Are you trying to change your hair but don’t know what haircut would fit you best? Then you’re in the right place! Here are some advices on how to choose your haircut based on the shape of your face.
Sometimes a good make-up look is not enough, to look your best you should also have the right haircut. When looking for a hair change, always keep in mind your hair type, your style and, most of all, your face shape. Don’t just follow the trends, go for something that really fits you. Here’s my guide to finding the best haircuts for your face shape.
The oval face is considered to be the best one because it goes with all haircuts. This is because the jaw and forehead are rounded, and the sides of the face are slightly curved—there are no sharp angles. Oval face shapes are slightly long and the cheekbones are the widest part of the face. To make this shape stand out choose asymmetric haircuts and soft waves that go over the chin. Avoid doing short cuts, so that you won’t make your face look longer.
The round face is easily recognizable thanks to its round shape. Face length and width are about equal. In this case, choose hairstyles and makeup that lengthen the face. The best way to do this is by straightening your hair. If you want to curl it, remember to make the curls go outwards. Your hair cut should have some layers and length is just above the shoulders.
The square face has very strong features, a wide jaw and sharp cheekbones. Selecting a cut that softens these features is essential for a flattering appearance. You should go for a long or medium-long wavy haircut. Add some bangs, which will draw attention to your cheekbones instead of your jawline. Another advice is to part your hair in the center.
If you have a heart-shaped face, you have a widow’s peak and pointy chin. Your forehead or cheekbones are the widest part of your face. To balance this face shape, go for a medium length hair with strong beach waves. The best haircut is a voluminous bob. Your hair should never be parted in the center, but on the side.
The rectangular face is characterized by a strong jaw line and a wide forehead. The best thing to do is to create volume in the cheek zone. You should choose short or medium cuts. If you’d like long hair, remember to add some layers. Avoid giving more volume to the roots.
The diamond face shape is a mix between the oval and heart one, because the cheekbones are very pronounced. In this case the goal is to give proportion and volume where it is necessary. I advise you to opt for a mid or long layered cut worn with tousled waves and a side part. Stay clear from short haircuts.
These are my advices on how to choose the best haircut based on your face shape. Remember that all face shapes are beautiful!
