Choosing the Correct Hairstyle And Hair Colour For Your Face Shape

We live in an era where we see new haircuts and hair colours daily. Choosing the right hairstyle or colour for you can be challenging with many options. This Rixon article will go through the steps you need to consider your face shape. By understanding how your face shape influences your look, learning about hair colours and seeing how different styles compliment different face shapes, you'll find it a lot easier! Rixon Hair Salon Geelong is here to help.

How to Choose the Right Hair Style

There are so many hairstyles and colours to choose from these days. How do you know which one is right for you? The key is to find a style that compliments your face shape. Here are a few tips on choosing the correct hairstyle and hair colour for your face shape.

If you have a round face, the best hairstyles add length and definition to your face. Think of long, sleek styles or waves. As for hair colour, go for hues that will brighten up your complexions, like honey or golden blonde.

For those with a heart-shaped face, focus on styles that emphasise the width of your forehead while downplaying the narrowness of your chin. Try a soft bob or loose curls. And when it comes to colour, go lighter at the forehead and darker at the chin for a slimming effect.

Square-faced gals should go for styles that soften their angular features. Think: of wispy bangs, tousled waves, or even a pixie cut. As for hair colour, opt for shades that brighten up your complexions, like honey or platinum blonde.

Tips for Determining your Face Shape

Remember a few things when choosing the right hairstyle and hair colour for your face shape. First, determine what your face shape is. You can do this by looking at yourself in the mirror and pulling your hair away from your face. Talk to one of Rixons' professionals. Once you have determined your face shape, you can start to look at hairstyles that will complement it.

Here are a Few Rixon Tips for Choosing the Right Hairstyle and Colour for Your Face Shape

If you have an oval-shaped face: Oval faces are considered the "ideal" face shape, as they are well-proportioned and symmetrical, which means that pretty much any hairstyle will look good on you! When it comes to hair colour, you can go with just about anything – from natural shades to bolder colours.

If you have a round-shaped face: Round faces are characterised by full cheeks and a wide jawline. When choosing a hairstyle, you want to avoid anything that will add width to your face. Instead, opt for styles that help elongate your face, such as a bob or long, straight layers. 

Rixon Hair Colour Ideas for Different Face Shapes

Not sure what hair colour will suit your face shape? Don't worry; we've got you covered. Read on for our guide to the best hair colours for different face shapes.

Oval: If you have an oval face shape, you're lucky - almost any hair colour will suit you. If you want to play up your natural beauty, try a hair colour close to your natural shade. But if you're feeling adventurous, experiment with a bolder hue.

Square: If you have a square face shape, your best bet is to go for a hair colour that softens your features. Blonde shades are always a good choice, but try a rich brunette shade if you want something more dramatic.

Round: If you have a round face shape, you'll want to choose a hair colour that helps to elongate your face. Darker shades are usually best for this, but feel free to experiment with different colours to see what works best for you.

Heart: If you have a heart-shaped face, you'll want to choose a hair colour that accentuates your best features. Try highlights around your face to give the illusion of wider cheeks, or smoke your eyes with a rich, dark colour to draw more focus there. 

Thick hair: If you have thick hair, you'll also want to emphasise your face by choosing bright and bold colours. 

Fine-haired ladies should typically stay away from in-your-face highlights or top knots. 

Bold: Bold women look great against equally bold colours, like magenta highlights or a deep sea blue shade.

Whichever colour you choose for summer, keep it light and fun!
