Hairstyle: How to choose a right hairstyle

Need a new hair cut and just afraid that the hair cut doesn’t suit our face. Fear no more now…let’s see the tips to choose the right hairstyle for us:)

First we need to determine our type of face, and this technique is used by stylists  to create an illusion of a balanced face (this technique can be applied in choosing the right eyes frame as well :)

To guide you in determining your face shape and find the right style use one of the following methods:

The mirror trick

- First stand in front of a mirror and look straight ahead.

- Pull your hair completely back and secure with a clip.

- Take a lipstick and draw around the outline of your face on the mirror.

- Compare the result with one of the following shapes and find the face shape that is closest to yours. (There are seven different face shapes in this hair cut guide)


Diamond Face: Narrow forehead, small pointy chin, and wide cheeks.
Haircut & Style: To create a balance shape look for styles that are narrow at the cheekbones and wider at the forehead. Add a little more fullness at the crown if required.


Heart face: Wide, short forehead, and small pointy chin.
Haircut & Style: Suited styles are like layered bob with extra volume and outward flicks at chin level. Asymmetric cuts are also flattering heart-shaped faces.


Oval face: High forehead and narrow, slightly rounded chin.
Haircut & Style: This is the most balanced face shape and almost perfect for any type of hair style.



Rectangle face: Long face with high forehead and long jaw and chin. Also known as long face shape.
Haircut & Style:Suited styles are like chin or shoulder-length cuts with a fringe that can disguises the long forehead.


Round face:Wide, short forehead, full jaw and chin.
Haircut & Style:The round shape normally makes the cheeks appear wider. Most short hair cuts works well for round face as long as there is some height at the crown area and little fullness above the ears to slim down the round face. Soft cuts with sophisticated layers coming forward onto the face look stylish and is an ideal hair style for round face shape. Soft curls will also flatter the frame of a round face. For straight hair asymmetric cuts can also be an option.

Square face: A wide, short forehead and square jaw.
Haircut & Style: Square edges should be soften by breaking the symmetry. Graduated layers with some volume at crown and soft curls looks stylish on this type of face shape.

Triangular face: Narrow at the temples, slightly wider at the cheeks and widest at the jaw line.
Haircut & Style: Most short hair cuts works for this type of face. Avoid styles with volume at the top.


fyen[8]The real trick is to pick hairstyles that enhance your best features while camouflaging any flaws. Please take note that this technique and face shape concept is a very simple hair cut guide and sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish two face shapes from each other. But I am sure that this can help us select a better style and give us a general knowledge. Still choose and communicate with our hair stylist is a key to a successful outcome at a saloon.
