The Best Hair Cut For Your Face Shape

If you have a ROUND face…

Celebrities with a round face are… Fergie, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kate Bosworth, Oprah Winfrey, Cameron Diaz, Kirsten Dunst, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone

The most flattering hairstyles for round faces are… cuts that fall below the chin, which will help elongate a full face, making it appear more oval. Add choppy cheek-grazing pieces to give the illusion of angles where they don’t naturally exist or wispy, tapered ends to de-emphasize the roundness of your face. Simlarly, soft, graduated layers can elongate your face, making it appear narrower. Love bangs? Just be sure to keep them long or side-swept for the most-flattering look. Although, we have to say, Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Williams have made embracing the round face and enhancing it with a pixie cut ever stylish in our books!

Avoid… one-length, blunt cuts (like the classic bob) and, if you have curly hair, avoid any short style unless you go for a pixie cut.

Easy frizz-fighting solutions!

If you have a SQUARE face…

Celebrities with a square face are… Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie, Isabella Rosellini, Rosario Dawson

The most flattering hairstyles for square faces are… ones that play down the strong, angular jaw line. Add texture with curls, layers that start at the jaw line or choppy bangs to soften the strong lines of your jaw. Anything long and sleek will also flatter. And, if your hair is curly, play up your waves like Salma Hayek to balance out the boxiness.

Avoid…One-length bob hairstyles (especially chin-length) and blunt bangs both of which will only draw attention to an already-broad forehead and chin.

If you have a HEART shaped face…

Celebrities with a heart shaped face are… Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Rachel Bilson, Reese Witherspoon

The most flattering hairstyles for heart shaped faces are… hairstyles that draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones. Try side-swept bangs that hit at the arch of your brow, a strong part or hair that falls below your jaw line with soft, long layers. Feeling bold? A pixie is sure to look great!

Avoid… Short, blunt bangs and choppy layers.

If you have an OVAL face…

Celebrities with an oval face are… Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Taylor Swift, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashlee Simpson, Liv Tyler, Giselle Bundchen

The most flattering hairstyles for oval faces are… well, pretty much anything! From sophisticated bobs with bangs to long, beachy waves parted down the middle, practically any style will work unless your face is particularly long. If you do have a very long, oval face, add brow-skimming bangs, cheek-grazing layers or curls to help balance a longer oval shape. Chin-length bobs, like Gwyneth Paltrow‘s, are also great because they create the illusion of width.

Avoid… Short layers that add height on top of your head and can make your face appear longer as well as hair that is too long (like Megan Fox‘s), which can drag down the face.
