So, how do you choose the perfect haircut? 

The trick is finding a haircut that will balance and flatter your facial shape and features.


  •  Is your face heart shaped?  Heart shaped faces look fabulous with styles that create volume around the chin or waves in the lower half of your hair. Avoid having too many curls or too much volume in the upper part of your hair, and concentrate instead of volume in the lower half.  This will help to create balance.


  •  If your face is long, stay away from haircuts and styles that are straight and past shoulder length as this can make your face look even longer.  The most flattering haircuts and styles will be those that are near or above your shoulders.  You can add soft waves  or curls to your hair for some volume on the sides to balance the length of your face.   


  • If your face is square shaped,  opt for a haircut that is shoulder length or longer.    Soft asymetrical haircuts are perfect for this face type.   Hairstyles in which your hair can be parted on the side with side fringe or side swept bangs are also great.  This will help to soften the lines of your face.  As a general rule, it is best to avoid haircuts that have horizontal type lines such as short chin-length bobs and straight across bangs that can draw attention to square jaw lines and sharp angles.  Choose softer styles without obvious lines instead.
  •  If you have a facial shape that is more rounded,  we recommend avoiding styles that are super short or above shoulder length.  Choose a longer hair style with some layers around your face that can be swept away from your cheekbones.  If you like bangs, then go for a style with long bangs that are wispy at the sides of your forehead.
