I was trying to write up something about hairstyles which flatter different face shapes and found some very interesting information at WigShop.com. There is a section within their website which covers the type of women’s wigs for different face shapes and I believe this also applies well for normal hairstyles.
Six types of face shapes were identified; namely oval, round, square, rectangular, heart and pear. Out of which, women with oval face shapes are said to have the most choices as most hair shape works well on them. On the other hand, women with round faces are better with wigs that add height but not width, while square faces should avoid styles that add width at the jawline. If you’ve got a rectangular face shape, then avoid styles that add height on top while those with heart shape face should find a style that add volume to the chin and those with pear shape face should add volume above the jawline.
In fact, I was also very impressed with the styles of the different wigs and hair pieces offered by WigShop.com. They look almost like real hair to me (in fact some of them are) and the styles and colours available are very attractive, although not all the colours are suitable for Asians.
So for those aspiring to achieve the versatility of a Jessica Simpson HairDo, which took the pop star from the curly red bob to her trademark waist–length blond tresses – and everywhere in between, getting a wig that suits your face shape might be the way to go.
