Style your hair according to your face


Though human beings have the same features, the shape of the face differs from one to other.
Therefore, each face shape has its own best hairstyles that enhance its look maximally. Knowing your face shape will help you pick the best hairstyle, because a particular hairstyle may look good on a lady with oblong face but might not look that great on you just because you have an oval face.
There are six different face shapes namely, oval, round, square, oblong, heart and diamond.
What really differentiates a shape from another are; the forehead, the cheekbones, jaw line and the face length. Below are tips on how to determine the shape of your face and the best hairstyles suitable for each shape.
Oval shape: if you have an oval face shape, the length of your face is about one and a half times its width. Your face is therefore shaped like an inverted egg; wider at the top than the bottom. You tend to also have wider forehead than chin. If you fall into this category, you don’t need to worry, just consider it the perfect face shape when it comes to pulling different hair looks. Other face shapes have limited selection of hairstyles but if you have an oval shape, you need to maintain the shape by not choosing a style that could make it appear longer or wider.
Round shape: you can include yourself into this category if the width of your forehead, cheekbones and jaw are equal.
Your jaw is slightly rounded as opposed to angular. Also, round faces tend to be soft with non angular features and full cheeks. It becomes more obvious when you gain weight but there are still a lot of slim people with round faces.
You can definitely rock these shape by trying hairstyles that will make your face appear longer and leaner and less round and these hairstyles include: long bob hairstyle, shoulder length hairstyles and side swept bangs because they make your face slimmer and tends to remove weight from the sides. You must avoid short hairstyles such as classic bobs because not all short hairstyles will look good on you.
Square shape: you are likely to have a square face if your face falls into the following requirements: the width of your forehead, cheekbones and jaw are equal. You have sharp angular features including a sharp jaw line. Women with strong angular features tend to age well. Long bobs and side swept bangs will do well on you and likewise super short edgy cuts will also fit well on you. You will do well if you can avoid one length bob hairstyles especially chin length and wide, blunt bangs because all they do is highlight your angular features.
Oblong shape: They are also known as long face and are around one and a half times longer than they are wide. The cheeklines running from temple to jaw line are straighter, but have a more tapered feel going towards the round chin. They are very similar to the rectangle shape but have smoother chin and jaw line. You can do well with this type of shape if you stay off extra long hairstyles that end beyond the shoulders. You will look great with short or fringed bangs, chin length bobs because they tend to highlight your jaw line showing off your bone structure. A shoulder length straight hairstyle is the best length for an oblong shaped face.
Heart shape: if you do not find yourself in the aforementioned faced shapes, then probably you fall into the category of people under this shape. Heart shaped face are wider at the brow and narrower at the chin, which typically adds up to give you a killer cheekbones. Soft side swept bangs accentuate your eyes and draw focus away from a pointy chin. Choose a style that will create volume around the bottom of your face. But whatever your hair type, don’t have your hair too long and ask for soft layers to soften your chin area.
Long curly locks will look fantastic on you; a short bob shape is also a safe style. Don’t let it longer than your jaw line, a shorter wispy fringe is low-key but will look gorgeous on you. Avoid soft, full styles that emphasise upper face because they will make you look top heavy.
