Choosing the perfect hairstyle

Ever wondered why certain hairstyles suit some people really well and when you try that style yourself it just doesn’t sit right? Your face shape might not suit all styles, it’s best to speak to a hairstylist to find the best cut for you but in the meantime, here are our tips on how to accentuate your best features for your face shape:

Oval – Nearly any style will suit, the most flattering tends to be long layers, shoulder-length waves, full fringe, layered bob, or a side-swept pixie.

Heart – We recommend a blunt fringe, wavy layers, or chin-length bob with a fringe. Aim for soft angles to help balance out the longer forehead.

Square – To soften the edges around the fierce jawline a wispy fringe, soft side-swept bangs, or long layers may be the perfect hairstyle. For shorter cuts an asymmetrical fringe to create softer angles.

Round – We recommend either a long bob, long straight hair, voluminous waves, a shaggy bob, or a swoopy fringe with cropped sides to elongate the face.

Oblong/Rectangle – A similar approach to square faces. Layers, volume, and side-swept or feathered fringe. Add movement and texture to the hair.

Diamond – Showcase those high cheekbones with a short, cropped style. Or keep it long with face-framing layers.
