The Square Face

Long Haircut:

Framing waves are one of the best long hairstyles for a square face. The framing helps to soften the appearance of a square face.

Short Haircut:

If you’re feeling bold, try an urban pixie cute! This cute style is edgy, modern, and chic. It also helps to soften the harsh edges of a square face.

The Oval Face:

Long Haircut:

Long side swept bangs are a great options for an oval face! Almost any bang options will flatter this face type.

Short Haircut:

A textured bob will add width to an oval face. It can also shape and highlight cheekbones and jawline in an oval face that lacks definition.

The Heart Face:

Long Haircut:

Soft bangs will help to accentuate your eyes and draws the focus away from the pointed chin.

Short Haircut:

A shoulder length bob with curls helps to accentuate the jawline without making it too harsh.

The Diamond Face:

Long Haircut:

Long soft curls help to draw attention away from the cheek bones. Adding straight across bangs also helps to make the face look less long.

Short Haircut:

When it comes to short hair, try to avoid middle parts, as they can be unflattering. Go for a sleek short hairstyles with bangs, as they help to balance out facial features.

The Pear Face:

Long Haircut:

With a pear face you can’t go wrong with a long curly hairdo. You’ll want it in long layers to offset the harsh edges of a pear face.

Short Haircut:

For a short haircut look to a short bob that’s longer on top, this again helps to soften the pear shape.

 The Oblong Face:

Long Haircut:

These soft waves are great for an oblong face, as they fall near the cheekbones and help to define them.

Short Haircut:

This cut helps to shorter the look of an oblong face and give it a rounder feel.

The Round Face:

Long Haircut:

A long thick bang complemented by layers will help your round face look more elongated!

Short Haircut:

Usually a bob cut does not compliment a round face, but Cameron Diaz pulls off this look by adding long side swept bang, which help to counteract the roundness of her face.

The Rectangle Face:

Long Haircut:

For a rectangular face, layers are going to be your best friend! You want to avoid hairstyles that are too long and flat.

Short Haircut:

Again, even for short haircuts you’re going to want to stick with layers and volume.

Hopefully you’ll find the cut that’s right for you! Be bold and try something new!
