Everyone has a unique face shape and each one is beautiful. Carrying it with the right haircut, however, can be a challenge.
Not all haircuts complement a round face shape just like not all cuts suit a diamond shape. Acknowledging your face shape is the first step to getting the right haircut. Once you have that determined, you can confidently book an appointment to the salon and try on your new look. And, if you are looking for a great hair salon in Albany, give Purity Hair Design a look!
Haircuts for ROUND face shapes
The aim here is to accentuate your hair and show less of the skin of your face. While round faces are beautiful, showing too much of the face can give you an almost fat look you want to avoid. Long layers that show off the beauty bone and bracket the sides of your cheeks are ideal for round face types.
Haircuts for OVAL face shapes
Oval or long face types are pretty flexible for haircuts. Anything that brings out the slimness of your face (choppy layers) and reduces the actual length of it (side bangs) are great options to consider for the oval-faced.
Haircuts for SQUARE face shapes
Square face shapes usually have well-defined cheekbones and a strong chin. Go with a softer airy look that diverts the attention away from your chin and more towards your cheekbones. For square face shapes, getting feathery bangs and soft layers is the way to go.
Haircuts for HEART face shapes
Heart face shapes usually have a broad forehead and a strong jawline. The trick to the perfect heart shaped face haircut is to hide the wide forehead and rock that naturally sharp as a diamond jawline. Front bangs or a fringe can help you achieve a stunning look. To get the most out of your face shape, go for a layered haircut that will give a definition to your prominent jawline.
Haircuts for DIAMOND face shapes
The diamond face shape is sometimes hard to differentiate from the heart face with the same wide forehead. But this face shape has more of asymmetry and a less prominent jawline. The trick here is to not hide too much of the face and show as much skin as you can. Side swept bangs or a short lob look stunning on the diamond face type.
Whether it’s round, oval, square or anything else – your face shape is unique and beautiful. Even if you can’t always rock the hairstyle your best friend carries around flawlessly, there are still plenty of other options open for your face shape that can make heads turn all around Albany!
