How to Choose The Best Hairstyle For Your Face Shape

If you are looking to find a hairstyle that naturally complements your face shape, you’ve come to the right place. In today’s post, I’ll give you some key tips to select a hairstyle that compliments your face, enhances key features, and gives you that magnetic appearance. The most common face shapes are heart, long, diamond, oval, round, and square. Assuming you already know your face shape – read on to find the perfect haircut!

Heart Shaped Face

A heart-shaped face is very delicate and feminine. The haircut goal for a heart-shaped face is to draw attention to the eyes and the cheekbones, For this reason opting for bangs, or more volume around the sides of the face like layers will complement the features of this shape. This face shape will also benefit from shorter styles, and can even go shorter than the chin, to enhance this region of the face. Inward layers will also greatly enhance this face shape by making the chin very visible. 

Diamond Face Shape

This face shape will benefit from adding volume to the top of the head to balance the lower part of the face. Asymmetrical bangs can visibly make the center line look longer. If the face appears long, then the goal is to shorten the vertical center line by adding bangs, for example. Thick, huge, middle bangs with no split will make your face appear shorter. It’s important for this face shape to avoid wearing long, sleek cuts without layers because they will simply elongate the face even more. 

Long Face Shape

Since this face shape is already long, it doesn’t necessarily need long, straight hair. This hairstyle will simply make this face shape look even longer. Therefore, it’s best to opt for shorter hairstyles and mid-length cuts, as well as blowouts and cuts that offer plenty of volume. This face shape also does very well with bangs. 

Oval Face Shape

Thankfully, this face shape is very easy to flatter and most hairstyles will look great! Therefore, find a cut and style that enhances your hair texture, and feel free to experiment with different cuts. However, if there is some feature of your face you want to enhance or downplay, you can play with various cuts to hide or visually correct the eye. 

Round Face Shape

To enhance features and create more harmony, opt for a hair length that is below the chin. If your hair texture is curly or wavy, shorter styles may add more width to the cheek area. Ultimately, the goal is to add volume on top and elongate the face. For styling tips, this face shape should curl hair towards the outside, and layers will also be a great option. Bangs should always be split in the middle to break the circular features up. This face shape should avoid bob cuts, which will make the face seem even rounder. Moreover, any styling that makes the hair go inwards will also make the face appear rounder

Square Face Shape

To create more balance, look for haircuts that tone down a strong, angular jaw. In this face shape, the jaw bone is very visible. You can play with textures like layers, choppy ends, and even curls to achieve this effect. Avoid haircuts that are chin length, as that will accentuate the jawline even more, and instead opt for shoulder length cuts or even longer hair. Essentially, the longer the hair grows, the more the jawline will narrow. Is your forehead too wide? Face shapes with a wide forehead greatly benefit from bangs, which bring a more visual balance. Avoid splitting bangs in the middle, and instead split them to one side to break this square shape visually
