There’s no absolute right or wrong, but choosing the perfect haircut can be tricky. There are several things to consider.
Find a style that’s right for the shape of your face. For example, a pixie, tousled shag, or layered bob flatter a woman’s round face while blunt-cut bangs complement a heart-shaped face. Men with round faces look strong-jawed with hair shorter on the sides and longer on top. The web has tons of good information, and many sites and apps allow you to upload your photo to preview different looks.
Choose a style for your hair type. Is your hair thick or thin? Curly or straight? Coarse or silky? Keep these qualities in mind. You can find a product that changes your hair’s natural characteristics or choose a cut that works with them.
Consider the occasion. A serious job requires serious hair. An evening on the town is special, and you might want a hairdo appropriate for the occasion.
Choose the style you can live with. If you’re happy blowing, fluffing, and taking your time, your options are much broader than they are if you’re looking for a wash-and-wear do.
