When choosing the right hairstyle, consider face shape, the amount of time and effort that the selected style requires, and whether or not the selected style works with the natural texture of the hair. Consulting a professional hairstylist to discuss options is often helpful.
Many people look through books and magazines to find hairstyles to consider, and they bring pictures to professional hairstylists to discuss or implement the style. The hairstylist should help determine if the selected style complements facial features and body shape. For example, a style that sweeps back may make a round face look even more round, while a style that works with certain facial features, such as soft tendrils framing the face, can soften certain features and flatter a round face.
Consulting a hairstylist helps with finding the style that works best with an individual's facial features and body type, but it is up to individuals to consider how hairstyles work with their personal lifestyles. If the style is for a specific event, such as taking pictures, that doesn't require daily upkeep, preparation time and the amount of effort needed may not be an issue. However, if looking for a daily style, consider one that works with the hair's natural tendencies.
