The shape of one's face determines which hair cuts look best, according to TheHairstyler.com. The chosen hairstyle however should reduce non pleasing attributes and promote positive ones.
Oval-shaped faces work well with just about all hairstyles. People with round faces, on the other hand, should avoid bob cuts and straight, heavy bangs. Square-shaped faces look best with hairstyles that fall onto the face and cover the jaw line. People with heart-shaped faces should try chin-length hairstyles with texture. Triangular faces do best with layered hairstyles, as they soften the jaw line. Diamond-shaped faces look great with styles that include straight-across bangs. People with oblong faces should avoid extra height and consider chin- to shoulder-length cuts.
