Round Face Shape

Reducing the roundness is the key to making the face appear longer and creating a great hairstyle. Adele adds height which adds length to her face, she has opted for a large backcombed beehive softening the look with a wavy fringe.

Kelly Clarkson has chosen a shorter hairstyle for her round face. Kelly opts for a long graduated bob which is a perfect hair style choice for round faces.  Her bob is tapered in tighter at the back and the front is slightly longer, which elongates her face making it appear narrower and slimmer.

Long hair is a flattering hair length for round faces and naturally makes the face appear longer and thinner.  Mila Kunis adding body and movement to her hairstyle with some curls with an off centre parting softening the hairstyle.

Long Face Shape

The most flattering hairstyles for long face shapes will need width and body to make the face appear more in proportion. Charlize Theron finishes her short hair with lots of body and large waves widening her hair and making her long face shape appear more in proportion.

Kate Beckinsale adds a blunt straight fringe to her long straight hairstyle.  Kate’s fringe shortens her face making it appear more proportionate.  Fringes will hide a longer forehead therefore making more hairstyles achievable.

Sarah Jessica Parker wears her upstyle low, tight and wide meaning it shortens and widens her face making us believe she has the perfect face shape.

Oval Face Shape

Jennifer Aniston’s adds layers to her hairstyle accentuating her cheekbones which makes this a great hairstyle for oval face shapes.

Katherine Heigl wears her strawberry blonde hair with a deep side parting and a loose bun on the opposing side. Katherine keeps her hair proportionate which is vital to this face shape.

Rhianna’s hair is cut short at the back and sides with lots of length on top. Rhianna’s side swept fringe flatters her face and softens her ‘hard’ haircut, giving her a more feminine look.

Square Face Shape

Gwyneth Paltrow makes her face appear longer by keeping her long hair thin which narrows her face. Gwyneth wears her hair with a centre parting, still on trend for this season and plenty of loose layers creating a ‘tousled’ beachy look.

Keira Knightley wears her short hair in a bob. This hairstyle softens Kiera’s jawbone making it a great hair length for square face shapes.

Olivia Wilde’s centre-parted chignon is a perfect and flattering hair upstyle for people with square face shapes.  Olivia’s upstyle is casual, classy and is very flattering for her square face shape.


Alexa Chung‘s graduated fringe complements her mid-length hair perfectly and is a perfect combination with her ombre-coloured hair. This style of fringe will suit square and long face shapes best.

Jennifer Lawrence has a long side-swept fringe. The swept fringe will soften any hairstyle and is most flattering on square and round face shapes.

Taylor Swift wears a dramatic blunt straight fringe.  The blunt fringe looks best on people with long and oval face shapes.
