Choose the Hairstyle Perfect for Your Shape

Ever gone to a salon with a picture of your favourite hairstyle and still was not satisfied when you come out with the exact look you wanted. Sometimes the hairstyles we would see on a fashion magazine or on Instagram would not look good on us as they would do on the model or the celebrity we saw the style on. This is because not every style matches every person and a large part of this has to do with the face shape of each person. Take a look at the tips below to see the best haircuts for different face shapes.

Oval Shaped Face

An oval face is a face that has length longer than the width with no prominent angles. Their jawline is only slightly narrower than the forehead giving the face an elongated but yet a softly rounded look. When picking good styles for your face, try to avoid style s that can make your face look even more elongated. Shoulder length hair with a few layers, side bangs are some of the bet styles for you. You can also try out a blunt bob if you are looking for a shorter style.

Square Face

For those who have a square shaped face, you have your forehead, cheekbones and jawlines all at the almost same width. Most square shaped faces are also defined by a strong jawline. Depending on the way you want to look, you can either choose a style that can soften or highlight your jawline. Wispy bangs, long straight hair and layers can help you to soften your sharp jawline. If you are unsure which style would bring the best of you, check in with somewhere like ibiza hair for hairdressers who can let you know exactly what style you should go for.

Round Faces

If you have a round face, your face is the same in both width and length. Round faces are also known to hold the ‘baby-face’ look giving you the chance to experiment a little with youthful hairstyles. When picking the right hairstyle, the best to do is go for a style that will reduce the roundness of the face and make it look more oval. Short pixies cut, asymmetrical cuts or bangs that frame your face.  A side part can also help your face to look more elongated and angular.

Diamond Shaped Faces

If your forehead and jawline are of the same width, you have wide cheekbones and a narrower chin, it means you have a diamond shaped face. The best styles for your face would be styles that help to accentuate your face shape. Wide swept bangs, long layers, textured lobs are some great style options for you. You can also try-out a middle part or hair sucked behind ears to highlight your cheekbones.

Heart Shape Faces

A heart shaped face is one that is broader at the forehead and narrower at the jawline. Long bobs or shoulder length hair or loose waves can help to highlight your features. You can also rock some styles such as the top knot or slicked back hair look. You can also try out some blunt bangs or side swept bangs as well.

If you are still not sure if the shape of your face simply ask your hairdresser. They would be able to show you some of the best haircuts and ways to style your hair in a way that would complement your features.
