In order to find the perfect hair style to fit your face, the first thing you want to do is realize what kind of face shape you have. According to beauty.about.com there is long, square, round, heart-shaped, and oval face shapes.

Long Shaped Faces

If you have a long face, it is best that you have some body in your hair and that will add width to your face. Curls or waves and/or a shoulder length cut, is a good hairstyle that doesn’t elongate the face.

Straight bangs are also great for long face shapes!

Oval faces can pull off that super short pixy look as well as bobs and shoulder length hair.

If you have a wider forehead, side swooped bangs are excellent. Also long bobs, long waves, and shoulder length hair looks good on this kind of  heart shaped loving face.

Long straight hair looks great on round faces because it makes the face look longer.

Short hair can be a problem and make your face look chubby, but with the right kind of hair cut, ( like the one above) round faces can also get away with a little snip here or there.
