Best Hairstyle for Every Face Shape

Posted by Peter Buijs on

Are you thinking of getting a haircut soon but are unsure of what style would suit you best? Have you ever walked into a salon and asked for the same haircut as your favorite celebrity, only to find that it didn’t quite flatter you as well as it did your inspiration? It may be because you didn’t get the right haircut to suit your face shape. Read on to find out what face shape you have, and what hairstyles suit your face shape best:

Square Face
If your face is quite wide, with your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline almost all the same width, you have a square face shape. Your type usually has a strong or prominent jawline, and fortunately for you, photographs quite well! What hairstyle you should get depends on whether you want to emphasize your face shape, or to soften it. If the former, a short bob or striking blunt bangs will really enhance your square shape and show off your jawline. But if you’d rather soften your jawline, wearing your hair straight, long and layered will do wonders to draw attention away from your jaw and to lengthen your face. To achieve this, try wearing hair extensions from

Round Face
If your face is pretty much the same in width and length, without any prominent angles or corners, you have a round face shape. This type tends to look younger, often being referred to as “babyfaces.” This means that you can get away with more playful, youthful haircuts. To elongate your face and make it look more oval, you’ll need to create more angles around your face, which you can easily do by wearing your hair with a deep side part. Another neat trick is to tuck or pin your hair back on one side of your face and leave the other side untucked. Lastly, try pulling your hair up into a high ponytail ala Ariana Grande to instantly create the illusion of a longer, more oval-shaped face.

Heart-Shaped Face
If your forehead is much wider than the rest of your face and you have a narrow or pointed chin, you have a heart-shaped face. This type tends to look quite feminine, and often also features beautiful, prominent cheekbones. If you have an especially wide forehead, however, you may want to balance out your features or to at least soften the contrast. To do this, opt for a shoulder-length hairstyle, preferably one with lots of volume like big curls or textured waves. This helps to create the illusion of a wider jawline, adding volume to the bottom half of your face and balancing out your face shape.

Oval Shape
If your face is longer than it is wide, with a gently rounded hairline and a jawline that is slightly narrower than your forehead, you have an oval face shape. Fortunately for you, this face shape is generally considered to be the most versatile and can pull off almost any hairstyle. Feel free to experiment and go as wild as you dare!

If you’re up for a dramatic change, consider getting a playful pixie cut, or try some full bangs. If you’d rather keep it classic, you can’t go wrong with a sophisticated long bob that just grazes the bottom of your chin, or long, flowing waves.

Remember that this is only a guide to help you determine what hairstyle might best suit your natural face shape, but then again, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to beauty. At the end of the day, you should get the hairstyle you feel most comfortable and confident in, and whether or not it breaks the “rules,” wear it loud and proud. As long as you feel beautiful, you can rock whatever hairstyle you want.
