TRADUCTION EN COURS

Heart-shaped faces

For Heart-shaped face (with pointy chin) a blunt (straight) haircut below the chin is excellent.
Side-swept bangs are excellent.
A haircut with layers all over (V1L4)  and a blowdry of V2L3 (partially outwards) are a good combination.
A haircut with layers at the bottom (V1L3)  and a blowdry of V2L7 (all outwards) are also another good combination.
If you have a haircut with layers in front (V1L2) a good blowdry to accompany it would be V6L4 (advanced lessons).
A straight blowdry (V2L2) with parting on either side would be best.Avoid parting in the middle which would emphasize the long chin.
When blowdrying, do whatever you have to do to get volume around the chin area, eg; loose curls, outwards wispy ends, etc. The objective of all the hairstyles above for this facial type is to camouflage or cover up the long chin by puffying the hair on the sides (around the jaw).

Oblong faces

For women:
Avoid any type of long haircut.
Medium-length hair with long layers starting around the jaw or shorter are excellent.
Don't part the hair in the middle.
Wispy ends around the face are excellent.
Bangs are great, because they cut the length away from your face.
If customer wants a short cut it has to have equal layers all over (V1L5), but the layers should not be shorter than about 5 inches in length.

For men:
A beard can help provide additional balance to a long face.
Don't allow the facial hair to become too long as this will lengthen the face.

Oval faces

An oval face is considered the ideal face shape because almost any style will look good on you. but pay attention to your facial features that are not proportionate to your face, such as your ears, nose, etc.
You would do combination cuts to hide imperfect facial features. For example, if you have an oval face with a voluminous nose, avoid super short wispy hair which would look for your facial shape but not good for your facial feature that you are trying to hide
