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.

Changing the shape of your hair can have a dramatic effect on your look -- and sometimes that's just a few snips away!

Our latest makeover client Lindsey Mixon comes to celebrity hairstylist Shirlena Allen with beautiful, natural ringlets. But Lindsey says her strands tend to flair out at the bottom, creating a triangular-shaped 'do that's unflattering to her heart-shaped face.



To create a more balanced silhouette, Allen trims her hair, adds textured layers at the crown, and softens Lindsey's face with long, sweeping bangs.

Even without losing a lot of length, Lindsey looks like a younger, fresher version of herself.
