Oval faces:

Layers will however emphasise your cheekbones giving them more definition but try to stay away from hairstyles that emphasise the volume at the top of your head as it lengthens your face.

Long face:

For longer faces, you need to give the impression of width to provide a fine balance, moreover either have long, but not excessively long hair or hair to the side or chin length cuts. Also curly and wavy styles will add volume and width therefore suiting and complementing your facial shape.

But keep away form blunt cuts or simple straight cuts as it does not complement your facial shape and also does not look good on long faces.

So hair cuts for curly faces:

The short style should be a little bit of length to allow you to show off some of your desirable facial features. Heavy texturing and layering should be avoided as it does not possess a slim face look.

The round face is characterized by a wide jaw line and narrows at the temples and end of the face. The need for wide and drastic hair cuts can be carried out to glam up your round face.
