Is There a Hairstyle That Suits All Face Shapes?

We are sorry to say that there is no one size fits all hair style, or at least not one that has been discovered yet! However, the Blonde Envy hair specialists can adapt most hairstyles to suit your face shape. This can be done by adding layers, finding your perfect fringe or adapting a shorter hairstyle to suit you perfectly.

Come and visit us and we can help you find the perfect hairstyle for your face shape, or create a hairstyle that you desire to work with your face shape. 

Haircuts For Round Faces

Round face shapes tend to have a similar width and length along with prominent, rounded cheeks. Add definition and shape to a round face with long layers, or edgy pixie cuts for the most flattering hairstyles. Avoid voluminous curls, long cuts with no layers and chin length hairstyles.

Haircuts For Rectangular Faces

If you have a rectangular face we would advise you to steer clear of straight, long hairstyles without layers or short fringes. Ask your Blonde Envy stylist for layered hair styles, cut to your cheekbones. Soft cut fringes or curtain bangs are most suited to rectangular faces and draw the eye from the bottom portion of the face. 

Hairstyles For Triangular Faces

As a triangle shaped face traditionally becomes wider from the forehead to the jawline. Choppy pixie cuts and side swept fringes are flattering for triangle shaped faces, whilst chin length hairstyles should be avoided as they can make your jawline look wider. 

Hairstyles For Oval Faces

Oval faces are well balanced and will suit most hairstyles, although we think that they look particularly great with short cropped hairstyles. Longer hairstyles with minimal layers or soft waves can highlight your cheekbones, whilst a central parting will help to maintain the balance of your oval shaped face.

Hairstyles For Diamond Faces

Those with diamond shaped faces should opt for face softening layered, wavy hairstyles with a side parting. A chin length bob will balance a narrow jawline. If you often wear your hair up, a ponytail pulled back to the middle of your head will flatter your face shape and enhance your cheekbones.

Haircuts For Square Faces

Square-shaped face shapes usually feature a broad forehead, a strong jawline and wide cheekbones. A hair cut which softens your features is essential to compliment your bone structure, such as longer layered hairstyles and side swept fringes which draw the eye away from your jawline and towards your cheekbones. 

Hairstyles For Heart Shaped Faces

If you have a heart-shaped face, you should choose a hairstyle which balances out the lower portion of your face. A side-parted short hairstyle with textured ends can look fantastic on a heart shaped face, as can a jaw length hairstyle, which will ensure fullness around your jaw.

Medium length wavy hairstyles will also flatter a heart shaped face.
