Fresh starts call for fresh hairstyles! Or sometimes, we just really want a new one! We’ve all seen a cute photo on the internet with a girl in a salon with a satisfied smile from her freshly styled hair. We save it, we browse some more, then we head down to our trusted hairdressers to get it copied only to hear them say NO. Seriously? Still can’t figure out what hairstyles flatter your face?
Worry not, babe. Unless you insist on it, your hairstylist knows best! It’s not that because the photo of the nameless girl from Pinterest is edited or carved to the best lighting and angles (it most probably is. Or not!), it’s just that maybe you’ve chosen a hairstyle that doesn’t fit your hair texture or in most cases, your face shape.
Of course, we’re pretty sure that you can rock any hairstyle anyway! But the thing is, there is magic in the right hairstyle. It can contour and highlight your features alone and we all want that don’t we! Read on to save yourself from the heartbreak of a hesitant hairstylist and know which hairstyles flatter your face for your next appointment!
Also known as the “baby face”, people with round shaped faces has equal width and length and no prominent angles or corners. A short hair is a round shaped face’s best friend as you want it to look your face more oval. You can even get a big YES with a pixie cut just add some volume at the top for an additional texture and angle.
Lucky you! An oval shaped face can get away with any hairstyle! However, choosing the best hair style for you is to try to avoid elongating your face. You can choose a shoulder length cut with layers to add more volume. If you want to keep your length, you can always opt for a side swept bangs to frame your face.
To make your sharp corners appear to be gentler, a little bit of softening can do the trick. Long curls, multiple layers and a short sideway fringe are your go-to’s when looking for the perfect style. But if you want to accentuate those beautiful angles, a short bob with blunt bangs can draw attention to that strong jawline!
Draw more attention to your eyes and cheeks! A heart shaped face looks good with soft, wavy curls that frame your face. You can sign up for a pixie cut or a bob too, just avoid the voluminous ones so we won’t be drawing more attention to your chin too much.
