Heart-Shaped: Long Bob with Layers
Noble says, “You're in luck: most cuts and styles look good on this face shape. The only thing you want to watch out for is bangs. If you have a low hairline then bangs may not be the best for you.” Lucky you, indeed! Victoria Beckham’s latest cut is the perfect option for spring. As Noble says, “By removing more weight in the hair with more aggressive layering, it creates a lot more movement, allowing the style to have a more playful feel without losing that length.”
Round: Asymmetrical Cuts
According to Noble, these face shapes should “stay away from round cuts that are over layered in the front. This will only make your face appear rounder.” Instead, try an asymmetrical cut like Kirsten Dunst’s. Chastain says, “Generally, if the back of hair is cut slightly shorter than front, it will look more flattering. That will give height at the crown and pull up cheekbones. An off-center part and heavy side-swept bangs will also define the face and carve out cheekbones.”
Long: Side-Swept Bangs
Chastain advises to stay away from center parts, which can emphasize the length of your face. Instead, “Try long bangs, lip length, and a steep side part. It will cut inches off your forehead and pull the chin up a little more. Even if you don’t have bangs, pulling hair to the side will create the same bang effect.” Jennifer Garner’s long side-swept bangs perfectly accentuate her great cheekbones while shortening her face.
