The haircuts that work best on Facial Structure. Round, Oval, Square, Long & Heart-shaped faces!

Either your face shape is, round, oval, square, heart or long there will be haircuts that look best on you, and a few that aren’t flattering “unless you’re an oval, in which case you look good in practically everything”.

The key to a flattering hairstyle is one that creates the illusion that you have a perfectly oval face. There are cuts that help make a round face appear longer, a long face appear wider, a square jaw appear softer and large foreheads and double chins basically disappear.

It’s not magic, it’s just finding the right haircut.

There are other things to consider when choosing a style, like hair texture, your personality, your lifestyle and even your body type.

Before you venture into this, you need to know your face shape. It’s likely you have an idea of what yours is.

If you don’t have an obvious face shape, then your face shape may not really matter in choosing a flattering hairstyle. Women with oval faces tend to look fine in everything and should focus on other factors in choosing a hairstyle, like hair texture and their body shape.

The basic rule of finding a great haircut for your face shape is never highlight your problem spot, and try to create the illusion that you have an oval face.

For example:

Round face shaped, Avoid short curly or wavy hair that makes your round face appear rounder. The better option would be a cut that hits below the chin or longer.

If you have square face shaped, you may want to play down your strong, angular jaw. Texture, in the form of curls or choppy ends, does this brilliantly.

Oval face shaped, tend to look good in everything, but their faces can appear long, so think twice before adding height on top of the head in the form of a trendy, ginormous donut bun, a teased up-do or a spiky short cut. And always consider your hair texture. If your hair is thick or curly, avoid a blunt cut or risk looking like a pyramid.

Heart shaped faces, tend to come with pointy chins, Draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones instead.

And for us with long face shaped, girls, while we should avoid long hair, we can get away with it if we cut in long layers that hit at the cheekbones and the chin. Long, wavy hair also looks good on us because the waves add width to the sides of a long face.
