Wedding Hairstyles and Facial Shapes

When planning your dream wedding look for the big day, it’s important not just to focus on your skin and age spots but on knowing your facial shape as well to determine the appropriate hairstyle to complement it.  Having the right hairstyle will further bring out the radiance that exudes from within.  How to determine the shape of your face?  Look straight into the mirror and pull back your hair.  With a lip liner, trace on the mirror the outline of your face.  Whatever shape that closely resembles the outline is your face’s shape: oval, round, square, heart.

Here are some wedding hairdos suited for each shape:

1.) Oval – goes well with most hairstyles: soft cascading curls or complicated up do.  Just avoid piling the hair up on top as this will make the face look narrower and longer or heavy fringes that cover the face.

2.) Round – Hair down with long or wavy tresses, off-center part, side swept bangs or high wedding up do’s are great for this facial shape.

3.) Square – To soften the sharp jaw lines of squared face brides, a hairstyle that frames the face with wisps of hair or parting the hair on the side will look great.

4.) Heart – Wispy bangs or hair framing the face looks good on heart shaped brides.  No pulled back hair as this will just emphasize the forehead’s broadness.
