Not too long and not too short, this medium length helps elongate a round face while making a long face look wider.

There’s no denying that this style is definitely the “it” haircut of the season. With numerous celebrities cropping their long locks for a slightly longer version of the bob, we can’t get enough of this chic hairstyle. Get your hairdresser to create an angle so your front is slightly longer than the back for a sexy edge.

A paddle brush and a blow dryer is all you need to maintain this style that definitely makes for some fuss-free fabulousness.
There’s a reason why Jen Aniston's “Rachel” hairstyle is so iconic, even today, it’s because layers suit everybody and are perfect for adding some gorgeous depth to your mane, no matter how long or short you want to keep it. Choppy layers bring plenty of volume and character to your locks and are easy to tweak to suit you best. If you have a round face, then your layers can start from your chin to help elongate your face and if your face is long, then they can start higher up, around your cheeks to help widen your face. Just add a few spritzes of a shine spray for a lush, glossy finish to your strands that will definitely land you plenty of appreciative glances.
Bangs are definitely the easiest way to change up your look and freshen up your style without having to chop off all of your locks. Now a full box fringe may not be everybody’s cup of tea but cute, angular bangs on the side suit practically any face. They’re great for covering a wide forehead, adding dimension to a round face or width to a long face and also help softening a square-shaped face. Side-swept bangs – long or short go perfectly with hair of any length and texture and are universally flattering.
