Looking for a style to match your face shape? Get inspired by these hairstyles.
Before today you’ve probably wouldn’t have thought you were wearing a hairstyle that actually wasn’t a fit for you. What do we mean by that? Well, there are hairstyles that work better on particular face type: square, round, oval, heart-shaped and oblong that can accentuate your features and flatter your face. “But how do you determine what style goes with certain face shapes?” You ask. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Read on to discover some of our favorite inspirational hairstyles for any face type.
Best Hairstyles for Any Face Type
Square Face Shape
With this face shape your forehead is broad and your jawline is square. Hairstyles such as long waves, long curls, off-center partings and graduated cuts will do wonders.
1. Long Curls
We love how long curls or long waves plays well with a square jawline. This look is impeccable on your face shape and it’s totally up to you how loose or tight you want them to be.
2. Off -Center Part
When you play around with the positioning of your part it adds softness to your face frame and breaks up the symmetry. You can try this out even if you already have a fringe.
3. Graduated Cut
These layered cuts add volume and can be done on a bob or a lob. Adding a longer length towards the frame of your face accentuates and plays well with your frame.
Round Face Shape
Aren’t you all balanced out? Your rounded face is fuller, has an equal distance all around from forehead to chin, and equal distance around the cheeks. Feathered haircuts, short bangs (fringe) or a short cut will be amazing for you!
4. Feathered haircuts
These haircuts look super stylish on you, especially when the layers are cut towards your face which have a slimming effect.
5. Short Bangs
A short fringe helps frame your perfectly dome-shaped face whilst giving it some length, and this style is a classic.
6. Short Cut
Short haircuts are extremely flattering for your face shape. Go for it, try out a pixie or a page boy!
Oval Face Shape
We’ll be the first to admit: Some of us are jealous of those cheekbones of yours! Your face is structured wider around the cheekbone area with a pointed chin (in most cases) and a slightly narrow forehead. Another thing we’re envious of is your ability to rock any hairstyle since your face is like the perfect oval. Lucky you! You can downplay or highlight any feature you want with the hairstyle you choose.
7. Long Waves
Whether beach made or not, rock those cheekbones of yours with some stunning waves grazing along your face frame.
8. Sleek Pixie Cut
Guaranteed to be your new favorite cut, you’d be so glad you tried it. Give this low maintenance cut a go.
9. Slick straight center part
No wrong in sporting a neat and straight center part on bone straight hair. This style is timeless and sexy.
Isn’t your face shape so sweet? The eye area of your face is the widest then it narrows down towards the chin area. Bob’s or hairstyles that create volume work well on you.
10. Short Voluminous Curls
Opt for a curly hairstyle that is full of volume that hit you right at the chin or above the ears.
Bobs cut at the chin or just below the ears are loved by heart-shaped faces. They simultaneously create balance, volume and show off that incredible bone structure around your eyes.
12. Layered bobs
Worn wavy or straight is a great option for your face shape. The layered effect of the bob creates the perfect balance around the jawline.
Oblong or Long Face Shape
Your face shape includes a high forehead and long chin. Hairstyles like short layers, bobs with bangs and even curly bobs will help balance you all out.
13. Bob with fringe
Bobs with bangs give the illusion of width, which helps balance out those with a long and pronounced face.
14. Curly bob with fringe
Let those curls be loose and free in this cute above-the-shoulder look. This can also be a fun option for straight haired ladies who want to add some bounce to their look.
15. Shoulder length hair
We love how straight, wavy or curly hairstyles that fall to your shoulders help broaden the face.
