Q:

What is a good haircut for my face shape?

A:

According to InStyle, round faces are best suited by short, heavily-textured haircuts or medium-length cuts that have a few layers around the edges. Since oval face shapes are considered ideal, people with this face shape can wear just about any cut, says Allure.

Heart-shaped faces often look fuller through the chin with a cut that creates volume at the jaw line. Similarly, square faces look softer with a cut that's directed toward the face. A cut that creates volume at the root of the hair also works well for this face shape. The goal of any cut is to make the face appear more oval.

    What is the best haircut for an oval face?

    A:

    Although nearly any style flatters oval faces, Allure recommends cuts with layers that fall in line with the facial features one most wants to highlight. Nearly any length hair works well except very short pixie cuts, which can exaggerate an oval face's length.
