Trying to look our best involves us taking more than a few steps. Our biggest one is generally investing in a good skincare routine. After all, fashion changes from season to season, but we only have one set of skin…even if it gets continually rebuilt. Good skincare combined with just the right amount of makeup can go a long way to helping us look our best. The same is also true of a good wardrobe. Something timeless or delightfully modern can be equally tasteful depending on how you choose to wear it. It remains something elusive though as some people seem to have a knack for simply assembling perfect outfits that help them stand out in a crowd. All of this is meant to complement our looks properly. The same is true of getting a good hair style. You want something that works with you rather than against you while still retaining that sense of individuality that you want to keep on display. We’ve got a few tips to help you make the most of choosing a good hair style to match your face.
You’re going to need to figure out your overall facial shape to get a good hair style. Most of us cannot simply pick a random hairstyle and make it look perfect. Some of them will make our face look too long while others will leave our faces looking a bit wider than we’d like. Picking a good hairstyle helps to offset any extremes of your features in such a way that they even out of become complementary. The difficult part in this is that every potential facial shape has at least two different names depending on who you ask. There’s also the fact that it can be difficult in some cases to quite pin down exactly what shape your face is as sometimes we lose track of it based on how we’re already wearing out hair. We recommend talking to your favorite beautician at the salon to be pointed in the right direction if you’re not sure. Once you know your facial shape, you have an idea of the kinds of styles that will work with your face.
Another thing that we need to note in this case is how healthy our hair is and how it behaves. The shape of your face is important, but how your hair acts is just as important. Think and coarse hair behave entirely differently from one another. For instance, bangs are a bad idea for anyone with thin hair as the thin bangs will go limp and lose life as they pick up sweat and oil from one’s forehead. Thicker hair can handle it without an issue. However, that hair brings its own issues as no one wants to wear coarse hair too heavily or it will become a burden. We have to balance out these concerns to avoid having a hairstyle that, while capable of framing our face properly, diminishes our appearances in entirely different ways. Talk through the hairstyles available to you thanks to your face shape with your beautician and focus on what will work with your kind of hair specifically to avoid problems.
Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance
The last big consideration is honestly how much maintenance you’re willing to put into your hair. There are plenty of good hairstyles for every face and hair type combination, but some take a little more effort than the rest. You’ll want to weigh this alongside all other considerations as well. Remember that short hair is almost always easier to take care of even if it isn’t always the look we start out seeking. We recommend trying to find a nice balance. A good hairstyle that works for everyday is a wonderful choice, but you might want it at a length where you can still have something notable done for special occasions. This is all up to you though. You can achieve good results simply from using hair accessories to add that extra splash of color to your appearance as well. Medium length hair can also be comparatively low maintenance in some styles. Once again, discuss your options with a beautician to help you make the best choice.
Choosing the right hairstyle to fit your face has a lot to do with juggling several factors to find what works. That’s why hair styles have so many variations. One version may be suitable for people with a particular type of hair while the other was the solution to make the style work for another type. Figuring out how to manage the mixture of your ideal look with your facial shape and hair type can be a difficult task. Once you find the right style though, you probably won’t care whether it is high or low maintenance.
