Choosing The Right Hairstyle For Your Face Shape

Tired of trying out different hairstyles and coming up with ghastly results? Many of us do not realize that only a particular kind of style will go well with our facial structure. The right way, say, stylists, is to find what works with the structure of the face and looks flattering.

A flattering hairstyle can be the most important single factor in your appearance. Not only does it tell about your character, but it also balances your body, frames your face, and complements your clothes and lifestyle. A really professional haircut is a valuable investment because it will make you feel good as well as look good.

Right Hair Style For You

When choosing a new hairstyle you should look carefully at the shape of your face. So, let us see what kind of face do you have?

Oval Face

If you have an oval face, you are lucky, as any style will suit you. A long face is best complemented by short hair that is quite full, with a fringe. Don’t go for a severe long hairdo that will only make your face look longer.

Round Face

If you have a round face, you should aim to add length. If you don’t want long hair, part your hair on the side or add fullness on top. Avoid a neat bob with a fringe. A round face gives an overall appearance of roundness. A full face is flattered by a short, layered cut. The top of the head should be given a long look with a layered, curly style, extending to the back. If making a topknot, get a lot of elongated tendrils out. That balances your face. A lot of volume to the hair will give it a flat look. A severe, tied-back style also makes the face look rounder. Avoid it!

Square Face

A wide forehead and square jawbone mean you have a square face. A style with hair 2.5 cm, or so below the chin sits pretty on a square face. If your hair is thick or wavy, you can go all one length. With straight or fine hair, you can opt for a slight angle in the front. Don't go in for bobs. Blunt-clipped bangs are also not recommended because they would emphasize the squareness of your face. All a square face needs is a little softening if the jawline is too heavy. Draw the attention away from the jaw with a diagonal fringe forward from the hairline and around the ears if you wear your hair up, or long loose hair with a bit of bounce below chin level.

Long Face

A long, thin face with a narrow chin is oblong. A short, perky bob will go very nicely with your kind of looks. It should be short at the back and the angled chin-length, in the front. Wearing it with a side parting, with bangs brushed to the side, rounds out an oblong face. A longer bob, about five cm, below the chin, will also look good on this kind of face. Layered hair will not suit you at all. Long hair, too, makes the face seems lengthier.
