Perfecting your parting is an art that every woman needs to master! However, many times our natural parting or the parting we go with on a regular basis, may not be best suited for our face shape.
You may be wondering why you should care about something as trivial as your hair-parting in the first place. Well, ladies, believe it or not, finding the right kind of parting for your face shape can have a major impact on your overall look. Find the right one for your face shape, right here!
1. Round Face
If you have a round face, a deep middle part would be ideal for you. A deep parting right through the middle makes your face appear longer. It will create a nice frame for your face and even highlight your cheekbones!
2. Oval Face
If you have an oval shaped face, you’re a lucky one! Pretty much any parting style suits your face. We would, however, suggest that you go for a nice side parting. Since your face is already long, a middle parting would only make it appear longer. A side parting, on the other hand, would balance your features out nicely.
3. Heart-Shaped Face
This kind of shape means that you have a wide forehead and cheek region. An off-centre parting is the way to go with such a face shape. This will cover your forehead up a bit and make your face appear more balanced-out.
4. Square-Shaped Face
A side parting is the best option for someone with a square-shaped face. Having a square-shaped face means you have a wide jaw line with sharp angles. A side part helps bring softness to the sharp angles and creates better facial balance. However, remember to keep the parting only moderately to the side. A parting too deep can actually exaggerate the squareness of the face.
5. Diamond-Shaped Face
If you have a diamond-shaped face, staying away from front bangs or middle partings and actually opting for a side parting is the best option. A side parting will compliment your strong bone structure and cheekbones. Since diamond-shaped faces usually have smaller foreheads, anything too dramatic or right through the centre will overshadow your face.
