The key to a hairstyle for a round face is choosing one that will elongate and slim the face or draw attention to another feature. A piecey pixie like Michelle Williams' is great because it brings focus to the eyes and cheekbones. When styling, make sure to keep the look soft by styling with fingertips. We suggest using a hair wax such as Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Water-Based Shine Wax ($3.99, target.com).
Long layers that start below the chin lengthen round faces. Jennifer Lawrence's subtle layers also help to keep her strands from falling flat. Her wispy bangs add body as well. To protect long strands, use TREsemme Split Remedy Leave-In Conditioning Spray ($5.99, walgreens.com). Since we've started using it, we're hooked!
Oval faces can look very long, so it's best to get a hairstyle that softens it. A center part like Julia Roberts' opens up the middle of the face and draws attention away from the jawline. However, be aware that flyaways can look more pronounced with a center part, so be sure to use a flyawayer tamer such as John Frieda's Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer ($8.99, Ulta.com).
Curved bangs like Liv Tyler's are perfect for oval shaped faces for two reasons. One, they shorten the length of the face and two, the slight curve brings the focus to the eyes as opposed to the shape of the face.
Square face shapes can be harsh if they are not paired with a flattering hairstyle. Wearing your hair long and straight like Lea Michele's softens the square angles, as well as her long layers and piecey bangs.
It may still be spring, but beach waves are starting to make an appearance. And Rachel McAdam's are perfect for square face shapes because they emphasize the layers and not the squareness, while also adding depth. When using a curling iron, apply a heat protector such as Miracle Leave-In from It's a 10 ($15, buy.com) to protect hair.
Asymmetrical hairstyles, like Emmanuelle Chriqui's side swept 'do, break up a perfectly symmetrical square face. Creating waves like Emmanuelle's with a curling iron also adds an asymmetrical element as well.
We seriously have been crushing on Miley Cyrus' new bob. It brings focus to her cheekbones and also fills in the area around her narrow chin, a feature that is very pronounced in heart face shapes. To add body, use a round brush and spritz with volumizing spray such as L'Oreal EverStyle Volume Root Lifting Spray ($5.99, target.com).
We love messy-on-purpose updos because they surprisingly can look very elegant. Now the gorgeous Nina Dobrev has given us another reason. When placed in a deep side part, they are perfect for heart shaped faces as they emphasize the cheekbones and open the face up. Use a dry shampoo such as Redken powder refresh 01 ($15.99, amazon.com) to create texture and keep the hair in place.
