Choosing the Right Hairstyle for your Face Shape

Did you know that the shape of your face plays a huge part in what hairstyle you should choose? If you choose the wrong hairstyle according to your face shape, it can be a real disaster. If you have a round face, a short haircut will make your face look even more round, which is probably not what you want.

A good hairstylist will know instinctively what shape will or won’t suit you. It is also very important and handy for you to understand face shape suitability as well as it will help you to understand what does and does not work for you and why.

There is a general rule that applies to face shape balancing and it is that you should try to achieve an oval shape, which is the most perfect and pleasing shape to the human eye. To do this, long faces need shortening, just as wide faces need lengthening. It’s quite simple really!

However, there are not just the two face shape options. There are many:

  • Oval
  • Round
  • Square
  • Heart
  • Triangle
  • Diamond
  • Oblong

After deciding which face shape best fits you, find the right hairstyle that works for that face shape. Then be sure to communicate with your hairstylist what you think best works for you.
