Oval Shaped Face
An oval face shape features a length that is longer than the width and a jawline that is only slightly narrower than the hairline. An oval face has no prominent points or angels. This face shape works with a variety of different haircuts and styles since it is well-balanced and proportionate. While most hairstyles work for this face shape, some of the best looks for this shape include a blunt bob with face-framing pieces or a shoulder-length cut with some layers to add volume.
Heart-shaped faces are ones that are wider at the hairline and temples and slowly taper to a narrow chin. If you have a heart-shaped face, your forehead may be a prominent feature and you likely have great cheekbones as well! For this face shape, it is best to choose a haircut that either accentuates your tapered face or that balances it out. A lob, or long bob, that goes past your shoulders, a side-parted pixie cut, or a long cut with a deep side part can help to show off your best features.
Square Shaped Face
Square faces are wide and the forehead, cheekbones, and jawlines are almost the same width. A strong jawline is generally the prominent feature of this face shape. For this face shape, blunt bangs or a short bob can accentuate your jawline. You can also go for some soft and wispy bangs that fall to the side, which can soften the look of your face shape.
Round faces are characterized by being the same in width and length, and not having any prominent angles. Round faces often make the person look younger, which means that you can have fun with more youthful hairstyles. The best haircuts for round faces include a long layered cut, a choppy pixie cut, a lob, or short side bangs. These cuts can help add angles to your appearance and elongate your face.
Long faces are basically oval faces, just longer. The length of the face is noticeably longer than the width. The best hairstyles for this face shape include long cuts with layers to add volume, blunt bangs, chin-length bobs, and side-swept bangs.
While there are other face shapes, these are some of the most common. Figuring out what haircut works well with your face shape can help you find your perfect look! Our hairstylists can help! Schedule an appointment at The Hair Company in Nashua today.
