We will briefly discuss the 5 different face shapes, hair cuts that flatter and cuts to avoid.
Oval This is the most versatile face. You can pull off almost any look — short, long, straight or wavy. No matter the length of your cut, you’ll look best with layers near your cheekbones, lips or chin — basically whatever feature you want to highlight. Styles that are super hot now: Choppy bobs, long waves and shoulder-skimming shags. Celebs who share your face shape: Think Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Jada Pinkett Smith
Avoid: Short layers that add height on top of your head.This will make your face appear long. If your hair is thick or curly, avoid a blunt cut. You’ll look like a pyramid. For more information, check out this photo gallery of best hairstyles for oval face shapes.
-Long or oblong- Bangs will create the width for your straight hair. A modern cut will include long, side-swept bangs. The appearance of width can also be achieved with chin-lenght bobs and cuts. Avoid short layers if you want curls and waves to add width. Too much volume on top will give your long face an even longer look. Ashlee Simpson, Giselle Bundchen share your face shape.
Avoid: Extremely long or very short cuts.
Round Your best bet are styles that fall right below your chin or add a little volume on top. Soft, graduated layers are also a great bet because they make your face appear slimmer and tend to remove bulk and weight from the sides. Bangs are flattering, but keep them long or sideswept. Go for wispy and tapered ends. These de-emphasize the roundness of your face. For more information, check out this photo gallery of best hairstyles for round face shapes. Celebs who share your face shape: Fergie, Kate Bosworth, Oprah Winfrey, Cameron Diaz, Kirsten Dunst, Michelle Williams, Catherine Zeta-Jones
Avoid:Blunt cuts with short hair
-Square-You should play down your angular jaw. Choppy ends or form of curls texture and soften your facial features. Short, spiky cuts and styles with layers starting at the jawline also minimize the angular jaw line. Demi Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow share your square facial features.
Avoid: Blunt cut bangs and one lenght bobs
Heart Your pointy chin tends to be the focal point of your face. Draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones instead with sideswept bangs (these act almost like arrows to your eyes or cheeks), brow-grazing fringe, a strong part and hair that falls at or below your jawline. Have short hair? Keep top layers soft and long. Long hair? Go for wavy layers that graze your cheekbones. Celebs who share your face shape: Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Rachel Bilson, Reese Witherspoon,Ziyi Zhang
Avoid: Choppy short layers and Blunt-cut bangs.
