The way you wear your hair can affect the appearance of your features. Your personal style will always be a factor in the hairstyles you choose. The right hairstyle makes the most of your best qualities.
Long styles work with any hair type – straight, wavy, or curly – but looks best if locks are medium-textured or thick. Skip the lengthy look if you have fine hair (it tends to go straggly) or a long, narrow face.
Short hairdos look great with all face shapes. It is best for fine or medium hair that’s straight to slightly wavy. If you have curly hair, a lot of it, opt for a longer style – a short cut could look puffy.
Fringes: The length of your fringes influence the appearance of your forehead. Short fringes make the distance between eyebrows and hairline look longer than it is. Long ones make your forehead look shorter and some times wider. Fringes that are long at the temples and curve to a shorter length across your forehead will highlight your eyes and make cheekbones broader.
Partings: Worn straight down the center add width to your brow. Slightly off-center parts and side parts make your forehead seem narrower. Low side parts on your head broaden your forehead.
Hair pulled back: This style highlights your jaw line, elongates and thins your neck. Drawing your hair over the top of your ears will make your ears look smaller and closer to your head.
Fullness: Fullness at the crown tends to make your face look longer. It adds width to your cheeks and brow. Fullness at your jaw line or below will broaden your lower face. Full hair brushed up and away from your face at your temples gives a lift from your face at your temples gives a lift to your cheekbones and makes your eyes look wider.
Ringlets: Wisps of wavy or curly hair that fall from a pulled -up hairstyle soften the outer edge of your face and add length to your neck. Tendrils can soften the severity of a hair style pulled back from your face.
TO CREATE CURLS
Wash hair and allow to air-dry until just damp. Starting at your forehead, wrap a two-inch section of hair around your second and third fingers, then slide fingers out and secure loop to scalp with a bobby pin. Proceed in this manner all over head. Either sleep with pin curls in place or leave them on until hair is completely dry. Then undo and tousle tresses with fingers.
For a curl free mane
Comb a styling lotion through damp hair and gather it into a tight, low ponytail at the nape. Twist tail loosely and wrap it around itself, securing ends to scalp with hair pins. Leave in until hair is no longer wet. Undo to reveal twist-free mane. (If your hair is short, follow the above steps, but slick hair back with a wide headband and skip the twist).
