Which Hairstyle Suits All Face Shapes? 

If there's a style to suit all faces, we haven't discovered it yet! However, our hair specialists in our Eastbourne hair salon can adapt most hairstyles to suit your face shape, by adding layers, finding your perfect fringe or adapting a short hairstyle to suit you perfectly.

Come and visit us and we can help you find the perfect hairstyle for your face shape, or create a hairstyle you love that will leave you looking and feeling fabulous. 

Hairstyles For Round Faces

Round face shapes tend to have similar width and length as well as prominent, rounded cheeks. Add definition and shape with long layers, or edgy pixie cuts for the most flattering hairstyles. Avoid full curls, long cuts with no layers and chin length hairstyles.

Hairstyles For Rectangular Faces

If you have a rectangle shaped face avoid straight, long hairstyles without layers or short, blunt fringes. Go for hair styles with lots of layers, cut to your cheekbones. Soft cut fringes or trendy curtain fringes are most suited to rectangular faces and draw the eye from the bottom half of the face. 

Hairstyles For Triangle Shaped Faces

As a triangle shaped face is traditionally wider at the jawline than at the forehead, we would flattering pixie cuts and side swept fringes, whilst bob haircuts should be avoided as they can make your jawline look wider. 

Hairstyles For Oval Shaped Faces

Oval faces are well balanced and can suit a wide range of hairstyles, although we think they look great with shorter hairstyles. Longer hairstyles with minimal layers or soft waves can highlight your features and bring out your cheekbones, whilst a central parting will help to maintain the balance of your oval shaped face.

Hairstyles For Diamond Shaped Faces

If you have a diamond shaped face with prominent cheekbones, we would advise face softening layered, wavy hairstyles with a side parting. A chin length bob will balance out a diamond shaped face or, if you often wear your hair up, a pulled back ponytail will soften your look and enhance your cheekbones.

Hairstyles For Square Shaped Faces

As square-shaped face shapes usually feature a broad forehead, a strong jawline and wide cheekbones, a hair cut which softens your features is essential to compliment your bone structure. Choose longer hairstyles with layers and side swept fringes to draw away from your jawline and towards your cheekbones. 

Hairstyles For Heart Shaped Faces

If you have a heart-shaped face, you should choose a hairstyle which balances out the lower portion of your face. A side-parted pixie cut with textured ends can look fantastic on a heart shaped face, as can a longer bob haircut, or a medium length wavy hairstyle, which will add fullness around your jaw.
