The Right Short Hair Style for your Face

Hair doesn’t make the person, the person makes the hair. As confusing as that may sound, what it means is that who you are and your personality are what make you special, and your hair is the icing on the cake. The amount of hair you have is also something that some may find limiting when it comes to hairstyles that can be achieved. It’s important to know that whether your hair is long or short, there are many style options available to you.

Here are some short hairstyles that are perfect for particular face types to create the ultimate style.

If you have a Heart-Shaped face

“The most flattering styles for this face shape will have some length around the face. Think Michelle Williams in the Louis Vuitton adverts. It’s a short cut, but there’s length to play so it becomes quite versatile and can be styled in a variety of different ways.”


If your face is round

“Katie Holmes is a great example of how to style short hair with a round face shape. Keep the length just below the jawline or below.”

For an oval face

“Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley are great examples of how to make short hair work on an oval face shape. The trick is to give it plenty of texture and to make sure there is some height at the roots.”


For those with a square face

“With a square face shape don’t style the hair onto or over the face because the most flattering style will show off your cheekbones and jawline. Think Cameron Diaz and Natalie Portman.”

Regardless of the shape of your face, your Ottawa hairstylist will be able to give you a look that is flattering and unique to your personal style.
