Have you ever had your hair cut and styled to a photo you saw in a magazine and days later you wondered why you did that? Simply put, it most likely was the wrong hairstyle for your face shape. Hairstyles are predominately about shape and geometry. It’s about framing your face shape for overall balance and perspective. A hairstyle should minimize non-pleasing attributes and compliment positive ones.

As a general hairstyling rule, try to achieve an oval shape. Why? Because it’s the most perfect and pleasing shape to the human eye. To accomplish this – wide faces need lengthening and long faces need shortening.

Learning How To Choose Your Face Shape

Grab a photo of yourself that has the hair styled away from your face. Then take a look at the photos and descriptions below and find the best match. It’s important to remember that even though your face may not be an exact match of any single shape, it will resemble one shape over all.
