Best Hairstyles for Your Face Shape: Female Haircut and Styling Recommendations

Altering your haircut can transform your entire appearance. There are a variety of creative and stylish hairstyles that you may try, whether you are transitioning from long waves to a blunt cut or just adding sassy pixies. However, the essential thing is determining whether a hairstyle will fit you or not! To find out, examine your facial shape or structure and then follow the advice provided below.

Let's look at the various facial types and hairstyles that complement them.

1. Haircut for square face: Add volume to soften

A prominent jaw and a relatively rectangular appearance distinguish the squared face. Opt for voluminous roots and asymmetrical and messy cuts for a dishevelled effect. You can also go for long wavy hair that creates movement to fill the upper part of the face or scaled and soft side tufts up to the height of the nose. Even a lengthy asymmetrical cut with a lateral line that tends to cover half of the face to break the rigidity of the jaw and create an I see/I cannot see effect can offer a squared face value.

YES: Haircuts that reach the shoulders or higher and haircuts that allow mobility.

NO: Geometric or short hairstyles that terminate on the jaw, as they will draw attention to it.

2. Haircut for round face: Hide the wide with layers

A rounded and broad face, also known as a full moon face, has a significant breadth that can be accentuated by a few additional pounds or puffiness, making a face look bigger and rounder. The best haircut for a round face would be the one that can make a face appear thinner and longer: scaled and wavy hairstyles with locks that cover the side of the face while revealing the middle area, creating the appearance of a less full face. Hairstyles with voluminous hair roots that stretch the top half of the face and enhance the proportion of the upper part of the face are excellent options. Asymmetrical and messy-looking hairstyles might also aid in this situation by diverting attention.

YES: long, scaled, wavy hairstyles that cover the lateral portions of the face, making it appear thinner by lowering its breadth.

NO: bob-haircuts to the chin, heavy bangs, geometric cuts with a centre line.

3. Haircut for triangular face: Provide volume where it is lacking

The triangle face, also known as the heart-shaped face, has a wide top section of the face that narrows as it reaches the chin, generally extended and a bit pointed. The best haircut, in this case, should balance the proportions by thinning the top half of the face and filling in the bottom area. The best options would be hairstyles that terminate at the chin for a filling effect where the face lacks volume and soft bangs on the upper section to frame and hide the forehead. As you reach the front of the face, go for medium-length cuts, bobs, or even an almost shaved nape with lengthier lengths, culminating with two long locks beneath the chin.

Alternatively, some mildly wavy hair roots with progressively voluminous curls down to the chin to add volume to the lower half of the face will make it less tapering.

YES: Medium-length haircuts, bobs, wavy cuts with fluffy curls around the chin's height, and bangs are all acceptable.

NO: Root volume, very long hairstyles, and flat haircuts.

4. Haircut for long face: Shorten the length with longer styles

Full bangs that reach the eyes can assist in balancing the proportions, emphasising the upper half of the face and giving a more harmonic and balanced overall appearance if your face is long and tapered. All long hairstyles, whether wavy, curly, or straight, are a go-go because when the length of the hair exceeds the length of the face, the face seems to be shorter. In this instance, a product capable of maintaining the bangs and hair roots (which are prone to becoming filthy) clean and voluminous becomes essential to avoid relying on constant cleaning.

YES: Long haircuts, waves and curls for lateral volume, and big bangs to minimise face length.

NO: Chin bobs, smooth and flat cuts that lengthen your face, scaled cuts.

5. Haircut for oval face: Find your flow

Because almost any haircut will look good on your oval face shape, it's more about finding the most fabulous hairstyle for your hair texture and the appearance that best reflects your unique style. If you're a bohemian at heart, part your hair down the middle and smooth it to a sleek, "Cher" perfection, or style it into ruffled beach waves or wild curls. Deep, gleaming waves with a low side part will complement your features brilliantly. If you enjoy short hair, any form of a cropped pixie cut, from a tidy little cap to a dishevelled, punky style, will look great on you. Try semi segments and sub or big, eye-shading curtain bangs if you're feeling daring. Trust your instincts!

There are plenty of options to pick from if you need a great haircut. Although choosing hairstyles keeping your face shape in mind would be the safest bet, the best haircut would be the one that makes you feel good about yourself. Always trust your instincts and go with the cut that makes you feel most comfortable, rather than pushing yourself into a cut you don't believe is yours. You'd constantly feel out of place if you didn't.
