Ever wonder if the way you wear your hair is flattering to your face? Wonder no more -- get the right hair style that will accent your best features while visually minimizing attributes that can be unappealing.
- TIP: Comb the top and sides of your hair forward for a shaggy, wispy look that complements narrow foreheads.
- Step 1: Grow a beard to fill out the area around a narrow chin if you have a heart-shaped face. A beard can also disguise a prominent or pointed chin.
- Step 2: Consider the other factors that affect your hairstyle before you settle on a look, such as your facial features, hair quality, time you can spend on maintenance, and the image you're trying to project. Enjoy making the best of your attributes.
- FACT: Celebrity David Beckham, who is known for his fashion-forward hairdos and beards, has a square-shaped face.
- Step 3: Experiment with fuller hair styles that end at the nape if you have a diamond- or pear-shaped face. Prominent bangs will also help balance your overall shape.
- TIP: Lightening your hair color or wearing glasses draws attention to your eyes, which divides the length of your face into smaller sections.
- TIP: Ask a good hair stylist for a tapered cut with more length up top. Add hair product and style into a tousled flattop or faux hawk.
- Step 4: Make round or wide faces appear more slender by getting rid of bangs. Comb your hair with a part, buzz everything with clippers, or spike hair at the top to add height.
- TIP: Add a neatly-trimmed goatee or mustache to add definition to a round face and make your look more masculine.
- Step 5: Make a long face look shorter with a layered cut that gently blends the hairline into the face. Avoid sharp outlines, which draw unwanted attention to your face length.
- Step 6: Give the top of your head a noticeable shape to match a square jaw line, because a round head with a square face can be unappealing. Keep the sides trimmed neatly over the ears.
