Is There A Hairstyle That Suits Every Face Shape?

If there's a hairstyle that suits every face shape, it hasn't been invented yet! However, the Bliss Hair specialists can adapt most hairstyles to suit different face shapes including adding layers, adapting short hairstyles and finding your perfect fringe. If there's a particular hairstyle that you simply must have, ask your Bliss stylist about how to vary the style to suit the shape of your face.

Hairstyles for Rectangular Faces

Clients with rectangle shaped faces are advised to avoid hairstyles which elongate the face, such as longer hairstyles without layers or short fringes. Layered hairstyles which are cut to your cheekbones, will highlights your features and soften the angles of your face. Blunt fringes or curtain bangs will draw the eye to the upper part of your face. 

The Best Hairstyles For Oval Faces

If you have an oval shaped face, you're in luck! Oval faces are well balanced and will suit a variety of hairstyles and look particularly great with shorter hairstyles. Longer hairstyles with minimal layers or soft waves can highlight your cheekbones, whilst a central parting will help to maintain the balance of your oval shaped face.

Hairstyles For Square Faces

A square-shaped face can appear broad as the measurements are of a similar width from forehead to jaw. Compliment your bone structure by selecting a hairstyle that softens your features such as longer, layered hairstyles, side swept fringes or side partings. 

Hairstyles For Heart Shaped Faces

If you have a heart-shaped face, a side parted pixie cut could be perfect for you as it reduces the appearance of a wide brow and balances the lower portion of your face. A long bob (or "Lob") haircut will ensure fullness around your jaw, as will medium wavy hairstyles.  

Hairstyles For Diamond Shaped Faces

Diamond faced shapes tend to be angular with wide cheekbones and look fabulous when softened with a layered, wavy hairstyle. Side swept fringes or side partings will balance a narrow jawline whilst simple ponytails can bring out your stunning cheekbones and flatter your face. 

Haircuts For Round Shaped Faces

Hairstyles that add definition and shape are a must for those with rounder faces, such as long wavy styles or even a punky pixie cut! Chin length bob haircuts and full curls should be avoided as they can make your face look more round. 

Hairstyles For Triangle Shaped Faces

Hairstyles that balance your triangular face shape and draw the eye away from the bottom half towards your cheekbones are recommended, such as shorter cuts or wavy medium length hairstyles. Add a side swept fringe or curtain bangs to draw attention to the upper portion of the face.
