Welcome to So Sensational TV. Are you unhappy with your hairstyle? Maybe because it doesn’t work with your face shape. In our hair makeover videos, we saw how great Rayna and Ruth looked with their new hairstyles.
So, how do you make sure that you get a great style that suits you? We can’t clone Stan, the senior stylist at HOB Salons, but we can help offer you some help on finding the right style for your face shape and your figure.
With an an oval face, you can wear any haircut you like.
If your face is oblong, and to visually shorten and broaden it, do this by creating some width at the sides, level with the cheekbones or jawline. Styles with some softness and a little height work well and a low side parting will broaden the overall facial appearance. Avoid straight hair which will make the face look longer.
If your face is round, create the illusion of length as a way to slim the face. A center or diagonal side parting will work well, keeping width to a minimum and adding a little height to the top of the head to create a more oval look. Avoid a heavy straight fringe. Instead, have a side fringe or a parted fringe swept to the sides. You may want to emphasize your round face. In which case you can choose a bob. But make it an uneven one the falls below your jaw. But don’t pull your hair back from your face.
Aim to soften the square look of the face. Do this by adding volume level with the eyes or wear styles that curve and angle hair across the forehead. Broken or asymmetrical lines work well. Hair should be longer than the chin as this will add softness to the jawline. Avoid very angular styles and avoid showing too much or too little forehead.
A triangle face shape is where the jawline is the widest part of the face. Create height and width at the temples with all of most of the ears covered. Styles that have volume at the sides of the head, around the eye line are good, as are ones that finish below the jawline. A soft, full fringe cut wide will add width to the forehead and create balance to the jawline. Avoid center partings, very short hair, or hair pulled back from the face which will emphasize your wider jawline.
If you have a heart shaped face, the aim will be to narrow the forehead and create balance at the chin line. Create volume and width along the chin line, keeping hair close to the face or slept back with soft curls. A style that partially covers the ears will work well. It’s best to avoid hair pulled back from the face and also avoid a straight fringe or low side parting.
It’s also important to match your haircut with your figure. If you are very petite, it’s best to keep your hairstyle small. Not too much volume and not too much length. If you have a bigger frame, if you’re a plus size lady, then do add volume and length as a very short, small cut, can make your head look small and may make you look bigger.
