The perfect haircut is more than just a few snips! Before booking a salon appointment, determine your face shape so you’ll know exactly what to ask for. You can do this at home by breaking out a ruler and measuring the widths of your brow, cheekbones and jawline, and the length of your face from forehead to chin.
If you have an oval face, the widths of your brow, cheekbones and jaw are almost equal, but if yours is round, your face is nearly as wide as it is long, with your forehead and jaw curving at the corners. People with heart-shaped faces have a wide brow and narrow jaw, but if the length and width of your face is equal, you have a square. We put together a list of our favorite hairstyles every shape-click through to get inspired!
SLEEK, LOW BUN
A strong center part and tons of shine spray make a low chignon instantly classic (add smoky eyes and it’s ridiculously sexy, too). To get this pretty loop, draw a center part and clip aside a one-inch chunk of hair from each side of the hairline. Gather the rest in a low ponytail at the nape and roll (rather than twist) it up toward the base, pinning it against the head. Then pull each of the front pieces back around the loop, pinning them into place. Finish with a generous dose of glossy shine spray
