Are You A Match For Your Hair? - credits to superlita (taken from 101 hairstyle magazine) OVAL FACE: ( Length equal to one and a half times width. )
An oval shaped face is the most desired for its perfect balance. Celebs that bear oval dimensions include Charlize Theron, Jewel, Uma Thurman and Julia Roberts. Ovals can wear an and look striking whether it's a shoulder-length cut with straight layers or a long, full curly look. Ovals look best with their hair pulled back. Ponytails look appealing on ovals for daytime and buns look classic at night. Wearing hair off your forehead gives you great profile symmetry, while bangs spotlight the upper part of the face like eyes and cheekbones. You've got a lot to choose from, ovals. Experiment and have fun!

ROUND FACE: ( Your face is as wide as it is long. This may vary a little, but generally the measure is close. )

If you have a round shape, you share the spotlight with celeb Dunst, Kate Winslet, and Drew Barrymore. This type of circular form looks good in cuts that narrow the face. If you want to go for a short-haired look, wear a side part or an off center part to contrast the circular form of the face. Beware of straight bangs which shorten a face, but you can sport curly, loose bangs to the texture. Rounds are flattered by hair below the chin or shoulder length and look best in long straight hair styled close to the face. Don't be afraid of height. A little height to the top adds a lot to that gorgeous round face!

OBLONG FACE: ( Longer than it is wide. )

Oblong faces are known for their long, narrow shape, which accentuates a sharp appearing chin. They look their best in hairstyles and cuts that compliment the top half of the face; filling out features liked the ears, cheekbones, eyes and sides of the face. Oblongs should stick to cuts that fall two inches above the shoulders, which explains why stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker look more stunning with updos than long, straight hair. Add a wavy look for an overall fullness. Stay away from the middle parts, which bring out the chin. Go for a side part that droops low and drapes your hair across your forehead, which adds width to the face. Find a pretty barrette to hold the look together and knock em' out!

DIAMOND FACE: ( Widest at cheekbones, narrow forehead and jaw line of approximately equal widths. )

A round cut is ideal for diamonds. These shapes look best in the fullest styles, such as a graduated short bob, which drapes the chin or long, voluminous waves. ( Think Elizabeth Hurley ). Loose, wide bangs and wisps around the chin area are ideal for diamond faces, adding more fullness to the lengthy top half of the face.

HEART FACE: ( Narrow at jaw line, wide at cheekbones/and or forehead. )

The best style for heart shapes are chin-length or longer. Think chin-length bob! Side-parted hairstyles compliment the forehead. You may also want to try swept-forward layers around the upper face with wispy bangs. This creates a balanced look by giving fullness where you need it. You can wear even shorter styles, however if you are a dramatic heart shape you need to leave weight in the back nape area. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more narrowing chin. As a general rule, avoid short, full styles that emphasize the upper face. Height at the crown and severe, slicked back looks won't work either. Just remember if you have a dramatic heart shape face like celebs Jennifer Love Hewitt, Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Judd and Juliette Binoche, you have great cheekbones to emphasize!

SQUARE FACE: ( Your face is about as wide as it is long. )

Holly Marie Combs, Demi Moore and Sandra Bullock are all pretty square facially, that is/ Since square faces have equal width length, it is important to choose a hairstyle that adds a fullness to the firm angled line of the jaw and brow. A middle part will magnify the square shape, so start with a side part, which adds curve and roundness. Just make sure to avoid straight bangs. Instead, wear bangs that are wisped and fringed, which softens the face. Now that you have the forehead wisps, thin out your jaw line. Square faces look best with hair curled under slightly below the chin. Add a little curl to your hair for some extra richness. Don't be afraid to cut some wisps close to your cheeks for more softness and appeal.

Thank you so much for starting this thread. I need a new hairstyle.

I have hair that reached my chest. The last time I cut it was in May so it grew out and got really ugly. I have wavy hair and it's quite frizzy but I can tame it with serums and stuff so it's not biggie.

I'm looking for a funky hair but still pleasantable. No dyes. No perms.

Help?

I want to keep my side bangs(grew out) and my hair to my waist. I want it to be tieable(?) cause I'm not allowed to let down my hair in school.

Thanks!

That's almost exactly how my hair is. You should probably avoid this cut if your hair is very flat. It will add body to the crown of your head cause of the short layers but everything else would be very thin and wouldn't look so good.
