The best hairstyles for your face shape, according to a hairdresser

Share

IF YOU FACE SHAPE IS… A DIAMOND

Adam explains that a diamond face shape is ‘an oval with angles’.

He adds that your ‘forehead and jawline are narrow and cheekbones are wide and high.’

To accentuate your features, Adam says…

Almost any style will work but softer, draping fringes and gentle sweeping locks work best for this shape

Add fullness and texture at the forehead and jawline areas to flatter the face shape

Avoid fullness only at cheekbone area but create texture

 

 

IF YOU FACE SHAPE IS… ROUND

‘The key is to make your face shape look oval,’ explains Adam.

To achieve this, Adam says…

Add height on the top of the head (at crown) to create an illusion of length

Avoid centre partings

Add texture at the sides and running through the front of the hair.

Tuck your hair behind your ears to create a different type of silhouette and elongate the face

Shorter, slightly wider styles makes a round look more youthful than any other face shape

 

IF YOUR FACE SHAPE IS… A HEART

For heart-shaped faces, Adam reveals that it’s important to ‘add shape around the face to even the sides’.

To complement your face shape, he says…

Play around with different fringes

Chin length hair works well

Avoid severe slicked back looks

Never do up do’s

 

 

IF YOUR FACE SHAPE IS… OBLONG

Adam says that oblong face shapes are ‘often confused with oval, however an oblong face is slightly longer and not so wide’.

To make the most out of your features, he says…

Try to widen the hair to make it appear less long

It’s essential to keep the cheekbones clear and visible

Styles with width are best suited 

 

IF YOUR FACE SHAPE IS… OVAL

Do you have an oval-shaped face? Well, consider yourself lucky because Adam claims that oval faces will suit all short hair styles.

However, his most important piece of advice is…

Avoid heavy straight fringes and centre partings that make the forehead seem wider

 

IF YOUR FACE SHAPE IS… SQUARE

Those with square faces will notice that their face is equal. Additionally, you'll likely have a strong jawline.

To avoid making the face look harsh, Adam says...

This face shape suits softness and added texture

Opt for symmetrical shapes

A side parting is ideal
