Best hairstyles for a round face

If your face is round, your short hair should cover your ears. Normally short hairstyles are created easily with mouse and a blow dryer. Any round face appears thinner if bangs are styled asymmetrically to one side. You can rake your fingers through the hair to add vertical lines and make it edgier.

As you can see, most short hairstyles for round face have elongating A-line outlines. Practically all bobs, pixies and graded cuts with feathery finish feature side swept bangs which cover fullness of the round face. Take this idea as a basic one when styling your short hair for a super flattering look.

It’s believed that hairstyles with rounded shapes aren’t good for round faces. In reality if you add texture to your short bob, defining edges and occasional tresses, you will come up with a truly fantastic look, extremely chic and complementary for your face shape.

Short retro hairstyles also look charming, let’s say finger waves combed back on the basis of a short bob. Make a side parting and comb wavy bangs to one side like in the photos below for a stunning dramatic look, appropriate for most big events or theme parties.

The perfect cut to suit your face shape

Figuring out your face shape isn’t all that complicated once you understand that there are only six shapes to choose from. Many of us make the mistake of thinking that our faces are “round,” missing some of the subtler angles completely.

To determine your face shape, pull your hair back in a headband or ponytail and analyze what you see in the mirror. Your pretty face should fall within one of six categories.
1. Oval: Forehead may be slightly wider than the chin, and the length of the face is about one and a half times the width.
2. Round: Prominent, rounded cheeks with equal width and length of the face.
3. Square: Prominent jaw and square chin, with forehead and jawline roughly the same width.
4. Oblong: Often confused for the oval face, though an oblong face will have a longer shape that is not as wide as oval — often with a narrow chin.
5. Heart: Wider forehead and cheekbones with a narrow jawline and chin.
6. Diamond: Narrow forehead and jawline with cheekbones at the widest point of the face.

HOW TO PROTECT AND KEEP YOUR HAIR HEALTHY FROM CHLORINE WATER AND THE BEACH

BEFORE GETTING IN:

The easiest and quickest way to protect your hair against chlorine is to wet your hair thoroughly before you go swimming. Wet hair absorbs less chlorine and sea salt as compared to dry hair. Hair is like a sponge, once it absorbs all that it can, nothing can be further absorbed into it. The water will saturate the hair and swell each strand preventing it from soaking up chlorine laden water. However, make sure that you DO NOT shampoo your hair before going into the water as shampoo strips the hair of its natural oils that acts like a barrier between your hair and chlorine.

Apply conditioner or serum or even olive oil or coconut oil all over your hair before stepping into the water. The silicone present in the conditioner creates a barrier between your hair and water keeping chlorine and other chemicals at a bay. A conditioner will also keep your hair tangle free.

Oil creates a barrier between the hair and chlorine, thus reducing the risk of damage. This method is also more effective than the fresh water method. Just a light coating of hair oil will help you seal the moisture and prevent the damage.

AFTER SWIMMING:

Wash your hair thoroughly (at least 5 times) after swimming to remove every single trace of chlorine from your hair. Use a good shampoo for washing the hair as rinsing hair with plain water won’t do much. Also use a clarifying shampoo at least once a week to remove stiff chemicals that get accumulated in the hair. If you don’t have a clarifying you can substitute it with a pinch of baking soda added to your regular shampoo.  And if you swim daily, use a mild shampoo to clean your hair.

Swimming Hairstyles For Long Hair That Are Actually Attainable & Will Keep You Tangle-Free

Making sure long hair is not susceptible to being utterly tangledis all about accounting for all of that length— regular ponytails just won’t cut it. Instead, try a braid or a bun that will secure every hair at the ends. And for added protection, try applying a leave-in cream or conditioner before styling. This can not only help your style hold a little better, but it will also prevent your hair from absorbing as much chlorinated or salt water (which can dry it out and make tangles even worse). The next time you hit the pool or the beach, try one of these simple hairstyles that is perfect for swimming and staving off annoying knots.

Balayage

Balayage

The hair colouring trend du jour, balayage, uses free-hand painting techniques, with your colourist brushing the colour directly onto your hair.

The effect is a more natural, sun-kissed and breezy dye job and can even be used on dark hair. It continues to be the one of the most popular of hair trends because its low-maintenance and effortlessly cool style.

What is balayage?

‘Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint,’ Jack explained. ‘It allows for a natural-looking effect, with subtle, less noticeable regrowth lines thans with regular foil highlights.’

‘The balayage pieces should be very close and fine at the root, leading to a thicker highlight at the ends of the hair. Balayage is applied just on the surface of the section of hair, and not saturated all the way through the section until the very tips, otherwise you would have a streak of colour that would look far too harsh.’

What is the difference between balayage and ombre?

Ombre is the transition to a light shade from a dark shade. Ombre is a lot more extreme and it involves the top end of your hair being completely dark, the middle a inbetweeney kinda colour and the ends completely light.

What colours are used?

You can use whatever colours you want – I usually use one or two. Because the colour is feathered lightly at the root and the ends are saturated with colour, you get a rich, textured look.
