Face shape: oval

Your face shape is harmonious, the width of your cheekbones is more important than that of your forehead and your jawline. Your features are soft and easy to show off with a short or long haircut. Let yourself go as you please, but be sure to opt for a modern cut and color! No overly complicated haircut  whether short or long.

Face shape: Elongated

Your face looks like an oval face, but narrower and more elongated. The idea will be to choose a haircut that will break the length of the face a little. Here again, the best thing is to favor volume with, for example, beautiful wavy curls (loosely defined curls that add volume) and a mid-length.

Face Shape: Rectangular

Your face looks like a square face, but more elongated and an oval face, but with more defined features. The right hairstyle will soften your features and make your face appear less long. Go for a structured haircut with volume in the jawline and tapered locks to frame the face.

Face shape: Triangle pointing down 

Your cheekbones are not really marked, your forehead is wide, your chin is narrow and your jawline is also narrow. The objective of the cut will be to cover the forehead by opting for example for a large wick on the side to balance the proportions. You can also let loose and go straight for thick bangs, but I find the bangs on the side more refined and sexy.

Face shape: triangle pointing up

Your forehead is narrow and your jaws are very prominent and protruding. Go for a long or mid-length layered haircut to slim down your lower face. Make sure, however, to always keep as much volume as possible on top of the head to make your forehead look wider.

To avoid: the boyish cut and the fringe.

Haircut and face shape: other methods

It is sometimes difficult to see for ourselves what our exact face shape is, but we can normally identify which parts are more prominent than others and vice versa. I therefore suggest a few tips for you to understand how to choose the right haircut according to the easily identifiable parts of the face.

Long face : avoid haircuts that are too long or too short, we prefer mid-length or square cuts below the jawbones.

Wide, long or rounded forehead : favor a large lock on the side to cover your forehead and soften your face.

Narrow forehead: avoid covering your forehead and favor haircuts that bring volume above your head. The disheveled hairstyle and the wavy curls will highlight well.

Wide jaws : favor long or medium-length, slightly wavy layered haircuts to soften your features . Avoid cutting your hair above the mouth if you want to opt for a short haircut. Make sure you have highlights that lay along your jawline to frame your face. All of these tricks will give the impression of smaller jaws.

The best places to cut your hair

If you are still unable to determine the morphology of your face, you can always try the face morpho test quizzes available online, which are quite effective for the most part. You can also call on a good hairstylist who will be able to advise you on the best cut for your face shape.
