The oval-shaped face is what they say, the perfect face shape, though not all people have this as some are born square-shaped, round-shaped, heart-shaped or even diamond-shaped. So what hairstyle is best for the different kinds of face shapes?
It is worthwhile for you to take your time and try to see what kind of face shape you have before going to the parlor. Since most stylists would just cut your hair the way you want it, it's best for you to know what kind of hairstyle would suit you the best.
OVAL SHAPE. People with an oval-shaped face can get away with any kind of hairstyle. Long, short, curly, straight, wavy, it would suit them. Although one must remember not to exaggerate your hairstyle like cutting your bangs super short, instead of emphasizing your oval face, you would look as if you have a round-shaped face.
DIAMOND SHAPE. The flaw of this face shape is that you have a longer face, wider checks and a narrow forehead and chin. Give yourself bangs to shorten the look of your face. It is also advisable for you to part your hair sideways instead of the middle so that it will not point out to the line where your face elongates.
ROUND SHAPE. The important thing when you have a round-shaped face is to never give extra volume to your hair, for it would only emphasize its roundness. Soft curls or wavy locks would be okay. Do not give yourself bangs since your round faces are equal in all portions, bangs would make your face shorter. Also give your hair a little height to lengthen your face.
SQUARE SHAPE . People with a square-shaped face have wider jaws. When giving yourself bangs, do not go for the full bangs look as it would highlight the squareness of your face, long side bangs would work. Remember that you must take away the attention from your jaw, give yourself layers to soften it.
HEART SHAPE. Heart-shaped faces needs to lengthen their faces since it's more on width. If you desire bangs, it must not be heavy and full, side bangs are okay. It is also advisable for you to part your hair in the middle to create an illusion of length.
Since oval is the desired face shape, remember to sport a cut that would make you look as though you have an oval-shaped face, or at least close to it.
