Just because a hairstyle looks fabulous on your favorite celebrity, does not indicate that the same haircut shall compliment the shape of your face. A professional hairstylist will be able to take a desired look and adjust it to a flattering one. Can you identify what shape your face is?
Study a picture of yourself or while looking in a mirror, pull the hair away from the face and ascertain the shape by following the hairline from the top of the hairline to the top of the ears, and then to the bottom of the chin. The most popular shaped faces are oval, square, round and heart, with variations in between.
The Hairstyler.com depicts additional shapes with examples, as well as a valuable tool to try on thousands of styles and fifty colors. However, to utilize the makeover application, a $14.95 yearly subscription fee is required, which could be worth it, if you are looking for a drastic change.
Consider when looking for hairstyles, that a jagged, face framing cut will soften the corners and add length to a round face. Triangle faces look great with bangs and layers that narrow the forehead and add width to the chin. A full body style accents the cheekbones, yet softens the jawline on square shaped faces and ovals are perfectly balanced to suit any style.[i]
