Go For A Haircut That Complements Your Face Shape
It wouldn't be wrong to say that a woman is super-sensitive about her locks; if anything goes wrong with her hair, she's doomed!
While we can be very carefree in choosing our hairstyle every day, a haircut, good or bad, stays with you for at least the next six months. But of course, people like me with stunted hair growth have to bear the consequences of a disastrous haircut for a year or so! L
If a hairstyle doesn't suit your face shape, it will never flatter your look, no matter how well-executed it may have been. Hence, it is all the more important to make a wise choice and not rush into an experimental cut that's currently in trend. We list down the suitable haircuts according to every face shape; look for the one that's your best bet.
What's more? We give you the chance to take hints from our Bollywood divas, who have been rocking these chic haircuts!
The Pixie Cut
The pixie cut has been in vogue since quite a long time and it sure isn't going anywhere soon. Bollywood hotties like Mandira Bedi and Gul Panag have become synonymous with this bold cut. Even Anushka Sharma confidently carried this look in PK. A pixie cut tends to look best on a round, square or heart-shaped face, though you need to remember that this haircut will emphasize the facial features, so no more hiding chubby cheeks! However, a wide forehead can be camouflaged by side-swept bangs. Before opting for a pixie cut, know that you will require frequent salon visits, contrary to popular belief.
The Bob Cut
The bob cut is a longer and sharper version of the pixie cut, with hair skimming along the jawline. Popularised by divas like Priyanka Chopra and Lara Dutta, a bob cut suits a longer and slimmer face. Women with an oval or heart-shaped face can also opt for this one, but with wispy edges. This haircut comes with a number of variations; the most stylish one being Bipasha Basu's uneven chin-length bob cut.
The Shoulder-Length Cut
With hair that's almost touching your collarbones, the shoulder-length haircut has a face slimming effect. This cut is perfect for diamond-shaped or oblong faces and it's versatile too. Keep it bouncy like Bipasha or slightly permed like Sonakshi Sinha, either way you're in a win-win situation. Plus, this one is extremely low-maintenance and looks super sexy.

The Heavily Layered Medium-Length Cut
In love with Priyanka Chopra's gorgeous layers in Dostana? We are too! This one's a must-try for women who don't like it too short or too long. The layered cut is perfect for almost all face shapes; consider consulting your stylist to know the exact number of layers that would suit you. However, you would need to keep your hair's texture in mind; sadly, thin and limp tresses are not meant for this one.
The Waist-Length Cut
Women who boast of impressive hair growth can choose to keep their locks long. Though this haircut is a little on the higher maintenance side, you can easily customize this one according to what would suit you. Women with sharp facial features can choose for one-length Rapunzel-like hair, while others can go for a layered cut. I, personally, am in love with Diana Penty's and Sonal Chauhan's gorgeous long tresses.
