Hair 2013: A roundup of the best hair advice

Hair 2013: A roundup of the best hair advice A haircut can make or break looks. A good one can make you look like a million dollars and a bad one is nothing short of a nightmare. Whenever you are going in for a haircut always make sure that it is best suited to the shape of your face. There are different haircuts that go with long, round, square or heart shaped faces. At the end of the year, here is a roundup of some of the best haircut options seen this year, depending on face shapes. So whether hairstylists or hairdressing wholesalers, CoolBlades has the right equipment for you to get one of these awesome haircuts before the year is over! Haircuts for long faces If you have a long face, then the general rule is to not wear a long haircut. It has a tendency of dragging your face down. Remember that the rule of thumb is to always find a haircut that doesn’t bring out or accentuate your face shape from what it already is. However, if you still want a long haircut then get a layered haircut which touches the cheekbones and chin. You can also go in for the long wavy haircut because it adds to the breadth of a long face. The best option is short hair for a long face with straight hair. You can also go in for bangs too, if you have a long forehead. Haircuts for square faces For those born with a square face structure, you will want a haircut that tones down your angular jaw. Avoid the extra short haircuts. For this, get a textured haircut with curls or even choppy hair endings. This takes away the extra attention from the sharp angles. Again, going with bangs is a great idea. However, avoid heavy bangs like the plague because they will only add to your angular face. Go in for longer bangs on the sides because that will give you a softer look. Haircuts for heart-shaped faces This kind of a face also means a pointed chin. Balance that out with long bangs which are also sideswept. This draws attention to the eyes. Most haircuts would look good with heart-shaped faces, but the bangs are a must if you want to draw attention away from your chin. So you can go in for shoulder length bobs, or even long wavy hair. Make sure those bangs aren’t too short though. Haircuts for oval faces This is the much envied face because it goes with all kinds of haircuts. However, oval faces can look a little long so be careful to not appear top heavy. Avoid cuts with blunt ends, if you happen to have thick or even curly hair. Haircuts for round faces This is a tricky face and requires some attention. If you are not careful, your face can look even more round. Your haircut should make your face look a longer and lean as well. Go in for straight hair with choppy ends. Keep the bangs short with some angles in the front. Avoid short hair because it will make your face look even rounder. Remember that your haircut has to be edgy to achieve the desired effect. Don’t go in for bobs, they are an absolute no-no. However, if you really want to be experimental, then try a slightly long bob which goes a few inches below the chin. Make no mistakes with the styling too. This should be useful to all girls looking for a good haircut to turn some heads.
