Like clothes, haircuts aren’t one-size-fits-all either.
Before you give your hairdresser the green light to pick up the scissors, it’s important to know which styles best suit your face shape. Here is a quick guide to help you pick the best haircut for your face shape.
According to research, the most ideal and well balanced face shape is oval. Thanks to that, any haircut or hairstyle looks good on them. Aren’t they the lucky ones? Women who prefer short hair, you should consider opting for a blunt bob or lob with subtle layers. But if you like long locks, minimal layers with waves will look particularly chic.
A heart-shaped face has a broad forehead and cheekbones with a narrow jawline and chin. To balance your face shape, you should aim for cuts and styles that decrease your brow width and increases the lower half of your face, like a long side-swept cut with waves or curls starting below the ear to even out your angled jaw. A side-swept pixie cut with textured ends will also look great.
This face shape features a narrow forehead and jawline with cheekbones at the widest point of the face. Women with diamond face shapes should aim to soften their sharp angles with medium or long layers styled in voluminous waves.
A square-shaped face features a broad forehead, wide cheekbones, and a strong jawline. For a look that compliments your bone structure, consider a short, layered bob.
The most flattering haircuts for ladies with round faces are those that add definition and shape, such as, long layered cuts and choppy pixie cuts. Try to avoid bobs and full bangs which can enhance the appearance of roundness.
6. Rectangular or Oblong
Opt for haircuts that soften your sharp features without further elongating your face. Some of the most flattering styles are layered cuts with waves or curls, rounded fringes and curtain bangs.
