Communicating With Your Stylist:
Receiving the perfect haircut is all about the communication. You talk. The stylist listens and then offers leadership, knowledge, expertise and styling options. Think about the following points when talking with your stylist.
1) What do you like best about your hair?
2) How much time do you want to spend on your hair?
3) What don't you like about your hair? What problems need to be addressed?
4) Do you have any parameters about your style?
5) Do you have any length considerations?
6) Do you have pictures to help accurately describe your desired style?
Round Face This face shape has about the same width as length. If you have a round face, you want to elongate the face and give it more definition. Longer lengths (below the chin) with face framing layers work great. A deep side part also creates a slimming illusion.
Heart Face This face is wider at the forehead and narrower at the chin and jaw. A deep side part with a chin length cut balances the face shape. Keep the style soft and add long layers around the face. Small bangs also provide a nice dimension
Oval Face This face shape is well proportioned – the length is about one and a half times the width and can wear almost any hair style.
Square Face This face is defined by wide cheekbones, a broad forehead and a wide jaw line. Off center parts and face framing layers work wonders with the facial shape. Rounder bangs help to soften the edges, too.
Pear Face This face is narrow at the forehead and wider at the chin and jaw. A haircut with width and height balances this face shape. Adding volume to the crown can really bring attention to the eyes.
Long Face This face has a length longer than the width. Shorter, chin length hair styles with a wide bang help add necessary width to an elongated face.
Large Nose Keep hair longer, adding soft layers around the sides and on top of the head, paired with a soft bang.
Wide Forehead Bangs cut short enough to balance the width of the face is a great suggestion for a wide forehead.
Narrow Forehead No bangs are necessary; however, if you have bangs, we suggest a bang that is cut back somewhat to help extend the width of the forehead.
