Cuts For Your Face Shape


Find out whether you’re a heart, oval, round or square because there’s a perfect (and not so perfect) way to wear your hair. It’s time to flaunt those features, pretty girl…

Your face shape: OVAL/LONG

OVAL/LONG


You fall into this category if the widths of your brow, cheekbones and jaw are almost equal, and you have a gently rounded hairline.

FAMOUS FACES
Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel

YOUR SUPER SNIP
“This is the most versatile face shape. You can pull off almost any look—short or long, straight or wavy,” explains celebrity stylist Riccardo Maggiore of Riccardo Maggirore Salon in New York City. “Sophisticated bobs, bangs and long, beachy waves are especially flattering.”

Your face shape: ROUND

ROUND


Your hairline and chin are rounded, and your face is nearly as wide as it is long.

FAMOUS FACES
Fergie, Drew Barrymore, Ginnifer Goodwin

YOUR SUPER SNIP
Try cuts that fall just below the chin. “Soft layers are great because they’ll make your face appear slimmer and tend to remove bulk from the sides,” shares celebrity stylist Riccardo Maggiore of Riccardo Maggirore Salon in New York City. “Bangs are flattering, too, but keep them long or sideswept.”

Your face shape: SQUARE

SQUARE


If you have a strong, straight jawline and an equally straight hairline, and the length of your face is almost equal to its width, you’re a square face type.

FAMOUS FACES
Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Nicole Richie

YOUR SUPER SNIP
The key to your best style is a cut that softens your angular jaw and forehead. “Soft, long layers around the face with a long, sideswept bang work fantastically,” notes hair pro Benjamin Mohapi, director of the Galvin Benjamin Salon Group. Are you more of a cropped cutie? “You can also get away with a short, spikey cut,” says celebrity stylist Riccardo Maggiore of Riccardo Maggirore Salon in New York City.

Your face shape: HEART/DIAMOND

HEART/DIAMOND


This is you if you’re face is wide at the brow and near the hairline but especially narrow at the jaw.

FAMOUS FACES
Kim Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson

YOUR SUPER SNIP
The goal is to draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones. “Brow-grazing fringe, sideswept bangs, a strong part and hair that falls at or below your jawline will look amazing,” comments celebrity stylist Riccardo Maggiore of Riccardo Maggirore Salon in New York City. “If you want a short cut, keep top layers soft and long. If you are opting for a longer look, go for long layers that graze your cheekbones.”

  1. Mary Gear says:

    The best haircut that I ever had would be a long shag about 15 years ago at a JC Penny salon. The girl that had cut my hair also turned out to be an expert colorist and the only hairdresser that would color my hair the way I wanted it. I wanted to color my hair a jet black on the bottom half and the top half to be almost platinum blonde, which is the first times s that any stylist could get my hair to be the color blonde with no orange or yellow in it. The criteria that I verbalized to every colorist before my new one Tara
