Round shaped faces are those faces which have a round chin and are wider from cheek


If you have a look on round shaped face then you can compare it with an orange shape.

Long Hairstyle:

The hairstyle for round shaped face should deflect its roundness so the best hairstyle that suits such faces

are long layers.

The reason behind choosing long hairstyle for round shaped face is to reduce the width of face and giving it a

longer look.

Short Hair With Soft Waves:

The main task for round shaped face is to give it an illusion of slimness so it can be achieved by short 

hairs having soft wavy look on it.

Diamond shaped faces have fabulous cheekbones.

These faces are wide from the middle of face and narrow from forehead and chin.

Long Layers And Avoid Short Bangs:

Long layers which are smooth against cheek suits best to these shaped people. Here our main goal is to 

reduce extra widening of cheek while broadening of forehead and chin so we avoid short bangs and too

much weight on top because it gives a thin and too long face look. 

For diamond face shaped we could tuck hairs behind the ear to show their beautiful cheekbones. 

If the chin is very pointy then you could adjust it with heavy hairs at neck area.

Oval shaped faces are wider from the temples and  they are narrowing down the chin.

These  faces are slightly longer than they are wide and you can compare them with an egg


They have good jawlines but they are slightly rounded.

Any Hair Cut:

Oval shaped faces are lucky faces and any hairstyle suits them. In these shaped faces,

we should be careful in not adding height on the top of head because it gives face a longer look.

Long shaped faces are noticeably longer in size than they are wide and look thin.

These shaped faces are very similar to oval faces but they have higher forehead and

cheekbones. These faces have prominent chin.

Bob Cut :

For this face shape we have to create an illusion of width near cheek bones to overcome

face elongation. Bob cut suits such faces as it add width to face. You can also add width by bangs. It's your

choice to select the type of bang, you could wear side-swept or blunt bangs. It is recommended not to wear

length hairstyle because it gives your face a very longer look.

Pear shaped face has small rounded cheekbones, wider chin and

smaller forehead area.

If you flip heart shaped face upside down then you can exactly find pear shaped face.

Exposed Forehead Hairstyle:

For pear shaped faces, it is recommend to expose forehead by wearing hair bands or tucking bangs with

clips because it not only looks beautiful but also draw attention upward away from jawlines.

You can also add hair width between ear and shoulder to overcome thin chin area. You can also do it by

tucking hairs behind the ear.

Layered shag cut suits best to this face shape because it create fullness on the upper half part and take away

attention to the jawlines. This hairstyle accentuates on other parts of face especially on eye area.


Pear shaped face doesn't look good in ponytail, short crops or one length hairstyle as it exposes

your cheekbones.

Heart shaped face has wide forehead and a narrow chin or pointy area.


The hairstyle that suits heart shaped face is either chin length or long length

hairstyle. A hairstyle that creates volume on the bottom half of face also looks superb to this type of

face. Shaggy hairstyle also looks flattering because it add volume to the downside of face.

Sideswept bangs is good to draw attention towards eyes.


It is recommended to avoid short hairstyle because it draws attention towards upper part of face.

Avoid to much height at the crown as it gives a very narrow chin look.

Square shaped faces are as long as they are wide. They have strong jawlines.

If you have this type of shape then you are lucky because most celebraties have

this type of shape these days but it is not like oval shaped face in which all hairstyles suit.


Sqaure shaped face looks best in short or medium length hairstyle. Layers also give them a stylish

look. Curly and wavy hairstyle gives roundness to face. By adding height at crown gives face a

longer look.Hair volume near temples and cheekbones gives face a round look. It is good to hide

jawlines with hairs.


Square shaped face doesnot look perfect with short hairstyle, this hairstyle gives a harsh look.
