When it comes to choosing the perfect haircut, the decision is highly personal and depends greatly on a number of factors. You may consider your lifestyle choices, your own personal preferences, as well as the texture and thickness of your hair. However, did you know that you should also be considering your overall face shape in your decision? At DeWeese Design Salon Inc., our expert stylists have perfected the art of finding the right hair length based on a client’s face shape. Read on to learn more!

Right Hair Style for Face Shape


Clients with an oval-shaped face will have a long face and a jawline that is slightly narrower than the hairline. Typically, an oval shaped face will have no prominent points or angels and is well-balanced and proportionate. This type of face is quite easy to work with and will look great with a variety of hairstyles. However, our top recommendation for an oval-shaped face is a blunt bob with face-framing pieces or a shoulder-length cut with layers.


Faces that feature a more heart-shape are typically wider at the hairline and temples then slowly taper to a narrow chin. Often the forehead is more prominent and the cheekbones are beautifully well-defined. To choose a hairstyle for a heart shape, we recommend finding one that will either accentuate or balance out your features. A long bob past your shoulders, a side-parted pixie cut, or a long cut with a deep side part will show off your features best.


Finally, those with round faces will have the same width and length all the way around without any prominent features. Often, this face shape makes a person look younger and can therefore pull off more fun, youthful haircuts. We love to do a long layered cut, a choppy pixie cut, a long bob, or add short side bangs for a face with a round shape. Each of these options will help add some angels and elongate your face.
