The best haircut for your face shape using Japanese cobalt scissors

We've all been there: spending ages fawning through Pinterest for inspiration for your next hair cut. However, there's a hot new way to choose your next 'do: being inspired by your face shape. The shape of your face can make all the difference between a haircut that looks okay and one that has everyone fawning over how great you look. Below is our handy guide to selecting the perfect style to make the most of your features.

Round face

Round faces are well-suited to most hair styles but there are some nifty tips that will ensure you leave the salon with an uber-flattering do. Japanese cobalt scissors are perfect for adding texture into your hair, which makes them the ideal choice for our two suggestions for this face shape. Firstly, consider a mid-length choppy style (think Julianne Hough when it just passed her shoulders). This style will accentuate your cheekbones, especially when worn with a subtle side parting. If you prefer a longer style, try adding some shape around the front with layers that sit on your chin. This will make your face look longer and slimmer. Clever, eh?

Heart shaped face

Heart shaped faces are the envy of models all around the world. Why? They are the face shape best suited to super-cool pixie cuts and short hairdos thanks to their enviable feminine features. The unrivalled sharpness of Japanese cobalt scissors allows them to create perfectly precise pixie cuts that will highlight your face. If you like to mix up your look, speak to your stylist about tailoring this style to be worn in a variety of ways (think of the multitude of awesome looks Emma Willis gets out of her cut). If you're looking for a longer style, ask your stylist to add a sweeping side fringe, a truly pretty feature for a heart shape face. 

Long face

Long faces look best with a bit of volume in the hair to balance out the face. Kate Middleton is a classic long face example and she certainly embraces this method. The key to adding volume is to keep these layers subtle, rather than with a great difference in length, as this will help you create that lovely bouncy look. If you want to add a bit of shape around the front, your hairstylist can utilise the sharpness of Japanese cobalt scissors to slide cut your hair, for a really fine, flattering finish. 

So next time you look through a magazine or Pinterest for your next hairstyle inspiration, make sure you check the face shapes of the models. And whatever style you pick, make sure you wear it with confidence.
