The Most Flattering Haircuts for Every Face Shape
Whether your face is a rectangle, oval, square, circle, triangle, heart or diamond, the right cut will expertly frame and balance it while showcasing your best features for a flattering and complementary appearance. Keep scrolling for our face shape guide to finding which haircuts look best for which face shape.
Haircuts for Oval Faces
Oval face shapes are often seen as the most balanced face shape with the most symmetry and can suit a wide variety of hairstyles. For short hair, a blunt bob or lob with subtle layers will look particularly chic. If you prefer long hair, you will want to opt for minimal layers or style your hair with waves or curls to keep it from dragging down your face.
Round Face Shapes
Like oval, round face shapes typically feature a similar length as well as prominent, rounded cheeks and
have a lot more versatility haircut-wise than one might think. The most flattering hairstyles for ladies with round faces are those that add definition and shape like textured pixie cuts, layered bobs, and side-swept
bangs tend to look best.
Haircuts for Rectangle Faces
The rectangular face shape is a combo of the oval/long and square shaped face likely with a high forehead. It's essentially the long face with angular edges and features a square jaw and a face that's longer than it is wide. Those with a rectangular face should work to soften the appearance with a soft layered cut that can enhance cheekbones while disguising the corners of the face.
Haircuts for Heart Faces
The lob is a great haircut that works well for heart- shaped faces and is also a perfect haircut to try when transitioning from a longer length. A good balance to aim for with a heart face shape is a cut that decreases your brow width and increases the width of the lower half of your face keeping the length on the longer side, hitting the collar bone, as anything shorter tends to
look too boxy.
