How to find the right hairstyle

Long or short hair, oval or round face? It is not any hairstyle that suits your face shape. See which hairstyle suits you best:

Dreaming of a medium page, in a slightly messy look that's modern now? Or do you want most long fluffy Hollywood beckons a la Jennifer Lawrence? Unfortunately, it is not always that dream hairstyle suits the face shape you have.

The best you can do if you want a flattering hairstyle is like the first to find out what face shape you have. : It has a significant impact on whether you can successfully wear short hair or long locks.

- Get your hairdresser to help you're to identify the strengths of your face shape so that they can be highlighted, but do not let you limit. That's the good thing about the times we live in; everything is allowed, and we must stand out, says Lasse Pedersen, a hairstylist for TRESEMMÉ in Denmark and explains that you can use face shape as a guideline for what suits you best.

Find your face shape among these four main types, and get the hairdresser's guide to the hairstyle that suits you and what you should avoid.

Oval face

ovalA narrow forehead hairline characterizes the oval face shape with a rounded, slightly wider cheekbones and a slimmer and slightly rounded chin. Proposal for a hairstyle: Do you have an oval face, you can enjoy that it is well balanced and that almost all hairstyles will suit you. Both long, short, curly and straight hair. Go like for a hairstyle that highlights facial shape. A little more square and a sharp cut bob that ends at the shoulders, with a soft bang that flips outward, and a side or center parting.


Avoid: Hiding your beautiful face shape with very heavy, straight bangs or style your hair towards the face. Proposal for setup: Generally, you should avoid making too high settings so that the face does not get too far. Collect it in place in the neck, or optionally only the upper part of the hair, and leave the rest hanging loose in the neck to soften the edge of the lower face up.

Round face

roundA round face has full cheeks, a slightly narrower forehead, and a rounded chin. This means that it is almost as long as it is wide. Proposal for a hairstyle: Medium and long hair like the round shape and draw optical face a little longer. If you have bangs, then let it be a bit asymmetric, as it opens the face. If possible, get your hair cut in layers, as it gives a little more fullness on top and gets face to seem narrower. Avoid Hairstyles that make the look even rounder.

Avoid heavy bangs, which both make a face smaller and broader, lengths of hair that end at the cheekbone, and too round hairstyles. Proposal for setup: The oval face can wear high settings, for example. A bun on top of the head, as it makes a face anymore.

Rectangular face

rectangularAbout the same width elongates the face at the forehead, cheekbones and jaw and long, straight high lengths of the three parties. Proposal for a hairstyle: Here you have to face softened and choose a hair that does not make it seem longer than it is already. Get made fill with floors, possibly a 70s hairstyle and keep the hair short or medium to fill the page - like with curls or waves. A high side parting will also balance the length of your face, and a center parting can be soft corners up top. Bangs are also useful since the optical makes a face shorter.

Avoid Very long hair, because it only gets face to seem longer. Proposal to set up: You can put your hair up, just not too tight - think all the time: soft lines. Avoid high setups, and give instead fill the pages. Pull tufts free from structure, and let them go against the face.

Heart-shaped face

heartshapedThe heart-shaped face is quite rare and very lovely. The face is broad at the top, slightly narrower in the middle portion, and it has a very narrow jaw with an often small, pointed chin. Proposal for a hairstyle: Here we get hold of page hair, just without bangs, but perhaps with a few soft lures that can take some of the top corners of the face. The fullness is due to be at the chin and behind the ears to balance. The hair may well be relatively flat at the top.

Avoid Too much filling on top, and then there will be too much width. Avoid short hairstyles. Proposal for setup: The new wet-look where the hair is ironed flat back and down behind the ears when it gets to be wide at the bottom, will fit super useful for the heart-shaped face.
