The secret for the perfect haircut is your face shape. There are many different type of face
shapes. There’s oval, square, round, heart, oblong and diamond. For oval face shape, usually the length of your face is more than the width, with the forehead being the widest part of the face. The most flattering for this face shape tend to be long layers, shoulder-length waves, full bang, layered bob, or a side-swept pixie. Square faces have equal lengths horizontally and vertically, with a strong angle jaw and minimal curve at the chin. A wavy shag with wispy fringe, soft side-swept bangs, or long layers with fringe work best. Round faces have equal length and width ratio, soft and round features, and the checks seem to stand out. Round faces look the best with a haircut that elongates the face, like long straight hair, long voluminous waves, shaggy bobs, and swoopy bangs with cropped sides. A heart face shape is when you have a wider forehead and a slimmer chin. Heart face shape look best with blunt bangs, wavy layers or a chin-length bob with bangs. Oblong face shape is when the distance from chin to forehead is a little longer than distance from ear to ear. It’s recommended to get long layers with a side-swept or feathered bang, the layers will add movement and texture to the hair. Diamond face shapes are defined by high cheekbones, a pointy chin and a narrower forehead. It looks best with short-cropped hair, or you can keep it long with face-framing layers. Of course, everyone is free to try any look you have in mind. Hopefully, these tips will help you decide on the perfect look you want.
