For those seeking individuality and style there are many hair cuts out there. It is important to keep in mind that some hair cuts look differently on different facial shapes. There are a few different facial shapes. There are round faces, square faces, oval faces, long faces, and heart faces.
For rounder faces it is important that you remember a few important things. Avoid short, curly hair. Hair cuts that are all one length typically emphasize on the roundness of your face. Larger women are not the only ones with round faces. The gorgeous Catherine Zeta-Jones has a round face as does Kate Bosworth. Also, if you have a round face you FINALLY have something in common with Oprah! A-lined hair styles that goes all the way to beneath your chin typically look fantastic. Soft layers are amazing and make you look less round. Tapered ends are fantastic for this type of face shape too.
More square faces have a lot of options, too. Get your hair textured with choppy ends or even curls. It is also possible to have spiky cuts (See: Kate Gosselin) and long layered hair too. If you decide to get your longer cut maybe start with layering from the jawline down. That will spruce up your do and bring something new without chopping all of your hair off. Don't feel alone about your facial shape as many beautiful celebrities have it too. Angelina Jolie has a square facial shape and you are just as beautiful as she is! Hair cuts to avoid would be bobs that are of one length and bangs that are bluntly cut.
For those that have oval face shapes hair cuts should not be at all a problem. With this shape you can have almost any hair cut! Angular bobs will be great to promote bone structure while blunt bangs will show off gorgeous eyes. For those who like longer hair styles think of the surfer girl hair style. They are typically long and wavy.
There are styles to avoid such as anything that adds height to your head. Short layers cause the face to look longer than it really is. Also avoid having curly hair if you have a short hair cut. The beautiful Kate Hudson has this facial shape as does Jada Pinkett Smith.
For those that have long facial shapes cuts that will make you look beautiful are chin length bobs, brow skimming bangs, and curls & waves. It is important to add width or at least the illusion of width. Don't have hair that is way too long it will make your face look even longer. Have some sort of v shaped style. Avoid the seriously short hair cuts and make sure that you stock up volumizer.
For those with heart shaped faces it is a good idea to have a side swept bang style and a strong part. Having hair that falls below the jawline will help make your chin look less pointy. Remember to avoid short bangs and choppy layers.
