We are often tempted to get haircuts and try various hairstyles as the season or trend changes. Our hairstyle tells a lot about our personality and hence it should be done after a lot of consideration. Not all the haircuts or style goes best with every face shape so you must choose what best suits your facial features and bone structure. Figure out what shape does your face belongs to and then pick a hairstyle accordingly to avoid the dreadful dream of getting it wrong.

If you have a chiseled jawline with a long chin and broad forehead then your face structure falls in the heart shape category. People with heart-shaped faces have narrow chin areas, so while choosing the hairstyle you need to focus on avoid giving too much attention to your chin as it will look more tapered instead try highlighting your forehead. Go for hairstyles that are medium to shoulder length and then add layers in front, this looks best with faces that have sharp facial bones.  


Oval Face Shape

Unlike heart shape, people with oval face shape have a curvy chin area and have slightly broader forehead area. But it is overall a balanced and symmetrical face shape that can look great with most hairstyles. You have an ocean of options to choose from like long layers, shoulder-length style with waves, fringes, side wept pixies. If you are looking for a statement look then you can also opt for short crop or long bob haircuts with layers. You can style them in wavy or curl styles that will give you a subtle yet chic look.
