How to: Find Your Best Hairstyle (Ever!)

No matter how superficial it may sound, girls, let’s just admit it: One of the beauty hurdles we obsess over is trying to find that perfect haircut that make us look – and feel – fantastic! And really, hair makes such a big difference to transform your look, so why wouldn’t you want to get it right? Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks to help us when we have no idea where to look… and get this – it all boils down to our face shape.

How to find your best hairstyle

Once we have figured out what our face shape is, it is so much easier to find out what cuts and styles can flatter our face, making our search much less traumatic (don’t get me started on all the ‘trial and error’ I had to go through to find a cut that looked decent on me!).

How To Find Your Face Shape

Here’s a short exercise that has been used since… well, ever, to determine your face shape. To start, grab yourself a tube of lipstick and a mirror. Facing the mirror, trace the outline of your face with the lipstick on the mirror. Then step back and examine the shape you have drawn. It is an oval? Is it a little square? It is heart-shaped? Is it round? Once you’ve figured out the shape, you’ve gotten your face shape. Easy, hey?

Tips to Remember for Your Face Shape

Here are some tips I’ve gathered through research on what to look for in a haircut concerning your face shape. Remember, at the end of the day, do whatever the heck you want, it’s your hair! But if you really want a style that is suited to your face shape, follow these guidelines and play around with your options:

  • Round: Keep hair flat on the sides – rounded haircuts, such as bobs and curly, short hairstyles, will only make your face look rounder. The aim here is to elongate.
  • Long: Focus on getting volume with hairstyles that have width: bobs, wavy and curly hair, and long bangs all look great with long face shapes. Avoid too long and too straight cuts as it may drag your face down.
  • Oval: Lucky you! Any style suits you. Experiment and see what you like best.
  • Heart: Long and wavy hairstyles look great with this style, which is defined by having a wide forehead and a narrow chin. Also, try to avoid short layers. Side-swept bangs also look great (as you can tell by Reese, above).
  • Square: To soften a square face, opt for softer styles such as wispy bangs, layers and curls. Avoid chin-length cuts.

Bangs/Fringes – The Best Bangs for Your Face shape

If you want bangs and don’t know what will suit your face shape, check out my post The Best Type of Bangs for Your Face Shape.

The Universal Cut

I remember reading in Allure Magazine a few years back that the ‘universal’ cut is shoulder-length hair with slight layers and a long side swept fringe. This, according to them, flatters every face shape, hair type and age. Makes sense, though – the cut is simple and sophisticated; I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t suit it. So if you’re stuck on what to do, perhaps that is an option to try for now.

Try It Out!

Once you know what to avoid and what might suit you, it’s time to try it out. Playing around with your style first by photo manipulation is also great if you still want to play a bit safe before taking the plunge. So if you are handy at Photoshop, get to work! If not, there are plenty of sites that you can upload a photo of yourself and ‘try on’ different styles. InStyle Magazine’s Hollywood Hair Virtual Makeover is a great site I’d recommend. Check out this screencap of me playing around with red hair… Let’s just say that as much as I love red hair, it is not my color. Yikes.

And if you’re still unsure on what will suit your face shape, my only advice is to bite the bullet and do it. Trial and error, you know the drill. If it turns out horrid, it’ll grow back… it’s only hair, right?

How I Found ‘It’

Growing up, my Mom would always give me bob haircuts because she thought that’s what you should give girls with long faces. (And yes, bobs are recommended for those with long face shapes, but like I said, you need to virtually try out what they recommend, too – it’s different for everyone!)

Anyway, when I was old enough to have a say with my hair, I wanted anything but short hair – my kind of rebellion, I guess. So all my life I thought that long hair was the way to go. And even though I went through many experiences with my hair, I still always went back to long, straight hair. But let’s be honest – it was doing nothing for me. For someone with a long face, it being so straight and long only made my face look… well, longer.

Renee Lorentzen

So recently, as you all know, I took the plunge and cut half my hair off. Some remains of my awful digital hair perm were still visible, so what I ended up with was slightly-past-shoulder-length, slightly wavy hair. And I was in love. The length (and very slight layers) gave my thin hair the volume it needed, and the waves added width to my face, and overall, I don’t know why I haven’t done it sooner. I have found ‘it’, baby! I used to think shoulder length was so boring (especially on me), but now it’s the length I will stick with. So my advice to you is just to go for it – you might find that ‘perfect’ cut!

Tell me, friends – what face shape do you have? Have you found your perfect haircut that suits your face shape? What kind of crazy hair experiences have you had in the past in search for the perfect cut?

    I spent years not only trying to find my “perfect” hairstyle, but it also took me years to finally embrace my naturally wavy/curly hair. Growing up I’ve always idolised straight hair- really straight hair, so I hated my hair with a passion and couldn’t wait to get it straightened. I also had very short hair, and it made me look like a boy :P
    It was a few years back where I got tired of the highly noticeable regrowth I get with straight hair, and decided to just fudge it and get my hair permed (To give it more definition), so that the regrowth won’t look noticeable. Though I do miss having straight hair, I find that curly/wavy hair suits me and my hairdresser (I’ve been with her for almost 4 years now!) also suggested that it’s the best for my face shape (It’s long). She said that straight hair and bangs are out of the question for me.
    Sorry for the long comment lol!

    • Renee January 5, 2011, 12:44 am

      I love your long comment, don’t ever apologize! :) I am happy to hear you have embraced your natural texture… wavy does look great on long face shapes!

      • Stephanie/Yukaeshi January 9, 2011, 11:40 pm

        Thank you! I was so carried away typing I didn’t realise it was long :P
        It actually does :) I can’t carry bangs/fringes because of the waviness though- and I do miss the ease of having straight hair since it’s just wash and go and wake up and go, as wavy/curly hair needs more styling and all, but it’s pretty well worth it thus far.

  • Ri January 3, 2011, 2:03 am

    I have a square-ish face shape so whenever I felt like going for a haircut, I would research on styles that would look good on my face shape (I use the Hollywood Hair Virtual Makeover too!! It’s super fun haha) and somehow end up wanting styles that look good on other face shapes. Unfortunately that never stopped me and I’d go cut it anyway! Come to think of it, I will worry a lot abt how my hair will affect me but I have these moments when I get so sick of my current hairsyle that I will just want to do something, ANYTHING about it and the outcome just doesn’t matter. Haha! I always say that I want to shave bald a la Natalie Portman one day but yea, don’t think I will ever have the guts to nor can I pull it off! :P Luckily for me, I’ve never been too drastic so I can live by the whole “oh it will grow out” principle.

    But the whole not-too-drastic thing also meant that well, my usual hairstyles were getting old and overused. So recently, I went to a salon and told the hairdresser to “do whatever you want” (before meekly adding “uhh just not too short/weird k” haha) and I really got lucky coz I love my hairstyle now! It’s sort of an above-shoulder blunt cut which somehow works for me. So, yay! :)

    • Renee January 5, 2011, 12:48 am

      Aw, so happy to hear that. Haha, “do whatever you want”, a hairdresser’s dream come true! Luckily she didn’t decide on the Natalie Portman look you were thinking of :-P

  • Sylvie January 3, 2011, 2:34 am

    I have a truly round face. Ive always wanted hairstyles that couldnt go worse with the shape of my face… and I suffered long for it :) Although it has been much more complicated to find the ideal hairstylist. So I started experimenting with cutting my own hair and it wasn’t that bad actually. I got my first ever fringe myself – slightly misshaped and cropped, but it did go well with my at that time art academy student image :) I colored it in various shades… had a perm at some point to get rid of my stubbornly straight hair…. and I just lost the breaks at some point and started experimenting more and more…. and ended up with a boyish do. The worst version of it. After graduation, I finally found the stylist that I liked and we’ve been working at mainting my serious-professional look ever since. I have still kept partial asymetric bangs – I feel somewhat naked without them :) and growing my hair longer now… cut in layers, so I can wave them a little bit to look more festive… but 90% of the time I just hairdry it for volume and thats it.

    P.S. I like the new design of the blog. Its so light and clean… Pleasure to read :)

    • Renee January 5, 2011, 12:51 am

      Wow, you’ve done a lot of experimenting! Great that you found a stylist you like, though, that’s hard to find… I’ve just given up, haha. I just get a trim every few months or so from my neighborhood barber! :-P

      And thanks! I love it too, really like it clean like this :)

  • Allison January 3, 2011, 10:22 pm

    I have kind of a rounded square face :D It’s hard to explain, but this is probably the best way to put it. When i was little I always wanted long hair but unfortunately my hair is very very straight and looks flat once it’s past shoulder-length. I also tried a bob cut twice and I did actually like it but I got sick of it after a few weeks every time. You just can’t do anything with a bob cut so it always looks the same… Now I have a similar haircut to you I would say, it’s slightly past shoulder-length with slight layers, just not that wavy. But I think this is the cut I will stick to from now on, no more bob cuts! Last year my hair was really long (at least to me it was long), it was probably about 15cm longer than shoulder-length and I did like that… But after a few months I did a bob cut again (sigh). Now that it’s longer again I finally know that this is what suits me!

    • Renee January 5, 2011, 12:53 am

      Yay! So you’re my hair twin then! :) Haha, we really have to go through all sorts of styles to find the perfect one, don’t we? I guess that’s half the fun :-P

  • Kim January 4, 2011, 1:43 pm

    Definitive tips. What i usually do is just search for various hair style images first and then select one which looks perfect for my square face. That works. You have pointed some great tips here too.

    • Renee January 5, 2011, 12:53 am

      Thanks, Kim! Your avatar is really pretty :)

  • LatestGirls January 5, 2011, 2:13 pm

    Your hair looks lovely.

    I liked that perfect hairstyle for yourself that you have chosen.

  • Gladys January 8, 2011, 11:51 am

    I got natural curly hair, I dunno what hair style is fit for me. Like the other post above. I’m not really a fanatic of straight hair but having those straight hair can give you more option to what hair style would you like to have. I hope you can put some tips on curly hair.

  • Clara August 6, 2011, 6:33 pm

    Hi! Great article
    Think you can help with my hair? My hair is the weird type. I wash my hair and when it dries, it goes really really thick. my hair type is slightly wavy/slightly curly, but not consistent, so there would be a wave here and a curl there (odd I know). My face shape is like a slightly enlongated heartshape. Any suggestions for me?
    Thanks !

  • Clara August 6, 2011, 6:36 pm

    A little follow up (sorry) my heart shape to be exact is, if you put a rectangle and a triange at the bottom, you’ll have my face shape :)

  • Andrew February 9, 2012, 2:03 am

    Hey, great post and really informative. It’s a pity that few hairstylists know (or, if they do, they don’t voice out their opinion) about which hairstyle would suit a person’s face shape best. It’s definitely something that would benefit most people when they’re looking for a change in style.

  • pri February 16, 2012, 9:52 pm

    hey i have an oval shaped face and very curly hair …………….i want to dress up for a party what hair style would suit my face………………please advice me………….as i have shoulder length hair

  • phoebe February 23, 2012, 1:47 am

    Rennée your blog is great, well done!
    I have centre-parted, mid-upper-arm length hair which is dark brown and wavy/curly, but I’m getting quite bored of it and really fancy trying a shoulder length Alexa Chung style cut with a parted fringe like she has. I have a heart-shaped face which is also quite long, and I have a really pointy chin which I hate, but also rather wide cheekbones which are nice-ish I guess. Do you think it would suit me? If anyone has any suggestions as to what to do with my hair I’d be very grateful!

  • Fujairah February 28, 2012, 11:41 pm

    Hi!! My name is Fujairah! I knoww it’s really wierd….but I really need help on my hair!! My face is kind of half oval half round and my hair is REALLY curly, but I don’t really like it and I can’t just go straighten my hair everyday cause that will just damage it :(
    Thank you!!! And sorry for the bother ;) and p.s. I think ur really pretty and ur hair is reaallyyy cute and it suits u well :D

    • Renee February 29, 2012, 12:09 am

      Hey Fujairah, thanks for your lovely comment, I really appreciate it. :) Hmmm, your question is tough! To be honest the only way is to straighten it, however you could braid it before you sleep and so the next day your curls might be less curly… but really there is no way to make it straight other than straighten it. :( It’s best to love your curly hair! I really want curly hair, it’s so beautiful.

    • Jasmin May 19, 2012, 2:18 am

      I think you should get a fresh cut a bit thinned out with a really nice full fringe and keep your hair shiny by using a decent amount of conditioner , I recommend herbal essences or Pantene pro v :), hope this advice helped you :)

  • Nicole July 20, 2012, 12:36 am

    I have a oval/square face. I’ve had a number of hair cuts. I’ve had a bob cut for a long time but didn’t like it. I also had my hair shoulder length. I’ve always have had bangs and want to keep them. I also had side swept bangs. I’m trying to find a new haircut. I wanted a boy cut. Most of my family and friends say that would suit me and would look good. But I want to wait for that when I’m older. I’m 14. I want curly hair. I have slightly wavey hair. Any ideas on what I should get? Thank you!!

  • christena July 24, 2012, 11:47 pm

    hi these are very good hairstyle sites but i really love the beach hair.

  • GC August 6, 2012, 6:27 pm

    hi! I have kind of an oval looking face with high cheek bones, like Emma knightly but a bit longer. I wash my hair almost every day (or else it go’s oily). Its a little bit curly at the ends and wavy in the middle. Its VERY thick. It go’s down to just under my breast. I have no fringe, its long layered and the front is framed. I used to have a front fringe and it looked horrible! Now I have no fringe and my hair really compliments my face, but the problem is, I’m really bored of my hairstyle! I was actually thinking of getting a front fringe again but thicker, kind of like Carly Rae Jepsen in “call me maybe” or a fluffy bob just above my shoulders, but I’m too scared to do either!!! I had a bob done once and it was as bad as the front fringe!! I think my face may have changed since then though. Basically I’m too scared to try anything with my hair incase I ruin it again! Anyone help!!!??? (I’m tryingto lose weight and I don’t want to get a bob until I look thinner, but I really like the Carly Rae Jepsen style)

    P.s sorry for the long comment

I am Nidhi, from Joypure India (its originally Jaipur, but I prefer to call it Joypure cz I love this city and its culture, its Pure Joy living here ;) ) I came across your blog while searching for a perfect cut for me because every time i go for a haircut something or the other goes wrong and i am left with the same old boring cut :( so just thot let me write to you and seek an expert advice :)

    Hi, I absolutely loved all the ideas you gave me on this article, but I’m still unsure of what haircut I should get! I have an oval/oblong shaped face, with long wavy hair but a tiny bit curly. My hair can also get a bit puffy (not anything too bad), but I’m currently trying to control it by using de-frizz shampoos and conditioners. I’ve had the same hairstyles for a very long time now, and I’ve never been able to come up with anything that would look good on me. Please help!
    P.S. Do you know any tips on helping with a bit of puffy hair? Thank you lovely! :) x

    I think I have a long face… But I’m think in the next year or so of cutting almost all my hair off and getting a “boy cut” (like Anne Hathaways new hair just a tad longer). Of course I would donate it all to locks of love. Bur this would be a change for me cause I’ve always had longish hair (past chest). Any advice if I should go for it? Also I’m only a sophomore in highschool but I’ve been thinking about this for several years. Thanks!

  • Jesi January 10, 2013, 12:22 am

    I am about to get my hair drastically changed. I come from a family that believes men are the head and women are…well to be the wife…(I am 34 and unmarried probably because I fight this image), I have stupid curly, that I can style the exact same way each day but each day it looks different and mostly like I did nothing at all. I hate my hair, I only allow pictures to be taken if my hair looks perfectly curly or full and beautiful. If it doesn’t I destroy the evidence.

    With that said I am cutting it all off, the sides will be super short and the top is going to be longer so I can get funky with it (hopefully) I think it may end up being a disappointment but I am willing at this point to try anything. My stylist is one of the best in our city and will not color it or perm it (to give it more definition of curl) untill all the damaged and dry and broken ends are cut off and grown out. I’m not sure why I am sharing this with strangers, but for some reason I needed to talk about this. I know I will never look perfect (even though I have some pictures where I think I do!) but I just want to enjoy my hair…just for a little while before I get old and it turns coarse and ugly (all my older relatives are evidence that his will happen to me).

    My appointment is the 16th of Jan 2013…wish me luck!

  • Roxanne Rivas January 17, 2013, 5:26 am

    Now i have had my hair a lot of ways! LOL and soon to have it changed once again but dont know how to since the last few cuts didnt go so well with my face or look right at all. I have an oval shaped face which up there says it can go with anthing which hasnt helped me decide on what to go with. I have had it long layers, short layered, very CHOPPY layers (Very bad!!), bangs, side bands etc etc etc…. my hair is extremely FLAT and extremely STRAIGHT with no body or volume what so ever. I tried curling and straighting my some what long bands to sweep to the side and seems like whatever i do my hair never holds any shape!! Please help im so dumbfounded at the moment. I have let me hair grow long enough for me to do several things with it so thats a start i guess!

    I have dark brown hair with a full fringe and a long narrow face and find it a nightmare to find a style to suit my face.I have recently had my hair cut short in a pixie style but these seems to have made my face appear even longer. I am wanting some idea’s of hairstyles to suit my face type please.

    ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    • lola March 6, 2013, 4:48 am

      what i think you should do it that you straighten your heir and try to cover your face. if your heir is thick you should cut it as short as your sholders.

  • lola March 6, 2013, 4:46 am

My hair is black and I have grey hairs as well. I think of doing coloring to make all my hair as black. Please suggest me a good hair look.

    I have a long face shape and short hair which is slightly spiked with jel and a full fringe. I don’t particually like it though. I have had my hair long, short, shoulder length, but what would you recommend for me as I could really do with some help. I have medium borwn hair and hazel eyes.

    Any ideas please?

    Hi, my hair is wavy with shoulder length texture is thick and color is black. My face shape is square. Please suggest me right hairstyle. I do not like to leave hair loose, because they becomes messy and frizzy. I have tried 2-3 hair cuts but it was worst.

    Hello, I was hoping that somebody could help me with my multiple hair probs. I’m 42 yrs old and have always had baby-fine wavy/curly blonde hair with a fair complexion (about like most red-heads do) and dark green/brown eyes (tend to change back and forth). I have had multiple hair styles and lengths that I have experimented with. My mom used to make me wear my hair short until about the 5th grade when I begged her to let me grow it long. I’ve had perms in my hair and now I’ve been having highlights put in and I straighten it every now and then. Lately, that’s how beauticians like to fix my hair when they style it is they like to straighten it because my waves don’t all go in the same direction for one but what’s even worse is that my hair especially at the ends get really dry and frizzy unless I let it air dry. And if I don’t wash it everyday, the roots/scalp get really oily and will look like I haven’t washed it in a couple of days. Because my hair type is a combination of everything, not only am I having trouble with finding the right hair style but I can’t seem to find the right hair products (especially ones that I can afford) to make my hair look light, tame and soft. And also if I don’t use a conditioner after shampooing my hair, it frizzes out really bad. I hope to hear back from somebody soon with some news that there is a simple solution to my crazy hair woes.

    • JudyC September 28, 2013, 5:14 am

      From my own experience, if you have wavy hair, that is fine, it is probably going to look better if you straighten it. I have to do this every day. I use a large brush, to style while drying. Of course the size depends on your hair length, which mine is very long. I let it air dry at times, when I’ m not going out, but it looks as if I’ve orphaned my hair. Mine can be drab, and dry, it gets frizzy as well, but using good hair products makes a huge difference.
      I use Pureology, and Peter Thomas Roth. I found these to be the best, and the K-pack Joico products are a second best for me.

      i would suggest a dry shampoo but i don’t know of a good brand. sorry… but i would suggest a short layered cut (not over your ears but more like mid earlobe) that’s a bit longer on one side(covers other ear). it can look simplistic and mature. not “old lady” but not too young either. i would also suggest to look up “short styles for this hair” on google images.i found a few cute ones that might fit what your looking for. also if you do end up straitening your hair, make sure you use a protectant such as Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener. not only will it make your hair look shiny, but it will also protect your hair from the heat and prevent breakage(which of course makes your hair look thinner). hope i helped! =D

  • Lilly June 6, 2013, 12:00 am

    My face is kind of a round heart shape, I have a really long neck, and my hair is, not only straight, but flat too. my hair has these wierd like lumps in it from my layers, and I don’t straighten m hair because it looks awful and flat. My hair is like 3in passes my shoulders and it grows really fast ;), I have the side swept hangs but they’re really flat and kind of small I guess would be the best way to put it. My mon thinks I should cut it short, but I don’t want it too short and I can’t decide whether to cut it or let it grow long. I deffenatley need my bangs done. What do you think I should do to my hair? I want it to be fun for summer. An ideas?

  • Hyder September 24, 2013, 2:02 am

    Is there anything for boys :)

  • JudyC September 28, 2013, 5:07 am

    Okay, I have never been a hairstylist, but I did do cosmetology. I disagree with what people think about Oval face shapes. NO, it is not true, an oval face can wear any hair style. Matter a fact, I find myself very limited. It still depends on your forehead, the shape of your nose…etc. Whatever style I choose, it will need to be with bangs. And I would like to skip the bangs, sometimes, and if I choose a short style, it will make me look 10 years older. I think there is more involved in choosing a hairstyle, than your face shape.

  • Kat October 10, 2013, 6:29 am

    I need some help. I recently got my hair cut to a slightly past the chin bob and I’m not really going for it. I have a oval-ish/round face with thick straight hair. I at first had really long hair but I always wore it up because I would start sweating otherwise! At the beginning of the summer a got this new cut and at first I loved it, but then I found out I couldn’t just wear it down like I’d hoped. It’s just enough to pull into a ponytail and I just want a cut that I can brush through it and be done. I’ve never tried layers, but I’m not sure if I want to. I’m thinking about bangs, but I’m completely clueless on what to do. I know this is long, but I’ve been read articles and doing quizzes since June. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • pavithra December 5, 2013, 2:38 pm

    hi l have round face with long fore head @short@straight hair please help me which hair style will suits me

  • Cindy December 12, 2013, 1:40 am

    HELP! Ok so heres the scoop..Im in my mid 40s. Have always kept hair longer but love the look of shorter hairstyles. Ive dyed my hair for years and now the white is seeping in ..so Ive given up on the dying and then I did this foolish thing of perming my hair several months ago which only dried it out and damaged it. I dont care how much leave in conditioner I use..its just a lost cause Im sure . I have and ovalish shaped face but I also have an injury to the back of my neck which causes a protrusion. Another reason I have always kept long hair..it hid it well. Im overweight and I just dont know if short hair would look good on me..I dont want to look older even though I am getting older. Im sassy and have a wild spirit . I ride motorcycles and I am full of life. I just dont know what to do. So basically …what kind of hairstyle looks good on overweight women. Some women I see with longer hair just looks like they are trying to be younger ..Im not. I just want something manageable that people wont think Im a boy when they see me..LOL any ideas?

  • Apoorva December 24, 2013, 3:35 pm

    hey i dont know what suits my face i am an ordinary average looking girl i want to look stylish not hot or something only stylish. My hairs are heavy brown in color and curly they look rough and damaged but while touching they are smooth. i tried hair spa’s but not permanently solved. what do i do? please suggest any haircut or style. I m tired from “step cutting” .

  • tigerzedd December 31, 2013, 11:17 pm

    i have the same problem but how did your hair end up wavy at
    the ends? Did it just become wavy with the cut or did you wave
    it yourself.

  • Jezz February 28, 2014, 2:39 am

    Find the right hairstyle which suits to your face is very important for getting a stylish look. I always recommend to choose the right hair stylist for a good and awesome looking haircut.

  • Mitsouko March 1, 2014, 6:31 pm

    All my life I had looooong (below my bum) ash brown coloured straight hair and long face. It drove me insane cuz few times I tried another haircut but when I mean ‘another’ I actually mean just various styles of bangs cuz everyone kept telling me : r u gonna cut off your amazing long hair? Don’t be stupid your hair is a gift and bla bla bla and bla. And every single time I was oh okay maybe I am really stupid if I wanna cut it off. But one day (last summer) I was like: enough. I want something really really new so I didn’t tell anything to my mom, friends and other people because I knew that if I listened to them I’ll never be brave enough to say no and do that. So I just went to hairdresser’s and came back with shoulders lenght ashy-blonde hair with hanks of light brown with a bob haircut. I am so so happy right now. I look normal and this hairstyle absolutely suits me.

  • CINDY March 18, 2014, 12:32 am

    Been wanting to cut my hair short but wasn’t really sure if it would fit best with my face shape… I’ve actually tried to fold my hair to my desired length and took a pic of myself without being obvious that I hold the hair at the back.. LOL! It was effective.. This article is helpful but I think it would be better if you also add pics of what a square face looks like or an oval or a heart-shaped face.

  • Adriana April 14, 2014, 9:01 pm

    I always consider the shape of my face when choosing a hair style. I admit I use some curling wands and hair clippers to style my hair.

  • Tazeen April 18, 2014, 2:50 am

    Hey..my hair is frizzy..wavy sort of and is too thick…do u think i should have a hair cut till the shoulder length..??or would it make my hair more unmanageable..??

  • Falguni April 25, 2014, 5:16 pm

    Hey, I have long and wavy hair straight above. I’ve cut my hair in layers but I want a new hairstyle. My face shape is round-ovalish. I really want bangs just like Jessica Day in New Girl, but people say that it wont suit me! What do I do? Should I get bangs?
    I love Jess’ bangs in the show!
    Please suggest!
