– Square, oval, round, long… Know your face shape to get the best haircut!
In case you would like to get a new hairstyle, the most important factor that you have to take into consideration is your face shape. To know what face shape you have, you should pull your hair back from your forehead and trace the shape of your head with lipstick on a mirror.
Here are some of the best haircuts for your face shape:
1. Salma Hayek – Square face with soft edges
If this is the face shape that you have, then you should avoid the sharp cuts at all costs. The good news is that you could have any length you like, just make sure that there are shorter strands around the face to frame it. The best thing you could do is to have graduated layers, piece-y bangs or razored ends.
2. Emma Stone – Round face with spectacular eyes
If you happen to have a round face, you should know that the uneven cuts look the best on you. In order to achieve this, you should have different lengths. In order to make the face look slimmer, you could go for a deep side part and also consider getting long side swept bangs. To make sure that the bangs will stay in place, you could use a light finishing cream.
3. Kate Bosworth – Round face with light colored hair
It is possible that your face looks something like the face shape of Kate Bosworth and in this case you could choose to have a center part. It is best to go for long layers and for length a few inches longer than shoulder length. The layers should start at your jaw line.
4. Tyra Banks – Oval face with bouncy curls
Having an oval face of this kind is the best thing that could happen to you. This is because it is very versatile. You could have a cropped cut, blunt bob or layered styles; no matter what you like, you can be sure that it works for you. You may be thinking about getting longer bangs to make the distance between your forehead and chin look smaller, creating more advantageous proportions.
5. Fergie – Smooth and silky look for a round face
For such a round face, the best thing you could do is to add definition to the face shape. The easiest way to achieve this is to pull back the hair into a sleek ponytail, at ear height. The secret in this case is to have smooth hair and to avoid bouncy and frizzy hairstyles because they could add bulk. As a piece of advice, you should apply some lotion before you pull your hair back.
6. Ginnifer Goodwin – Defined pixie for youthful looking round face
The women with round face look simply amazing if they have a pixie hairstyle – just like Ginnifer Goodwin’s. This is because all the small pieces emphasize the cheekbones and draw the attention to the eyes. This is one of the best haircuts for round face since it helps you to highlight the cheekbones. To get some definition and texture, you should apply some pomade on your damp hair.
7. Taylor Swift – Blunt bangs for long shape faces
Those women who have a long face shape should be thinking about getting blunt bangs cut across the forehead. The best option is to have the bangs cut to brow length, because this way the bangs break up the face and they create the illusion of a wider face. The key in this case is to have the bangs totally blunt.
8. Paris Hilton – Asymmetrical bob for square face with defined features
The bob is one of the trendiest hairstyles of the season, and so it is no wonder that a lot of celebrities have it. In case you have a square face shape just like Paris Hilton, one of the best haircuts that you can have is to get an asymmetrical bob. This way you can soften the edges of your face and you can create the illusion of proportionality and harmony.
9. Hillary Duff – Oval face with layered center part and soft curls
Shoulder length hair and a center part work like magic for oval faces. The soft waves can make your face look less severe. Such curls can be achieved with the help of hair spray that can help you get the beachy waves. In case you would like to have more texture, you could wrap random sections of your hair around a curling iron.
10. Reece Witherspoon – Heart shaped, pointy chin face with side swept layered long bangs
The girls with heart shaped faces have to think about the fact that the top of their face is wider than the rest, and so they need to balance it. This can be done with the help of long, side swept bangs. Their purpose is to draw the attention downwards, i.e. towards the eyes.
11. Kerry Russell- Heart shaped face and curly hair with structured layers
Sometimes curly hair could get heavy, and so you should make sure that the ends are tapered. It is best if the hairstylist cuts out the heaviness of the hair, and this is why curly hair is usually cut dry. To have your hair in its best shape, you should cut back on shampooing and make sure that you use the right conditioner.
12. Keira Knightley – Square face with thin bob
You could have a bob even if you have a square face shape. You should be thinking about a soft bob of chin length. If you would like to have some texture and to avoid a severe look of the face, apply some dry shampoo on the hair and then straighten the ends.
