The cuts for the long, aquiline nose

«If the nose is long and aquiline it is good to aim for asymmetrical cuts. Better avoid flat, straight hair which make the nose look even longer and with the tip down. The ideal is to opt for scales and tufts that project forward lightly, and thus soften the facial features »- suggests hair stylist Cegliese.
