Hairstyles for your face shape
Have you ever tried pulling off a top knot after you saw your fave celeb effortlessly rocking it and was completely thrown off by how ridiculous it looked on you? That's probably because you ignored the other important facial features that mesh well with a top knot. Before we jump right into this guide which will educate you on how to choose the hairstyle for your face shape, let's get one thing out of the way—choosing the right hairstyle for your face shape can be more complicated than you think. First and foremost, you have to understand what shape your face is. Next, in addition to finding a flattering hairstyle for your face shape, your specific features that need highlighting, or softening should also be taken into account.

How to figure out your face shape

The first step to choosing the right hairdo for you is to determine your face shape. How do you do that? We're glad you asked! We have broken down the types into six primary categories. Square—Square-faced shapes are characterised by a wide hairline/forehead and jawline. Round—Wide hairline, wider and fuller cheeks. Oval—Longer face, narrower jaw. Heart or triangle—Wide forehead, narrower chin. Rectangle or long—Long narrow bone structure, often accompanied by a thin, long neck. Diamond—Narrow chin, narrow forehead, wide cheekbones. Now that you know your shape, let's talk about your hair. Please take into consideration your strongest features and how much of it you want to draw attention to.

Your ideal dos

Avoid getting a haircut that ends at your chin length or fringes that frame your chin and draw attention to the sharp jawline. Instead, go for a long hairdo—shoulder length or even longer would visually make your jawline seem narrow, bringing in more balance in your features. Owing to the square shape of your face, if you are concerned about softening the edges of your wider forehead, don't part your hair in the middle and think problem solved. Get some bangs and go with a side parting.

The trick is to find balance by getting some bangs in the middle to break the circle and curl your hair/layers outwards at the bottom.

[caption id="attachment_70729" align="alignleft" width="191"]Heart of triangle Heart or triangle[/caption] Heart or triangle On a heart-shaped face, you may want to highlight your beautiful chin and jawline by getting a short bob accompanied by fringes and layers on top going inwards.   [caption id="attachment_70731" align="alignright" width="224"]long1 Rectangle or long[/caption] Rectangle or long This is a no-brainer, to compensate for the length of your face you can easily incorporate some bangs on the top. You may also want to avoid wearing your hair long with sleek strands, straightened to perfection—that would just make your face seem even longer and that's just a big no-no.   [caption id="attachment_70734" align="alignleft" width="200"]diamond1 Diamond[/caption] Diamond Getting some volume on the top of your head would compliment this face shape. You could also flatter your features by adding in some short, cute bangs.         Illustrations: Kabir Humayra Ava
