Have you ever gone into a hair salon with a photo of your favorite celebrity and asked for their exact haircut, and you got a haircut and only to leave the salon wondering why those bangs that looked so beautiful on Gigi Hadid or that long bob Kendall rocks don’t give your own face that supermodel vibe?
It is not just because Gigi and Kendall have the world’s best glam squads available at their beck and call, it’s likely also because the hairstyle you chose just doesn’t suit your face shape.
Although confidence is all you need to wear a new cut proudly, there is nothing wrong with consulting your face shape and angles to ensure that you choose the best hairstyle suited for your unique facial features and make you look more beautiful.
We are here to convinced that there is nothing better than emerging from a salon and feeling like a million dollars. So here’s a guide to help you achieve it.
A face shape is considered oval if the length is longer than the width, and the jawline is only slightly narrower than the hairline, which is gently rounded. An oval face shape has no prominent points or angles
You likely have a diamond face shape if your forehead and jawline are the same widths and the widest part of your face is at your cheekbones with a narrow chin.
Square-shaped faces are wide, and the forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are almost the same width. The strong jawline is a prominent feature of square-shaped faces.
Just like a heart that you would draw out, a heart-shaped face is wider at the hairline and temples and tapers to a small, narrow chin, that is slightly pointed.
Round shaped faces are the same in width and length, with no prominent angles or corners. Round faces are usually baby-faces.
