Finding the Perfect Haircut for Your Face Shape

Finding the Perfect Haircut for Your Face Shape

Your hair does more than just turn heads all around you; it can also highlight your face. Depending on if your cut is a good one or a bad one, this can be positive or negative. Here at Red Stella Salon, we believe that finding the perfect cut makes your entire body look great. We have some tips for choosing a haircut that will draw attention to your best features.

Round Face

If your face is rounder, you can go any length if you have the right haircut.

• Short – Go all the way short with spiky layers all around the crown of the head. • Medium – Long bob with wisps around the neck in order to slim the face. • Long – Layer at the jawline with barely there pieces to make the hair seem fuller rather than the face.

Heart Shaped Face

If your face is wider at the top and tends to come to a point at your chin, then try one of these looks on for size.

• Short – Pixie cut with short top layers, clipped evenly on nape and sides. • Medium – Collarbone length hair with uniform layers and sweeping bangs. • Long – Full bangs and curly sections of long hair.

Oval/Long Face

If your face is longer and more of an oval shape, try one of these jaw-dropping styles.

• Short – Angle a bob with chin-hugging, short layers. • Medium – Shoulder length sleek blowout. • Long – Sweeping fringe and a retro texture paired with long strands.

Square Face

If your face has a tendency to look squarer, try one of these cuts that will highlight your best features.

• Short – Subtle bangs over a short layered bob. • Medium – Sweeping bangs with shoulder-length layers. • Long – Slight bangs at the cheekbone with collarbone-skimming length.
