Want to choose a haircut that matches your face perfectly? First, you will want to determine your face shape. To do this, pull your hair back and trace your reflection in the mirror with lipstick. Then, assess the shape in accordance to the following:
• If your reflection's round, grow out your locks into a long, sleek style that's angled around the face (try chunky bangs that you can sweep to the side).
• If you've got a squarish face, pick a shoulder-skimming style with loose layers. Side swept bangs around your face add wisps, emphasizing your eyes and cheekbones.
• If your face is heart shaped, go with a "below the chin" style with an angled front and tapered ends. If you want to add bangs, wear them long and brushed to the side.
• For an oval shaped face, try a jagged chin cut with pieced layers or a mid-length cut with brow brimming bangs.
Use what you have, baby, and emphasize your face's finer features.
