One of the most important factors to consider when planning your haircut is the shape of your face. There are cuts that are flattering and not flattering for every face shape.
- Square Faces
Wide or blunt bangs and blunt bobs that hit the jawline will highlight the corners of the face and make it look wider. Instead, you will look better with haircuts that make angular features softer. Get mid-length and long layers instead.
- Oval Faces
Hairstyles that have volume on the top will make the face look even more oval. Fortunately, any other style will look great on those with oval faces.
- Oblong Faces
Long and flat hair is not flattering for those with oblong faces. Moreover, one-length styles should be avoided at all costs. Instead, get used to having bangs. They will provide the right balance for a narrow face shape. A strong fringe is also a great idea, especially when you add a side part.
- Heart-Shaped Faces
Never get short layers and bangs, as they will highlight the wider top half of your face. Instead, get a jaw-length bob. A great look is long hair with bangs that will highlight cheekbones and make the face look fuller.
- Round Faces
One-length cuts will make the face look round, which also happens when you get too many layers. Instead, your stylist will have to be careful with layers, going for longer ones that will frame the face. At best is a layered style with a side part. To make the face look elongated, a strong angular fringe is also a great idea.
