ZALA Quiz: Which Hairstyle Suits Your Face Shape?
It's not that easy to find a hairstyle that perfectly complements your face, but when you do, it can be a whole world of difference. Having one that suits you well can instantly enhance your beauty and make you stand out even more.
Don't know where to start? In this article, you'll find out which hairstyle suits your face shape just by answering some questions!
Hairstyles For Round Face Shape
You have a round face shape if you answer yes to most, if not all, of these questions:
- Does your face fit inside a circle?
- Is the length and width of your face equal?
Short hairstyles are very flattering for those with round faces. If you're feeling brave, you can go for a pixie cut. It's an easy way to add some texture to your head, which can make your face look more elongated than it actually is.
A deep side part can add much-needed angles to round face shapes, all while maintaining a soft look.
High ponytails do a great job at making your face look much longer, which is why it should be avoided by those with long face shapes. If you have a round face shape though, you'll find that a high ponytail could be really flattering for you.
Hairstyles For Oval Face Shape
You have an oval face shape if you answer yes to most, if not all, of these questions:
- Is your face longer than it is wide?
- Is your jaw slightly narrower than your forehead?
Side-swept bangs can frame your face, making it look a lot more balanced. Don't go for heavy bangs, as this can make your face look even shorter.
This is a short hairstyle that helps avoid elongate your face, which is a no-no for oval-shaped faces.
Layered Shoulder-Length Hair
It can be a bit hard to make your hair look voluminous when you've got an oval-shaped face, but it can be done with the use of layers that reach your shoulders. Also, haircuts that are just one length can make your face look strangely long, which is another thing to avoid when your face shape is oval.
Hairstyles For Square Face Shape
You have a square face shape if you answer yes to most, if not all, of these questions:
- Are your forehead, cheeks, and jaw roughly the same width?
- Do you have a strong or angled jawline?
Wispy bangs can soften your look by adding subtle, diagonal lines to your face. This can be very helpful since square faces tend to look stronger than other face shapes.
If you'd much rather accentuate your square face though, it might be best to opt for short bangs that end right at your cheekbone. This highlights your strong features and draws attention to them.
Hairstyles For Heart Face Shape
You have a heart face shape if you answer yes to most, if not all, of these questions:
- Is your hairline the widest part of your face?
- Do you have prominent cheeks?
- Is your chin area quite narrow?
Loose Waves With Bangs
This is for heart-shaped faces that prefer to keep their hair longer. Loose waves with bangs can help balance things out by removing the attention from the forehead area and adding wideness around the lower part of your face. Don't make your bangs too short though, as short bangs can make your chin look even narrower.
Shoulder-Length Long Bob
People with a heart-shaped face tend to have smaller jawlines, so it's helpful to add some 'width' in that area to balance things out. This can be done easily with a long bob that ends right at the shoulder, as it can give the appearance of a wider jawline.
Hairstyles For Long Face Shape
You have a long face shape if you answer yes to most, if not all, of these questions:
- Is the length of your face longer than the width?
- Do your jaw and your forehead have roughly the same width?
Curly hair is a great look for those with a long face, since curls can make your face appear wider than it actually is. Loose curls look especially fabulous on long faces, so make sure to get yours as loose and as big as you can.
Just like loose curls, waves, especially those big, beachy ones, can make long faces more balanced. Curl your hair a bit closer to the roots in order to achieve the perfect style of waves.
