Style shaper: How to match your haircut to your face shape

How to match your haircut to your face shape

Here’s how to match your haircut to your face shape

While it can be tempting to test run whatever hairstyle is trending at the mo, take a sec to think twice: “Will blunt bangs really work for me?” or “could I totes rock a pixie crop and therefore enhance my insane jawline?” Decisions, decisions.

Here’s the solution: work with what you’ve got and choose a style that highlights your best assets and downplays your not-so-loved features. Lord knows I wish more women could have completed this simple exercise in the 80s perm days!

Below, we’ve made it easy for you to match the perfect hairstyle with your face shape.

Find your best style now and don’t look back!

hey DDG - i have an oval face but im quite petite and feel as though long hair swallows me up! at the same time i have a long-ish nose and want to accentuate my eyes. tips for a haircut??


Such a fantastic article. I've been told I can look like Jennifer so I think I have the right hair to suit my face. Its just long and boring LOL. I must say I do love fringes.


Wish hairdressers would save us from ourselves sometimes 😉


I have a heart shaped face but I'm growing my hair long. The article wrote I shouldn't have my hair too long though.


i adore side swept fringes and choppy bobs.


If you like it, then it is perfect!


I guess I should try bangs
