The Best Haircuts for Your Face Shape
Find your most flattering haircut based on these celebrity looks
Whether you're still getting over the emotional scarring of your terrible high school hair days (oh hey, bowl cut), or simply have yet to find a haircut that flatters your face shape, the search for the ideal haircut is hard. It requires attention to detail and knowledge of angles -- things best left to a professional. And while we're grateful for the haircut hairspiration that floods our Pinterest boards, scrolling through haircuts for round faces, oval, square, etc. can go on forever.
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 manes into beautifully fitted frames for their various face shapes. When deciding how to approach a client's haircut, 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 the traditionally attractive 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. It's all about how you frame the face."
