If you want to understand which is the right short cut for your face , it is not enough just to browse our photogallery and indicate to your trusted hairdresser the look that seems to be more “inspiring”. In fact, one must try to be particularly severe with oneself, going to find out what the features of one’s face are and, consequently, to identify the cut that can reward the advantages and conceal the disadvantages.
Fortunately, experts in the field are certainly not stingy with advice! A few days ago, for example, we came across the guide of the hairdresser L’Oreal Professionnel, Santino Ciaffoni , who on Vanity Fair recalled some useful interpretative ideas.
The oval face is the most regular and the one that can confer the greatest experimentation skills. “ I would only avoid very short cuts with angles , because they make the face wider, but also the hairstyles too heavy because they cover the features. Better fluffy, wavy and voluminous styling: the waves are the hairstyle that I recommend most because they frame the face, as well as the scaled cuts “- recalls the hairstylist in the well-known magazine.
The square face must be “softened”. Therefore, “ when a face has angular angles, it is better to opt for scaled, long and disheveled cuts, because the broken strands eliminate the hardness of the features and cover the sides of the face . The lateral tuft is also fine, because it makes the forehead and jaw line appear smaller “- suggests the expert, remembering how it is better to avoid geometric cuts and, on the other hand, it is useful to try to give movement. “As for the hairstyles, I recommend curls, waves and soft and unkempt crops (look at the hairstyles for a neo romantic look), with free strands that go beyond the jaw.”
The heart-shaped face is a face that has well-structured cheekbones, a broad forehead and a pointed chin. “ The ideal length is behind or longer and the appropriate styling is wavy, full and voluminous . The perfect cut is a full bob at the height of the chin and the perfect hairstyle is a semi-crop with tufts that fall on the cheekbones and jaws. Crests are to be avoided “- the expert still underlines, instead advising to evaluate thin fringes with tufts or side hairstyles.

Whoever has a round face will have to try to create the right verticality. Therefore, “I would avoid well-defined fringes, severe and structured cuts and very tightly pulled crops . I recommend scaled cuts with very irregular tufts to be dropped on the facial features to move and take it off and light fringes, paraded and messy “. And what do you think?
