Hairstyles For Your Face Shape
BEST HAIRSTYLES FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE
It’s no secret a flattering haircut can be game changing to your overall looks and vibes. It doesn’t just look good, but you feel good too, and confidence really is the best accessory anyone can step out with.
We know how terrifying it can be to bid goodbye to a look you’ve been carrying for years to adopt a new style. A big no no is to jump right into the latest IT style or go for the same haircut as your style icon. It is important to understand what suits her, may not suit you. So don’t go making decisions before you understand the number one most important factor – your face shape.
DETERMINE YOUR FACE SHAPE
To know if you’ve got a heart, round, or square face, tie your hair back and take a photo of yourself facing the camera. Then, trace the outside of your face to get the shape. Simple!
Now that you’ve got your face shape, learn what suits your face.
ROUND SHAPED FACE
A round face shape has the same length and width. The goal is to create height and length to your face.
Long layers, textured bob and pixie cut with volume at the top is your go-to style. These styles make your neck and face appear more slender. Avoid bangs at all cost as bangs will only make your face look even shorter.

OVAL SHAPED FACE
If the length of your face is longer than the width, you have an oval face shape and you are a lucky one! An oval face allows you to play with most cuts and styles.
From long locks to cute short crop and blunt bob, you can carry them all. Oval faces are great for big hair as volume and length both compliments your overall features.

SQUARE SHAPED FACE
A square face shape has strong and angled jawline. Your forehead, cheekbones and jawline has the same width. Square faces will need styles that softens these sharp features. A side parted style complements your bone structure.
Try wispy layers, sweeping side fringe or medium-length layered hairstyle that stops below the jaw. Avoid sleek and straight hair as it emphasizes the squareness of your face.

HEART SHAPED FACE
Do you have a narrow chin and is your hairline or forehead the widest part of your face? If the answer is yes, then you have a heart shaped face.
Create balance by adding volume at the bottom. Lobs and styles with deep side parts are great, especially with waves in the mid-lengths and ends. Shoulder length bob is great for this face shape too.
