Hair Styles for your Face Shape – from Siltana
What’s your Perfect Haircut? – By Siltana, our hair-dresser at Alexander House
Since lockdown at the end of March when all hair salons closed people have been forced into creating their own style at home. I know that a few have found it rather tricky and it’s definitely not as easy as it looks even with the help of a few YouTube tutorials! As many have found, there is lots of training and experience behind a professional haircut. A good haircut properly tailored for you can really make a difference and should still look stylish in a couple of month’s time.
So do you know which is the perfect haircut for you?
Trends come and go, but the perfect haircut is the one personalized to you and is a form of artwork. The first rule is to take a careful look at your face shape and key features including eyes, eyebrows, forehead, jawline and cheek bones to ensure that your chosen style enhances your face and draws attention to your best features.
Different face shapes require different haircuts and blowdries.
Here we have the most common types of face shapes
An oval face is the perfect shape and allows you to experiment with all hairstyles. I recommend a cut that enhances your face shape a short glamorous cut or a long voluminous curly style; waves and beach waves never go out of style.
A round face shape with round cheekbones looks great with an irregular side parting shaped fringe, which lengthens the face and frames the face. Voluminous hairstyles are best avoided and the fringe should be straightened.
A long face suits a long bob and airy layers that soften the features. A long fringe that sits on the eyebrows will enhance your eyes.
A square shape suits a ‘messy’ style with mid or long shags that harmonize the squareness. You can also opt for a short layered bob. Flat hairstyles parted in the middle and geometric haircuts are best avoided.
A heart shaped face suits a mid length haircut, a side-parting or a pixie cut or bob and a natural curl will balance your face shape.
Which face shape do you have? Do you prefer to choose a style tailored to your face shape or are you running with the latest trend?
