1 The Circular Face

If you have a circular face, you should feature styles that sport a longer length of hair. Long straight hair would be top notch for you, making you look sexy and elegant. Alternately, you could choose a straight long fringe or a wavy ponytail. Either of these options would make you look good and suit your face. With a round face you should never cut your hair to the level of your chin to avoid making your face appear plump and rounder.

2 The Square Face

Like the round face, a square face too has more mass and as a result also needs longer hair. However, to tone down and soften the squarish features, long curls are best. In fact get your hair styled in multiple layers which would make you look, both chic and cute. A short sideways fringe also works just as well on a square face, but the sides need to be of a longer length so that your cheeks remain covered.

3 The Heart-Shaped Face

Quite a few people have a heart-shaped face of which the most prominent and distinct feature is the chin. Medium length flowing hair is quite compatible with this shape or even medium length curls. For a casual date or work you could sport a side ponytail. The reason for abiding by hairstyles according to your face is to draw the attention away from distinctive features, in this case the chin. You need to focus on your cheeks, eyes and forehead.
