Hairstyles That Appear To Alter Facial Symmetry

Posted on: 25 February 2020

If you have a facial feature that you would like to either change or minimize, don't rush off to the plastic surgeon just yet. Your hairstylist at your favorite hair salon can suggest various styles to help enhance your appearance. Hairstyles can minimize certain features and accentuate others. Here are some hairstyles that can give your face a more symmetrical or balanced look while enhancing your appearance. 

High Forehead

If you have a high forehead, you may either embrace it or try to detract from it. If you want to deemphasize the appearance of your high forehead, your stylist may recommend bangs. Whether you choose straight bangs or choppy bangs, your new look will flatter your appearance.

If your hair has been all one length for years and you don't want to cut your bangs all the way, consider wispy bangs. Your stylist can simply cut a few wisps of your hair so that it doesn't look as severe or dramatic. If you like your new look, you can then have your bangs cut all the way. In addition, if you are prone to oily skin, your stylist may recommend that you wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo because the oils from your bangs can cause a breakout on your forehead. If you have oily hair, chances are you will have oily areas on your T-zone, which refers to your forehead, nose, and chin. 

Side Part

If you have thinning hair, a side part may make your hair look more voluminous. To make your hair look thicker, bend at the waist when blow-drying it, and then make a deep side part. If your hair doesn't stay parted, spritz a small amount of hair spray on it.

You can also add some styling product to the roots of your hair before blow-drying it so that your hair is lifted from the root. Side parts are also flattering for people with round faces. They are also recommended for those with long or square faces; however, if your face is very square or angular, avoid deep side parts.

If you are unsure about which hairstyle best flatters your features, make an appointment at a hair salon. The stylist will evaluate the texture and general health of your hair while assessing the shape of your face. He or she will then recommend the most flattering style that will accentuate both your hair type and your facial features.
