 1. Lisa's Choice: Maria Conchita Alonso
 

Lisa hairstyles number 1

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, diamond
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: high
Time: 20-30 mins
Techniques: blow-dry
Products: mousse, gel spray, wax, hair spray 

Hair Consultant:

With this style, side angled layers help to round off and define a shorter shape to suit Lisa's oblong face shape. The eye level wispy bangs also divide the shape horizontally creating more width while drawing attention to Lisa's eyes. This style will require some blow-dry time, but hey, "if that's what it takes". I love the china black color with blue highlighted weaves on Lisa and she obviously does as well. Her skin is blemish free and also the right tone to get away with such a bold color choice. The dark color also adds shine and solid contours to the overall shape of the style.

Verdict

A good exciting style and color that will grab attention.

 

2. Lisa's Choice: Rebecca Mader
 

Lisa's hairstyles number 2

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, diamond
Hair Texture: thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: high
Time: 30+ mins
Techniques: blow-dry, curling iron
Products: mousse, gel wax, lacquer

Hair Consultant:

Curls are okay on Lisa so long as they are soft and open. The layered cut here helps to add width and body to Lisa's long face shape and I think that some side swept bangs would help to balance and frame Lisa's face better. This style can be very time consuming to create, so for a more permanent result, she could consider a soft spiral wave. I am not mad about the color; it's a little too light and copper for my liking.

Verdict:

A darker copper color all over with the chosen color as highlights would be much more flattering.

 

3. Lisa's Choice: Drew Barrymore
 

Lisa hairstyles number 3

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, diamond
Hair Texture: thin, medium
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: medium
Time: 10-20 mins
Techniques: blow-dry
Products: mousse, wax

Hair Consultant:

Lisa has definitely got the shape right here with this concave chin level precision bob cut that places the hair exactly where she needs it most, under her chin and full through the sides. The side part also helps to divide her face into two uneven portions and thus minimize vertical length. Another positive factor about this hairstyle is the obvious time that will be saved with home styling maintenance. I have always believed that the color of precision cuts should be kept solid, either dark or light, to compliment the goal of the cut. In Lisa's case I believe that it should be a deep dark brown. The color she has chosen looks washed out on her olive complexion.

Verdict:

Good cut, wrong color!

 

4. Lisa's Choice: Swoosie Kurtz
 

Lisa hairstyles number 4

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, diamond
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: high
Time: 20-30 mins
Techniques: blow-dry
Products: gel spray, wax, sculpture lotion, hair spray

Hair Consultant:

This is a very elegant graduated shoulder length bob cut that adds textured width to Lisa's longer face shape. Side swept bangs also draw attention to Lisa's beautiful eyes. The color of this style is okay but would definitely come to life if it was 2 to 3 shades darker. This look would require a blow-dry time of around 20 to 30 minutes.

Verdict:

The style looks to be a little too old and tailored for Lisa. The color is also too light.

 

5. Lisa's Choice: Jennifer Love Hewitt
 

Lisa hairstyles number 5

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, heart, diamond
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: high
Time: 30+ mins
Techniques: blow-dry, curling iron
Products: mousse, lacquer

Hair Consultant:

This style is technically correct for Lisa in that it adds width to her long oblong face shape. I think that the back should be a little longer or the bangs in the front need to become wispier and see through. This will help balance the shape out as it appears too wide and horizontal. With straight hair this will take some styling time to achieve as apposed to natural waves that could be scrunched. I like the color but it needs some bright slicing in the front region to accentuate Lisa's eyes and individualize the cut.

Verdict:

A good shape that requires less heavy bangs or more length. Some bright color in the front will also help the style to "jump out."

 

6. Hair Consultant's Choice: Martina McBride
 

Lisa hairstyles number 6

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: high
Time: 20-30 mins
Techniques: blow-dry
Products: wax, sculpture lotion, smoothing shine, hair spray, moisturizer

Hair Consultant:

My favorite! This layered cut will put body into Lisa's current flat hairstyle and the side swept bangs will create an angled shape to shorten Lisa's face shape while showing off her beautiful eyes. Styling for this look is easy and can be varied from textured to smooth, depending on the occasion, and the long hair length will allow Lisa to pull her hair back and wear various upstyles. This is a great cut for Lisa's age group and the mocha brown color with highlighted copper gold slices is perfect for Lisa's olive complexion.

Verdict:

Good shape, right cut, perfect color!
