If you find yourself looking in the mirror wondering what you can do to spice up your one-length haircut, we have just the answer: face-framing layers! In case you didn’t already know, face-framing layers involve your hairstylist cutting your hair in varying lengths at the front of your face in order to define or “frame” your features. That said, as with most beauty trends, face-framing hairstyles aren’t a one-size-fits-all deal—there’s a face-framing haircut that’s best suited for every face shape. To help you out, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to breakdown the best face-framing layers based on your face shape. Ready to switch up your mane with a new cut? Read on!
If you have an oval face, you’re lucky—there is no shortage of options when it comes to layered haircuts that will suit your face shape. Since your symmetrical shape gives you a bit of leeway, consider emphasizing its symmetry with some face-framing bangs—curtain bangs, to be exact. Pair this with long, face-framing layers that start beneath your chin, and you’ll be sure to turn heads! To style, try adding some heat-free texture by applying the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp strands, scrunching, and allowing your hair to air dry.
Those with a heart-shaped face have a wider forehead and narrower chin. Your ideal face-framing hairstyles will take attention away from your forehead. This is why face-framing bangs, like those curtain bangs we talked about, and long, subtle face-framing layers, which will help balance out the bottom half of your face, are just what you need. To really define and emphasize your already prominent cheekbones, ask your hairdresser for face-framing bangs that just graze the highest point on your face.
Square faces are equal in height and width and have sharp, defined features. Use your face-framing layers to help soften your features while adding a bit of length. To do this, you’ll want to ask for soft, wispy long layers. Pair them with side-swept bangs for a winning ‘do! To style, create large, bouncy curls—just be sure to spritz your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray prior.
If you have a round face, you likely already know that the goal of your haircut should be to add length to your visage. To create the illusion of an elongated face, ask your stylist for long, face-framing layers that start below the chin. Style with loose waves that are focused on the ends of your hair. Don’t forget to set your look with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray!
Diamond faces feature a small forehead, defined cheekbones, and a tapered chin. Since your cheekbones are so sharp, you’ll want your face-framing layers to help soften their appearance a bit. Opt for medium and long layers that fall past your cheekbones. Side-swept bangs are also a great addition!
What’s a triangle face shape? This involves a smaller forehead and a more prominent jawline. So, it should come as no surprise that your best face-framing hairstyle is all about adding volume at the top of your head. Ask your stylist for face-framing bangs that will help add fullness around your forehead. Styles like blunt and rounded bangs will be most flattering!
As with square faces, rectangular faces look best with face-framing layers that help soften their chiseled features, like wispy layers. If you have a long forehead you’d like to minimize, you’ll also find that face-framing curtain bangs are a great option!
Speaking of long faces, if you have an oblong face shape, ask your hairdresser for face-framing strands that will help shorten your face and define your features. Side-swept bangs and face-framing layers that stop at your cheekbones are our top choice.
