Haircuts: Simple Guide to finding the right cut for your face

January 26, 2015

We’ve all been there. We see some gorgeous 17 year old model that has an amazing haircut, and we cut the picture out, so we can take it to our stylist, and say triumphantly, ‘I want you to make me look like this!’

Then s/he will look at us and say, ‘yea, I want a unicorn. We all have wants.’ And the snarky bastard would be right. We all have wants, and as we salivate over a perfect coif, we don’t see all the little things that go into making that hair oh-so-perfect.

First, let’s start with the fact that the model is likely 16 years old, and the cruel mistress of puberty has yet to really settle the score with her just yet. Second, this one person has a team – not one, but SEVERAL – of people working to make sure all the flyaways stay down, the hair looks shiny, and every stray hair is whipped into shape, or cut off. And if it is still there, there’s a little computer program called Photoshop that saves the day.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t have an entire team that walks around with me, making sure all my moves result in a perfect pose everywhere I go – and I’m not sure I’d be down with that many shadows or people touching me. I have a germ thing.

And secondly, sometimes, I’m old and tired. I’m ok with my face showing it like real people have faces showing it.

However, it doesn’t mean I’m not a crazy planner when it comes to hair. So without further ado, I want to introduce you to a little illustration that makes the ellimination of certain cuts for face shapes a bit easier.

Click here to check it out. It isn’t an expansive list by any means. But it’ll help get you started. And if you’re one of those souls that could never decide if you’re more of a heart shaped or square faced girl, this helps with distinct measurements of the cabesa.

I’m thrilled with my blunt bob. I wish I did it earlier. If I had someone to say, do it and don’t worry so much, I may have taken the leap sooner. So I say to you all, do it! Take the leap and renew your look!

Have a great one lovelies!
