Hairstyle Guide | The Perfect Hair For Your Face Shape

I think one of the many mistakes women make is to blindly follow what’s trendy even if it doesn’t suit them. Our bodies vary in shape and height. Your friend may be able to pull off a retro look, but when you try it, you look like just another poser trying to rock a style that’s not suited for you! This is true with hairstyles as well. Wear the wrong hairstyle, and you’ll look like a walking-talking mess. But how do you know which hairstyle suits you best? Refer to this handy hairstyle guide!

This hairstyle guide courtesy of will definitely make choosing the right hair for your face shape easy and convenient!

Hairstyle Guide | The Perfect Hair For Your Face Shape

1. Oval Face

Oval Face | The Ultimate Hairstyle Guide For Your Face Shape

Do you have an oval face? Then consider yourself lucky. You tend to have some features of all the other face shapes (e.g., rounded jawline, which you find among women with a round face), so almost any type of hairstyle works for you. You have every right to be adventurous with your look!

2. Round Face

Round Face | The Ultimate Hairstyle Guide For Your Face Shape

While round faces are cute, they tend to lack one important face element: structure. Since the length and width of the face are equal, there’s no angle. Thus, this hairstyle guide points you to styles that create the illusion of structure such as waves, parting hair, and layers. In the meantime, avoid hairstyles that follow or frame your face’s round shape.

3. Square Face

This one is quite the opposite of the round face since the angles are strong. The chin and the jawline are defined. What you need are hairstyles that can help soften the look and the illusion of some roundness around the cheeks. In the meantime, avoid hairstyles that reveal your jawline and chin.

4. Long Face

It’s easy to confuse the long face shape with diamond and heart shapes. To easily spot the difference, check the angle of your face. If you don’t have a pointy chin or a strong angle but your face tends to be long, well, you have a long face. :)

When it comes to the best hairstyle, you want one that breaks the length of your face, so to speak, and creates width, which explains why curls work best for you. Avoid wearing your hair very long.

You share the same face shape with Liv Tyler, Meryl Streep, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Sarah Jessica Parker


5. Heart Face

A distinctive feature of women with a heart-shaped face is the pointy chin, so you want to pick hairstyles that draw the eyes away from that area. You can also soften the strong angles around the chin area by opting for waves and layers.

You share the same face with Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel, Katy Perry (because she looks like Zooey, don’t you think?), and Jennifer Love Hewitt


6. Diamond Face

The diamond face is actually considered the rarest among all face shapes, and it sometimes looks like the heart shape because of the pointed chin. The main difference? The cheekbones are wide. For this face shape soft, side-swept bangs are great since they help hide your narrow forehead while lobs and hairstyles that fall straight to the side of your face help emphasize the jaw and chin and “camouflage” your cheekbones.
