Hairstyling Do’s and Don’ts for Your Face Shape



Have you ever perused through a magazine and stumbled across a hairstyle that looks absolutely stunning? And then decided that is THE cut for you? And then cried your eyes out after the stylist gave you the precise cut that you requested? Of course you have – we all have! Before you blame the stylist, (with the exception of a woman that we’ll refer to as Edwina Scissorhands), you need to understand that educating yourself is a good way to get the haircut and hairstyle that looks good on you. 

Consider this, you know your body type and take that into account when shopping. Why? Because you know that certain materials and styles aren’t flattering for your body type. The same rule goes for getting the most flattering cut for you. Your face shape plays a big role in choosing the best a hair cut! Cutler/Redken Salon Senior Stylist, Kelsy Osterman, shares her tips for determining your face shape, and how to highlight your features accordingly.

Face Shape Analysis: Pull your hair away from your face into a ponytail. Then, standing in front of a mirror look at the width of your forehead, cheeks and jaw. Match your dimensions to the below.




Round: Forehead, cheeks and jaw are the same width, without a pronounced jaw line.

  • Do - Elongate a round face with a lengthening cut and sharp angles.
  • Do - Even out your proportions and slim cheeks with layers that start at least two inches below the jaw.
  • Don’t - Cut blunt fringe (bangs) that mimics the roundness of the face.





Triangle: Forehead width is narrower than jaw width.

  • Do - Soften this bold shape by cutting layers fuller through the top and taper towards the jaw.
  • Do - Backcomb hair near the roots to achieve volume if you have fine hair.
  • Don’t - Cut a blunt bob ending near the jaw line, it will accentuate jaw width.




Square: Four widest points on the face are the outer corners of the forehead and jaw. These points are parallel.

  • Do - Tone down sharp angles by cutting layers or fringe that start near the eyes/cheekbone and cascade downward.
  • Do - Work a trendy, short lob with a few layers to slim down the jaw.
  • Don’t - Blunt layers at the jaw line or forehead, which widen and square off the face.




Diamond: Cheekbones are the most dominant feature, while forehead and jaw are narrower.

  • Do - Create the illusion of more proportion by cutting layers that stop near the jaw, which adds width and dimension.
  • Do - Add balance by cutting shorter bangs to bring the eye to the forehead.
  • Don’t - Cut soft, cascading fringe that lands near the cheekbone, bringing the eye to that feature.

Summer Tresses Treatment from Celeb Stylist Felix Fischer

Courtesy Felix Fischer IG

As we were stating yesterday, the things this weather will do to our hair! Not to mention the beach, the pool, the summer sun, and all of the other summertime activities. By the end of a really great weekend, our hair has a bonafide hangover!

But, we recently came across an amazing treatment from celebrity hairstylist Felix Fischer. Felix has coiffed the likes of Penelope Cruz, Ashley Graham, J.Lo, Gigi Hadid and more, so we thought that his restorative Treatment Pony was very much worth a try. 

The Treatment Pony not only works wonders for our summer damage hair, we know that it’ll be amazing for winter too! The best part of this treatment -- other than gorgeous hair -- it can be done any time of day!





Felix’s Treatment Pony:

Step One: First, brush hair out and add your favorite hair mask to the entire head, like the evolis Professional PROMOTE Treatment Mask. (TME Favorite)

Step Two: Place hair on top of head and brush into a simple high ponytail, securing with a gentle hair elastic.

Step Three: Heat up a quarter inch hair wand (try hot tools). Take 1-inch sections of hair from the pony and wrap around the wand, leaving out the ends. Keep going until whole ponytail is curled.

Step Four: Apply Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to curls and shake up/rough them up for added volume and texture.

Step Five: Go about your business and enjoy amazing hair!
