Matching your haircut with your face shape is a beauty trick that will never let you down. So for those of you itching for a dramatic chop, here's a quick guide on how short you should go. For lengths that would best flatter your face shape, keep scrolling!
ROUND: Below the jawline
To frame your face and add some sharpness to your jawline, go for a cut that ends slightly below the chin. This should make your jaw area look more defined and angular.
While you're at it, opt for layered ends or sideswept bangs to further frame and highlight your features.
Show off your angular features with a chin-length trim, it will accentuate your strong jawline and create the illusion of a slightly longer chin (square faces tend to have short chins).
But if you want to go shorter, a cropped pixie that ends right along your jaw can give you the same effect! Just try to keep your locks parted to the side to narrow the widest parts of your face.
OVAL/RECTANGLE: Below the chin/Above the brows
Because oval faces are neither too angular nor too round, you can afford to can be very versatile when it comes to haircuts. However, avoid making your face appear longer than it is by choosing a haircut that stops about an inch below the chin.
Another way to counteract an elongated face is by adding a fringe that suits your preference. This technique also works for more angular, rectangle-shaped faces!
HEART: Slightly below the chin/Super short
To flatter the features of a heart-shaped face, snip your locks an inch below the chin. Anything shorter, such as a chin-length cut, will sharpen that part of your face and further elongate it.
