What are the best hairstyles for the shape of your face?

With the winter season coming up, it might just be time to get a new hairstyle. Certain looks seem to never go out of style, so if you have an idea of what you want, you should let your stylist know about it when you make a trip to your salon. Of course, the best way to get great cute hairstyles are to have your stylist give you a cut that is appropriate for your face shape. Certain styles work well on people with certain face shapes but might not necessarily look right on those with other facial shapes. Here are a few ideas of cute haircuts for any given face shape.

Hairstyles for Oval Shaped Faces 

If you have an oval shaped face, you should consider yourself lucky. This is because with an oval shaped face, the sky's the limit when it comes to cute hairstyles you can don that flatter you. Long, medium length or short, straight, curly, bobbed, layered or single length, just about any style will look great on you. Generally speaking, the only thing you might want to do when selecting a new haircut is to choose what part of your face you want to accentuate. You might also want to avoid having strands hanging in your eyes.

Hairstyles for Round Faces 

With a round face, you want to give the illusion that your face is actually longer than it is. This means that whatever hairstyle you choose, you should avoid bangs as they can deliver the exact opposite effect. The only exception is bangs that go sweeping across your face to one side or the other. Short hairstyles like the pixie cut tend to be cute hairstyles on individuals with round faces as they can better accentuate the beauty of your face shape and make your features pop.

Hairstyles for Square Faces 

If you have a squarish face, you can soften the often harsh lines of your cheekbones and jaw with a wispy hairdo. Most often, styles that have the majority of your hair at the crown of your head will flatter your face. Short, medium and long lengths are all appropriate, but you should do everything you can to avoid bob style cuts.

Hairstyles for Heart Shaped Faces 

Heart shaped faces tend to look the best when they are accompanied by a bob type of hairstyle that sits around shoulder length. This gives the jaw more of a fuller appearance, with the pointedness of it appearing softer. Other cute hairstyles that work with a heart shaped face are longer lengths that include a side part.

Hairstyles for Oblong Faces 

If you have an oblong face, your face tends to be on the long side, which means you should go out of your way to get a hairstyle that will take attention away from that fact. You should opt for cuts that make your face appear shorter, such as those with layers that are higher up rather than lower down. One of the best styles is a short or medium length with wispy ends and bangs. These styles often frame your face and therefore take attention away from your jaw line.
