Perfect Haircut for My Face

Having coarse hair may present a styling challenge for some women. Add a long face shape to those textured locks and you could find yourself stumped on how to create the most gorgeous and flattering look.

That was the problem for our latest hair makeover client, Gena Foster, who has beautiful, natural ringlets.



While celebrity hair stylist, Shirlena Allen, loves Gina's hair and its color, she believes it does nothing for her face shape.

"I'm a little adventurous and want to get something different," says Gina.

The first step to Gina's "adventurous" new hairstyle is to straighten her strands. Allen then shapes her hair to enhance her facial structure and bring balance to her features. Finally, wispy bangs are added to conceal her forehead -- which was making her face appear longer.
