Is there a perfect hair cut for everyone? Given your investment in your hair–styling, straightening, coloring–it seems that you should be able to start with a haircut that is most flattering. YOU CAN. Here’s what you need to know.
Face Shape Really Does Matter
Everyone is different. Unless you’re an oval, who can wear practically any cut, there will be haircuts that look best on your face shape, and a few that aren’t flattering at all. You want to play down your weakest features and highlight your best. For example:
- If you have a long face, avoid straight long hair in favor of a shorter or layered cut.
- Round faces, on the other hand, want to avoid short curls and go for a longer straight cut.
- If you have a square face, you’ll want to play down your strong, angular jaw with texture. Curls or short choppy layers will work.
- Bangs are a great way to draw attention from the chin of a heart-shaped face.
Hair Texture is as Important as Face Shape
Fine hair needs volume. Blunt cuts are good for creating thickness.
Adding layers to thick hair will remove the heaviness from the bottom. Soft layers that blend into the hair are best for creating natural movement.
Curly and wavy hair both like medium to long long layers. The layers will allow for a lighter look and feel to the hair.
Communication is Key to A Perfect Cut
Work with your stylist. Pictures are a great way to help tell your stylist what you want because they are a clue to what you have in mind for your look. You may not find the entire look in one picture. You may like the length of one picture, the bangs of another, or the choppiness of yet another. Show your stylist what you like about different looks to customize the perfect look for you. Take advantage of your stylist’s expertise and experience and be open to their advice.
Prepare for styling your new cut at home. Ask for styling advice. A cut only looks as good as how it’s styled. As your stylist finishes your hair, ask detailed questions so you can get the salon-quality style at home. You may need to upgrade your styling products to get the effect needed for your new cut.
