Bangs, curls or bob: these hairstyles are best suited for your face shape

Round face

Do you have a round face and don’t want to emphasize this? Then it is best to have your hair straight or wavy next to your face. In general, long hair is best with a round face. It is best to avoid too much volume around your ears, and an ear-length hairstyle will probably not suit you, as this will make your face appear even rounder.

Heart-shaped face

People with a heart-shaped face often have apple-cheeks, a wide forehead and a narrow chin. Do you have this face shape? Then you’re in luck, because many hairstyles suit this face shape! A lot of volume on top of your head is good, because this emphasizes your face in a positive way. You can even go for a bold hairstyle, like bangs or a bob!

Oval face

Just like a heart-shaped face, many different hairstyles also suit an oval face. People with this face shape, usually have a hairline that is slightly rounded, and their jaws are slightly narrower than their temples. Medium length hairstyles look best with an oval face, such as a bob or a light blow hairstyle. It is better to avoid a short haircut, as this puts emphasis on the top of your head and this makes your face appear even longer.

Square face

A characteristic of a square face is that you have an angular jaw line. Chances are you want to soften this somewhat. You can do this by using bangs. Make sure that the hair falls around your face. So, straight bangs are not such a good idea. If you go for a hairstyle with a lot of volume, you will also ensure that your wide jaw line is less noticeable. For example, think of curls or layers. This makes your hair fall nicely around your face and your face will appear a bit rounder.
