what’s your haircut for your face shape ?
1. Oblong face
Oblong face is called Rectangular face.
Rectangular faces are long and narrow with squared jaws and squared hairlines.
This face shape is very strong and can come off as too masculine if the hairstyle does not accentuate the face properly.
Bangs look very good because they balance out the length of the face and soften the forehead.
Wispy bangs and layers are very flattering. Side bangs look great as well.
- Bangs are very flattering, especially short or medium length
- Hairstyles that create fullness at the sides of the face
- Wispy or side swept bangs to soften the forehead
- Very long and flat hairstyles
- Up-do’s make your face look even longer
- Center parts bring too much attention to the top of the head

2. Square face
If your face is square, you have a wide jawline and a wide hairline and your face is not very tall.
Your hairstyle should aim to soften the edges of your jaw and forehead to make them look rounder.
Shorter hairstyles that accentuate the cheekbones and fall onto the face look great.
MEDIUM or LONG haircut look best. Hair worn over the forehead and long wispy curls or waves look
- Short to medium length hairstyles
- Wispy bangs that fall over the forehead
- Styles that accentuate the cheekbones
- Off center parts

4. Triangle face
A triangle shaped face has a wide jawline and a narrow forehead and is the most uncommon of face shapes.Also known as the pear face shape.
Short hairstyles with lots of volume and curl can look great with this face shape but be careful not to add to much bulk or volume to the top of the head.
You should choose a hairstyle that accentuates the forehead and narrows the jawline. Lots of fullness at the top of your head looks great (especially up-dos).

- Off center parts
- Hairstyles with fullness at the temples and crown
- Hairstyles that taper at the jawline

5. Heart face
If you have a heart shaped face, chin length cuts (like a bob or A-Line) are most flattering. If you add bangs, you can pretty much pull off any cut available, even very long styles as long as they accentuate the jawline and narrow the face.
Curly/wavy hairstyles look especially nice and draw attention away from your jawline.
Side swept bangs help to even out your face shape and are very flattering.

- A-Line cuts that end at the chin

- Short hairstyles without bangs
- Lots of volume at the crown

Your cheeks are the widest part of your face so avoid hairstyles that accentuate that part of your face.
