However, there are lots of hairstyles that can perfectly flatter your face shape, whether it’s heart-shaped, long, square or round. To pick the hair trend that’s right for you, here are four hairstyles for all face types to try.

1. Long Bob

The long bob has proved to be one the most popular hair trends as of late, is it is a universally flattering cut that suits all face shapes easily. Now the trick to pulling off the lob is to make sure it sits at the right length, so you’ll want to ask your stylist to make sure your long bob sits at the collarbone in order for it to perfectly flatter your face. Styling your lob isn’t too difficult, as it’s one style that looks amazing sleek and straight, or textured and wavy. To get that come-hither wave, use the Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray on clean, damp hair in order to get that undone wave.

2. Chic Bobs

But if you wanted a style that’s slightly shorter than a lob, a good bob can look good on all hair types if you select the right cut and length for your face. Be sure to talk to your stylist first before selecting the right cut, as he or she can help you select the perfect look that flatters your face shape. When you actually style your bob, know that styling opportunities are endless. But, if you want a look that is truly chic and sophisticated, it never hurts to wear your style straight. To get that sleek and straight finish, use the Bed Head by TIGI Straighten Out Straightening Cream before you heat style in order to get the perfect look.

Pixies may seem intimidating, but they can be pulled off by almost face shape, if the length and layers are flattering of course. Again, it’s wise to talk to your stylist before may the big chop, as you’ll want to talk about upkeep for sure. However, if you really want to take your cut to the next level, try adding in some blunt or side sweeping bangs to help pump up your pixie.

4. Layered Styles

But no matter your length, know that layered styles flatter all hair types, as they can help your hair look fuller and more voluminous. Long layers in particular, look flattering on the all hair lengths, as they can help frame the face, enhancing (and slimming) your facial structure altogether. Styling your layers isn’t too difficult either, as you can wear them wavy, curly or straight. However, if you constantly heat style, it’s important to acknowledge that your ends can become a little frayed. To keep them in good shape, be sure to use a good heat protectant, like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Promend Heat Protecting Mist, to shield your tresses as you style.
