The Best Cut for Your Face Shape

We should tell you right up front that the title of this post is misleading. How? We're glad you asked: there is no best cut for your face shape. What do we mean by that? How about you stop asking so many questions and let us explain.

Hairstylists with wisdom and experience will tell you that the shape of your face is only one of many factors in determining the best and most flattering cut for you. If you came into Salon 401 and asked us, "What's the best cut for a round face?", we'd answer your question with several of our own. What do you love about your hair? What do you hate about your hair? What are your daily hair care routines? What kind of statement are you looking to make with your style? And there are so many more factors as well: the texture of your hair, the wave pattern, how often and extensively you've had it colored, maybe you have a cowlick, maybe you have some specific facial features you're looking to accentuate. These are the nitty-gritty details that good hairstylists love because they let you know how the hair should be styled.

This post is just a long way of saying that there is no precise formula to determine the best cut for your face shape. And that's because your cut should flatter more than just the shape of your face-it should flatter all of you. So the next time you come in to the salon, don't worry about what hairstyle works best with a triangle shaped face, worry about what hairstyle works best with YOUR triangle shaped face.
