Here at Mane Addicts, we’re all about ensuring you put your best mane forward when stepping out into the world. We want you to have a good hair day, even if you’re just sitting in traffic. So today, we wanted to talk about hair parts, specifically the best part for your face shape. Whether you have a round visage or a heart-shaped face, we know which part will flatter your features best. Find out which part that is by scrolling below!
Round Face: Deep Side Part or Middle Part
With a round face, the length and width of your visage are almost the same. Your face tends to be a bit smaller with rounder cheekbones and chins. A deep side part will really suit you best to add some symmetry around your face and take away from the prominence of your cheekbones a bit. You can also don a middle part, though make sure it’s in a sleeker style. The key to your face shape is to avoid too much volume, otherwise, you’ll get lost in the hair.
Square or Rectangle Face: Soft Side Part
Though square and rectangle face shapes are often compared to round faces, there is a difference. The former has more angular features, including noticeably sharp jawlines and cheekbones. To soften your features, opt for a soft side part. Paring it with some side bangs will also work wonders to flatter your strong face shape.
Heart-Shaped Face: Side Part
Heart-shaped faces are truly adorable, so it’s no wonder many people wish they had this face shape. In order to enhance your face shape, you’ll want to go with a deep side part as often as possible. The angle of a deep side part will make your forehead appear smaller and your chin look less pointy. If you don’t want to always opt for a dramatic deep part, you can go with any level of the side part.
Oval Face: Any Part
Anyone with an oval face shape is incredibly blessed. Because of the nearly-perfect dimensions of your visage, you can sport just about any hairstyle, haircut, and even hair part. Rock a middle part one day, then a deep side part the next. Don’t be afraid to experiment to find a part you feel the most confident in.
Diamond Face: Side Part
The diamond face shape is a little more uncommon, though many do have its features. With this face shape, the temples will be the widest part of the face shape and the chin comes to a somewhat narrow point. Complement your bone structure with a side part. Just make sure you don’t push too much hair over to cover your already small forehead.
Long Face: Middle Part
Long face shapes get confused for oval face shapes, but the two are not the same. While they’re both longer than other face shapes, a long face shape has a face that gradually tapers toward the chin. Many with this face shape have a prominent chin that deserves to be shown off. To keep your features appearing as symmetrical as ever, go with a middle part.
