How do I Choose the Right Hair Style for Me?

A hair cut or style can transform your entire look. If you’re bored of the same features and want to highlight your eyes, or your cheekbones, a simple hair cut can do the trick. However, you need to pick the right hair styles, or you might end up with something that doesn’t flatter your look. Most of the time, your hair stylist should be able to advice you on the right style for your face.

At Nicola Smith Hairdressing, we always urge our clients to pick a cut and style that flatters their features, instead of things that look good on others. For example, the pixie cut might look great on your favorite actress, but it might not flatter you. So how can you pick the right hair style?

Consider the Shape of your Face

You always need to consider the shape of your face. We can broadly classify the shapes into round, heart, square, and oval. You need to consider your facial features carefully to ensure that you have the right shape. This will help you determine the right hair trends for your face. Consider the following points:

  • Layers and curls usually flatter round faces. You can try layered bobs with fringe bangs. It’s better to have moderate length hair and let it fall to your shoulders.
  • Straight and sleek cuts look good on square or wide faces. You can try an angled bob or some textured layers. A severe and sleek ponytail is a good look for you if you have a square face.
  • Oval faces can carry many hair styles so you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment. If you have an oval face, you should consider which feature you want to highlight the most and pick a style accordingly. For example, if you want to highlight your eyes, choose brow-length bangs that emphasize the eyes.
  • A heart shaped face needs balance so you can try a swept-back up-do with some volume on the top. This will balance out the wide forehead and emphasize on your cheekbones.

If you’re still not sure, you should consult a hair stylist. They have a good understanding of your features and will recommend the right hair styles.
