How to Choose Your Next Haircut Based on Your Face Shape

We guess that you’re already aware of it, but we’re here to remind you. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all haircut. In fact, people should think of haircuts just as they think of clothes. And next time when you go for a new hairstyle, you’d better know in advance which hairstyle fits your face shape the best. An inch too short, and it can make your face appear too round for your preferences. An inch too long, and you miss on looking your best. But, before giving you tips on how to choose your hairstyle based on your face shape, you must learn how to identify what face shape you have. There are a ton of guides that will help you measure and find out what face shape you have, so use those in the process. Once you determine your face shape, you can look into several hairstyles. And we have some suggestions below.

Haircut suggestions for a heart-shaped face

Women with heart-shaped faces should aim to draw attention to their eyes and cheekbones. Trust us, with a face shaped like that those are extremely flattering features you have. Try to add as much volume as possible on the sides or try to go for bangs. These are two hairstyle ideas that will work wonderfully in your case.

Haircut ideas for long face

Women with long face shapes should think of the following: the longer your hair is, the longer will make your face appear. Go for short hairstyles and haircuts that add volume to your hair or make your face look shorter. Bangs are a great suggestion, in this case.

Oval face haircut suggestions

With an oval face, you can go for whatever hairstyle you want because most of them flatter your natural beauty. However, if you’re not the perfect oval shape, follow the suggestions for other face shapes. For instance, if you have a long oval face, follow the ideas offered to long-faced women.

Ideas for round faces

Women with a round face should look into haircut lengths below their chin. Haircuts that are too short will make your face appear even rounder or will make your cheek area look even wider. Instead, go for short hairstyles that hit just below your chin. Go for volume on the top of your head. This will elongate your face and a hairstyle like this will fit you like a glove.

How can you cut your hair if you have a square face?

When you have a square face, you ill want to tame a little your “sharp edges”. Fortunately, there are several hairstyles that will flatter your natural beauty. Go for choppy ends and more texture. Curls also do a wonderful job at taming your angular features, so try to style your hair in this fashion.

Although these are great suggestions to look your best next time when you leave the salon, keep in mind that you should also go for a hairstyle that makes you feel your best.
