HAIR TALK: SQUARE FACE SHAPE

post + graphic design: Kristin Ess

Last week we put up a chart that shows you HOW TO FIND YOUR FACE SHAPE. Hopefully you’ve all narrowed it down to one shape (or two if you’re a hybrid!) and are ready to talk about what cuts + styles work best for you. Don’t fret- we’re going to do a post on each of the 9 face shapes from our chart, so hang tight if you don’t see yours yet! It’s coming. Also, feel free to mix advice from two face shape posts if you think you’re a hybrid! Talk it over with your hairstylist if you’re not quite sure.

THE SQUARE: The goal with most face shapes we’ll talk about will be to either love it/embrace it/wear it proud like Olivia Wilde does in the bigger picture above with all of her hair pulled off of her face OR to do what you can to down-play your shape if it’s something that you don’t love. If you’re looking to down-play your square face shape, the goal will be to diffuse the 4 corners a little bit. Here are some great ways to do that. (more…)

BANG BOOM POW!

Tis the season for bangs, and verbally communicating what you want can be tough… “You know, like heavy but not too heavy, but like in my eyes, but not too much, but like whispy and blunt.” I hear that a lot. And while I’ve learned to translate this language, I still feel it’s always best to bring 1 or 2 pictures of the bangs you like and a picture of the bangs you don’t like. It makes communicating MUCH easier and could save you from annoying grow out period. Also, if one kind of bang isn’t a perfect fit, it’s ok to ask your stylist to create a hybrid of two! Here are a couple of the most requested bangs in my chair. Hope these help!

OH! And don’t forget to READ THIS if you have trouble styling your bangs!

Okay, time to get your honesty out! Tell me something– how many nights a week do you carve the path to your pillow with good intentions? We’re all guilty of passing out with our makeup fully in tact and waking up to find it… hmmm… not-so-in-tact. But how often are you skipping the sink?
