How to Find the Right Hairstyle for Your Face Shape: A Comprehensive Guide


At Belt Salon, we believe that the right accessories can elevate any outfit, and that includes your hair! But with so many different hairstyles to choose from, it can be overwhelming to know which one will look best on you. That's why we've put together this comprehensive guide to finding the right hairstyle for your face shape.


Step 1: Determine Your Face Shape

Before you can find the right hairstyle, you need to know your face shape. The four main face shapes are:

  • Oval

  • Round

  • Square

  • Heart

To determine your face shape, stand in front of a mirror and use a measuring tape or ruler to measure the width of your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline. Then, use these measurements to determine which of the four face shapes you have.


Step 2: Learn About Your Face Shape


Once you know your face shape, it's important to learn about its characteristics. This will help you understand which hairstyles will be most flattering. Here's a breakdown of each face shape:

  • Oval: If you have an oval face shape, your face is longer than it is wide, and your forehead is slightly wider than your jawline. You have balanced features, so you can pull off a wide variety of hairstyles.

  • Round: If you have a round face shape, your face is as wide as it is long, and your cheekbones are the widest part of your face. You want to create the illusion of length with your hairstyle, so choose styles that add height and volume at the crown.

  • Square: If you have a square face shape, your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are all about the same width. You want to soften the angles of your face with your hairstyle, so choose styles with layers and soft, rounded edges.

  • Heart: If you have a heart face shape, your forehead is wider than your jawline, and your chin is pointed. You want to balance your face with your hairstyle, so choose styles that add volume to the lower half of your face.



Step 3: Meet Your Stylist


Now that you know your face shape and what kind of hairstyle will be most flattering, it's time to meet with one of our expert stylists.
