The last 14 months have been a long haul, and have certainly taken a toll on our beauty regimens. Now that people in many parts of the country are getting vaccinated, and you are somewhat able to ditch your masks, taking another close look at the hairstyles that will flatter your face is a good idea. In some ways people all have to re-invent their hair without a mask, and now is a great time to try out a new hairstyle. Whether you return to your pre-mask hairstyle or try something totally new and different, there are several tips that can help you find the perfect hairstyle for your face.
An oval face is slightly longer than it is wide, and very well-proportioned. If your face is oval, you have won the lottery when it comes to haircuts. Long layers will be your friend, and give you the bounce and vitality you need. You can also count on the volume on the sides to add width. In short, volume and length will look great on your oval face. Get more volume with the Platform Handle-less Hair Dryer
, as a blow out is a fantastic way to gain more thickness and life. Blow dry your hair upside down to lift the roots and add even more volume.
Heart Shaped Faces
A heart shaped face is one of the most workable shapes, and there are many ways to flatter this shape with a hairstyle. Having a heart shaped face means your face is wider at the top and narrower at the chin area. If you have a heart shaped face, you need face framing layers, and bangs would look great on you! Creating bangs that are longer on the sides frames your face even more beautifully and minimize the forehead. You can easily create face-framing bangs with this Platform Signature Pro Styler
, a tourmaline ceramic styler that seals in moisture and repels frizz and static.
A ‘long’ face is thin and long, and having a long slender face is something many women dream of. In order to find the absolutely best look, try to create some width to even out your length. Side swept bangs do the trick. Voluminous curls also look stunning. A shoulder-length hairstyle is the most flattering for your face shape. Create some killer curls with this Titanium Pro Curler
, which is great for thick and hard to curl types. Moisture locking negative ions keep your hair more hydrated as it curls, in order to create some width to flatter your face.
A square face features both a square shaped forehead and chin, creating beautiful sharp lines. To add some softness, try out layers and wisps. Long layers look quite regal. Conversely, a tousled bob looks flattering on a square face. This Sleek Titanium Pro Styler
will heat up quickly, and the negative ions will keep your hair hydrated. Grabbing a few strands at a time and curling away from your face will create a “messy” look that will add great contrast to your stunning sharp lines.
Having a round face is like having an extremely flexible palate with which to work. The secret to flattering round faces is to create length and create height. You can do this in several ways, such as getting a short cut with a high top, long layers, and a center or side part. With so many choices to pick from to highlight your round face, there are many ways FHI Heat can help. Our Nano Lite Pro
will provide you with a sassy blow out, or try this Pro Heated Brush
that can smooth, curl, flip, or add volume to your hair.
A fuller forehead and chin area will flatter your diamond shape. A super short cut or an updo will define the angles. You can highlight your enviable cheekbones with an angled bob or the ability to tuck your hair behind your ears. Use this root lift spray
to get the height you are looking for to even out the diamond shape. This volumizing mousse
is a great companion product to the root lift spray.
