What is the best hairstyle for your face shape!

What is the best hairstyle for your face shape!

A famous person once said, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” I don’t know about you but I trust Coco Chanel. Flicking thorough a magazine will provide you with lots of inspiration but how can you tell what will suit you and more importantly how can you maintain your gorgeous new look.

Hairstylist are not given enough credit when it comes to the art of cutting and there is definitely a lot a maths and science that goes into it. Using your face shape as a guide your stylist can transform your whole look in under an hour. You can create many illusions and highlight your best features by finding what works best for you.

The best way to figure out your face shape is to use a mirror and a marker or anything you can wipe away easily. Tie all your hair back and stand facing the mirror. Then draw the outline of your face as best you can. The shape should fit into one of the categories below.

Oval – You can do it all! Almost any style will suit you so don’t be afraid to be a little daring.

Round- Do – Keep it long and layered, this will balance out and make your face appear longer   Avoid – harsh lines especially above the chin, if you want a fringe keep it side swept.    Ask for volumizing products that help give your hair shape

Heart – You can go short or long, a cute pixie or a full head of curls but balance is key.    Avoid – hair that stops by your chin or short layers that will widen the top of your head.  Clays and waxes are perfect for sculpting short styles

Square – A strong jawline makes you model material and long flowing locks are the perfect style. Color techniques such as ombre really work to accentuate your features.
