Do you push off getting a haircut because you're scared it's going to look bad? We've all been there, and the key is to get a haircut that flatters your face shape.
Choose your face shape
Goal: frame the face
Legendary stylist Garren told InStyle he recommends girls with straight hair to go for a pixie cut to downplay the roundness of the face. If you have long, straight hair, then ask for layers to frame your face. If you have wavy or curly hair, ask for a fringe, shoulder length bob.
Avoid: a bob that hits your chin since this will only enhance the roundness of your face.
goal: cancel the sharp jawline with a short pixie or bangs for longer hair
Focus on canceling out the defined, sharp jawline. Try going for a short pixie to add some edge. If you want longer hair, then go for shoulder length or a long style with some bangs and curls to frame the face.
Long + Oval
GOAL: ADD TEXTURE TO CREATE THE APPEARANCE OF VOLUME AND LIFT THE FACE
Short hair: go for angular bob to lift your face and enhance features like your cheekbones.
Mid-length hair: ask your stylist for subtle layers to add volume and texture to your hair.
Long hair: Get bangs and waves to create the illusion of fuller hair and volume.
Ladies with curly hair: avoid short haircuts and blunt bangs
Goal: enhance the cheekbones rather than the jawline
If you want to go short, recreate Cameron Diaz's look. If you have wavy or curly hair ask for an inch to 2 inches longer so it's easier to manage and style. Ladies with shoulder length hair, get bangs and a side parting to take focus away from the sharp and pointed chin. If you want to keep your hair long, ask for layers - keep it minimal. You want short layers that hit your cheekbones and frame the face.
Goal: add volume above or below the cheekbones to create balance
A long hairstyle with bangs looks best with the diamond face shape. However, if you want to go short, get a long bob with bangs that cut off above the cheekbones to complement your diamond face shape. If you have the time when you get ready, then curl your hair - wavy hair looks best with diamond faces as seen on Karlie Kloss.
Goal: Get fringes to balance and flatter your long face shape
One of the most flattering looks for ladies with oblong faces is fringes and long layers that hit the nose, chin and collarbone. You want to go for a style that balances the length of your face. If you want to go for short hair, ask your stylist for a cut that hits the collarbone. If you want long hair, ask for layers and blunt fringes.
