If you’ve been wearing a long or medium-length hairstyle all your life and feel as if the time has come for a change, don’t rush to the salon. Sometimes rash hairstyle decisions can do more harm than good. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that you have to consider the face type before going for any new hairstyle. Whatever looks great on one person (especially if it’s a celebrity on a magazine cover) might look completely different on you!
Different Face Shapes & Hair Styling
About 50% of women are not happy with their hairstyles after they get out of the stylist chair. You can prevent this problem by making research in advance.
1. Oval Face Type – Great Match!
If you have an oval face shape, don’t worry, any short haircut will look good on you. In fact, any haircut you choose will look good.
2. Heart Shape Face – Choose a Pixie
Pixies look good on oval, heart-shaped and square faces. They appear the most beautiful on girls with heart-shaped face types. Just make sure not to add too much volume on top.
3. Long Faces – Make a Shaggy Lob
If you have a long face shape, allow yourself to enjoy a shaggy lob. This short hairstyle can make your face look more oval and give your head the volume it might be lacking.
4. Square Face – Pick a Bob with Bangs
A bob with bangs does a wonderful job making your square face look slightly rounder. If you have straight hair, you have great grounds for experiments. Girls with curly locks will need more maintenance.
5. Round face – Try Angled Bob
An angled bob can make your round face look slightly longer. If you add side-swept bangs, it’s a perfect hairstyle!
Now that you’ve studied which face shapes look good with short hair, you are ready to make a decision. Browse some photos online to see how these hairstyles look with your face type. Good luck!
