For Oval Face Shapes

Flattering: Anything! Lucky you!! You can try any hairstyles as you like!

Avoid: Nothing!

For Round Face Shapes

Flattering: A hairstyle that adds more length to the face and is face framing. Bangs and layers will slim the face. Make sure the it is longer than chin length. Wispy edges or tapered ends, but avoid feathering around cheek level. Hairstyles that add height to the crown area.

Avoid: Short bobs, blunt cuts and a straight fringe. Avoid a tight ponytail with your hair slicked back.

For Square Face Shapes

Flattering: Long hairstyles that soften and frame the edges of the face. Blunt cuts that are just below shoulder length. Feathery bangs or a side parting. You can also look for a hairstyle that adds height to the crown. Soften your jawline with long bangs or layers that start at the jawline.

Avoid: Avoid short hairstyles – it makes the face look squarer in shape.

for Heart Face Shapes

Flattering: A heart-shaped face looks good with a soft, curly or wavy style that frames the face. Also pixie cuts and shoulder length hair with layers. Choppy layers to add more dimension to the hairstyle. Long bangs will also look great.

Avoid: Long hairstyles that do not frame the face and styles that widen the top of the head and accentuate the thinner chin too much.

For Diamond Face Shapes

Flattering: Many different styles look good on a diamond. A blunt, shoulder length cut or wispy bangs for long hair. Wavy medium to chin length hair. With shoulder length hair you can try subtle face framing layers. Also, bangs are great to soften the diamond.

Avoid: Avoid excessive layers and too much volume. Short haircuts generally do not suit diamond-shaped face, as it adds to the fullness of the upper part of the face.
