Get The Best Haircut for Your Face Shape

by | Aug 25, 2020 | Beauty & Bridal & Fashion

Yes, you should consider your hair type and facial features when deciding on a hairstyle. But don’t forget another crucial factor: your face shape. Choosing a hairstyle that flatters it compliments you from all angles.
For Round Faces: Asymmetrical
“A round face looks really good with an uneven cut, meaning a mix of lengths.” If you add a deep side part and long, side-swept bangs, you’ll look slimmer.” Use a light finishing cream.
For round faces: Long Layers
“If you want to wear a center part, the way to make it work for a round face is to have hair a few inches past your shoulders with layers that hit at the jaw”…. Ask your stylist to cut in a bit on the sides to create subtle angles,” as Kate Bosworth has. Prevent layers from frizzing, which can add bulk around your face, by smoothing on a silicone serum.
For square faces: Wavy Ends
“Try waves from the ears down, which helps obscure any severity in the jawline,” Megan Fox’s is a great example of this look on long hair. Use a large round brush to smooth hair, then spritz on a wave spray like
For square faces: Thinned-Out Bob
“A soft, tapered bob that hits right around the chin works beautifully on a square face,” To add texture like Keira Knightley has and offset any severity at the jawline.
For heart faces: Bouncy Bob
For a heart-shaped face, “hair that hits right below the jaw helps fill in the area around the chin, and de-emphasizes the triangle,” To blur those lines even more, add a bit of body, as Zoe Saldana has, with a round brush and volumizing spray.
For heart faces: Pixie with Side-Swept Bangs
“A pixie with soft side-swept bangs softens any hard features,” Carey Mulligan is a classic. Finger-comb a light cream before going over hair with a round brush and blow dryer for smoothness.
For oval faces: Blunt Bangs
“If your face tends to look long, cutting straight bangs across the brow line can break up the length by creating the illusion of width,” Keep them blunt like Taylor Swift’s, with one or two passes of a flatiron.
For oval faces: Bob with Side Bangs
“A collarbone-grazing bob with side-swept bangs helps break up a long face and add softness,” Carrie Underwood’s fits the bill. Keep bangs in place with a pea-size drop of light gel.
