We love how short hair looks but we know how scary it can be to make the change. One bad experience can ruin the look and scar a woman for life; which is why we are here to help prove that short hair does not have to be a traumatic experience, but a liberating one. Anyone can rock short hair, as long it is the right cut for the right shape.
Heart Shaped Face
Heart shaped faces are known for their delicate pointed chins and wide hairlines. Jennifer Aniston, Kourtney Kardashian, and Reese Witherspoon are all examples of women who have a heart shaped face. Heart shaped faces look best when sporting “the lob”. The best part about this style is it is an easy transition from long to short hair. We love how easy the lob is to style whether it is a blunted lob or an angled lob.
Using Argan Oil infused shampoo and Argan Oil conditioner will keep freshly chopped locks soft and shiny. Keep shine all day long with an Argan Oil leave-in hair treatment that can be used on towel dried or dry locks. Whether we are feeling curly or sleek and straight, the lob makes for a fast and easy style routine.
Long Shaped Faces
Broad cheekbones, strong jaw, and a narrow forehead are all features of an oval or long face shape. This face shape does well with a shaggy lob or a short and blunt chin length bob. Ashlee Simpson, Lauren Conrad, and Jessica Alba are examples of women who share the same long faced features. If hair was previously flat, shapeless, and lifeless we love how much body and movement a razor blunt bob can give hair. Long faces do not look best in pixie cuts.
Another thing we consider before going short is hair type. Hair that is naturally curly will shrink up and can come out looking shorter when worn natural. Straight hair will not shrink as much and may be able to hold a light wave better once excess weight has been taken off the ends. In any case, we love using Argan oil shampoo and Argan oil conditioner on all hair types. Everyone loves hair that is soft to the touch and glossy to the eyes. Keep hair looking great all day by using an Argan oil hair treatment once hair has been styled.
Square Shaped Faces
With a square shaped face the forehead, jaw, and cheekbones are all the same width. Nicole Richie, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Katie Holmes all share the same face shape. We love how the angled and asymmetrical bob complement this face shape. Unlike a blunt bob an angled or asymmetrical bob softens harsh facial angles. Hairstyles that fall below your jaw line will flatter this face shape best.
Naturally curly hair gals will love the asymmetrical bob as it is most flattering for natural waves and is easy to style. Keep hair soft and manageable with an Argan oil shampoo and an Argan oil conditioner. In between trims, treat locks to an argan oil leave-in hair treatment.
Round faces are cute, but we know that short hair on round faces can give an unusually juvenile appearance. Avoid being mistaken for Shirley Temple with a wavy layered crop, a blunt bob, an angled bob, or a side swept pixie inspired cut. A wavy layered crop is best for those with naturally curly hair. Heavy layering and face framing pieces won’t leave you feeling naked. A blunt bob is a great alternative for those who are not ready to commit to the shorthaired life.
Ease into the new look with a long, blunt lob. An angled bob is a fun way to experiment with a new look. The long angle in the front slims the face and gives an edgy appearance. A side-swept pixie cut is great for those who just want to wash their hair and start the day. This no-fuss cut is great for those with naturally straight or lightly wavy hair. The side swept bangs combat looking too round caused by chubby cheeks.
Oval Face Shape
An oval face is one of the most coveted face shapes. Characterized by elongated facial features rather than wide features like round face shapes are. Kate Middleton, Emma Watson, and Rihanna are all examples of the ever-so coveted oval face shape. Just like our round-faced friends, oval face shapes look best with a layered shag, angled bob, or side swept crop.
The key that keeps these looks from looking too juvenile is proper styling. Start with a shampoo that has been infused with argan oil and an Argan oil conditioner. Keep hair healthy and shiny by including an argan oil leave in hair treatment.
