The Chin Length Chops for Your Face Shape

Summer is here – and that means it’s time to opt for a shorter, cuter style than you had during the past year. Shorter cuts are much easier to maintain, keep you cool, and look cute and stylish. Chin length cuts are one of the best routes to take for a short summer style – not too short, not too much length – they’re just about right. Lionesse has the lowdown on chin-length cuts that are perfect for every face shape, and you can check them out in the article below.

The Fringed Bob hairstyle

Heart Shaped Faces – Fringed Bob
Heart shaped faces do look cute with a chin-length cut, but be careful of adding in layers or too short of a style. You don’t want to go above the chin with a heart shaped face as it can make your face appear wider than heart shaped. Also, you should opt for a side part, but stay away from a center part. Adding fringe on top of the hair is a great idea, and wearing your bob in a wavy or curly style is another great option for you.

Bob with side swept bangs hairstyle

Round Faces – Bob with Side Swept Bangs
Those with round faces usually struggle with their face shape and are always looking for ways to elongate their faces. Straight bangs should be avoided as they make the face appear shorter in length. Bobs with side swept bangs are perfect for round faces. Lots of layers will add dimension to the hair, and a side part will help to elongate your face, taking away from the roundness of your face shape if that’s what you would like to go for. It will look classy and very pretty, and is perfect for the summer months. Stay away from curls and waves, as this will make your face appear fuller.

Angled bob with wavy hair style

Oval Faces – Most Versatile; Many Options
The girls with oval faces should count themselves lucky, as this face shape is the most versatile in terms of hair style. You can wear it in a cute angled bob, toss in some waves and side-swept bangs, or nix the bangs completely. You could also wear it straight with some longer sections in the front, and shorter in the back. Or, opt for all one length and add layers to add volume and style. Girls with oval face shapes also look phenomenal with longer hair, and can style it as they see fit because it will all look fantastic!

Side swept bangs hairstyle

Square Faces – Angled Cut with Side Swept Bangs
A cut that offers long, angled sections in the front to frame the face and incorporated side swept bangs will really help to elongate your face and soften your jaw line. It will also look great with some layer, fringe, or waves. Those with square faces can also safely wear curls as the curls will soften your features as well. Anything with whisps in the front and opting for a rounded cut will also suit your jawline well.

    My hair is super long because no matter how short I cut my hair in the past when donating to the Locks of Love, the growing out phase is HORRIBLE! I would love to find a short style that would look great on me because taking care of my hair is such a chore.

    After reading the review, I believe I have a kind of oval face. My face is long. The past few years I have been wearing my hair short. But since reading the review, I think will grow out my hair until and wear a bob cutI

    Wonderful tips for hairstyles to fit different face shapes. My face is more oval and, yes, I could wear my hair in different styles easily when I was younger. I loved wearing it long but feel at age 63 the longer styles drag my face down now. My hair now is cut very much like the oval faced girl above only I have little more layering and shorter wispy bangs.

    These bob haircuts are sooooo cute!!! I have a roundish face and the haircut on the girl with the round face is a cut I would like to get at my next appointment. I’m in my 40’s now though so I hope it would look to “young” for me. I’m getting my hair done soon!!!!

    The models all look so gorgeous with the short hair. I am in love with the idea of short hair especially because my hair is so thick and takes hours to dry, I am just afraid to actually cut it. I wish there was a way to know if I would like it or not, lol. I have a little guy so I could really use the extra time that I waste on my long hair! I just need to get brave enough to do it, lol!!
