What is the Right Hairstyle for My Face?

This is a guest post by Anu of Beauty Secrets Revealed. Choosing a perfect hairstyle depends on a several factors such as the length, texture, density of your hair and your face shape.

How to determine your face shape?
Stand straight and still in front of the mirror. Draw the outline around the reflection of your face, with a lipstick or a marker. Step away a bit and see if the shape looks oval, square, triangle, diamond, round or heart to you. It is very much possible that you do not perfectly fit into any one shape category. Your face might be a combination of square on top and round at the jaws, or some other combination. Just try to fit it in a closest category possible.

Basically all you need to do is select a hairstyle to emphasis good features on your face and shift the focus away from not-so-good features.
OVAL face -
 You are lucky if you have a perfect oval face. Your style options are unlimited to experiment with. Any cut, style, length of hair is going to be good for you. Beyonce has a perfect Oval shape, though she prefers to keep her hair long, wavy and simple she could get away with any style.
Features  -
  •  Length is equal to one and a half times width.
  •  The forehead and jaw are the same width.
  •  Cheekbones may or may not be high.
Do’s – any length cut is good.  Fringe, razor cut, straight, curly, bangs, layered, bob, blunt, wavy
Don’ts – Let the perfect shape of your face show. Don’t cover your face with heavy bangs .

ROUND face -
