Flattering Hairstyles by Face Shapes
If you want the hairstyle to emphasize your beauty, you should know flattering hairstyles for your face shape. Here are the common face shapes and the best hairstyles for them.
- Oval Face
It is considered to be a perfect face shape. The face tapers towards the chin gradually, and there is an alluring harmony. You can try a high-volume bob to show off your facial features, large or small curls, high, low, and side buns, top knots, braids. The possibilities are truly endless!
- Round Shape
If you have a round face, then you should add some height on top and lengthen your face visually because it is the widest at the cheeks. Sleek and straight hair should be taboo because it makes the face rounder. Go for either a high or low ponytail with a bouffant at the crown, it will make your face visually slimmer. Besides, a top knot, a high bun, large face-framing waves, a short cut with asymmetric choppy pieces, a bob with an asymmetric fringe. Besides, hairstyles with a side part are another option you can consider.
- Square Shape
A square jawline is a prominent feature of this face shape. You should choose the hairstyles that add some softness to this angular face shape. A high pompadour, waves with a side parting, a ponytail with a forelock, swept to one side, buns and top knots with a long fringe (it is low to the eyebrows) will add femininity and softness.
- Long Shape
A long face means that it is elongated from the forehead to the chin. The hairstyle should visually minimize the length of the face. Volumetric curls, uneven bangs and pulled-back hair, side-swept bangs instead of blunt-cut bangs will hide your disadvantages and emphasize your merits.
- Heart Shape
This face features a pointy chin and sometimes a forehead is a prominent feature. Loose, wavy hair that frames the cheekbones, a fringe with a bun or braids, waves with different hair accessories will flatter the heart face shape.
- Diamond Shape
The diamond face shape is bony and it is the widest at the temples. The hairstyle shouldn’t be edgy, on the contrary, it should add some softness. Go for hairstyles that add some height in the cheekbone area. Besides, long, curly or straight hair is also an option.
