When we choose hairstyles, there are two things that we want to achieve. We want to enhance our best features and minimise or hide our worst features. That is the whole idea of haircuts-and also promoting our personal style, of course!
You can use expensive palettes for face contouring, but nothing is as essential as knowing the best hairstyles for different face shapes and understanding what works best for you. No matter what you want to enhance or minimise, there is a practical and beautiful idea for that. Take a look here.
- Long Chin.
Though many ladies think that a long chin is a bad thing, the case is different as long as you know the right style to work with this feature and not in contrary to it. There are many haircuts for long faces that work to make your chin look tapered and an impression of wider cheekbones.
When selecting hairstyles don’t go for the styles that end at your chin. This will enhance the feature you are working to minimise. Including bangs in your hairstyle is a good idea since they work to balance your chin and shorten the long face shape.
If you don’t like bangs tell your stylist to trim the layers that reach your ears and your cheekbones to attract more attention to that part.
If you have long chin choose a side part. This tilts the lines of your face to either side hence giving balance to your chin. This draws more attention to your eyes and the rest of your facial features. A side part is an ideal hairstyle for women with oval face shapes. It enhances dimension and interest to this type of face which is considered an ideal shape of the face.
- Chubby Cheeks.
A gorgeous bob is one of the best hairstyles for women with chubby faces. By allowing the hair to grow up to the neck base and then chopping it at that point, the jawline is well highlighted, and attention is drawn to the features of your face, and your cheeks are less pronounced.
You can also opt for classic retro waves to enhance definition and interest to your round face and pronounced cheeks. Give your style a tousled effect for a more modern, regular look.
It may appear you are working against what you want to achieve by cutting the hair short if you have round face shape, but this is usually to your advantage if you rock a pixie. A pixie hairstyle with a messy top gives an illusion of a long face and makes your face appear shiny.
- Square Face.
Square faces might not always appear fuller, but you would want to make your face seem longer for a balanced width. Face-framing hairstyles are ideal for ladies with strong jawlines.
Women with round face shapes are advised to wear angled bobs where the frontal hair is maintained longer and gradually becomes shorter and stacked at the back. The haircut has a slimming impact on your face.
If you are more interested in rocking longer hair, then you should include layers that frame your face to make your strong features appear soft.
Many ladies with more prominent noses don’t like this feature. However, if you have one, it is not a bad thing. There is a way you can draw away attention from it and attract attention to other admirable facial features. Soft, wavy layers assist in balancing out your features and minimising attention from your face.
Wearing side-swept bangs help draw attention away from your big nose and draw it elsewhere. Ensure the bangs are swept well. Don’t use blunt bungs as these will work contrary to what you want.
- Low or High Hairline.
For the ladies with a shorter forehead, you can make it look otherwise. Opt for a messy updo and ensure there is enough volume at the centre of your head. This increases the height of your forehead.
On the other hand, if you have a high hairline, go for bangs. Shaggy bangs are easy to maintain and do an excellent job of softening your big forehead.
