One of the easiest ways to change your look is switching how you part your hair. While many of us find a natural part and stick with it for years, have you ever wondered if that style is really the most flattering for your face-shape? Experimenting with a fresh comb-created angle will give you a chance to find the ideal balance to highlight your features. But the best part? It’s an instantly gratifying transformation. Let’s begin!
Heart-shaped faces tend to be wider in the cheeks. A middle part complements this shape, but only if you have long hair. If you have short hair or too many layers around the face, it can have the reverse effect. That’s because the cropped fringe will bring the focus to the wider area of your face. A side part will also work by allowing hair to covering the larger forehead and cheek area and make the face look thinner.
For circle shaped faces, use a deep side part to showcase your strongest side. Don’t know which side is your best? Use a blank piece of paper to cover half of you face while looking in a mirror. Then switch sides. Whichever half you prefer the most wins! Round faces need a curtain of hair to lengthen the shape and balance the features.
Square faces should enhance a deep side part that will soften the forehead and jaw line. The long layers create a rounded oval by falling diagonally across the face and hiding harsher angles. The ideal place to start your deep part is directly above the arch in your eyebrows.
People with oval faces have it the easiest! They can pull off any part, any side, any way, on any style. So why not try them all? Experiment with sides and angles for a mini makeover each day! Or try creating a youthful zigzag part.
