How To Choose A Hairstyle For Different Faces

According to Coco Chanel, a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life. True that! And life is too short to have same boring hairstyle. That is why you should take the time to learn more about your face shape and the hairstyle that will suit you before you head down to the salon and have your hair cut.

To help you out, we have provided below some of the information that you need to determine what are the hairstyles that will suit your face shape.

Oval Shaped Face

Oval-Shaped Face

You have this face shape if the length of your face is 1 and 1/2 times more than the width of your face, your forehead and jaw are of the same width, and your cheeks are prominent.

Since it is a perfect face shape, it can work well with virtually all types of hairstyles but if you wish to show off your best features, try to go for a medium-length or a bob cut. To draw more attention to your cheekbones, try to have it layered or add some beach waves to it.

Round-Shaped Face

Round-Shaped Face

This is the shape of your face if the width and length of your face are of the same size.
If you have this face shape, your goal is to make your face look a bit longer. The best hairstyle for you would be a long straight layered hair so you can draw attention to the chin area instead of the cheek area. When styling your hair, you can try adding a long fringe to it. You can also curl it up and pull it to a long wavy ponytail.

Square-Shaped Face

Square-Shaped Face

This is your face shape if you have an angular jaw, prominent forehead and clearly defined cheekbones and chin.
If you have this face shape, you should aim to soften the angularity of your jaw. The best hairstyle for you would be a diamond cut (a cut that is shorter in the front and longer at the back), bob, long straight hair or medium wavy hair. Do not forget that a fringe is your best friend.

Heart-Shaped Face

Heart-Shaped Face

You have this face shape if you have wide forehead and cheekbones but narrow jawline.
To soften the V-shape of your face, choose a hairstyle that would draw more attention to the eyes and cheeks. A medium length hairstyle with a center part or blunt bangs with a side ponytail is perfect for you.

Diamond-Shaped Face

Diamond-Shaped Face

This is your face shape if you have narrow jawline and forehead and wide cheekbones.
To soften the appearance of your cheeks, you can go for a pixie or medium length haircut with side parting or wavy hair with a thick fringe.
