Oval or round face shape: “Almost any haircut can work, but be aware that a round face can have a smaller forehead, so avoid bangs and add volume on top,” Gangi shares.
An oblong face is long, so “it is best to create width and volume with layers,” he continues.
If you have a square-shaped face, Gangi says, don’t do blunt bangs that will square off your face even more—instead, add soft layers around your cheekbones or jaw to break up the square shape.
A pear-shaped face becomes wider at the jaw, he adds, “so add height and width above the ears to hide the broadness of chin.”
A heart-shaped face, on the other hand, is the complete opposite—the chin is narrow and the forehead is wide, so go for longer lengths with layering starting at chin, adds.
However, “there are always exceptions,” Gangi continues. “Don’t limit yourself—some people can rock all different cuts and look great. Look at people like Madonna or Jennifer Goodwin, Michelle Williams, or Charlize Theron. Those ladies look great in all different lengths and styles.”
