Choosing The Right Hairstyle And Glasses For Your Face Shape

THE TRIANGULAR FACE

Triangle face shapeInverted triangle face shapeThis could either be a triangular shape with a dominant jaw line that narrows at the cheekbones and temples or a inverted triangle with the fullness at the forehead with narrower chin. For the triangular face choose styles that are fuller at the temples and taper at the jaw area. Lots of layers or a choppy cut will help. This style will help to balance your prominent jaw. With the inverted triangular shape the reverse is true. Keep longer layers with the weight near your chin and neck to balance your narrow chin.

Hair Length: Shorter hair works best with the triangular face to help balance the prominent jaw line. If wearing long hair, make sure it’s pulled back at the nape. For the inverted triangle face, keep the lengths mid to long but maintain layers and volume just below the chin.

Glasses: Use top heavy frames for the triangular face and bottom heavy ones for the inverted triangle. You want to draw attention away from your prominent feature.

THE HEART-SHAPED FACE

Heart shape faceThis face will be widest at the hairline and temples and narrows to a small chin and you will often have a widow’s peak.Chin length styles will look great on you as they create fullness where you need it creating balance. Stick with wispy bangs and off center parts while keeping layers forward towards your face. If you are lucky enough to have dramatic high cheekbones, keep nape length layers to add weight and balance your features.

Hair Length: Chin length hair will look great on you but if  you want longer hair, then cut in chin length layers. Avoid short styles, height at the crown or severe looks because they accentuate the upper face!

Glasses: Choose frames with low temples and light colored rims. You could also try frames that are bottom heavy to balance your face.

With these tips it should be easy to pick your new hairstyle or sunglasses for the summer. Don’t feel closed in by your face shape, remember, as long as you do not draw attention to your prominent features we are all open to different lengths and styles so have fun with your choices!

I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to help others achieve their dreams too. My three passions are hair, art and entrepreneurship and I love to be able to bring my unique view on hair growth and successful hair journeys to our readers. I am an eternal optimist and workaholic. In addition to BHI I have founded quite a few other websites and businesses including Elongtress Hair Vitamins and Urban Gyal which all fall under the umbrella of my company Coils Media Ltd.
