Hair Styles to Suit your Face




Beautiful hair is the crowning glory of an attractive woman. So hair care is an extremely important aspect of beauty. But you should make sure that you have a style that suits your face and your hair type. Of course, it should be in fashion too. Although, sometimes the simplest of styles are the best.

Based on Type of Hair

Let us see which styles go well with your type of hair. 

  • Thin and fine: If your hair is thin and fine, keep it short and fluffy
  • Medium or coarse: This hair can handle most styles
  • Heavy or thick: If your hair is heavy or thick, keep it at a medium length or it will not hang well.

What kind of hairstyle makes you look glamorous?  Well, would you believe it that it actually depends on the shape of your face.  Faces are of different shapes.  You must figure out the shape of your face so that you can decide which are the best hairstyles that will make you look like a model. 

What is the shape of your face?

In order to determine the shape of your face, you will need to measure it.  Measure your face from top to bottom and from side to side.  If your face is oval shaped, then the length will equal to one and a half times the width.  When the length of your face equals the width, then you have a round face.  Triangular shaped faces have wide chins and narrow foreheads.  Lastly, square shaped faces have a jawline, cheekbone and forehead almost equal in width. 

Heart-shaped face

In order to express your features, you must try to diminish the width of your forehead and make your jaw wider.  If you want bangs, wear them full and curly.  Wear your hair fuller at the top than near your jawline.  Your hair should be either short or of medium length and point your hair towards your face, since this will help to widen your chin.  If you love short cut bobs up to your chin, then you should definitely get one, since your heart-shaped face will make you look like you just walked out of a magazine. 

Oval faces

Since, you are blessed with an oval face, mostly any hairstyle will look good on you.  You can wear your hair short, medium or long.  A wonderful hairstyle would be one in which you do a side or a center parting and let your hair rest on your shoulders.  In addition, you may also wear your hair slicked back or pulled back.  However, it is advisable to have your hair away from your face and not to have too full bangs.  Your face shape is adaptable to almost any hairstyle and that is why you should experiment and see which one you like the best. 

Round faces

If you have found out that you have a round face, remember either to have short hair or chin length hair.  You should consider layering your hair right from the top and keep your hair close to your face.  Do not cut your hair very, very short and have a haircut that is rounded and ends at your chin.  This will exaggerate your face shape even more.  Straight bangs are not recommended, but if you love bangs, you should curl them and wear them to the side.  These types of hairstyles will make your face look longer, which is what you want to strive for.  Do not keep a lot of hair near the sides of your face and near your ears.  However, wispy curls curled towards your face is recommendable.  The point of all these hairstyles is to make your face look longer and less rounder and to accentuate your beautiful features.

Square Face

A square face has a very sharp angled jawline and has square shaped eyebrows.  In order to lessen these features, you should strive for hairstyles that emphasize the cheekbones.  Hairstyles worn in curls and waves will give shape to your square face.  The length of hair that is perfect for you is about 1-1/2" below the chin or to have shoulder length hair.  Your hair at these lengths will help to alleviate the squareness of your jaw line.  It is advisable not to let your hair hang and better to wear a side part than a center part.  Any freeflowing hairstyle for this shape will look wonderful.

Triangular shaped face

Since you have a triangular shaped face, you want to narrow the chin and widen the forehead.  Keep your hair away from your face and ear to widen your forehead.  In addition, you should angle your hair towards the chin.  You should keep your hair length at least up to your chin and cut your hair in lots of layers.  Also if you let your hair loose tuck it behind your ears so that it will help to highlight your eyes and increase the width around this area.  In addition, instead of parting your hair in the center, try parting it off-center and see the model look you have always loved!
