ROUND FACE. A round face looks good with a mixture of layers and texture. Keeping the length below the chin and adding a side swept bang will make a round face look slimmer.
LONG FACE. Long straight hair is not ideal for a long face shape because it drags the face down. However, you can soften this long shape by adding waves or curls. Consider a long bob at shoulder length to flatter a long face.
SQUARE FACE. Strong angular jawlines are traits of a square face.Texture and curls will soften a square jawline. Square faces should avoid chin length bobs and blunt heavy bangs as they will accentuate a strong jawline.
OVAL FACE. An oval face shape is the most versatile of them all. Jessica Alba and Beyonce share an oval face shape. Long layers, short choppy bobs, and pixies are all great haircuts for this face shape. Straight or curly hair in varying lengths work well with an oval face.
HEART SHAPE. Reese Witherspoon first comes to mind when I think of a heart shaped face. She always has gorgeous hairstyles that compliment her heart shape face. Long side swept bangs and soft waves below the chin will add width to the bottom of a heart shaped face.
