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!

    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.

    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.
