How to Choose a Haircut That Fits Your Face Shape
Almost everyone has experienced a haircut they wish they’d never received. The right cut can flatter the face and enhance your natural attributes. It all begins with determining the shape of your face. You can wear any style and cut you’d like, but some haircuts are better suited to certain facial shapes.
Most people view a haircut as a way to draw attention away from features they don’t like and the right cut accomplishes that while flattering other facial characteristics. You may be able to identify your face type with a look in the mirror. If you’re not sure, ask your stylist.
This is the rarest shape, featuring a narrow forehead and chin, combined wide cheekbones. Choose hairstyles that have greater fullness at the chin and narrow sides. A bob is good for this facial structure, along with straight bangs.
A narrow chin and wide forehead mark the heart-shaped face. Bangs swept to the side help downplay forehead width, along with styles that provide fullness around the jaw.
If your face is oblong, you’ll have a facial structure that’s narrow and long. Choose shorter styles, short layers, or curls to give a wider appearance.
An oval face is longer than it is wide and marked by jaw that’s narrower than your cheekbones. Highly proportional, you’ll look good with just about any length, cut or style.
Also known as a triangular shape, your face will have a larger jawline and a narrow or small forehead. Select a longer style to camouflage the jawline. Shorter cuts and volume on top add fullness.
If you have a round face, you’ll have a wide hairline and fullness just below your cheekbones. Choose a cut with long layers and/or windswept bangs to give the appearance of facial length. Short layers will highlight roundness.
A wide jawline and hairline are the features of a square face shape. You’ll need to add height on top, combined with narrowing on the sides. Soft bangs, adding texture, and a deep side part will all help add balance to your face. Avoid straight lines if you have a square face and consider longer locks.
