Wondering what haircut would best suit your face? We’ve done the research for you. The next time you head out for your overdue haircut, check out these expert tips on the top trending, celebrity-inspired haircuts, and the face shapes they’re best suited for
Layers For Those Luscious Locks
Need a haircut but unwilling to part with your long locks? Ask your stylist for textured layers! The cut will give your hair edge and allow for a more natural look.
Stars That Rocked The Look: Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Kate Middleton, Selena Gomez and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Best Suited For: Most face types, but is best meant for those with a round face. Layers are an easy way to make your hair, and not your face, seem fuller. Light layers on the bottom keep volume away from the sides (where you don’t need it) and focuses it near the ends (where you want it).
Bob Cut For The Bold
Turn up the heat with a classic bob; they’re getting shorter this year. The 1920s inspired bob is a bold alternative if you’re looking for something short, stylish, with easy upkeep. For the perfect bob, make sure the hair clears the shoulders, meaning there should be little or no space between your longest piece and your shoulders.
Celebrities That Rocked The Look: Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Charlize Theron and Anushka Sharma.
Best Suited For: Those with heart-shaped or oval faces. If your shoulders are extra wide or if your neck is really short, avoid the Bob. Bob haircuts put the focus on your neck, décolletage, chin, shoulders, face and jawline, so you have no security blanket of hair when you get a bob. This cut looks good on those with medium or wavy hair.
Fall In Love With Lobs
If you’ve been wondering about the hair trend that’s taking the world by storm, the lob is nothing but a long bob. You can flip it from side to side and easily wear it straight or wavy. Tip: Keep your lob on the sleek side with less layers and a more refined cut.
Stars That Rocked The Look: Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Courtney Cox, Khloe Kardashian and Priyanka Chopra.
Best Suited For: Any face type, but avoid getting a lob if you have extremely thick or thin hair. You might want to also add bangs to the look, but make sure it doesn’t start to look like a wig. Hair covering the forehead and falling on the sides of your face can overwhelm your beautiful face. Keep the bangs light and side swept if possible. It can soften a strong jaw or thin out a round face.
Pixie Cut For The Coy
A pixie cut is a generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. A pixie with soft side-swept bangs softens any hard features. A coy pixie cut that’s clipped evenly on the sides and nape with short layers on top, works best. Though short, it is soft and feminine.
Stars That Rocked The Look: Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry and Mandira Bedi.
Best Suited For: Heart or oval-shaped faces that those with fine or medium textures—coarse, curly, or thick hair would get too puffy. Experts recommend blow-drying with your hands, rather than a brush, and using fingers to smooth the hair down. Make sure you instruct your stylist properly about the length you want, because he/she may go way too short!
Bringing Bangs Back
From lash grazing and parted, to side swept and fringes, bangs go with all of the above hairstyles! Bangs can make a boring cut edgy, take years off a face, bring attention to the eyes and show off your cheekbones. If your face tends to look long, cutting straight bangs across the brow line can break up the length by creating the illusion of width.
Celebrities That Rocked The Look: Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, Cameron Diaz, Anne Hathaway and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Best Suited For: While you don’t need to worry about face shape, you should consider hair texture when it comes to bangs. Avoid bangs if you have curly hair. And if you do get bangs, learn how to blow-dry them properly. They’re best to hide high/big foreheads and a widow’s peak.
Besides your hair type and features, remember that the basic requirement before getting a haircut is to know you face shape-round, oval, square, heart, oblong or diamond-and then proceed accordingly.
