Face shapes and best suited haircuts


What face shape do you have? 

What haircut suits you best?


It is time for the boring technical stuff, but this is what could save you from a disastrous haircut and give you the best hair style you have ever had.



First we need to determine what face shape you actually have, this is dependent on the width of your jawline, forehead and cheekbones.

Then we tailor a cut to balance prominent facial features.

Check out our Pinterest boards of ideas for each face shape, just click the title of each shape.

Face gracefully tapers towards chin
Elongated features from forehead to chin
Some have prominent chins
