Sometimes, you just want a change. Changing your hairstyle is a great way to feel like every day has something new and exciting about it—but perhaps you’re feeling unsure about what looks will pair well with your face shape. How bold can you go before you can’t pull it off anymore? Here are some tips on the best haircut for your face shape.
Bangs are great for diamond shaped faces. They help to soften your face shape. This face shape does well with medium to chin length hairstyles, with a variety of textures and styles to choose from. The main thing for diamond shaped faces is to avoid too many layers in your style, and to stay away from pixies and really short haircuts. This shorter hairstyles don’t balance well with this face shape.
Wavy long locks or fun, pixie cuts look great on a heart shaped face. Shoulder-length hair also works well, but the general goal for people with this face shape is to frame their face well. Long bangs or choppy layers are great. Long, layer-less styles are not.
Long hairstyles, short cuts that frame the face, or blunt cuts that end below shoulder length do well for square faces. Side partings are best, but feathery bangs are doable as well. Long bands simply help to soften the jawline better on square faces. Stay far away from pixie cuts though!
Round faces flourish when you choose haircuts that give the sense of lengthening the face. Long, medium, and chin-length styles go well with round faces. Blunt cuts, straight fringe, and short bobs are not ideal cuts for this shape. Go for wispy or tapered edges.
This face shape is the ideal face shape. If you see a style you love, try it! Your face shape is compatible with any and all kinds of hairstyles.
