HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR NEXT HAIRSTYLE, STOP SABOTAGING YOURSELF!

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR NEXT HAIRSTYLE

Have you ever gone into a hair salon with a photo of a hairstyle you found online and asked for the exact same hairstyle or haircut, only to leave the salon wondering if your hairdresser is whack or simply skill-less?



Well, it’s true. They may either be that bad at their job or the hairstyle you chose just don’t suit your face shape.  And since your hairstyle adds up to your ENTIRE look, I feel it’s necessary to throw some light on the topic.

So that you can rock celebrity or pretty much any hairstyle without the added glam team.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR FACE SHAPE

The easiest way to determine your face shape is by first pulling all of your hair back, standing in front of a mirror and tracing the outline of your face with an eyeliner or lipstick.

When you’re done with that, your face shape should fall under these categories.

OVAL FACE

A face is oval shaped if it has no prominent points or angles. The length of your face is longer than the width, and the jawline is slightly narrower than the hairline, which is gently rounded

  • One length hairstyle eg; an all round 30 inches wig

So, my dear friend, what face shape do you have? Have any of the suggestions surprised you?
