The perfect hairstyle is one that matches the best features of your face. This can only happen taking into consideration the shape of the face. The ideal cut and the perfect facial shape are ones that result in the most flattering of combinations.
The first step is to determine the kind of face that you have. An oval shaped face is one that is curved and has a forehead and jaw of the same width. A circular face with the same width results in a round face. A square shaped face is one that has a broad and well defined forehead and an angular jaw line. A triangular face is one that has narrow cheekbones and forehead.
Once you have ascertained the kind of face shape that you have you can decide on which hairstyle is the most apt for you. The best face shape is an oval one as almost all possible hairstyles look good on such a face. The well balanced features of such a face can look equally nice either with long or short hair. The one thing that oval shaped faces should avoid is bangs and fringes as this will weigh the face down.
If you have a round face then the kind of hairstyle that will suit you is something that is off your face and high like an updo or a quiff. The hairstyle that will not suit this kind of a face is one that has a fringe or bangs that end at the chin.
A heart shaped face needs a haircut that is short and reaches the chin to offset the jaw line. A short shaggy cut or hair drawn away from the face and tendrils framing the face look good for this kind of a face.
