The Best Short Hairstyles For Your Face Shape

Keen to chop off your locks but not sure what 'do works best for you? Kimage Salon's hair experts tell us how to choose the best bob cut for your face shape.

#1: Round

Round faces tend to have a wide hairline and a fuller chin, so go for a hairstyle that’s no shorter than your chin. To elongate your face, blow-dry the top part of the hair to add volume. Fringe-wise, stay away from bangs – a side part will help you frame your visage and make it appear narrower.

#2: Diamond

If you have this face shape, you have a narrow forehead and chin so your cheekbones are the widest point of your face. A chin-length bob will help to add width to the chin area, while ultra-short baby bangs or side bangs will work best as these will emphasise your eyes and high cheekbones.

#3: Heart

A tapered chin-grazing cutwhere the hair is no longer than the jaw, is most suitable for this face shape (picture an inverted triangle, with the forehead is at the widest, and a pointed chin)A side-swept fringe also means that your forehead, which tends to be wider, can be slightly covered. If you want more volume and dimension, go for choppy layers.

#4: Square

People with a squarish face shape have wide brows and an angular jawline. These can be narrowed with a shoulder-length bob. Side-swept bangs will also soften the square edges of the face. Note: avoid straight, blunt cuts that potentially make your appearance seem more boxy.

#5: Oblong

Oblong face shapes are typically longer than oval-shaped faces and have a narrow chin. A shoulder-length cut works the best for this, while heavy, full bangs would help to shorten the forehead. You can try different styles, from blunt bangs to side-swept ones.
