Beauty Lesson #3: Hairstyles to Avoid.

Now that you have discovered what your face shape is and what works best for you, let’s take a look at what you should avoid when getting your styled. No matter what your face shape is, there will be hairstyles that don’t look best on you, unless you’re oval, in which case you can pull off anything!

Square: Long straight styles, straight blunt-cut fringes with a center part have nothing to add to a square face. Straight bobs or cuts ending at the jawline should also be avoided. Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Garner are your square-shaped stars.

Round: Avoid jaw-length bobs, especially if your were also blessed with a short neck. Any blunt cut at the chin will accentuate roundness. Celebs with round-shaped faces include Jennifer Hudson, Cameron Diaz, and Renee Zellweger.

Triangular: Center parts bring attention to the center of your face making it appear taller. Also avoid long styles full of volume, this draws attention to your jawline. Minnie Driver and Geena Davis have triangular shapes, also known as pear shaped.

Oblong: Stick-straight bangs with stick-straight sides just flatten and elongate the face. Bangs can work for oblong face shapes, they should be soft and preferably angled to help create the illusion of softness.  Kelly Rowland and Liv Tyler are your oblong-shaped stars.

Oval: Since so many styles work for you, keep in mind your personality and hair texture when going for a new look. Beyonce, Kate Winslet, and Eva Longoria are the ladies that can pull off any hairstyle!

Diamond: Avoid having your hair cut close to the head, which will have a result in the features of the diamond face being exaggerated. Rihanna is your diamond-shaped girl.

Heart: Avoid blunt bobs and super short styles. Your heart-shaped stars are Reese Witherspoon, Christina Ricci, and Jenny McCarty.

Have you ever had a hairstyle that didn’t work for you?
