What shape is your face?The best hair care products and hairstyles are all about framing your face and drawing attention to your best assets. If you pick a style that doesn't go well with the natural shape of your face, you might be playing up features that you'd rather hide. To avoid choosing the wrong haircut, all you need to do is determine what general shape your face is and go from there.

Oval. If you have an oval face, the width of your forehead is equal to the width of your jaw. The length of your face is about one and a half times your width. You can pull off just about any style – just pick cuts that bring out your favorite features.

Round. Round faces are circular and the length and width are almost the same. Look for a style with volume up top to add length. Middle parts also create the illusion of sleekness.

Square. If you have a square face, you have a broad forehead and an angular jaw. Side-swept bangs are a great choice to minimize squareness, along with styles that have height.

Heart. Heart-shaped faces have wider foreheads and cheekbones and a narrow chin. Try out a chin-length, textured hairstyle or a longer cut with wispy layers.
