Tapered, curly, or layered … It’s not always easy to find the cut that suits you, when you have long or medium-length hair. Here are some tips to help you choose which hairstyle will look best on you.
How to choose your long, shoulder-length haircut?
Even if you don’t have to, there are some cuts that will make your facial features stand out more than others.
For an oval face: give volume to your hair by making a layered or tapered cut, let your hair directly touch your jaw, to emphasize your smile and accentuate your gaze.
For a rounded face: To reduce the roundness of your face, opt for a long or mid-length cut. Its appearance interacts with the features of your face and lengthens them in a visible and marked way. Avoid the strict square.
For a square face: for long hair, go for a more structured cut. If you have medium-length hair, it is quite possible to opt for a simple couple in order to highlight the natural lines of your face.
For a rectangular face: Cutting your hair to fit your shoulders is still the best option if your face is rectangular in shape.
Although some prefer to have long hair, it is better to have a certain volume and a rather thick hair. Fine hair is prone to brittleness, so if you do, cut back the length and flaunt a nice bob.
Some ideas for cuts …
Without a doubt, the most trendy cut of recent years, the plunging bob has one main advantage, which is that it fits all face shapes. There are various ways to wear the plunge bob on straight, wavy, or curly hair with bangs. To give style to your short haircut, nothing like a pretty color. Bet on a play of light and shadow. Or dare more flashy colors to bring out your personality.
The plunging square, but with a fringe
Straight bangs are usually reserved for a short plunge bob. This is why, it is strongly advised to wear a thick bang and to let it arrive on your eyes. Do not hesitate to draw a line in the middle of the cut to give symmetry to the latter. However, if your face is round, it is not recommended to combine a square cut and a fringe, this will accentuate the roundness of your features. This hairstyle will give you a rock look.
Here is a long bob, but revisited with locks of different lengths. The strands which surround the face must be longer than those which are located at the back of the head. Give an airy and supple side, by treating your hair strand by strand, alternating inside and outside. For more pep, go for a trendy look with a well-marked centered parting and very slightly wavy locks.
The blunt-cut if you want maximum volume
