Choosing The Right Hairstyle And Glasses For Your Face Shape

Are you in the market for a new hairstyle or glasses? Before you even consider changing anything you should figure out the shape of your face and what styles or glasses shapes will compliment you.

THE ROUND FACE

Round face shapeThis face is  full with a rounded hairline and chin area. The area around the cheeks will be the widest point. If your face is round, your purpose should be to try to lengthen it. You can achieve this by adding height and fullness at the crown and layering will also help massively with this. An off centre part is best with the rest of the hair staying close to the side of the head to avoid adding even more fullness.

Hair Length: If you wear a shorter cut hair should be swept back but a longer cut worn the same way will also work. Avoid hair that’s chin length with rounded lines, like bobs. This just makes your head appear rounder! Also avoid straight blunt bangs and short crops. A centre part will tend to accentuate the roundness of your face so steer clear!

Glasses: Choose rectangular frames as they will contrast the round face, making it appear thinner and longer. If your eyes are close-set, choose clear bridges as they make eyes appear further apart. Colored temples are ok too.

THE SQUARE FACE

Square face shapeThis face shape has a strong, square jaw line and a square hairline too. If you have a square face your goal is to soften it. Hair with a multitude of waves and curls will go a long way to achieving this. Dead straight hair is not a good idea but layers and wispy bangs will be fine. Off centre parts and height at the crown will help to elongate the face adding to the softness.

Hair Length: Short to medium length hair works best for this shape face. Make sure that your cut ends just above or a slightly below your chin, a style that ends directly at chin length will emphasize your square jaw. Avoid centre parts like the plague!
