There are roughly 6 kinds of face shapes according to some research data and they are: heart, long, oval, triangle, square and round. We can know our face shape referring to the picture below. And then we’ll talk about how to make a haircut that best flatting our face shape:

1) Heart shaped faces. One famous star with a heart shaped face is Paula Marshall. By wearing a proper side-swept bang/ a fringe on her brow with long layers on the top, she has brought all the attention to her bright eyes. You will be willing to learn from her and you can also use your creativity to let your hair grow and have it done in layers which will gently touch your cheekbones.

2) Long faces. A big point to avoid your face looking extra-long is to create the illusion of width to balance your face out when you have a long face or oblong face. Try to do your hair with long, side-swept bangs or chin-length bobs, which will add width to your face. If you would like to look mature, then curls or waves will also help to make it up to frame your face.

One thing you should keep in mind: never let your hair grow too long or have your hair cut too short because this will take away the width from your face and emphasize its length.

3) Oval faces. You are so lucky to have oval face because almost every hairstyle will work well with it. No matter how long or short, how straight or wavy, as long as you like, you can have your hair do any style as you like. Nevertheless, try not to get the hairstyles that add volume to the top of your head—this will make your face look longer.

4) Triangle faces. The triangle face shapes are usually narrow at the forehead, and widest at the jawline with a pointed chin. Ladies with this facial shape often look their best with short hair is fuller on the top and tapers down toward your chin, which shows off the foreheads and cheekbones, while detracting away from the chin.

5) Square faces. The best hairstyle to match a square face to draw attention away from the jawline and choose a style that adds texture. Short curls and waves as well as long layers that start just below the jawline can exactly make this. Meanwhile, bangs cut to the eyebrows and shaped longer at the sides are also good hair ideas to balance a square shaped face. One don’t: one-length bobs or bluntly cut bangs will only emphasize the squareness of your face.

6) Round faces. Round face shapes mainly feature soft full cheeks and rounded foreheads and chins. So the best hairstyle for round shaped faces should focus on slimming the face and n this way, you can have your hair cut just below your chin or in graduated layers with long hairstyles. Again, one-length bobs or bluntly cut bangs should be ticked out.
