How to Adapt the Length of Your Hair to the Shape of Your Face We tell you how!

The right hairstyle can correct the shape of your face just as much as make-up can slim or tone down strong facial features. We show you which hair lengths are best for you and which ones should be avoided

Oval, round, square, rounded or perhaps heart-shaped, there are many facial shapes and even more hairstyles to choose from. Not all of us would be happy with a short bob or extra long strands of hair. Of course, we can wear whatever we like. However, it makes sense to find out which hair lengths suit us and bring out our best features. There is a reason why we like to follow the metamorphoses of stars.

Hairstyles for Oval Faces

The oval face is the ideal face shape. The forehead is neither too high nor too low, the cheeks are slender with well-defined bones, and the chin is softly rounded.

As a result, many hairstyles and virtually any hair length suit the oval face. The oval face allows both very short and long hair. Dependent on your preferences, you may also decide to wear bangs. We also recommend soft waves and curls.

Oval-faced women like Jessica Alba, Beyonce and Anne Hathaway wear this hair style.

Hairstyles for Round Faces

A full face without well-defined zygomatic bones and with a low forehead should be slenderized. This calls for long bobs, shoulder-length and extra-long hair as well as sharp, asymmetric cuts. It is better to forgo a straight fringe in favour of a longer side fringe, which gently covers the cheek.

What about Short Hair? You can cut your hair but only up to your jawline. Beware of straightened and sleek hair, which may unnecessarily widen the face.

Mila Kunis, Selena Gomez and Kirsten Dunst all have round faces.

Hairstyles for Square Faces

In this case, the features are quite strong, somewhat angular with a wide forehead and jaw. The hairstyle should soften these features. We recommend long hair including slight bangs and asymmetric cuts with strands of hair falling softly into the face.

Layered hairstyles are much more suitable than single-length hair. No hair ending in the chin line is allowed.

Stars with a square face shape include: Keira Knightley, Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie and Olivia Wilde.

Hairstyles for Chubby Faces

It is best to counterbalance the long rectangular shape of your face with hair styles, which optically shorten and “round” your face.

Medium long haircuts (including straight haircuts with full volume, wavy or curly hair) are ideal. This volume plays a key role on the sides of the face.

People like Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler and Giselle Bundchen look striking with their full face.

Hairstyles for Heart-shaped Faces

The heart-shaped face, otherwise known as the triangular face, is characterized by a broad forehead and a narrow chin. In this case, the hairstyle should add volume just at the jawline to balance out the proportions.

Medium long strands with bangs, known as lobs, are therefore appropriate. What you should definitely avoid are short haircuts and hair styles, which expose your forehead.

The most popular heart-shaped face wearers are: Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson.
