Select The Most Suitable Hairstyle Basing On Face Shape

Summer is right here, so it is time to pick up some hairstyles that help skip sweat-neck. In terms of the hairstyles mentioned above, updo surely tops the list. For those who fear that there is not an updo suitable for themselves, they are about to be proven wrong, and this article is something must read.

According to Daniel Jordan, Unite’s European Creative Director, choosing the right updo is all about suitability, taking into account our outfit, silhouette and, of course, face shape.

For those who consider updo as something dated, they are wrong partly. “Updo’s used to be considered dated but with the current preference for messier, more undone hair, up-dos have evolved to become fresher and more wearable to a younger audience. Braids are a great example of just one style of up-do which is more contemporary and fun,” said Scott Ade, who is a stylist at Daniel Hersheson.

Because of the popularity and charm of updo, this hairstyle can be the one that we wear often in summer. However, how can we select the most suitable one for us?

Here are some pieces of professional advice offered by Daniel, Scott, and James Galvin from the Daniel Galvin Salon. They explain how to opt for updo styles basing on face shape with the examples of our favorite famous faces.

Round Face Shape

For those who have round face, they are suggested focusing on building weight on the round edges of the face to create structure, like what Jennifer Lawrence did to her hair. She seldom wore hairstyles along with anything too tight or flat, because those hairdos will only emphasize a round face.

A little height in the crown and a side parting make difference, since the former will elongate the face shape perfectly, and the latter will help to compliment our face, according to Scott.

Oval Face Shape

To make updo hairstyle more stunning in oval face shape, the most important element is all about creating softness and, like the round one, building weight around any edges of the face.

“I would avoid any high updos as this will emphasis and elongate an oval face even more,” advised Daniel.

Jessica Alba and Cat Deeley have oval face shapes that we are envious of, and we can get inspiration from their hairstyles.

Square Face Shape

Softening around the edges is required by this face shape, which is well proved by Angelina Jolie time and time again. To keep soft edges, just frame the face with strands around the hairline loosely. According to James, a side sweep or low chignon is great for a square face shape.

“A messier, more modern up-do would be the best look for a square face shape. My advice would be to leave tendrils of hair around the face to keep the look softer. A low bun or messy chignon would work very well,” said Scott.

Heart Face Shape

Having a heart face shape like Scarlett Johansson is something God blessed. It is one of the most enviable face shapes and it suits all updo hairstyles.

No matter which updo looks we choose, loose, fun, or structured, we can put off them if we have a heart shaped face.

“My updo of choice is a classic chignon with a modern twist. Or I will brave a deep parting or textured crown to spice up the look,” said James.

Long Face Shape

If we have long face shape, we should keep one rule in mind–avoid adding too much height in the crown when styling an updo, since the height in the top portion will only add even more length to our face.

Instead, we should gather our hair back into a sleek style. Besides, we can minimize the height around the crown by softening the face with loose pieces at the front.
