HAIRSTYLES FOR YOUR FACE SHAPE
The right hairstyle for your face-shape can transform you completely, enhancing your best features and muting your least favourite! Below, we are going to take your through all of the different face-shapes and the styles that suit them for the Shape of You.
An oval face shape tapers towards the chin, with a wider forehead & prominent cheekbones. All hair lengths will suit this face shape, from short crops, centre partings and long lengths.
An angled face shape strongly tapers towards the chin; the forehead may be a prominent feature. Shoulder length and longer length hair suit this face shape. Adding layers and shape will add softness.
A curved face shape has a width and length that are almost the same; the face tends to be widest at the cheeks. Long lengths below the shoulder helps to elongate a curved face shape, adding soft layers sitting in line with cheekbones and an angled sweeping fringe will add dimension to the face. Heavy curved fringes are not recommended unless you feel like making a bold statement.
A diamond face shape is highly angular and widest at the temples. Short hairstyles work well on this face shape; long hair needs movement towards the mid-lengths and ends.
Split – a combination of curved and angled
Shoulder length and below shoulder length will compliment this face shape. Short crops with soft layers to encourage width will compliment this face shape, styles without too much height and more width such as soft waves and curls will work best. This face shape can carry both a sweeping fringe and a full curved fringe, which will encourage width. Avoid sleek, long length and height as this will elongate the face.
These tips are just a guide, if you feel like making a bold statement with your hair, go against what your face shape recommends and you could look epic, talk to your FG Stylist about what ideal styles you would like and they will find a way to adapt it to suit you perfectly.
