Before you seriously consider cutting your hair just like one of your favourite celebrities, you will need to start with your own face shape.
Just because you find a celebrity hairstyle that you like does not mean that it will look good on you.
You should put your clothes selection and hairstyle selection into the same category.
Bonding hair extensions are a good accessory for your hair to look longer and thicker.
They need to be tailored to your look and your likes.
Just like someone with a thick waistline should not wear the same clothes as someone with a small waistline, a hairstyle needs to be designed to best suit your facial features and even your body type.
Many celebrity hairstyles today have certain features to them, such as long layers or bangs that can be incorporated into your hairstyle.
So, don’t throw away those celebrity hairstyle photos because you don’t have the same face shape as the celebrity.
With Hot Bond Hair Extensions your hair cut will look exactly as you want in less than 3 hours.
To determine your face shape, pull all of your hair back into a ponytail or clip.
Stand in front of a mirror and trace the outline of your face onto the mirror using something removable (i.e. a bar of soap, washable marker, etc.).
Next, stand back and look at the shape that you drew.
Does it look more oval, round, square, heart-shaped or oblong?
It could be the combination of any of these shapes.
There are 5 basic face shapes that we will cover, oval, round, square, heart and oblong. Most of us have combinations of these face shapes.
Oval Face Shape
This is the ‘wannabe’ face shape, similar to the hourglass body shape.
Oval face shapes are highly desired and envied.
All other face shapes attempt to create the illusion of having an oval face.
The oval face shape suits any hairstyle, including long, short, medium, layered, straight or even curly.
Bangs can be added to emphasize the eyes or add a little change.
Celebrities with oval face shape include Jessica Alba, Charlize Theron, and Beyonce Knowles.
Round Face Shape
A round face is as wide as it is long with rounded edges.
The nose is the center guide.
In trying to maintain the appearance of oval face shape, hair for round face shapes should be kept close to the sides of the face, while the crown will need height and volume.
If you want your face to appear slimmer, make sure hair is showing below the chin.
Layers from the lips down remove bulk and weight from the sides.
Tapered ends will draw attention away from the roundness by allowing hair to fall close to the head.
One length cuts tend to widen the face.
Avoid short hair and volume at the sides.
Celebrities with round face shapes: Cameron Diaz, Kyra Sedgwick and Penelope Cruz.
Square Face Shape
The square face shape is as wide as it is long and has strong angles.
This face shape needs a hairstyle with softness to lessen the effects of the angles.
Long hairstyles should fall past the shoulders, with face-framing layers to soften the jawline.
Shorter styles should be kept round and soft with height in the crown area.
Wispy bangs are great, as well as fluffy, wispy curls.
Avoid one-length hairstyles; especially chin-length and blunt-cut bangs.
These styles will accentuate the square-ness of your face shape.
Celebrities with square face shapes include Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Geena Davis.
Heart Face Shape
The heart-shaped face is wide in the eye and cheekbone area with a narrow or pointy chin.
Many heart-shaped faces also have a high forehead.
For long hair styles, add long, wavy layers around your cheekbones that fall in the neck area.
For shorter hair, add top layers that are long and soft.
Side-swept bangs are a great technique to lessen the width and height of the forehead area.
Avoid blunt-cut bangs, short hair, ponytails and choppy layers.
Subtle layering is much more flattering. Celebrities with Heart Shaped Face include Brittany Murphy, Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johannson.
Long Face Shape
Long faces are described as oblong- long and narrow.
The goal with this face shape is to create the illusion of more width by adding fullness at the sides and having a smooth top with bangs of some sort.
Curls and waves can also add width to your face and make it appear more oval.
Avoid extremely long, straight styles, one-length cuts, short layers that add volume in the crown area and styles without bangs as these will make your long face much more pronounced.
Celebrities with long face shapes include Hilary Swank and Sarah Jessica Parker.
