Best Haircuts For Your Face Shape


best haircuts for your face shape

Best haircuts for your face shape. Whenever I go to see my stylist, I’m always concerned with the fact that my hair is sometimes unruly and sometimes curls and is sometimes straight. What I forget about is my face shape and whether the haircut will be optimal for me. My face is on the long and narrow side and if I’m not careful, that can be accentuated. No matter what your own face shape is, there are many wonderful options for you. It may be a as simple as angling your cut or changing your part and voila, it’s an even better you!

Round Face. If you have short hair, try an asymmetrical bob and it will break up the roundness of your face. Or if you are feeling a little more daring, go for a choppy pixie cut. It will add height to your face and make your eyes the clear standout. The key to downplaying a round face is to keep your look sleek. If you have long hair, keep the layers long so that they don’t give you extra volume. A smooth ponytail will show off your cheekbones and look gorgeous.

Oval Face. A long oval face begs for straight bangs, as it cuts the length of your face. Another great option are long beach-y waves because they add volume and width to your look. For those of you with short hair, try some side bangs as they will break up the length of your face. Or keep your hair shorter in the back to show off your neck and shoulders.

Square Face. For those with a square face, it’s all about softening your jawline. A short bob that hugs and contours your face will look stunning. If you want a more casual look, how about trying a messy shag. Of if you cannot give up your long hair, opt for soft long waves as they will counter the angularity of your bone structure.

Heart Face. A beautiful heart begs for waves that frame the chin as they will fill out the narrowness of the chin, balancing it with a wider forehead. A center part will have your hair falling over the sides of your face, streamlining the width. A deep side part will bring the focus straight to your eyes.

Just like when you are choosing new clothing, what the perfect haircut comes down to is proportions. If you love your eyes, then accentuate them. Soften any hard lines and always remember that no matter what haircut you choose, everyone wants to see your beautiful smile!

Do you consider your face shape before choosing your haircut?

  1. This is a really great post! I have a slight asymmetrical cut now and it suits my face wonderfully 🙂
    Jenny // Mish Mosh Makeup

    1. Thank you! That’s funny because that’s exactly what I have now!

  2. So funny that you posted this today. I have been needing a haircut for longer than I’d like to admit but don’t really trust anyone near my head with a pair of scissors in SK. Perhaps I should just bite the bullet? I haven’t changed my hair style in ages, always trying to go for long Victoria Secret-esq hair but never QUITE getting there. What do you think? Everyone is going for that mid/shoulder length cut. I wonder if I’d regret it immediately if I chopped mine off. Hahaha! Thanks for sharing and sorry for rambling! xoxo

    1. Always Love your comments, thank you so much!!!!! I struggle so much with my hair too, it’s always close but not quite. What helped me was meeting with the stylist first and listening to what they had to say about my hair before committing to a cut. I’ve walked away from a lot of those meetings! I found a really decent person now but it took forever! I rarely look for trendy salons, instead I look for people who participate in competitions or who’ve worked with film/tv. They are usually better…. I cut my hair and I love it but it definitely took some adjusting to. Let me know if you decide to cut it!

      1. Yeah, I think trust is the key word I have to look for and not trendy- this is an issue, have you ever been to Moose Jaw? Hahaha!
        My “current” hair dresser is in Calgary and I’ve definitely been known to make the commute for a cut and colour but it is so exhausting being limited to this. The more I think about it the more I feel like I should just do it but then I know I’d have that dreaded hair separation anxiety. Only time will tell I guess…

  3. Hope Howland (@HHDesigns)

    So funny because I just got my hair cut and I love it.. tis the season I guess to get a hair cut!

    1. I love getting a good cut, I love how I feel afterwards!

  4. Thanks for the tips!

    Candice | Beauty Candy Loves

    1. My pleasure!

  5. Great post! I cut my own hair this year twice- mistakes, both times! In my defence, I just had a baby and I had no time to go to the salon. I ended up at the salon and pretended a friend cut my hair. The stylist was sweet and hooked me up with a shorter style that suited my round face. I do miss my long locks though, so I’m going to grow my hair out for the next few months. Is your hair naturally curly? I’m thinking about getting loose waves, but I wonder about the maintenance.

    1. Yeah I’ve resorted to cutting my own hair too… It happens to the best of us! My hair changes. It’s naturally curly now but it used to be straight. It’s quite heavy so it behaves differently depending on the length. I find Oribe products to be among the best when it comes to maintaining my curls though. I use their oil after washing my hair and I don’t need anything else!

  6. I have a round ovalish face and I’m rocking a chin-length bob that is now grown some and because the layers have all lengthened, it’s thick and heavy. I look forward to seeing my hair stylist and get it layered without reducing the overall length that I want to keep. Do you have any advice for dear old me who always ends up getting a different haircut than I initially planned. I always love layers, choppy layers that accentuate my wavy natural curls. 🙂 xx

    missreverie | Fashionista NOW

    1. Oh that sounds similar to what I have, in terms of a haircut. If you’re up for it, I would go for a deep side part with “side bangs” and go for the layers. This will bring the focus to your eyes.Depending on how curly your hair is a little bit longer in the front and choppier in the back would be beautiful too. It’s classic but modern and will show off your neck and shoulder line (also the perfect excuse to get some dramatic earrings).
      Post pics please!

  7. Nice post!!! Thanks for the tips! Lucy

    1. Thank you, my pleasure!

  8. DEFINITELY. I have a roundish face and absolutely no jawline whatsoever. I can never have short hair because I’d probably disappear or end up looking like Honey BooBoo’s mom. Picking the right cut is essential!

    Have a great week!


    1. Ha! You’re too funny. Thank you.

  9. Love this post! I have a defined jawbone and I am opting for a wavy bob as well. I like layers as they make my thin hair look much fuller. Right now I am growing out my bangs & wear a side part. I’ve been wearing my bangs pulled back but I’m not sure I love exposing my forehead. Lol! Anyone with me on this?!


    1. Thanks so much for your amazing comment! I have to admit that the older I get the more I want some fringe covering my forehead!

  10. Hi Caroline!

    I love your suggestions. My face is more diamond shaped, do you have any suggestions that might suit me? I’ve been told that recommendations for oval faces are pretty similar and would probably work?
    Lily x

    1. Yes! So a diamond shape is similar to an oval (really it’s just a variation). If your hair is long then beautiful layers to create volume would be wonderful. Or with short hair I would do some side swept bangs for a little bit of drama. Oh, let me know what you decide on, I would love to see it!
