How to Choose: Your Hairstyle

Hello Bella,

Some of you may know that my mother is a fashionista
and very talented hairdresser/salon owner.

In all my years of sitting in her salon
(since I can remember)
and after all the years of her mentoring....

I have picked up a few tips on

{How to Choose}

The best style or haircut for you.

Step #1 is defining your personal face shape.

This can be classified by geometrical shapes
[ie. heart, circle, oval, triangle or square]

Pay attention to the silhouette of the face

Emma Watson's face is heart shaped.

The heart shaped face can wear almost any hairstyle.
However, the most flattering looks are those that show the silhouette.
Therefore, it is best if the person with this face shape does not choose
a long hairstyle unless the hair is very full and stays off the face. If the
hair is too close to the face it can overrun the petite facial features.

Mila Kunis' face is a circle.

The circular face is complimented by those hairstyles that are
full and cut into the circular appearance. Her long hair and swooped
bangs are a perfect example.
Pay attention to how they cut into the circular shape.

Eva Longoria's face shape is oval.

Oval shape faces are complimented by a full figured top. The height
draws the eyes upward and keeps the face from looking long and
drawn out. Shorter hair is perfect for this face shape because it easier
to keep texture and a full figure toward the top. However, if you
are set on long hair, just make sure to tease and keep the top full. 

Kim Kardashian's face shape is a triangle.

Kim is the perfect example of a triangular shape. However, you can
hardly recognize the corners of her face because she has
covered the edges by letting her bangs swoop into her face shape.
She also has a lot of body in her hair and therefore can keep it long.
If you have thin hair you can do a shorter cut and texture around the face.

Reece Witherspoon's face is a square shape.

The square face shape needs to have a soft appearance
in order to smooth the edges of the face. Swooping
soft bangs are a great look for a square face shape.
The square shape is also complimented by long
and soft hair (curls are ideal).

My face is Heart shaped...

And this is what my mom and I came up with.

  2. Hi Carly!
    How funny :] Were you needing advice for your wedding day or just in general??

  3. I love the short hair! I have been tempted to cut my hair short, but I am a little terrified to do so. My blog has a couple photos of me on it. Any advice? I would love to hear your opinion!
