vanished. Just my opinion.

I understand what you mean, however there is no link or other advertising content in the post, nor in his/hers previous posts in the forums, 2 years ago. OK, 3 posts in 2 years isn't much. Mods can say perhaps more (spam history perhaps? ).

That's just defining what subjects are on-topic (i.e. pretty much everything), it doesn't make it a good place to get answers, nor does it excuse bad etiquette.

Yet - it's common for spammers to come back and add the link in later (either to their post or to their profile), which is not usually moderated.

I checked, but see above. (I didn't actually see the previous posts before - must have accidentally clicked "Find all threads started by ..." instead of "Find all posts by ..." - but they're both clean too.)

Still, it's not even been a full day yet - it's entirely possible they are human and will actually respond.
