Choosing The Right Hairstyle According To Your Face Shape:
Many of us do not realize that only a particular kind of style
will go well with our facial structure. The right way, say stylists, is to find
what works with the structure of the face and looks flattering.
A flattering hairstyle can be the most important single factor in your appearance.
Not only does it tell about your character, it balances your body,
frames your face and complements your clothes and lifestyle.
A really professional haircut is a valuable investment,
because it will make you feel good as well as look good.
When choosing a new hairstyle you should look carefully
at the shape of your face. What kind of face do you have?
Choosing The Right Hairstyle For Oval Face:
If you have an oval face, you are lucky, as any style will suit you.
Choosing The Right Hairstyle For Round Face:
If you have a round face, you should aim to add length.
If you don't want long hair, part your hair on the side or add fullness on top.
Avoid a neat bob with a fringe. A round face gives an overall appearance
of roundness. A full face is flattered by a short, layered cut.
The top of the head should be given a ‘long’ look with a layered, curly style,
extending to the back. If making a topknot, get a lot of elongated tendrils out.
That balances your face. A lot of volume to the hair will give it a flat look.
A severe, tied back style also makes the face look rounder. Avoid it.
Choosing The Right Hairstyle For Square Face:
A wide forehead and square jawbone means you have a square face.
A style with the hair 2.5 cm or so, below the chin sits pretty on a square face.
If your hair is thick or wavy, you can go one length. With straight or fine hair,
you can opt for a slight angle in the front. Do not go in for bobs.
Blunt clipped bangs are also not recommended because they would emphasize
the squareness of your face. All that a square face needs is a little softening,
if the jawline is too heavy. Draw the attention away from the jaw with a
diagonal fringe forward from the hairline and around the ears if you wear
your hair up, or long loose hair with a bit of bounce below chin level.
Choosing The Right Hairstyle For Heart-Shaped Face:
A heart-shaped face is also easy to flatter. All you need to do is avoid
a heavy slab of fringe that will make your face into a triangle.
A softer fringe will help. Try a soft fringe too for a high forehead,
or try a very heavy fringe that stars quite a way back and is 'V' - shaped,
with the point of the 'V' in the centre of your forehead. If you have a receding
or double chin, you need to draw attention away from it. Your hair will look best
either piled to the top and back of your head, to balance the chin,
or hanging loose to hide it. A large nose needs a short, fluffy style,
for anything sleek or straight will only over-emphasize it.
Choosing The Right Hairstyle For Long Face:
A long, thin face with a narrow chin is oblong. A short, perky bob will go
very nicely with your kind of looks. It should be short at the back and the
angled chin length, in the front. Wearing it with a side parting, with bangs
brushed to the side, rounds out an oblong face.
A longer bob, about 5 cm below the chin, will also look good on this kind of face.
Layered hair will not suit you at all.
Long hair, too, makes the face seem lengthier.
