Best haircut for long face/narrow head?

Alright...I have a head shape somewhat similar to Daniel Tosh and Peyton Manning. Long face in addition to narrow/long head. I usually get a "fade" haircut (shorter on sides, longer on top), but I recently realized that this just makes my head/face look longer.

I was thinking maybe I should just do a medium cut the same length everywhere...meaning just take the clippers (maybe a number 5, which is not short and not long), and just cut it all off. I think that will definitely balance my face better. Cutting it short on the sides and leaving it longer on top has been a bad mistake because it makes everything longer.

What do you think?

Forgot to mention that my hairline is actually pretty low. Daniel tosh and manning have a big forehead because their hairline is high, but my forehead looks really small.

I have a similar issue, but my hair is fairly straight. I ask them to cut the sides with an angle like \\ /, but not as extreme as that. This makes my face seem not as long.
