There’s a dinner coming up and there’s someone you need to impress. Besides choosing the right outfit, it is important to take care of your hair too! A good outfit can be even more fabulous with a flattering hairstyle.
Below is a list of hairstyles for all the different face shapes, and here’s to turning up to parties looking your best!
Sweep your hair upwards, be it in a high bun or ponytail, but keep the crown slightly puffed up. This helps to elongate your face so it makes it more oval. Just look at how supermodel Kate Upton has done it!
People with oval-shaped faces usually have high foreheads, but you can comb your hair in a deep side part like actress Vinessa Shaw did. This will cover up a part of your forehead if it’s something you feel self-conscious about!
If you have a heart-shaped face, congratulations! You have the same face shape as Reese Witherspoon (#WCW) and I just love her side-swept bangs. They help to draw focus to your eyes and cheekbones and divert attention awah from a sharp chin.
Gwyneth Paltrow flat-irons her hair and parts it in the middle, creating a curtain around her face that helps to soften her angular jaw. The center parting makes her look very modern, and the layers in her hair allow for movement (perfectly windswept hair, anyone?).
Don’t listen to the haters who say you can’t pull off long hair! Sarah Jessica Parker creates an illusion of a wider face with wavy hair but avoids volume at the top. This will help to balance out the overall shape of your face!
These ‘dos can be easily recreated at home as long as you’ve got a flat iron, so no worries if you’re unable to get down to a salon before your event. But if you’re wondering, here are some popular hair salons to check out on Vanitee for a stunning hairdo!
And because we want you to have the best night , here’s a guide to contouring based on your face shape as well!
