The Best Haircuts for Your Face Shape

By michellehorton |

Have you ever wondered why a chic pixie can look one way on one face, and then totally different on another? Or why some people can pull off blunt bangs while others are better suited to wispy fringe, or none at all? It could have to do with their face shape. Certain haircuts and styles can accentuate or downplay strong facial features.

Find out which cuts are recommended (and which aren’t) for oval, round, heart and square faces:

Haircut Ideas for Your Face Shape

ROUND: Asymmetrical Cuts

If you have wide cheeks without any sharp-angled features, an asymmetrical cut (a piecey cut with a mix of lengths) will add some angles and shape. A side-swept bang is especially flattering, adding definition to your face.

Avoid: Blunt bangs, one-length hair, chin-length bobs (one length), and any hairstyle that adds width to the side of your face.
