Hairstyles for Every Face Shape
Though there are literally hundreds of women's hairstyles out
there, not all of them are meant for your particular face
In fact, if you choose wrong it could mean all the difference between a flattering new style and a hair disaster.
Finding out what face shape you have can be confusing.
Find out with these tips and know how to pick the women's hairstyles that will suit you best.
Heart Shaped Faces:
This is defined by a shape that is narrow at the jaw and wider
at the cheekbones and forehead.
Look for women's hairstyles like a chin length bob or a longer style with layers.
Always avoid anything that has a lot of height on top.
Think Nicole Richie's bob or Jennifer Love Hewitt's long hair.
Your face is as wide as it is long but with a definite square
shape at the jaw.
Look for women's hairstyles that give softness by wisps or layers around the face.
Off centre parts are great as well.
The layered, medium length of Sandra Bullocks hair is a great example.
Diamond Face Shape:
This shape is defined by wide cheek bones with the forehead
being both narrower than the cheeks and of equal width to each
Luckily, this face shape lends itself to most women's hairstyles.
The only things to avoid are women's hairstyles that covers up the dramatic shape of your face…show it off!
Think the many styles of Cameron Diaz.
To find out if your face shape is oval measure it.
If it is one and a half times longer than it is wide, you have an oval face.
Examples of women's hairstyles that would look good on you are Paris Hilton's short bob or the slightly layered longer hair of Eva Longoria.
Your face is round if, when measured, it is as wide as it is
Styles to avoid are bobs that end at your chin and anything that wisps onto your face as both will only accentuate the roundness.
Instead opt for longer styles that will give the appearance of a longer face.
Good women's hairstyles for round faces are any that give height on the top, or layered longer styles like Kate Winslet's.
These faces are longer than they are wide.
Short to medium lengths are best for this face shape, especially ones that have body on the sides to lend width.
Bangs can also help shorten the appearance of the face.
Women's hairstyles for this face shape are Victoria Beckham's bob with lots of volume.
