Determine Your Face Shape

Finding your face shape will help you and your stylist determine the most flattering style for your hair. Here are some instructions to help you find whether your face is round, square, oval or heart shape.

Round:  The length from your hairline to your chin divided by 3 is no longer than the length from the tip of your nose to your chin.

Square:  The width of your forehead from temple to temple is equal to the width of your jaw ear to ear. 

Oval:  The length from your hairline to your chin divided by 3 is shorter than the length from the tip of your nose to your chin.

Heart: The width of your forehead from temple to temple is longer than the width of your jaw from ear to ear.

The Beautiful BOB Cut is the Most Sought-after Look for All Face Shapes              

It is so versatile that just changing the part or styling in waves makes it look totally different. The swinging style creates movement in the hair strands creating a thicker look in the hair.

Considering Bangs?
Not all bangs are created equal. There are so many variations on styles and the most flattering ones will be what goes with your face shape.  For example, voluminous bangs mask a wide far head and wispy bangs soften your look. They are anti-aging.  If you don’t shampoo your hair every day I suggest using some dry shampoo on your bangs in the morning.  This will help to absorb oils to freshen them up a bit.

Now you have a perfect style.  What will you style your hair with?

 A heated brush with ceramic plates helps to reduce static with brush-like bristles creating smooth strands and shine resulting in beautiful sleek hair.

A blow drying brush ensures you get the lift you need at the roots with one hand and a blast of heat to create volume.
