Ever gone to your hairdresser with the most adorable hairstyle in mind from a magazine or blog only to go back home frustrated? Consider the following when selecting a hairstyle for yourself.
You should know that the hairstyle you choose is entirely dependent on your face’s shape. One hairstyle on an oval face will not look the same on a triangle face. That is why your favorite celebrity’s hairstyle did not look the same on you. An oval face is famous for its versatility when it comes to hairstyles. It is well balanced, and even when it comes to proportions. With this kind of look, you are at liberty to try out many hairstyles as you can. Some of the celebs known with such type of face are Kim Kardashian and Rihanna.
When you have such kind of a face, your main aim is to avoid elongating the look further. For a short hairstyle, a blunt bob will be perfect for you. Bob, at the shoulder level with subtle waves, will add volume to the hair for an ideal look.
When you go for a ponytail, an extension will flatter the look. Remember, an oval face, the aim is showing off your well-balanced face, therefore avoid as much as possible to the hair on your face. If you decide to have the hair falling at the back, tuck it behind your ear on one side to show off the jawbone.
When styling hair for this kind of face, ensure that the face is clear. Avoid bangs because they will make your face look shorter. Hairstyles that are one length will make your face look longer, so avoid it.
The face looks exactly like a heart. The hairline and the temple are wider but then tapers to the small and narrow chin, which is slightly pointed. The forehead for this kind of face is prominent, and you are likely to have killer cheekbone if you have such kind of face. When imagining this kind of face, think of Tyra Banks and Kourtney Kardashian, who have typical heart-shaped faces.
With this kind, you have to choose either to make your tapper or accentuated the look make the lower slim side appear wider. If you want to flatter your natural face shape, pull the hair up into a knot or every day back ponytail. To make a face look wider at the slimmer side, choose a lob which clears the shoulders. For long hair, choose a deep side-parted hairstyle with loose waves breaking at the collarbone, to increase width at the jawline.
If you have a typical heart-shaped face, there is a chance that you have a widow’s peak hairline. When styling your hair, avoid forcing the middle part because it will be hard to have symmetrical parts. Instead, part the hair slightly off the middle and allow the hair to fall naturally on the side it chooses. Avoid the short bangs because they will make your jawline appear slimmer.
This face is very wide. The forehead, cheekbones, and the jawline have the same width. The most defined part of this face is the strong jawline. The typical square-faced celebrities are Olivia Wilde and Harley Baldwin.
When styling the hair for such kind of a face, you either choose to flatter the square-faced look or soften the hard jawline. To enhance the square face, go for big bangs and bob hairstyles to show off the strong jawline. To soften the jawbones, go for soft wispy bangs and allow them to fall on the side to create diagonal and soften the defined jawbones.
When styling the hair for a square face, avoid curls because they widen your jawlines. Instead, go for straight hair or loose curls.
People with round faces have the most youthful faces. Their faces have the same length and width with no defined jawbones, angles, or corners. They are mostly referred to as ‘’baby faces’’. The celebrities with round faces are people like Selena Gomez and Ginnifer Goodwin.
The best hairstyle of this kind of face is making it look narrower at the jawline and elongating the face. To achieve the thinner face illusion, leave some portion of the hair untucked on one side of the face. Short hairs are very appealing to this kind of face.
