Prom hairstyles are filled with glamour. Updos that
make a gal look like a princess for the evening rule.
Whatever prom hairstyle you choose be sure and try out
the look before prom day. A test run will make sure
that you like the style you have chosen, and let you
know whether it will suit your type of hair. Here are
some of the latest updo looks.
||Oval:The jaw line may be slightly narrower than
the temples, the hairline is probably gently rounded
and may be high up on the forehead. The widest measurement
is two thirds the length of your face You are lucky
indeed if you have an oval shaped faced because
this is considered the most proportional of the
face types. Oval shaped faces can wear their hair
long, short or medium. Stay away from bangs.
Heart Shaped: The
chin is the narrowest feature of the face, and
the cheeks are wider than the forehead. The hairline
may a peak down front. The ideal hair length for
a heart-shaped face is two inches above the chin
to chin-length. Wearing the hair behind the ear
would be advantageous. Bangs work very well, and
updos are best when a few wisps of hair are left
around the ears and down to the chin. Stay away
from hairstyles puffed up at the top because they
tend to make a top heavy look. Straight hair will
accentuate the angles of the chin.
Oblong face: The
face is long and slender, about the same width
at the forehead as it is as the cheeks, but there
is no specific ratio of length to width. The chin
may be nearly the same width as the cheeks or
it may be slightly smaller. The forehead may be
very high Long and rectangular-shaped faces need
hair that is chin-length or longer. A side part
will help cut into the length of the face. Heavy
bangs with feathering and hair fullness are needed
to frame the face. Curly or wavy hair is best
because it creates fullness and dimension, making
the face appear more oval.
Round : Your
chin is round, as is your hair line. Your cheeks
are approximately the same width as the measurement
from hair line to chin. Shorter hairstyles work
best with round faces. Wear an off-center part,
and/or hair swept back since this will elongate
your face. If you want to wear your hair longer,
then be sure that you wear it at more than chin-length-
you might even consider having it layered so that
it is fuller on top. Stay away from center parts,
or short hair that is cut with a round cut, because
this will make your face look wide and heavy
The cheek bones are widest, and the forehead and
chin may be pretty much equal in width, or the chin
might be only a little smaller than the forehead.
The hairline may be straight, or peaked in the front.
Like the oval face, most hair styles also work because
it’s a very balanced face type. All hair lengths
are fine, too. Try not to cover up your features
too much with hair. If you’re wearing an updo,
an all-gathered up look without trailing wisps will
work best. . Square faces look best when hair is
cut just below the chin or is shoulder-length. This
will help soften the jaw and cheekbones. For the
same reason, wavy, layered and curly hair are excellent
for this shape.
