It requires attention to detail and knowledge of angles -- things best left to a professional.

That's where hairstylist extraordinaire, Marco Pelusi comes in. Celebrity clients like George Clooney and Jennifer O'Dell put their trust in Pelusi's hands (literally), as he transforms their hair into beautifully fitted frames for their various face shapes. When deciding how to approach a client's hairstyle, Pelusi offers this insight: "Face shape, body shape, facial features and jawline -- to name a few -- are all important factors when deciding what type of haircut is going to look best on a client," he says. "It's important that your stylist enhances your positive features and softens the traditionally 'negative' ones" (aka round cheeks, small chin, etc.).
And while you'd think everyone would be walking around with angular haircuts to emphasize features like cheekbones and jawlines, Pelusi says when it comes to face shapes there are definite rules. "Some face shapes are easier to work with than others," he confesses. "But every face shape is beautiful in its own way, when catered to properly [with the right haircut]. It's all about how you frame the face."
