[MUSIC] We've got the secret to getting that perfect haircut. The trick? Know your face shape. Heart-shaped faces are widest at the forehead and cheekbones, and taper down to an angular or pointed chin. True heart-shaped faces also have a widow's peak. Reese Witherspoon or Kourtney Kardashian are two perfect celeb examples. If you have a heart shaped face, you'll look best with layered cut with lots of volume and a side part. For women with round faces, the length and width of your face are the same, both your hair line and your jaw line are rounded with no major angles. These famous faces include Jennifer Goodwin and Miranda Kerr. Ask for a cut that frames your face rather than one with volume. Also, a deep side part helps a round face appear slimmer by making your look less symmetrical. If you have a square face, your most recognizable feature is a strong angular jaw line. Also look for very little narrowing from your forehead to cheekbones and cheekbones to chin. Celebs like Olivia Wilde and Sandra Bullock are your square sisters. Soft, romantic curls will be very flattering on you. If your face is longer than it is wide, and you have no major corners or angles at your hairline or chin, you have an oval face shape. Eva Mendez and Jessica Alba are two stunning examples. Ovals are the most versatile shape when it comes to hairstyles. There's almost no cut you can't pull off. Lucky you. That said, you should still consider your hair texture and styling time commitment. Now that you've figured out your face shape it's easy to find a hairstyle that will look gorgeous on you. [MUSIC]
