Ever thought of choosing your hairstyles 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.

While bangs are still very much in style, celebrity hair stylist Chaz Dean says they can be unflattering on a square face.

Just take a look at our latest hair makeover client Jill Jordan.

Jill has naturally long, wavy hair that some women pay a pretty penny for. The challenge is not with the length, but the way it's currently styled. Jill's bangs are closing in her face, shortening the length and making it appear more square.



By simply taking the bangs and sweeping them off to the side, Jill's face goes from square to more of an oval shape. Her eyes and cheekbones become the center of attention and her neck instantly appears longer.

To add balance, Dean also takes the length of her hair up a few inches and cuts more layers into the sides and the crown, helping to create fullness.

Whether Jill chooses to blow dry her hair straight or let it air dry curly, she now has a hairstyle that works with her face shape, rather than against it.

"It's gorgeous!" Jill says.
