Round faces: Try textured, layered cuts
"A round face looks best with a very textured and layered cut," says celebrity stylist Paul Labrecque. Layers styled into the face helps create thinness, he explains, and they can do this even when your hair is worn up loosely. For spring, Labrecque suggests getting a shoulder-length cut that has lots of internal layers to help frame the face.

Oval faces: Rock short, gamine cuts
"Oval faces look great with short, gamine cuts, especially ones that are very fringy and soft," Labrecque tells TotalBeauty. And while this symmetrical face shape can pull off almost any cut, Labrecque suggests celebrating the warmer weather with a bang — aka a major chop.

Heart-shaped faces: Try face-framing layers
"A heart-shaped face looks great with shorter face-framing layers or a soft side bang," says Jenna Mast, a hairdresser at Fox & Jane Salon. Since the width is in the cheek area, she says that adding interest below the cheekbone will enhance the face shape.

Square faces: It's all about lobs
"A low-maintenance lob is a go-to cut this spring for square face shapes," says Amika professional educator Brittney Ounanian. Light layers of differing lengths create movement and help to form a rounded look around the jawline, she explains.
