Is There a Hairstyle Which Suits Every Face?

If there is one hair style that will fit all face shapes, it hasn't been invented yet! However, our expert hair stylists in Kidlington can adapt any hair style to fit your face shape. Book a consultation with us and bring your inspiration pictures into the salon.

Hairstyles For Round Faces

Round face shapes tend to have similar width and length with rounded cheeks. Add definition and shape to a round face with long layered hairstyle or edgy pixie cuts. Avoid full curls which add width to your face, long cuts with no layers and chin length hairstyles.

Hairstyles For Square Faces

As square-shaped face shapes usually feature a broad forehead, a strong jawline and wide cheekbones, a hair cut which softens your features is essential to compliment your bone structure. Opt for longer layered hairstyles and side swept fringes to draw away from your jawline and towards your cheekbones. 

Haircuts For Heart Shaped Faces

A heart shaped face tends to have a wide brow and narrower chin. A side-parted pixie cut with textured ends can look fantastic on a heart shaped face, as can a longer bob haircut or medium length wavy styles which will balance out the lower portion of your face.

Hairstyles For Rectangular Faces

If you have a rectangular face we would recommend layered hairstyles with face framing layers cut to your cheekbones. Soft fringes and trendy curtain bangs will draw the eye away from the lower portion of the face.  

Hairstyles For Triangle Shaped Faces

As a triangle shaped face is traditionally wider at the jawline than at the brow, we would recommend choppy pixie cuts and side swept fringes, whilst chin length haircuts should be avoided as they can make your jawline look wider. 

Hairstyles For Oval Shaped Faces

Oval faces are well balanced and can suit a wide range of hairstyles, particularly short cropped hairstyles. Long hairstyles with minimal layers or soft waves can highlight your features and accentuate your cheekbones. A central parting will help to maintain the balance of an oval shaped face.

Hairstyles For Diamond Shaped Faces

Those with diamond shaped faces could opt for face softening layered, wavy hairstyles with a side parting. Balance the lower portion of your face with a chin length bob or, if you often wear your hair up, a simple pulled back ponytail will flatter your face shape and enhance your cheekbones.
