You know what they say: great hair, don’t care. Like great wine, Adelaide has no shortage of amazing hair salons. Forget a good hair day, talk about a good hair month. Before you decide whether to lop it off or lob it up, it is important to determine your face shape and the weight of your hair. You want to accentuate your features and not hide them.
If your face is heart shaped:
Draw attention to your eyes with side-swept bangs. This can help to balance out the wider forehead. A pixie cut will make you look like you have built-in cheekbones. If you want to keep it long, keep the hair textured with long layers.
If your face is round:
You want to pick hairstyles to create an illusion of length. Try a long bob. Hair that hits your shoulder or collarbone will counterbalance the roundness and give your face structure.
If your face is square:
Waves and curls can soften the angles of your face. Avoid blunt bangs and go for brow-grazing, side sweeping fringe. If you want to keep it short and sweet, go for something textured. This will help balance out your jaw line. If you are going long, go for just over shoulder-length hair because it will highlight your amazing cheekbones.
If your face is oval-shaped:
This is one of the most versatile face shapes. Most things will suit you! Go for layers near your cheekbones, lips or chin that will highlight your features. A fringe can help create width and balance. Tip: If you are going short, avoid spiky hair cuts. This can add length to your hair. Avoid super long hair as well because it can make oval face appear longer.
