In terms of planning for your special wedding look, you need to consider several different things. What is your dress going to look like? Which make-up style will you choose? What hairstyle will work the best for you? You want to choose a hairstyle for your special day that works with the style of dress that you have selected, flatters your figure and frames your face. Looking back on beautiful photos, from Moore and Moore, you need to make sure your hair is perfect. This can be hard to figure out at times. Brides are often pressured these days to fit with what the current hair trends are. It happens to be the ‘updo’ right now. However, what if you haven’t ever worn your hair up? Why would you want to start with something like that now? How you wear your hair all centres around making your feel completely beautiful on your special day. That is why finding a hairstyle that you really love and suits your face is critical To help you find the best style, we have gathered together a few handy tricks and tips to help you determine the best hairstyle that will suit the shape of your face the best.
First of all, you need to determine what your face shape is. That is a fairly easy thing to do. It will make a very big difference in how you style your hair and make-up in the future. The Beauty Department has a great chart that can be used. After you have figure out what shape of face you have, try a couple of different styles out from the categories that are suggested for you or just design one on your own that is based on what you like and your major facial features.
An oval shaped face is wider than its length. The jaw and forehead are around the same width, and the chin is rounded. Big loose curls, a side swept type of style or retro curls are the best styles. It helps to give your face some width. A voluminous hairstyle and dangling earrings can really enhance an oval shaped face.
A diamond shaped face is long and narrow. The widest aspect is the cheekbones. This shape of face often features a pointy chin and works well with hairstyles that are more slicked back instead of having hair touch your face. If a lot of hair is surrounding it, a diamond shape face can begin to appear very narrow, so try to push it all back- by either leaving it curly and loose and pinning the fringe back or pulling it up so that you don’t look to gaunt. Updo’s and ponytails work really well with a diamond shaped face, in addition to slightly off centre bangs and deep side partings.
A square shaped face has an angular and wide jaw line, broad forehead and wide cheekbones. If an up-do style is something you are going for, try for a loose, soft and curly look with loose sections surrounding your face. The most flattering are often long hairstyles, and they are usually best when they are worn straight. If possible, an A line haircut (with long bangs down to your chin) and low hanging hairstyle helps to play down your sharp corners and the right areas will be accented.
A round shaped face is usually as wide as it is long and quite even, with a round chin and circular appearance. Add volume and height to your hairstyle to get the most out of this shape. This will help to trick the eye into thinking your face is longer. High ponytails and loose hairstyles with bangs and many layers are ideal. You could try having some volume at your crown with a half down and half up style.
The heart shaped face features a narrow jaw line with wide cheekbones and forehead and fuller top of face. In order to give this face shape a flattering look, don’t pull your hair back or put lots of height into your crown. This will draw extra attention to a pointed chin and diminishing jaw. Fishtail braids and loose updo’s with wavy, loose, fringe curls are the best hairstyles to help give you a glamorous look and enhance your natural beauty.
An oblong shaped face is a narrow, long shape with pointy chin and straight jaw line. An oblong face can appear more oval with deep side parted, super straight or tight curl hairstyles. A layered, long bang in the front (even with short hair) can ad some volume and help to soften your face.
Pear or Triangular
A triangular shaped face has a square chin, wide jawline, narrow cheekbones and forehead and is very bottom heavy. Half down half up hairstyles are ideal for this shape of face, ideally slightly waved or curl to provide motion as well as widen the appearance of your jaw line. If possible, try cutting in layers and choose a centre parting.
