Today, innumerable ideas on the latest trend in hair cuts and styling are available in fashion magazines, newspapers and the Internet. Although you are given numerous options to choose from, it is always suggested to go for a style that is best suited for you. We are here to give you a generic idea of how to land in the perfect hairstyle, by considering the face of your shape, texture and form of your hair.
The shape of your face is an important thing to consider, before you
set your mind for a new hairstyle. Generally, face shapes are broadly
divided into eight types - oval, round, square, oblong, triangle, pear,
heart and diamond. Layering, angled bob, long side swept bangs are some
of the flattering hairstyles for round faces. In case you have square
shaped face, go for short and spiky cuts and sleek styles with layers.
You can sport short, long, straight or wavy hair for your oval face.
Angular bobs and long waves are the best bet for oval shape. Side swept
bangs and brow-grazing fringe are good for heart-shaped face.
If you have a diamond-shaped face, go for hairstyle that has width at
the top and bottom and sleekness in the wider part of the face.
Chin-length haircut with temple-to-temple fringes is the best bet for a
diamond shaped face. For a pear-shaped face, the haircut should symmetry
to the narrow forehead and wide cheeks and jaw line. You should
concentrate fullness at the temple and the fringe area, make it sleek at
the cheeks and jaw line. Layered hair with fullness at the crown would
look best for pear shaped face. For an oblong shaped face, layered bobs
and choppy cuts are best suited. Short to medium layered hairstyles are
best suited for triangle shaped face.
The texture of the hair is yet another decisive factor, when it comes
to styling of the hair. Generally, the hair texture is divided into
three types - fine, medium and coarse. If you have very fine and thin
hair, you should opt for the hairstyle that does not tend to break your
locks. In addition, the hairstyles should not be too tight. As far as
the haircut for fine hair is concerned, you may opt for a short, layered
hairstyle, which is manageable for the texture. Angle layered haircut is
suitable for medium to thick hair types. If you have very coarse hair,
go for the haircut that tends to enhance the volume of the hair, which
you are already blessed with. Loose buns are appropriate for coarse
The form of the hair - whether it is straight, wavy or curly - plays an
important role, when it comes to choosing the perfect hair cut. Straight
hair is a very versatile form, because almost every cut would look good.
You can go for layered hairstyles, asymmetric bob, traditional bob,
medium, long or short haircut, if you have straight hair. You may also
stylize the hair differently, by using curling irons, to give it
entirely different texture. The hairstyle best suited for curly hair
will depend upon your facial shape and texture of your hair, for a great
extend. Talking about the wavy hair, you can either straighten or curl
the locks. Whatever the hairstyle is, be sure to consider your facial
shape, texture, color and form of your hair.
