Sometimes, it is just so hard to pick a Perfect Hairstyle that will suit us. We spend time browsing through fashion magazines just trying to pick out what style would look great on us. But when we finally choose one that we think is simply fabulous and take it to our hairstylist, sometimes the end results is so horrible that instead of prancing around and displaying our new do, we hide it by tying our hair in ponytails or wearing hats until our hair grows long enough to be cut once more.
Sometimes, it is not enough to just follow the trends and to have our hair done in what is considered the hottest and trendiest hairstyle around at the moment. We have to make sure that this hottest and trendiest hairstyle really suits our hair and the shape of our face. After all, we might just end up wasting money and needlessly frustrated, merely because we did not like what the hairstylist did to our hair.
What do we need to do when choosing the perfect hairstyle for us? Among the few things we should take into account when choosing hairdos is the shape of our face, as well as our age. But now let us discuss the right kind of hairstyle that goes with our age that is in style right now.
• Colour you sexy: Talk to your stylist about low lights at the side of the face and lighter highlights at the top of the head to create the illusion of lustrous length.
Chin length hair with a rounded line that mirrors face’s circular shape. Center parts. Short-short crops, straight “chopped” bangs. Fullness at side of ears. A rounded haircut ending at the chin will certainly add weight to your face shape. Because the widest part of your face is at the cheeks and ears, you need to avoid having the fullness of the cut here as it will make your face appear wider.
Other round face celebrities include:
Ingrid Bergman, Roseanne Barr, Kate Winslet, Natalie Merchant, Drew Barrymore, Christina Ricci, Charlotte Church
• If you have curly hair, coax soft, sexy, textured layers around your face to soften your strong features
• A short bob shape is a safe and sexy style. This works best on curly or wavy hair, just don’t let it grow any longer than your jaw line. Insist on a choppy cut around your chin – not a thick, blunt, bush of locks.
• Fringe options: A shorter, wispy fringe is low-key but will look gorgeous, especially if your hair is quite thick. A blunt fringe is really dramatic and will work well on all hair.
• Colour you sexy: Highlight hair above the ears to widen your face and low light above.
Short, full styles that emphasize upper face. Height at the crown. Severe, slicked back looks. If you are a dramatic heart shape, the short full styles with tapered necklines which emphasize the upper face will make you look top heavy. Too much height at the crown will give the appearance of a longer and narrower chin. Just remember if you have a dramatic heart shape face, you have great cheekbones to emphasize! Don’t miss the boat by getting a cut which is to top heavy.
the plague shoulder -length and straight styles such as the one Celine Dion wears… no wonder she looks so miserable!)
cheekbones more structured. Try a graduated bob cut on to the face and higher at the back. Alternatively, a choppy shag will suit your face shape.
• Fringe options: Don’t go near a short blunt fringe – it will only emphasise a round face. On the other hand, a long wispy fringe will look great and suit fine hair. And if your hair is thicker, a longer fringe that you can sweep to the side will lengthen your face.
• Your fringe options: Most hair types, except curly, will be able to take a fringe that touches the eyebrows and which is longer and layered at the sides. But if your hair’s thick or frizzy, layer the fringe throughout to thin it out. Look at the way Victoria Beckham does a great job of disguising her square jaw: she simply sweeps fine pieces of hair just over her forehead and eyes.
• Colour you sexy: Lightening hair all around the face will soften a square face.
Long straight styles that accentuate square jawbone. “Linear” straight bangs or center parts. A straight bob ending at the jaw line is the wrong thing to do for your face shape. You can wear a layered bob, however it should end above or below the jaw line. Make sure in styling that you achieve some roundness to the shape and some height at the crown or bangs, and you will be on the right track.

Kristin Scott Thomas Holly Marie Combs Sandra Bullock Demi Moore Isabella Rosellini
• Fine Hair? If you’d like it long, ask your stylist for soft layers throughout. It’s the best way to add volume – and sex appeal. If you want to go super short, you’re in luck. Your hair texture and face shape is ideal to carry off one of the catwalk’s favourite styles.
• Medium-textures hair? Try a flirty, flicky razor cut – for inspiration, see Trish Goff… she cuts her own! Too edgy? A short bob longer at the sides and shorter at the back would look wonderful.
• Fringe options: If you have thick hair, you could go for a sexy short fringe or one that’s long and blunt. For fine hair, a long wispy fringe is for you.
• Colour you sexy: Ask your stylist about low lighting the hair around your face to accentuate your oval shape.
Covering up your “perfect” features with heavy bangs, or too forward-directed styles.
In wearing your hair style on your face, you’ll lose your face shape behind the hair. It may appear to add weight to your face.
