Faces come in different shapes and sizes. There are round faces, oval ones, squares and diamonds as well. That does not mean one shape is better than the other, it just means there are different types of hairstyles that suit different face types. While one hairstyle can frame your face and give it definition where it needs it most, others can completely ruin your look by accentuating the features you’d want to hide. At the #IndiaModern -themed Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2016 , we spotted 7 hairstyles on 7 real women that you can adapt for your type of face shape right away.
1. Bang Pao!
The fringes haircut (also known as bangs) tied into two pigtails (or, in this case, two buns) works well for round faces. While the pigtails add the illusion of height to your face, the multiple layers in this haircut frame your face to make it appear slimmer.
2. Hun-ey Don’t Go
The half bun or what is better known as the hun is a half-up, half-down Samurai-inspired hairstyle that has gained popularity this year. It keeps the hair out of your face and also gives you a very chic makeover. Wear this style if you’ve got a square face with soft features.
3. Sidey Business
The side braid makes even a drab outfit stand out. Pick this style if you have an oval face shape. While ovals go with most hairstyles, the braid highlights your slim face. Add chutzpah to a plain braid with hair accessories.
4. Poker Straight
Keep your hair long, straight and open if you have a round face. Long, straight hair makes a round face look longer and also frames the sides of your face (if there are layers in your hair).
5. Shine Bright Like A…
Women with diamond-shaped faces should go for haircuts that end right below their jawline and styles that fall right along the frame of their faces. A side parting makes our face look less angular.
6. The Pixie
A Pixie-style haircut is very easy to maintain and is completely fuss-free. Extremely short, the pixie suits women with oval faces and soft features. A layered pixie adds volume to your mane.
7. The Milkmaid Braid
The milkmaid braid is another hairstyle that goes perfectly with diamond-shaped faces. It softens a strong jawline (when made as a messy braid) and adds a great deal of cool to your look. Dress it up with hair accessories for a night out.
