The Right Style for Your Face Shape


Having the perfect hair goes beyond just how clean and well styled it happens to be. Being unique and having a style that exudes elements of your personality is important, but seeing as how everyone is different you’ll also want to to ensure that your hair compliments the particular size and shape of your face.

Here are some of the best ways to flatter varying face shapes and sizes:

Bangs to help sculpt face
If you were not born with a sculpted face and the perfect cheekbones, don’t fret! Just give your hair a little change to see an instant effect on your face. Hairstylist Aakriti Kochar suggests opting for side swept bangs instead of going for heavy bangs as they make your face look rounder. You can style your bangs to perfection by curling your hair and leaving the bangs loose on the forehead. Bangs give the face an elongated look and draw attention to the eyes.

Curls for rounder faces

They are perfect for downplaying the roundness of your face as they add volume and texture to your hair. Curls instantly draw attention away from your face and hide those little flaws. Not all of us have a delicate face and cheekbones that stand out, so for those of us straight hair is a complete no no.

Layers to create a slimmer look

Just like wearing black or pinstripes makes you look slimmer; the right hairstyle can make your face look slimmer. “Layers help create a soft shape and will make the face look slimmer. They create volume towards the ends of your hair,” explains hair expert Naina Arora.’
