The right hairstyle for your face shape can be hard to find, especially when the look you’re lusting after doesn’t actually suit your head shape. First things first you need to identify what shape your face is – there’s heart, round, oval and square. Once you have determined which one is right, it’s best to look at other people with the same shaped face (more specifically celebrities) who are working the look and making it look great.
Hairstyles for round faces can seem quite difficult, you want to be able to give the appearance of a slimmer more defined face, but also a longer one. A lot of celebrites with rounder faces tend to go for the side swept look because this tackles both of these things in one! Centre parted styles also work well because they can make your face appear slimmer, its best to put some boho waves or curls through your style just to add movement and some body.
You don’t just have to opt for something longer, in fact the lob, one of the hottest celebrity hair trends this year, is an amazing style to wear if you have either a round or square head, just take a look at Chrissy Teigen’s recent chop!
Hairstyles for round faces and fine hair is a bit trickier, it’s usually better to try and get as much body and volume as you can, which is why wavy styles tend to work better. If you do have finer hair, try a half up half down do like Cameron Diaz’s loose plait. Or if you want to work an up do, make sure you leave some hair down at the sides and add some height at the top by bulking up your bun or creating a crown braid.
Whatever look you’re going for there’s something for everyone so experiment with some styles and find out what you like best, then go with it!
