It's a well known fact that choosing a hairstyle that matches our face shape greatly will increase the chances of having a hairstyle that will meet most of our greatest expectations. This principle is true when trying to select the perfect layered hairstyle as well. Discover the best layered hairstyle for your face shape.

Layered hairstyles are a great way to spice up your look without sacrificing hair length or making tons of adjustments. A couple of well chosen layers can give extra texture to the hair and can create interest and even draw attention from certain facial features that might be less than perfect. While the style of the layers might be different as the fashion trends change, it's always a good idea to choose a hairstyle that matches our personal characteristics and that allows us to take advantage of all the perks a suitable hairstyle can easily provide.

Here are a few ideas you can try to ensure that you look fabulous every time:


Oval face
Since the oval face shape is considered the ideal face shape, those who are fortunate enough to have this face shape will have no difficulties choosing a hairstyle that suits them regardless of their hair length. There are virtually no restrictions when it comes to the style of the layers which means that the only thing that should be kept in mind is to avoid hairstyles that are too overwhelming for our facial features. Try to avoid heavy bangs.

Round face
Long hairstyles are an excellent choice for round faces as they can minimize the roundness and elongate the face more efficiently than any other type of hairstyle. To ensure the success of a long layered hairstyle or medium hairstyle it's important to make sure that the layers surpass the chin line because when the layers match the chin line the cheekbones are emphasized creating the impression of even more roundness.

Soft wispy layers that add height at the crown are excellent choices for elongating the face and getting it closer to the oval shape which is considered the perfect one. Layered shag hairstyles look great for round faces. The key to choosing the perfect short hairstyle is to choose one that adds height at the top of the head and to avoid heavy bangs.

Square and rectangular face shapes
Layered hairstyles work perfectly for those that have a square or rectangular face shape because they can bring out the best of the facial features while also providing enough balance. When it comes to short hair styles, layered asymmetrical cuts and boyish spiky cuts are the way to go.

Razored hair cuts are another option for those who love short crops. When it comes to medium hairstyles, graduated layered hairstyles as well as wavy layered bob hairstyles will prove to be suitable choices for softening the harsh features of square faces.

For those who like long, luscious locks there are several styling options that can be tried to achieve a flattering style. When choosing a long hairstyle it's important to choose one that downplays the prominent jaw and reduces the broadness of the forehead. For the later problem adding side swept bangs will prove to be an easy fix. Dramatic layers and loose curls are perfect examples of styles that will surely compliment a square face.

Heart face shape
Those who have a heart face shape should choose hairstyles that balance and lift their facial features. When choosing a layered hairstyle for this face shape it's important to choose one that doesn't add height at the top of the head.

Soft long layers will draw attention from the narrow chin and a few strategic curls will soften the facial features even more. Top soft layers will be a good choice for women that have short hair while those who have medium hair will most likely benefit from choosing layered hairstyles that frame their face. Layered wavy hairstyles are another great choice for those who have medium and long hair.

Diamond face shape
The main goal for those that have a diamond face shape is to shorten the length of the face and to reduce the size of the cheeks. Similar to the oval face shape almost any hairstyle could look good on you so you have a lot of freedom when it comes to experimenting with layered hairstyles. However, it's best to make sure that you choose layers that add volume at the forehead area as well as on the chin area for best results.

Don't be afraid to take advantage of the versatility that this face shape can provide by using your skills to recreate a variety of edgy hairstyles by taking advantage of the multitude of styling techniques available nowadays.
