The perfect haircut is more than just a few snips! Before booking a salon appointment, determine your face shape so you’ll know exactly what to ask for.

Because hairstyles are predominately about shape and geometry. It’s all about putting the perfect frame around a person’s face to balance and bring perspective to the overall shape.

The shape must:

  • Minimize non-pleasing attributes.
  • Promote and compliment positive ones.

That’s why we have some tips how to find the best haircut that will fit your face shape.


If your face is round and you have straight hair, keep the shoulder length haircut because it will accelerate your cheekbones. This also applies for wavy or curly hair, but their shoulder length haircut should be layered so to get pyramid shape and contrast the roundness. Also, the structure of the bones will be emphasized this way.


If you have this type of face shape and straight hair, don’t be afraid of trying new hairstyles. You should try the popular pixie haircut. Another good haircut is multi-layered bob. For wavy or curly hair the best haircut is the layered one.


An angular bob with short, chin-hugging layers. Springy curls need more weight to keep them from getting pouffy, so go an inch or two longer.

Triangular Face Shape

Due to its narrow forehead and wide jawline, a triangular face requires the opposite treatment of a heart shape.

Square face shape

Square face shapes are very strong, angular face shapes.  They project an appearance of strength and power. Some of the most famous and memorable people in history have this type of face shape.

It is also said that women with square face shapes age well and also look great in photographs.  So, if this is your face shape – lucky you!
