How to Find the Best Hairstyle

Oct 31, 2007
Sit down at your mirror, get your lipstick ready, and let's go! First, brush the hair away from your face and hold it back with a band or ribbon. Now, look straight in the mirror and trace the shape of your face right on it with your lipstick. Compare your drawing with the following descriptions and pick your type. Find out what's your line - and what to do about it.

The Heart

The Shape:
The forehead is high and wide (the perfect heart has a widow's peak). Cheeks are rounded, sloping into a pretty little chin.

What to do:
Wear your hair fairly long and fluff it out below the ears - this will give width to your chin. Have it dip in close to your temples and cheekbones. Keep it fairly smooth on top. If you are blessed with a widow's peak, be sure to emphasize it.

The Diamond

The Shape:
The forehead is high and narrow. The cheeks are wide - tapering sharply into a pointed little chin.

What to do:
Wear bangs to conceal the shape and height of your forehead. They may be soft and wavy, starting from a side part. They may curve in at the temples. Or they may start high on the crown, with no part. (Never wear a center part if you have a diamond face!)


The Shape:
Round is round is round. Cheeks are curved. Chin has little definition. Forehead is fairly low.

What to Do:
Height is what this face needs. Also a lengthening effect. Never wear a completely rounded hairdo, or a frilly, curly one. And never, never wear it flat on top. Achieve height with hair brushed up, or try swooping it out on one side.

The Square

The Shape:
The forehead is fairly low and about the same width as the jaw. The chin has little definition.

What to Do:
Curves are what a square face needs. Hair should be fairly short at the sides or swept up and away from the face. Never wear it longer than the ear tip. Never wear it flat on top. And, above all, never wear a center part. Your objective is to give your face height to take it out of the Square category.

The Oblong

The Shape:
As with the Square, the forehead is about the same width as the jaw. But it's higher and the length of the face is longer. Again, the chin has little definition.

What to Do:
Unlike the Square, the Oblong needs to be shortened. And, as with the Square, never wear a flap top. This would only emphasize the squareness of your forehead. Instead, round out the top of your head without giving it too much height. Or give it a draped puff. And round the sides to give the effect of width.

The Pear

The Shape:
The forehead is narrow and the jaw is prominent. The same hairdos are recommended whether the chin is well defined or not.

What to Do:
The chief objective is to give width to the forehead and the upper part of the face. Height won't hurt, either, as it will concentrate interest on the top of the head instead of the jaw. Hair should be below the ear tips. Use any type of part you prefer - center, side or asymmetric. Then brush your hair away from it, out and up, never down.

The Oval

The Shape:
This is supposed to be the ideal shape. The forehead is neither too high nor too short. The cheeks curve and are neither full nor too hollow. The chin is rounded and is neither too pointed nor too diminished.

What to Do:
The Oval is the classic shape, and any girl is lucky if she has it. It is the shape that all other shapes try to approach. It is simply marvelous to be perfect. But, in a way, it's more fascinating to have a face that is slightly off-beat, so you can be your own artist!

Find your face shape and you will discover the best hairstyle for you.
