Flattering Haircuts for Every Face Shape

Last updated 1 year ago

Every woman trusts her hairstylist. If you want to become a professional hairstylist, you will need to be able to help your clients choose flattering hairstyles that will work for them. You can do this by learning about cuts that flatter different face shapes. Check out this guide to see what you can learn about face shapes and cuts by enrolling in hairdressing school:

  • Round Faces

If your client has a round face, you will want to give her a haircut that lengthens her face while still showing off her youthful features. You can achieve this with long layers that frame the face starting just under the chin. Side-swept bangs are also a great choice for round faces, as they can lengthen the face and accentuate a beautiful pair of eyes.

  • Square Faces

Clients who have strong facial angles may have a square-shaped face. You can provide a great haircut by softening the strong angles and creating a soft and feminine style. Long hair is a fabulous choice for women with square-shaped faces, but it is not the only option! Provide softness with angled bangs and layers. Avoid center parts, straight bangs, and blunt cuts, as they can put more emphasis on the square-shaped face.

  • Heart-shaped Faces

A heart-shaped face can be complemented with a haircut that brings attention to those gorgeous cheek bones. Side-swept bangs can accentuate cheek bones while softening a strong chin. A pixie cut can also bring more attention to the eyes and cheek bones.

  • Oval Faces

If your client has an oval-shaped face, you can suggest nearly any haircut! This face shape can sport long cuts, short cuts, and everything in between. Focusing on each client’s specific features, such as her nose or eyes, will help you find the best cut for this shape.

You can learn more about finding the best haircuts for your clients during your time in cosmetology school. Learn more about what beauty school can do for you by contacting New England Hair Academy in Boston at (781) 324-6799.
