Do you know your face shape? How important is understanding the shape of your face?

FaceShape1Understanding the shape of your face is a crucial step toward creating a look that makes you feel best. And while most hairstylists recognize the importance of considering facial structure to strikingly frame individual features, it is essential that you become aware of your particular facial structure. When you understand the shape of your face, you own the power to style your hair in a way that makes you feel exceptional.

There are six different types of face shapes: oval, long, square, round, diamond, and pear.

In order to determine the shape of your face, begin by brushing back your hair so that your bone structure is exposed. Stand approximately twelve inches from your mirror and remaining still, use an eyebrow pencil to draw precisely onto the mirror the outline of your face.

If your face is an oval, you have maximum flexibility in the range of styles that will flatter your features. If your face is not an oval, then the goal is to make your face appear to be as close to oval as possible. The style of your hair should maximize the features that make you feel best. Your face is unique, a work of art. With the proper frame, it will shine.

But, like art, there are times when rules must be broken, when the standard of the day doesn’t fit. If you are a woman who loves eccentricity, who thrives on the avant-garde, then throw convention to the wind and let your hair whip behind. Wear your hair in a way that suits you, that makes you feel beautiful, strong, and sexy. Because that, after all, is the point: a haircut must be in harmony with our life. When we radiate confidence, we are beautiful.
