Q: I'm wondering what type of haircut would suit my face shape.
I'd like to keep my hair long, but I've been thinking about getting bangs. However, I have a round face, so I'm not sure if they will look good on me.
What do you think would suit me? Thank you! — Yasmeen
A: Yasmeen, you actually don't have a round face. You have a heart-shaped face.
For your face shape, curtain bangs will suit you best. A lot of celebrities have these now—they're quite pretty and can be very sexy.
To get this look, your bangs should be cut straight across, from cheek to cheek, and they should hover just above the lashes.
You can wear them with your hair long, like it is now, but make sure to ask your hairstylist for some soft-blunt layering, starting from the collarbones. Right now, your cut is too blunt.
For a bigger change, you could take up the length a bit, to as high as your collarbones.
The bangs will also frame your face beautifully if you wear your hair up.
Since your hair is curly, you will have to put in some work to achieve this. You will have to blow dry your bangs and flat iron them a little.
For product, use a bit of liquid silicone, such as Kérastase Oléo-Relax Soin Lissant Disciplinant.
Liquid silicone doesn't allow the hair to bounce up so much. It keeps the hair a little flatter and protects against the humidity or the elements. It also creates some shine.
So that will be helpful for the bangs. The rest of your hair has a frizzy texture because you're not moisturizing enough.
You need to be using hydrating haircare products as well as a good moisturizing mask (such as Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral) at least once a week.
You didn't ask about your colour, but I think it is too dark for you. It's too black for your face. You need to be more on the mocha side, at least one shade lighter.
