Styles for your face shape

Styles for Your Face Shape

Choosing a hairstyle isn’t just about following the latest fashion trends. You need to find a style that suits the shape of your face, too. Artizan at George Street Townhouse in Bath, has an experienced styling team who will provide professional, honest advice to help you decide on the perfect hairdo for you.

If You Have a Heart face

Widen the chin and lengthen your face…

Short Hair on a Heart Face

Choose a top-heavy haircut to add height and length and to balance out your heart-shaped features. A fringe will shorten your face so is best avoided!

Mid-length Hair on a Heart Face

It’s fine to choose a hairstyle that adds height and volume, but it’s best to avoid a cut that adds width. Long, side-swept fringes are good for creating length but, beware, blunt fringes will draw attention to your forehead.

Long Hair on a Heart Face

A middle parting will divide your face in two. Hair layered just below the chin will draw the eye downwards. It’s advisable to avoid curly, wavy hairstyles as they will add width to your face.

If You Have a Long face

Softening angles…

Short Hair on a Long Face

You can halve the apparent length of your face by adding heavier, rounded top layers and a fringe. It’s best to avoid styles that add height at the crown as these tend to highlight oblong face shapes.

Mid-length Hair on a Long Face

You can halve the apparent length of your face by adding heavier, rounded top layers and a fringe. It’s best to avoid styles that add height at the crown as these tend to highlight oblong face shapes.

If you prefer a longer, straighter hairstyle, opt for long layers cut at nose, chin and shoulder length.

If You Have an Oval Face

Lucky you, the choices are endless!

Short Hair on an Oval Face

You can have fun with striking, sharp haircuts or choose softer layered styles that frame your face.

Mid-length Hair on an Oval Face

It’s best to wear your hair off your face to avoid it overwhelming your features. The most flattering hairstyles for you are rounded cheek-to-chin-length bobs.

Your hair will look fabulous cut in a soft, choppy style. To really flatter your features, wear it just below your shoulders and swept into a side parting. You may want to avoid very long lengths as they may overwhelm your face.

If You Have a Round Face

Disguise the outline of your face…

Short Hair on a Round Face

Volume at the crown will slim your face and lengthen those features. Avoiding onroundness. Wear your hair behind the earse-length, blunt cuts and curls will lessen roundness.

Mid-length Hair on a Round Face

Avoid fringed bobs and heavy layers around the chin to lessen length, width and roundness. Wear your hair behind the ears for a slimmer face.

Long Hair on a Round Face

Wear longer styles and avoid curls to deflect attention from the width of your face. Be warned though, a middle parting, while dividing the face in two, can be difficult to wear.

If You Have a Square Face

Softening angles……

Short Hair on a Square Face

As well as adding texture, choppy, layered ends will minimise any sharp angles around the jawline. By contrast, short, tapered styles will highlight your face shape.

Mid-length Hair on a Square Face

If you want to soften the squareness of your face, avoid blunt-cut fringes and one-length, chin-length bobs. Subtle layers, waves and rounded cuts will help to soften a square face.

Long Hair on a Square Face

To draw attention away from angular features, frame the face with long, smooth layers or dishevelled waves that start at the jawline.
