Have you ever wondered why some women look great with a ponytail, but when you try it, it just doesn’t flatter you? That actually has a simple answer. Some hairstyles match your face shape, while others don’t.
Try these hairstyles based on your face shape. First, you must determine the kind of face you have: Round, Long, Oval, square, or heart. This article will show you the best hairstyles to match your face shape, for an outstanding hair day.
Women who have an oval face shape rarely resort to illusions, in order to hide disproportions. According to celebrities stylist Adam Livermore, this face shape is one of the most versatile shapes. He recommends shoulder-length hairstyles, and adding layers to give your hair some volume. Some famous celebrities go for a long rounded fringe, to highlight cheekbones. You could also go for side-swept bangs to show bright eyes and eyebrows.
If your face’s width and length have almost the same size, then you have a round face. Women who have a round face shape, often struggle with a ”baby-face.” Therefore, it is crucial to try hairstyles that conserve your youthful look, yet add some maturity to your look. For that, short hair really flatters round faces, and low ponytails also add a daring look to your face.
You have a square face if your forehead, jawline, and cheekbones are all the same width. Celebrities like Priyanka Chopra always choose hairstyles that flatter these attributes. Hair stylists often recommend women with a square face shape, to go for bangs. They also advise you to go for straight hair, with layers that start a few inches from the end to draw the eyes down and add length to your face.
One of the most common face shapes is long, in which forehead, cheekbones, and chin are of a similar width. When it’s time to do your hair, make sure to pick a look that softens your strong jawline. Side-swept chignon, messy low ponytail, or even a flat-iron waves. This will flatter your eyes and give them an attractive look. Why else do you think that Carrie Bradshaw always looked fabulous?
Finally, women with heart shaped face have a wider forehead and a sharper chin. For that matter, they are advised to pick their hairstyles wisely, in terms of balancing the visible width. You may want to try short cropped pixies, long flowy layers, and mid-cut long bobs, like halle Berry does. Another option could be loose waves for long hair, to draw attention to your collarbone instead of your forehead.
