The best face slimming hairstyles
A good haircut can not only take years off your face, it can drop 10kgs from it! Here’s how your locks can give you an instant facelift.
Long straight hair with lots of weight in the front can drag features down, which can be ageing and draw attention to double chins. Flattering, face-framing layers are what you need to ask your stylist for, they’ll elongate your neck and help define features. When curling long wavy hair, make sure to direct curls away from your face as this will highlight your bone structure and accentuate cheekbones.
Side partings are your best friend, as are texture and movement. Bobs are super on-trend, but make sure the layers around the face are long, which will sharpen your jawline. A heavy, fringe can make your face look round so go for whispy bangs.
Modern crops can definitely look fantastic on round faces. The key is to make sure the style is short and textured on top, which will balance out features.
When in doubt, tie it up! A tall topknot ontop of your head adds length to the face and draws attention upwards, like an optical illusion. A severely pulled back ponytail can accentuate fuller faces, loosely tied up styles with volume at the crown and pieces pulled down is flattering.
