Our Toronto hair salons explain that each of us has a specific face shape that dictates which styles will look best on us. You can identify your face shape—round, oval, square or long—by looking directly into the bathroom mirror and tracing your reflection with a grease pencil.
Our Richmond Hill hair salons and Oakville day spas explain that if your face is round, you want to minimize fullness, and the most flattering styles will keep hair off your face. Our Toronto day spas add that this will emphasize your cheekbones, jaw line and eyes. You can wear long or short hair, but it’s often advisable to add layers to create volume at the top of your head.
Our Thornhill day spas explain that if you have an oval face shape, you can go short or long, but keep your hair an even length. Too many layers create excessive volume. Oval faces tend to be on the small side, and high-volume hair can be overpowering. Long bangs are generally flattering.
Our Mississauga hair salons and Toronto hair stylists both agree that if you have a long face, avoid the popular bob hairstyle, which draws attention to facial length. Also stay away from short bangs and excess volume on top. You can create volume on the sides with a layered cut, which will produce the illusion of fullness.
Out Richmond Hill hair salons add the following tip for those with square faces – do not cut your hair too short. Layers, accompanied by volume on the top and sides, soften your look. Length in the back generally works, as do bangs—as long as they’re soft and subtle.
If you are not sure go see a pro. Your stylists will show you different cuts. Our Toronto day spas add the following tip- Pay close attention to how much care and maintenance each style requires. A good stylist should be asking you how much time you have to maintain your new cut. Some styles take more care than others.
Lastly, don’t try to be cool – And sometimes a little bit of knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge at all. Stylists have their own vocabulary and lingo, and their definition of “choppy,” “chunky” or “one layer” may mean an entirely different concept to you. To avoid language barriers and translation troubles, tell the stylist in your own words. Our Toronto hair salons explain that many clients bring in photos of what they want or what they don’t want. You may like one model’s bangs and another model’s layers, so multiple pictures also help communicate your desires. The more info you provide the better your Mississauga hair stylist can match what you are looking for or at least offer their opinion.
We hope this blog explains some tips on what you should be doing. But remember, it’s your hair so have fun and enjoy it.
