What constitutes a perfect haircut is different for every woman. One particular type of haircut may look good on one type of woman, but not necessarily good on another type. There are two specific features of a woman which determine what the perfect haircut will be for her. These features are her hair texture and the shape of her face. If you can get a haircut which compliments these features, then it will be the best haircut you’ve ever had.
Let’s examine these features closely.
Hair texture can be described in a lot of different ways. Whether your hair is oily, stringy, fine, curly, or straight, the two biggest categories of hair texture are thin and coarse. If you have thin hair, then each strand is very light and narrow. This is more noticeable the longer you grow your hair out. That is why if you have thin hair, you should keep it short. That is the best way to make it appear fuller.
As for those women with coarse hair, it may not be a good idea to cut it short because there will be more curliness and frizziness. Unless that’s the look you’re going for, it may be better to let the hair grow longer. This will weigh it down more and give it an attractive look. But if the length gets to be too much to deal with, you can cut layers within the body of the hair to straighten it out more.
Shape of Face
Think about the shape of your face when you get a haircut. For instance, if you have a long face, you are better off cutting your hair short. Otherwise, longer hair will seem like an extension of your long face. That will not be an attractive look for you. On the other hand, if you have a round face, then you will benefit from longer hair because it will make your face look thinner. But if you were to cut your hair short, the roundness of your face will seem bigger and rounder.
To sum it up, people with big foreheads and wide faces should have long hair and people with small foreheads and narrow faces should have short hair. This is the best formula for balancing out the face in an attractive way.
