Hairstyles-choose according to the shape of your face

A hairstyle helps to accentuate or draw away certain facial characteristics. There are a whole lot of ways to style our hair depending on your face structure. If you like your hair styled long, there are long frizzy hair styles, long curly hair styles, long layered hair styles, long braided hairstyles, etc.
The following are tips on styles that can make the most of your particular features:
For a face too round, one can put a side part in the hair. This will slim and lengthen a face that’s too round.
* For thin face, curls or fullness at the sides will widen a long, thin face.
* For a large nose, a full hairstyle or upswept crown makes the nose less noticeable. For sharp, angular features, a wavy or curly hairstyle will soften a chiseled cheekbone, nose or jaw..
* A broad forehead can be concealed with a fringe or a flick and a square jaw line can be softened with a hairstyle which frames the face.
* For a high forehead, a horizontal line of full bangs can cover the forehead, balancing the face.
* For a strong or square chin, a short cut with soft curls or fullness at the crown, takes attention away from the chin.
* A top-knot adds height to a small face or short body while a perfectly oval, well-chiseled face can be shown off with a severe hairstyle, drawn away from the face.
* Women with small faces look good with shoulder length hair, rather than very short hair.
* Older women should opt for a ‘softer’ hairstyle, in which the hair is not drawn away from the face (as it emphasizes the wrinkles and age lines) but which frames the face.
* If you have a swan-like beautiful neck, you can sweep your hair into a high top knot or a French bun and draw attention to your neck.
* Girls and women using spectacles should not have a “severe” hairstyle, a softer one looks more attractive.

    A great option for round faces are long layers. Keep hair longer than the chin and ask for long layers cut into hair.
