      Pick a cut based on the shape of your face. If you have an oval shaped face, almost any cut will be flattering. If your face is round, add side-swept bangs or try a cut that hits just below the chin. For long face shapes, definitely get brow-skimming bangs or a chin-length bob to add width. If you have a square shaped face, get a short spiky cut. Heart-shaped face shapes look best with choppy layers.

      Pick a cut based on the texture of your hair. If your hair is flat, add volume by getting a layered haircut. If you have thick hair, try a blunt cut.

    • 4

      Pick a cut based on your styling routine. If you don't have a lot of time every morning to fix your hair, get a no-fuss cut that won't be a burden to style.
