PERFECT CUT FOR THAT PERFECT LOOK
A haircut can make or break your looks and perhaps even change your life. So always bear in mind the shape of your face. The perfect haircut complements your best features, and boosts your confidence and adds that extra bounce to your step.
Getting the right haircut or hair style is not rocket science though. All it needs is to keep certain pointers in mind when deciding the haircut or style that you opt for. But first, analyse which haircut matches your face shape, you will be halfway to stealing the show.
You may need to counter the roundness with a suitable haircut. Long straight hair looks good on this type of face shape. You could also experiment with a defined pixie cut with long, side-swept bangs that fall on your cheekbones may be just the cut you need.
Almost any hairstyle or haircut will suit you. Just make sure not to add height to the hair as your face is already long. Long wavy hair with a sweeping fringe adds volume and will frame the face perfectly. Avoid a blunt cut, this will not go well with your face shape.
This might look oval, but the face is longer. Any haircut or style that gives volume and adds roundness to the face is just the thing to go for. You will look great with luscious wavy hair. Side-parted bob ending below the chin. Or shoulder length bushy curls might be a style you’d like to experiment with.
The angular face shape has both length and width at the same time. Draw attention away from the strong jawline. Think of curly textured hair. Brush hair inwards as this will break the strong angular shape. Or think of a long layered hairstyle with a centre parting and the ends brushed inwards will look equally charming.
Reduce the prominence of the jawline. Layered bob with side fringe or shoulder length hair with blowout curls. Or bold wavy hair with lots of layers reaching the cheekbones and the chin will balance your face. Avoid long, straight hair as it adds to the length of the face.
This shape makes the cheekbones the widest point of the face. Take the attention away from the narrow hairline and the pointed chin. Curls are the best way to cut down the width and balance the sharp chin. Shoulder-sweeping wavy hair with straight bangs. Or layered soft waves are perfect for this face shape.
This makes the forehead the focal point. You need draw the attention to your eyes and cheekbones. To do so, go for a evenly clipped pixie cut, chin-length wavy hair with side-swept wispy fringe. Or flowy wavy hair reaching your chin will frame your face well.
Makes the jawline look wider than the forehead. Draw the attention away from the jaw by having fringes and bangs. Wavy hair that reaches the shoulders or even longer, with side-swept bangs looks good on this face shape. You could also think of textured, short bob and look sexy.
