How Do I Know What My Face Shape Is? 

Discovering your face shape is quick and easy. Simply take a picture of yourself with your hair tied back, trace the outside of your face and compare to the images below. This will show you which shape your face most resembles.

Which Hairstyle Suits All Face Shapes? 

We are sorry to say that there is no one size fits all hair style, or at least not one that we have found! However, our hair specialists in our Clacton-on-Sea hair salon can adapt most hairstyles to suit your face shape. This can be done by adding layers, finding your perfect fringe or adapting a short hairstyle to suit you perfectly.

Come and visit us and we can help you find the perfect hairstyle for your face shape, or create a hairstyle you love to work with your face shape. 

Haircuts For Rounder Faces

Round face shapes tend to have similar width and length as well as prominent, rounded cheeks. Add definition and shape with long layers, or edgy pixie cuts for the most flattering hairstyles. Avoid full curls, long cuts with no layers and chin length hairstyles.

Haircuts For Rectangular Shaped Faces

If you have a rectangular face avoid straight, long hairstyles without layers or short fringes. Go for layered hair styles, cut to your cheekbones. Soft cut fringes or curtain bangs are most suited to rectangular faces and draw the eye from the bottom half of the face. 

Hairstyles For Triangle Shaped Faces

As a triangle shaped face is traditionally wider at the jawline than at the forehead, we would recommend choppy pixie cuts and side swept fringes are flattering for triangle shaped faces, whilst bob haircuts should be avoided as they can make your jawline look wider. 

Hairstyles For Oval Faces

Oval faces are well balanced and can suit a wide range of hairstyles, they look particularly great with short cropped hairstyles. Longer hairstyles with minimal layers or soft waves can highlight your features and bring out your cheekbones. A central parting will help to maintain the balance of your oval shaped face.

Hairstyles For Diamond Faces

Those with diamond shaped faces could opt for face softening layered, wavy hairstyles with a side parting. Balance a narrow jawline with a chin length bob or, if you often wear your hair up, a pulled back ponytail will flatter your face shape and enhance your cheekbones.

Hairstyles For Square Faces

As square-shaped face shapes usually feature a broad forehead, a strong jawline and wide cheekbones, a hair cut which softens your features is essential to compliment your bone structure. Opt for longer layered hairstyles and side swept fringes to draw away from your jawline and towards your cheekbones. 

Haircuts For Heart Shaped Faces

If you have a heart-shaped face, you should choose a hairstyle which reduces the appearance of a wide brow and balances out the lower portion of your face. A side-parted pixie cut with textured ends can look fantastic on a heart shaped face, as can a longer bob haircut, which will ensure fullness around your jaw.

Medium length wavy hairstyles will also flatter a heart shaped face.
