Face Shapes & Hair Style
In this well-proportioned face, the length is about one and one-half times the width. What a treat to have this face shape because you can wear almost any style.
This face is defined by wide cheekbones, a broad forehead and a wide jaw line. Off-center parts and face-framing layers work wonders with this facial shape. Rounder bangs help to soften the edges.
This face is wider at the chin and jaw and narrower at the forehead. Width and height balance this out. Bring attentions to the eyes by adding volume at the crown.
This face has a length that is longer than width is wide. Shorter, chin-length layered styles with a wide bang help to add necessary width to a very elongated face.
Keep hair longer and add soft layers around the sides and the top of the head. Pair with soft bangs.
VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL
Quickly access your face by viewing it vertically and horizontally. If it moves to much either direction, you should compensate with a cut that leads your eye the opposite way. For example, if yours is too narrow, ask your stylist to build width into the hair style. If your facial shape is too wide, you want to add more height.
To Balance the dominant width, consider bangs that are cut just long enough to balance the width of the face.
Extend the width of the forehead with bangs that are cut back somewhat.
Soften a less than swan-like neck with long layers and soft movement in and around the neck area.
If you think this is an unattractive feature, try cutting your hair to just above the shoulders, layering or bobbing it.
