You may aspire to have your hair styled like your favorite celebrity, or have it cut like your best friends. However, your stylish hair cut turns out not the way you had imagined. Instead of looking great, you end up with an old, ugly, fat, or downright nasty look. How can a hairstyle that has managed to look great on your friend, or in a photograph, turn out so wrong for you?
The answer lies in the shape of your face. Granted, some of us have been blessed with features that would literally fit any stylish haircut. The rest of us though, need to be aware about the types of haircuts that would accentuate our features, and other styles we need to avoid.
Typically, face shapes fall in the following categories – oval shape, long, round, diamond and square. If you have an oval shape or a diamond shape, pretty much any hairstyle would suit you. So, how can you tell if you have a face like that?
Well, it’s pretty simple. An oval shape would have a length that is 1.5 times the width of the face. You would have a diamond shape face if your chin and forehead are narrow, with cheeks that are almost of equal length. With a diamond shape face, you need stylish haircuts that would show off your cheekbones. Wisps close to the side of your face would be great for you.
