Should You Pick Your Hair Style Based On Body Type?

How to get your best hair style

When you decide that you want a new hair style, you may want to look beyond your hair type and likes/dislikes. Face shape is always an important factor when deciding on a hair style. There are 6 basic face shapes and all others are a combination of 1 or 2 shapes. Hair styles can be designed to accentuate the basic face shapes and bring out different aspects of your facial features. Basic face shapes include heart, round, oval, oblong, square and rectangle.

There is another factor that will greatly affect the way your hair style turns out. It is called body type. There are many different body types out there. For now we will talk about very basic body types–tall and short, and thin/full-figured.

Tall Women: If you are tall (5’7″ and up) you should probably wear your hair long and full. The longer hair will create a sexier effect than shorter hair. If you take a look at all the tall celebrities, you will notice that most of them are wearing their hair in a medium to long length.

Short Women: If you are 5’4″ and under, you are probably better off wearing a shorter hair style. Long hair on a short person creates a very overwhelming effect that makes you look even shorter.

If your height is somewhere between 5′ 4″ and 5’7″ you can probably get away with either a short or long hair style.

Thin Women: If you are thin (and the envy of everyone!) you should choose a style that has medium volume. If you wear your hair stick straight, your body will look even thinner. Likewise if you wear your hair with a full volume, you may look heavy.

Full Figured Women: If you have a full figure, you should avoid wearing very short hair or rounded bobs. These styles will accentuate your fullness and make you look even fuller, or disproportionate. Chose a hair style that has a little more length and fullness to it. Balance is the key to creating the perfect hair style.
