This model has a slightly angular face with a broad forehead and width at the jawbone.  However, a medium messy bob haircut can be tailored to make the face-shape closer to the oval ideal.  A side-parting and diagonal sweep of fringe minimise forehead width. Showing a little forehead up to the hairline, adds length to balance facial width.  Fairly flat sides avoid adding ‘width’ and casual, shorter strands can be used to cover a strong jaw.  Slightly flicked-out hair around a narrow or pointed chin, also helps balance the overal shape of the face!
