Your hair can be your perfect tiara if you embrace it in the right manner. Apart from that, it is truly imperative to know what kind of haircut suits your face shape and highlights the best features-thus increasing the glam quotient instantly, irrespective of what you wear!
Normally, most of us step into the salon and ask the stylist to give us the chicest haircut of the season. This is one big mistake that most of us commit because just getting a new celebrity haircut which is trending in this season won’t necessarily bring out the best of your unique features.
The first step is to determine the face shape because honestly, almost every woman out there thinks that she has a round face, while in reality, only a very small percentage of people have a typical round face.
So, what you can do to figure out your face shape is to just stand in front of the mirror with a dry erase marker and draw the outline of your face. While doing so you need to make sure that your hair is tied back really well with no bangs falling on your face.
So, here is a list of haircuts which are the most flattering for a particular face shape
1)ROUND AND SQUARE So, obviously, no one has a symmetrical round perfect face- but that just means that your jaw is about the same width as your forehead, and your cheeks don’t have a real definition. In the case of a square face shape, the jaw is squarish and at the top, the forehead is also pretty broad but not necessarily long.
HAIRCUT FOR ROUND
Girls with this face shape can rock short hairstyles like a bob or a lob as because when you will be wearing your hair down, it would actually slash off each side of your face, so you are left with a narrow oval looking face that is actually ideal.
Never go above the jawline if you are planning to chop off your mane because that way you will be exposing your jaw which would resultantly exaggerate your round face cut. In addition, you should also avoid layers coming at the face. Instead, go for layers which are away from your face as it would really flatter your features.

HAIRCUT FOR SQUARE-
What you want to avoid are cuts like the pixie cut or anything which is really short, because that way you will be just adding more volume to the top and that would simply make the top section look even boxier. So, it is recommended that you go for waves and also make a side partition to break up that symmetry. When it comes to the length, you should stay away from the jaw and keep it on the longer side.

2) HEART AND DIAMOND
Both of these face shapes have a pretty narrow slim jaw.
The only difference is that in the case of diamond face shape the forehead tapers up a bit too much thus making your cheekbones the widest part of your face and hence creating the diamond effect.
The heart shape, on the other hand, has an angled kind of pointier chin and the rest is basically oval, however, the jaw is slightly slimmer than the forehead.
HAIRCUT FOR HEART-
The only thing that you want to avoid is adding too much of volume on the top or haircuts that kind of end around the ear because that way you will be exaggerating your petite part and hence your chin will end up looking pointier and smaller.
Thus, what you need to do is “create balance” so try keeping your hair long with some sassy waves. Also, layers coming at the face looks very flattering on girls with the heart shaped face.

HAIRCUT FOR DIAMOND
What you want to avoid is side swept bangs as you already have a tapered chin and forehead. So, what you should do is to add volume to the top, for example, you can go for a very voluminous blowoutas it would add the needed fullness to your face.
Coming to the hair length, it can be anything below the chin, however, long hair would really suit this face shape.
