From length and colour to layers and maintenance, there are so many factors to take into consideration when deciding on a new hairstyle. But if you have a fringe (or are opting to cut one in), there’s another crucial factor that can make a major difference: your face shape. Whether yours is round, square, oval, or heart-shaped, different types of fringe can be used to enhance, alter, and flatter your face.
But first, how do you figure out your face shape? The easiest way to do so is to look at your jawline. Typically a square face has a very angular low jawline, a round face is proportionately round, an oval face is rounded but elongated, and a heart-shaped face will have rounded edges but a more pointed chin.
