Updo Tips – Face Types

May 31, 2010

Prom and Wedding Glamour

The Secret to choosing the perfect updo is matching your hair style to your face shape.

 If you have an oval face you can pull off a variety of hair styles. Your features are well-balanced and almost every style can be achieved to look great on an oval face.

Round shaped faces tend to be round at the cheeks and have a circular form. 

Updos for Round faces: Any hair style that adds focus to your crown works best. A French twist with curls piled on top looks very nice. As long as you have a focal point such as curls on top or tussled bangs to the side, this will draw attention away from the roundness of  your face. Use off centre parts, as this will draw the eye to one side of the face and throw off the roundness.  Styles to avoid:

  •  Slick back styles without hair touching your face.
  • Do not add width around the sides of your face, this will make the face appear to be wider than normal.
  • Straight, flat bangs will only shorten your face. Try tussled or side bangs
