The 7 most common Face Shapes
One of the many things a Hair Stylist considers during a consultation with you will be your face shape. The most complimentary haircuts are achieved by understanding the guidelines on face shapes. In theory these guidelines help by balancing your facial features with shapes, angles and weight lines that will focus on your very best features and disguise others by slimming, lengthening or shortening, softening, etc.
Historically the ideals of beauty have changed with each passing decade. While the Oval is considered the most ideal face shape (it is scientifically proven that symmetry = beauty), it is misleading because all of the face shapes have their own allure and beauty. Just look at the list of the female celebrities to the right and you will agree that each and every one are unique and beautiful!
Hairline trivia: Marilyn Monroe altered her 'heart' shaped hairline dramatically by shaving at least an inch including a widows peak to create a more 'perfect' oval shaped hairline to achieve her now infamous image.
