Ever thought of choosing your hairstyle by face shape? The right haircut and hairstyle can draw attention to your best facial features, and shift attention from anything you want to disguise. In our video series, The Perfect Haircut for Your Face Shape, we explore the styles that look best on round, oval, square, long, and heart shaped faces.

Think you can't add volume to your hair if you have a round face? Well, you can!

Meet Heather -- a beautiful brunette with naturally curly hair -- who normally wears her strands flat because she believes it makes her face appear rounder. "My hair has a mind of its own," she says.

But according to celebrity hairstylist Andy Lecompte, curly hair can -- and should -- have lots of volume to play up its natural texture.




Lecompte gave Heather's limp locks a boost by cutting the ends and adding clip-in hair extensions for volume. He then blow-dried her hair with a diffuser to enhance her curls and reduce frizz. To finish, Lecompte used a spiral wave curling iron to create a sleek and polished look.

"I think it's amazing!" says Heather about her new face-slimming hairdo.
