The Best Hair Styles For Your Face Shape

Have you ever wanted to change your hairstyle but struggle to find something that looks good? Choosing a new cut or style can be frustrating, when it should just be fun!

To take the stress out of your style, we’ve narrowed down the best styles for your face shape.

But First

Before you start, you need to know what kind of face shape you have. After all, some styles don’t suit everyone, so it’s important to recognize which looks fit your individual features. The most common face shapes include oval, round, square, and heart-shape.

Don’t limit yourself though; try out as many hairstyles as you can until you find one that’s perfect. And that doesn’t mean committing to a cut. With the help of an AI haircut simulator, you can try on any style before you go to a salon.

With that being said, here are the best styles for your face shape.

If You Have An Oval Face

If you have an oval face and long hair, lucky you! You can pull off any style. That includes layers or a side braid, a half-up, half-down look with loose waves, or bangs. Opt for cuts that are slightly asymmetrical to emphasize the oval shape.

For medium-length hair on an oval face, consider choppy layers or a shaggy bob. This will add texture and keep your hair looking stylish and modern! Bangs can also be flattering on this type of face. To show off your bone structure, try long layers around the face with shorter pieces in the back that add volume.

If you have short hair and an oval face, try a pixie cut, or a slightly longer bob with soft waves. This will bring out your features and make your face appear more oval. You can even try an asymmetrical undercut!

If Your Face Shape Is Round

If you have a round face and long hair, consider adding layers. Long side bangs that skim the cheekbones but don’t cover them up completely can add a flattering asymmetrical look. Adding layers around your jawline will also create more dimension.

Medium-length hair on a round face looks best with lots of volume at the top, like an A-line bob or shoulder-length layers. This helps to bring out your cheekbones and creates the illusion of a longer face.

However, avoid styles that are too blunt or straight, as this will make your face appear even rounder.

If you have a round face and short hair, consider a pixie cut with long side bangs to draw attention away from the cheeks and lengthen the face. You can also try shorter layers around the sides of your head that bring volume up top, or add curls or waves to create more shape.

For The Square Face

To soften strong jawlines on a square-shaped face, aim for styles that are either wavy or full of volume. Buns, top knots, and long curls are all great choices. A center part with longer layers that hit just below the jawline will help soften strong facial features.

For medium-length hair on a square face, add waves or texture to your style. Choppy layers are flattering on a square face shape and help draw attention away from sharp angles. Soft bangs that frame the eyes (but don’t cover them) also add a nice finishing touch!

If you have a square face and short hair, try an asymmetrical bob that hits just above the chin. This will elongate your face and bring attention to the eyes, rather than the jawline. Adding volume at the crown or a few choppy layers can also make it pop.

And The Heart-Shaped Face

Long hair on a heart-shaped face looks best when it has softness and movement. Adding long layers around your face that hit just below your chin will soften strong features. A center part with loose waves or curls is also a great idea!

For medium-length hair on a heart-shaped face, choose styles that create an illusion of width around the jawline. Soft layers with side-swept bangs will also look amazing.

If you have a heart-shaped face and short hair, an angular bob that hits just below the chin will look great, especially if you add texture or waves around the sides of your head.

Last Thoughts

It’s important to remember that finding the right hairstyle for any face shape comes down to personal preference. Experiment with different styles until you find one that complements your bone structure and makes you feel confident!
