The right hairstyle for you
Tired of trying out different
hairstyles and coming up with ghastly results? Many of us donut realize
that only a particular kind of style will go well with our facial structure.
The right way, say stylists,
is to find what works with the structure of the face and looks flattering.
A flattering hairstyle can be the most important single factor in your
appearance. Not only does it tell about your character, it balances your
body, frames your face and complements your clothes and lifestyle. A really
professional haircut is a valuable investment, because it will make you
feel good as well as look good.
When choosing a new hairstyle
you should look carefully at the shape of your face.
What kind of face do you have?
If you have an oval face, you
are lucky, as any style will suit you. A long face is best complemented
by short hair that is quite full, with a fringe. Don't go for a severe
long hairdo that will only make your face look longer.
If you have a round face, you
should aim to add length. If you don't want long hair, part your hair on
the side or add fullness on top. Avoid a neat bob with a fringe. A round
face gives an overall appearance of roundness. A full face is flattered
by a short, layered cut. The top of the head should be given a ‘long’ look
with a layered, curly style, extending to the back. If making a topknot,
get a lot of elongated tendrils out. That balances your face. A lot of
volume to the hair will give it a flat look. A severe, tied back style
also makes the face look rounder. Avoid it.
A wide forehead and square jawbone
means you have a square face. A style with the hair 2.5 cm, or so below
the chin sits pretty on a square face. If your hair is thick or wavy, you
can go all one length. With straight or fine hair, you can opt for a slight
angle in the front. Donut go in for bobs. Blunt clipped bangs are also
not recommended because they would emphasize the squareness of your face.
All a square face needs is a little softening if the jawline is too heavy.
Draw the attention away from the jaw with a diagonal fringe forward from
the hairline and around the ears if you wear your hair up, or long loose
hair with a bit of bounce below chin level.
A Heart shaped face is also
easy to flatter. All you need to do is avoid a heavy slab of fringe that
will make your face into a triangle. A softer fringe will help. Try a soft
fringe too for a high forehead, or try a very heavy fringe that stars quite
a way back ans is 'V' - shaped, with the point of the 'V' in the centre
of your forehead. If you have a receding or double chin, you need to draw
attention away from it. Your hair will look best either piled to the top
and back of your head, to balance the chin, or hanging loose to hide it.
A large nose needs a short, fluffy style anything sleek or straight will
only over-emphasize it.
A long, thin face with a narrow
chin is oblong. A short, perky bob will go very nicely with your kind of
looks. It should be short at the back and the angled chin length, in the
front. Wearing it with a side parting, with bangs brushed to the side,
rounds out an oblong face. A longer bob, about five-cm, below the chin,
will also look good on this kind of face. Layered hair will not suit you
at all. Long hair, too, makes the face seems lengthier
