The right hairstyle for your face shape can change everything. When you see a celebrity hairstyle you like, you might ask your hair stylist to give you the same look but the effect may not be as expected. It could be that your face shape simply suits a different hairstyle more.

There are six basic face shapes: oval, round, square, diamond, heart, and oblong. We'll take you through all of them and the best hair for each!


The width of forehead is about the same distance as the jawline, and the length of the face is about 1.5 times the widest distance between the cheekbones. Whether it's a sleek ponytail or a delicate wavy, it is for every style.

A face with an oval profile is the most versatile face shape, with enough length and width to achieve the best balance, suitable for any hairstyle. If you have an oval face shape, then celebrate and start experimenting with different styles of cuts!

A round face is characterized by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. Since this shapes is more rounded and soft, it may be best to avoid short hair with bangs. It is a lovely choice to create some apparent arcs to make your face dimensional, such as side-parted bangs and long layered hair highlighting your cheeks and eyebrows. A side-part wig with medium length is an attractive choice for a round face as the side bangs can heighten the top of the head.

Longer hair wigs will give your face an elongated look. If you want to have long curly hair, it is recommended that the length is below the end of the jaw.


The feature of a square face is a wide hairline and jawline. A long and layered wig with a deep side parting is a classic choice for a square face. Deep side bangs can balance the square face while increasing the height of the cranial crown. Straight hair should be avoided for squares to enhance facial lines and highlight the face frame.

The diamond face  should not be parted in the middle, and the side-parted bob head can visually extend the chin. If you want to show the perfect curve of the jaw, you can pass the hair behind the ears in a side hairstyle.

Layered medium and long hair can ease the sharp cheekbones. Because the forehead is narrow, try to be light and thin when choosing bangs. At the same time, it is matched with short hair with layers to highlight the beauty of personality.


Alexa Chung's short shoulder-length hairstyle is the ideal length for long faces. If you want to have long hair wig, you can add texture to your hair to create a layered look, wavy curls to trim the cheekbones, and a full and airy hairstyle is the best choice.
