Pick the right style to sizzle

What to look for in a hairstyle
In hairstyling, there is no such thing as “one style fits all”. Every woman is unique and special in her looks. A hair style is designed to benefit the face shape, body relate to the lifestyle. While selecting your hairstyle, there are a few principles to remember. They can help you to choose a style that is more becoming for you.

Head shapes
Hair designers are often asked questions about head shapes and their proportions to hairstyling. Keeping in mind the below mentioned relationship to body height and styles, the following considerations can give the illusion of the classic oval shape face.
Generally, height or fullness is added to areas that fall short. Closeness is created where the arc is extended. In this manner, a balanced look is achieved. It is important to increase or decrease the right amount of hair needed to create the proper hair-face relationship and to adapt the hairstyle to the general shape.

Style and balance
Keep in mind that the normal proportion of head size to total height is measured at 7 ½ heads of height. Regardless of height, the head can be put in proportion with the body by controlling the size of the head form. Whatever the fashion mode of the day, hair should reflect its proper proportion in relationship to the body. To achieve the proper form, consideration must be given to the density, texture, and weight of the hair and the process it must undergo.

What to look for in a hairstyle
Although only you, with your individual taste and preference, can dictate the style you want, a consultation with your professional hairstylist is highly recommended. However, the finished product should be attractive, healthy looking and easy to care for.

*Triangular face: The triangular face usually displays a jaw line that is somewhat pointed. In order to balance and detract, widen silhouette in symmetrical (balanced) form, and ease more hair onto the face to correct the irregularities. 

*Square face: If the face or jaw is square, add height in the centre of the style to minimise the squareness. Add slight width to further chance of a square silhouette in the upper part of the style.

*Long face: In dealing with length in the facial structure asymmetry (unbalanced form) will detract from length of the face when the line of vision moves horizontally rather than vertically. Do not add height, but do add some hair on the forehead to aid in creating a pleasing shape.

*Round Face: A round face can be improved by moving hair on the face to break the round hairline growth. Hair on the forehead should move horizontally to contrast the rounded chin line.

It is with the aid of proper cosmetics and through the careful placement and proportion of hair fashions that facial irregularities are minimised so that they do not become dominant characteristics.

Every face has some imperfections. The best part is that most of these imperfections can be corrected by styling your hair well. Here are a few suggestions to deal with some of the common irregularities of face.

Receding forehead and chin
If the forehead and chin recede, fullness over the forehead creates balance with the nose line and conceals the extreme slope.

Jaw line
If the jaw line is long, creating a great deal of facial area, it must be balanced with the proper positioning of hair. Lower the side-hair motions on to the face to decrease the facial area in view.

Small forehead
Design a style with hair off the face and create height in the style. A short haircut in front will give the forehead a higher look.
Ears that stick out
Avoid a short hairstyle. Design hair that slightly covers the ears and masks the problem entirely. In creating a hairstyle, it is important to remember the objectives, i.e. to ovalise the face shape.
