Round Face Shape

The key to a flattering hairstyle on a round face is reducing the roundness making the face appear longer. Adele adds height to lengthen her face, she backcombs her large beehive softening the look with a wavy fringe.

Kelly Clarkson has chosen a shorter hairstyle for her round face. Kelly’s long graduated bob is a perfect hair style choice for her round face.  Her hair has been tapered in tighter at the back and the front has been cut slightly longer. This elongates her face making har face appear narrower and slimmer.

Long hair is the most flattering hair length so is perfect for round faces as long hair will naturally make the face appear longer and thinner.  Mila Kunis’ off centre parting adds softness to her curly hairstyle.

Hairstyles for Long Face Shapes

Adding width and body to your hairstyle will make a long face appear more in proportion. Charlize Theron adds body and large waves to widen her hair and make her long face shape appear more in proportion.

Kate Beckinsale wears her long straight hair with a blunt fringe.  Kate’s fringe is vital to her long straight hairstyle as it shortens her face and hides a long forehead making it appear more proportionate.

Sarah Jessica Parker wears her upstyle quite low and tight and wide, meaning it will shorten and widen her face which guides us to believe she has the perfect face shape.

Hair Cuts for Oval Face Shapes

Jennifer Aniston’s layers accentuate her cheekbones which makes this a very flattering hairstyle for her oval face shape.

Katherine Heigl’s deep side parting and loose bun are a great look for her strawberry blonde hair and oval face shape. The positiong of Katherine’s upstyle keeps her hair proportionate which is vital to this face shape.

Rhianna’s hair has been cut short at the back and sides with lots of length kept on top. Rhianna wears fringe swept to the side which flatters her face and softens her potentially ‘hard’ haircut, which gives her a more feminine look.

Square Face Shape Ideas for Hairstyles

Gwyneth Paltrow makes her face appear longer with her long hair narrowing her square face. Gwyneth’s centre parting is still on trend for this season with plenty of loose layers creating a ‘tousled’ beachy look.

Keira Knightley’s bob hairstyle softens her sharp jawbone making this a great hair cut for square face shapes.

Olivia Wilde’s centre-parted chignon is a perfectly flattering hair upstyle for people with square face shapes.  Olivia’s upstyle is a casual yet classy upstyle and is flattering for her square face shape.

Fringes for Face Shapes

Alexa Chung opts for a graduated fringe which complements her mid-length hair perfectly and is a great combination for her on trend ombre-coloured hair. This fringe suits square and long face shapes best.

Jennifer Lawrence keeps her fringe long and swept to the side. The swept fringe softens most hair cuts and is most flattering on square and round face shapes.

Taylor Swift’s straight fringe is dramatically blunt.  This fringe looks great on long and oval face shapes.
