Hairstyles That Go With Every Face Shape

Those awesome Kiera Knightly bangs? Won’t work in your case!

“Not every hairstyle is meant for you. You need to have a specific face shape to suit the hair-do.”

There goes the smile from your face. Is it too much to ask to look and feel like your favorite celebrity? Why can’t you rock the Katniss Everdeen hair-do while others can? If you have been wondering what to do with your hair lately, the following are hairstyles that go with every face shape:

The Whimsical Bangs
Side sweep is the usual way to go. Because, they take way the emphasis from the tapered chin of heart shapes. And, they can add dimension to the rounds. And, they can curb the fines of a square face too…

Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Olivia Wilde – let them be your styling gurus.

Ah, but what about the long faces?
Err… Aye, blunt the bangs above the brows. You need to add width to a long face and this would do the trick.
Hannah Simone, we are looking at you—with awe!
Don’t listen to the detractors, for a little bit of styling with bangs can flatter every face shape.

The All Too Sensible Mediums
Neither they are long, nor short – they sit sensibly on your shoulders. Plus, you can wear them on a smart casual hangout or in the elegant of your stylish corporate self.
Yes, it doesn’t matter whether you have a long face, a square one or a round one.
For, the medium cut can make a long face look wider, especially if you flip it out.
As for the square face, add curls to a side sweep—sounds, time consuming, but it really isn’t. And, it actually does help to soften the sharp edges.
If you are looking to wear them with a round face, your focus should be on keeping them straight. This would make your round face appear stretched-we mean elongated!
Cough, cough… Milla Jovovich.

The Drooling Boho Layers
Mila Kunis is smiling, because she knows this was coming.
And, honestly, we could not miss it from the list either. Simply, because, boho layers set every face shape drooling. Anyone can try this hair-do.
The circles can flaunt the look by having the layers around the chin. You will get an elongated look.
If you already have a long face, then you need to trim your layers a bit higher – somewhere around the cheekbones. You look stunning dear!
Finally, for the square-faced Aphrodites, you need to start with the layers below the cheek. This will help you soften the strong and square of your jaw.
By the way, Nicole Richie loves it too.

Pixie for the Daring
Yes, it really doesn’t matter whether you have a long face, short face, square or oval – you just need to be daring, ala Jennifer Lawrence style, to wear this look. You will be going really short with your hairs and with varying trims depending on your face shape.
So, let’s say if you have got a round face. For that you will need to trim it in a way that brings height to a traditional pixie cut. These tall layered cuts will make your round face look longer and leaner. If it’s the long face with which you are trying to pull off the hair do, then a neat side swept with angled short bangs would just add to your already stunning looks. Contrast the edgy of the square face with a soft cut. As for a heart shaped face, again the side sweep but this time with longer bangs would be ideal.

Can’t Ignore the Bob, Ladies!
Men love it and for good reason.
They make you look ultra stylish and exhibit the confident you, because you can wear them comfortably irrespective of the face shape. Plus, you don’t have to go all short with them.
A bob cut can add dimension to square faces, if styled with a side parting. If you have a long face, you can curl the back and the sides to compliment the facial aesthetics.
Simply mold it the way you want it to and a bob never looks out of order. Just ask Victoria Beckham.

How to sun proof your mien

We already know that the sun is the biggest culprit for

We already know that the sun is the biggest culprit for premature ageing so what can we do about it? Dermatologists will have you know that wearing sunscreen is the single most effective way against sun protection, not to mention that it is the basis of proper skin care.

Often you’ll find sun protection formulas differentiated by SPF denominations. SPF essentially stands for ‘sun protection factor’, a measure of how well the sunscreen protects the skin. A minimum of 30 SPF is recommended by dermatologist.

However, if you’re swimming or perspiring, it is advisable to reapply as often as every two hours to optimize sun protection. A broad-spectrum formula that helps block out UVB and UVA rays which are the primary causes for sunburns, wrinkling and ageing.

Using the right amount of sunscreen is vital. A rule of thumb would be that you need approximately a dollop the size of a quarter to cover the face. Don’t step out right away after applying sunscreen, give it at least 20 minutes to get absorbed into the skin. Wear makeup over sunscreen as the finishing touch.

A modern take on an age-old nail favourite

French Twist

French Twist
A modern take on an age-old nail favourite

Updated and thoroughly modern, the classic nude-and-white French isn’t exactly making a comeback, rather it’s being reimagined and the possibilities are endless.

French manicures of now are an art on its own thanks to colours, metallic, graphic sharps and negative space. They are anything but basic. French tips work best on nail’s natural oval or round shapes but that’s not to say square tips cannot benefit all the same. Simply move the tip to the side for a funky asymmetrical slant.

Take border nail art all the way lining the entire nail from the tip to sides to wrap around the nail bed for a bold take on graphics. Play up on colour contrast to push the style envelope further.

For a more painterly approach, use a nail art brush to create lines from the French coloured tip. Set the lines with a dry brush to blend the lines with the tip. Allow design to dry for five minutes before applying a top coat.

The cornerstone of nail art, French manicure has always been, and will continue to inspire nail art.

Frame It Up

Over plucked your brows? Fret not, help is

Over plucked your brows? Fret not, help is at hand. Fix them in 4 simple steps.

1.​ ​Let It Grow
Give it three to four weeks for eyebrows to grow back though some may take even longer. Resist from tweezing even if you spot strays. Apply clear gel over brows to help them look groomed even when they are not on their best behaviour.

2.​ ​On Speed
Rub on growth serum just before bed to hasten regrowth. Ayurveda insists that applying castor oil speeds up hair growth.

3.​ ​Shape Up
A balanced brow that perfectly frames the face is just what the beauty doctor ordered. Angular faces will benefit from a round, soft brow to play down its chiseled jawline while a long face with look considerably shorted with a straight brow. Rule of thumb to operate off – the brow should peak where the brow bone protrudes the most. Follow your bone structure for a natural arch.

4.​ ​Improvise
For brows to look fuller, use a pencil or a gel to intensify the natural arch of the brow. Choose a colour that is two shades lighter than your eyebrow hair.
