Celebrity Hairstyles: Flatter Yourself!

Jet Rhys offers some suggestions on which cuts flatter different facial shapes.

The Heart face looks great in a swingy collarbone-length cut with long layers and soft, side-swept bangs that hit the eyebrows.

The Square face is accentuated by cuts and bangs that are too blunt or angular.  Opt for above-the-shoulder layers with wispy fringe and face-hugging pieces.

The Round face looks best in bobs that fall just below the chin and layers that kick off the face.  To be avoided: Very short, choppy cuts without hair around the face.

The Diamond face is complemented by face-framing layers and softly rounded, blended bangs.  Stay away from longer hair, which closes the face in with the narrow forehead.

The Oblong face needs layers.  Try a long look styled off the face using a round brush for width.  Strong bobs can make the face look longer if they’re too short.
