Whatever your hairstyling needs, our licensed and experienced Chicago hair stylists will be sure to advise you on any products or techniques that they think you will benefit from. The following is some information that you may feel is useful to examine prior to booking your hairstyling consultation.
Consider Your Face Shape
Oval faces are longer and slightly more slender than their round faced counterparts. Oval faces usually have larger foreheads big enough to support bangs. Oval face shapes benefit greatly from layers, as this breaks up the look of the face and adds texture and lift. Some famous people with oval faces are Charlize Theron and Jessica Alba.
Square faces are gorgeous, angular faces with prominent jawlines. Two Celebrities with square faces are Salma Hayek and Olivia Wilde. Our Chicago clients with square faces look fantastic with short, blunt bangs which draw attention to the eyes and accentuate the bone structure. Pixie hairstyles are also very flattering for square faces. A celebrity that rocked this look was Natalie Portman.
Round face shapes are youthful, cheerful and attractive. The bone structure is usually hidden behind bigger cheeks that resemble a child’s. Two celebrities with round faces are Kirsten Dunst and Selena Gomez. Our Chicago hairstylists think that these face shapes look great with a straight and long to medium length hairstyle that elongates the face and draws attention to the bone structure and the eyes.
A heart shaped face is blessed with gorgeous bone structure that highlights the eyes, cheekbones and chin as the focal point. Two famous celebrities with this type of face shape are Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson. Our Chicago hairstylists always suggest that our clients with heart shaped faces resist from getting bangs as this distracts from their gorgeous natural bone structure.
Diamond face shapes taper at the forehead and the chin, and extend at the cheekbones. Halle Berry is a famous actress with a gorgeous diamond face shape. These face shapes suit angular hairstyles that are shorter and show off their bone structure.
