How To Choose A Haircut That Flatters Your Face Shape

How To Choose A Haircut That Flatters Your Face Shape
Have you ever visited a salon with photo in hand of one of your fav celebrities and requested that haircut, and upon leaving you discover that your bangs that look so fabulous on Tara Banks just don’t do it for your face? Qu’est-il arrivé?

Well, my dear, not only does Tara have a team of stylists, but it’s probably because bangs just aren’t the haircut for your face shape. But that’s ok – no worries. We have a few tips here to help you get to know your face shape so you can choose the ideal hairstyles that suit you. Then you can be a jet setter like your favorite celebrity without even having to have your own personal hair stylist.

The wonderful thing about A Diva’s Hidden Hair is that receiving a hair system is just not about the hair system, but it’s also about the overall look of the client. The client must take in consideration the shape of her head, face shape, and her lifestyle. We educate our clients on choosing the right style for the right reasons as well as a healthy lifestyle.

As a general hairstyling rule, try to achieve an oval shape. Why? Because it’s the most perfect and pleasing shape to the human eye. To accomplish this – wide faces need lengthening and long faces need shortening.

Discovering Your Face Shape

Grab a photo of yourself that has the hair styled away from your face. Then take a look at the photos and descriptions below and find the best match. It’s important to remember that even though your face may not be an exact match of any single shape, it will resemble one shape over all.
