The length is one and a half times of width.In other words, the width of your face is about 1/3 less than the length of your face. As it says, the oval shape is perfect , it fits to any hairstyles , no matter long , medium, or short hair.But we should avoid bangs in face and eyes, or the excellent face shape will be ruined.

In other words, the round shape means circular shape.The length is equal to the width.No bangs is ideal for the round face shape.But if you like bangs specially, the side-swept bangs will be your choice.What’s more, long straight hair ,substantial on the top could lengthen the round shape, and bring the attention to the jaw and bridge of nose.However, it is acknowledged that the short cut with adapted layers is great for the round.

Square Face

The shape is usually wide at the forehead and cheekbones but  narrow at the jawline.Add highlight on the top of your cheekbones to make them stand out and bring attention to your eyes.You can balance the face with long, side-swept bangs which “draw attention down and towards the eyes,” says LeCompte. But do’t let your stylist cut your bangs so short.Avoid choppy layers which hits at the chin.

Long  Face

The face shape is longer then its width, tall forehead and pointed chin.Brow-skimming ,side swept bangs or chin-length bobs will create an illusion of width.Curls and waves could be your choice. But never make long hair, it will drag down you face .

Triangular  Face
