Sometimes though, we might have some features we'd rather flatter than flaunt and this guide will let you know how to choose the right hairstyle to enhance, disguise and make the most of your features.

Low/Medium Hairline

If you have a low hairline you should look at styles that have no bangs or only have wispy ones to help disguise and flatter your low forehead.

High Hairline

You can flatter your high hairline by incorporating bangs into your new look. There are many types of bangs that you can try, from fine and wispy to thick and fuller. This will be determined by your hairline and if you have any irregularities.

Styles To Try:

  • Square bangs.
  • A sweeping bang which goes across the brow is a good styling option which will balance out any extra length that a high hairline/larger forehead can add to the face.

Prominent Ears

If you wish to flatter your protruding ears, look for hairstyles that will cover your ears to at least half way down. Usually people that have larger or protruding ears can show off the lobes and still disguise their size by hiding the top area. Often, a persons ears are not evenly balanced so that one ear may appear to protrude more than the other. If this is your problem, look for styles that won't accentuate this. Ideally the top of your ear should align with the eyebrow and the bottom should align with the nose. Your hairstyle should not draw attention to your ears. Also be sure not to cut your hair too short behind your ears when choosing short styles.

Styles To Try:

  • Bobs with lots of layers will ensure that the back of your ears don't show through your hair.
  • A hairdo that features strands down the front of your face and ears will create softness around your ears.

A Strong Nose

The trick to finding a hairstyle that suits and flatters larger noses is to find one that will take focus away from the middle of your face. Incorporating softness to your style, such as creating waves curls or layer cutting straight hair will also help. Look for hairstyles where the hair is running away from your face and not coming forward drawing attention to your nose. Also high styles where there are no bangs creates a focal point at eye level or even higher.

Styles To Try:

  • Go for a style with lots of softness around the forehead and face. This can be achieved by bangs or with layers.

A Double Chin

A double chin can be soften and concealed by mid-length styles with plenty of soft layers. Stay away from very short looks.

A Short Neck

If you have a short neck and wish to make it appear longer then you should look at a style that will do this. Cutting your hair shorter in the nape will lengthen a short neck.

Styles To Try:

  • Anything that is mid level with your neck or above it in length.

A Long Neck

If you have a long neck and wish to find a style that will not accentuate length then you will need to avoid styles that are too short or upswept at the nape.

Styles To Try:

  • Hairdos that keep your length longer on your neck.

Short/Average Height

Although not really important, ones height should be looked at when choosing a hairstyle. For shorter people wishing to appear a little taller, look at hairstyles that create more height on top that will still balance up proportionately with your face shape.

Tall Height

If you would like to minimize your height you should look at styles that won't make you appear even taller. Using your face shape as your primary guide, you should not try to create too much height on top unless you have a very short neck.

Slim Body Build

Just as there is an ideal face shape there is also an ideal in body proportions. Those with a slim frame can look at choosing a style that is bigger in proportion.

Styles to Try:

  • Styles that are fuller and that have more volume, such as waves and curls. - Layer cutting on some hair types will also work best.

Average Body Build

Being in the middle or medium size is great because you can have large hair or small looking hairstyles.

Large Body Build

If you would like to minimize your build, don't choose a style such as full high hair as this will make you look even larger. Also, be particularly careful when choosing wavy or curly styles as they do create a bigger illusion.

Styles To Try:

  • Most short cuts are fabulous for your frame. It's just a case of having enough courage to take the plunge.
