Right Haircut for Your Face Shape?
IN THIS transparently obeisant genuflection to my female readers, I proffer this summary of a tutorial on getting the right haircut for your face shape.
Of course, I have no expertise in this matter, other than having observed a few women and their hairdos from time to time, and so am wholly reliant on the perceptions of the Fashion + Beauty section of Yahoo’s Shine, upon which the link above references.
The upshot is that you can identify your face shape by measuring it with a tape measure, and then choose the hair style that the experts-in all-things-fashionable say is complimentary.
Have to admit, as a man, I concur with these expert assessments, though it’s possible that the women used to exemplify the perfect combination of hair style to face shape are considerably above pulchritudinous norms, and thus defy dissent.
Update (2/17/10): Seems the examples of face shapes and appropriate hair cuts have been removed from the site I link to above. But there are descriptions, so go there and check it out if you’re so inclined.
