When choosing any hair design it is very important to have in consideration many aspects, like face shape, head shape, body type, hair type, size of the forehead, nose, jaw, ears, etc.
Here are some tips.
- Don’t cut bangs to the brow level when you have a small forehead or cow licks. It’s possible to do it but you need to know how to do it right. You may have to compromise some aspects of the hair style. People with a large forehead and oblong face shape are good candidates for bangs. If you have a wide face shape, add volume to the top and reduce volume on the sides. You can also keep the hair length below the chin line, partially covering the the side of the face, which will create the illusion of a narrower face. When your nose is large, create volume to the bangs, avoid parting in the middle and add volume to the neck area to help balance your features.
- Don’t cut your hair too short if your face and body are round. This will make you look even wider and heavier. Having the hair long creates vertical lines and the illusion of being slimmer.
Don’t always use hot styling tools.
- While straightening or curling the hair in many cases makes you look radiant and beautiful, the constant use of a flat iron and curling iron will literally fry your hair. It’s very easy to get addicted to them because of the the fast results of the temporally smoothness and shine. I can tell right away when my clients are using hot tools too often (curling iron, flat iron,etc). The hair is extremely dry and full of split ends.
- If you are a mature person, keep in mind that straight, sleek hair will highlight imperfections in the face, like wrinkles. In this case I recommend soft curls or loose layers around your face, to soften and draw attention away from negative aspects.
