How to Part Your Hair According to Your Face Shape


1. Round Shaped Face

If you have a round face, your best bet is a middle part or a deep side part. These parts give the illusion of lengthening your face, creating a balanced symmetry. The deep side part also adds volume on top, making your face appear longer.

For example, our lovely Shai, in a Kinky Straight Fit 'N' Go wig with a center part, is perfect for round faces.


2. Heart-Shaped Face

For heart-shaped faces, aim to soften your cheekbones and break up the chin line. A deep side part is ideal as it achieves both goals. Additionally, curtain bangs, one of the latest trends, can beautifully complement a heart-shaped face by adding softness and highlighting your eyes.


3. Square Face

If you have a square face, you might want to soften your jawline and chin. A swoop or side-swept part with bangs works wonders. A side part that gently frames the face also adds softness.


4. Diamond Shaped Face

Diamond faces shine with a side part and shorter hairstyles that highlight cheekbones. Bangs generally don't work well with this face shape, but asymmetrical bangs, a current trend, can offer a modern twist while maintaining balance.

Consider our model Diamond, in our  20” Raw Natural Wavy Lace Front wig with a side part and side-swept lay, which perfectly complements diamond face shapes.


5. Oval Face

Oval faces are versatile and can pull off almost any part. Whether you prefer a middle part, a side-swept style, or a deep part, feel free to experiment with different looks to find your favorite.

6. Oblong Face

A side part with hair gently swooping across the forehead works well for oblong faces, giving the illusion of softness and rounding out your face. Bangs are also a great option as they help shorten the face shape.


Latest Hairstyle Trends and Techniques

Asymmetrical and Curtain Bangs

Both asymmetrical and curtain bangs are incredibly versatile and suit various face shapes. They add a contemporary style to your look while enhancing your natural features.


The 90s Middle Part

The middle part has made a comeback, thanks to celebrities and influencers. It's a simple yet chic way to update your look, especially flattering for oval and round faces.


The Wolf Cut

The wolf cut, with its shaggy layers and voluminous top, has become a favorite. It works well for multiple face shapes, particularly when tailored to individual features. This cut can be adapted for both short and long hair.


Hair Contouring

Hair contouring uses color and cuts to enhance or soften facial features. It's a perfect technique to complement your face shape, adding depth and dimension to your hair.


Hairstyles with Face Masks

Given the current global environment, it's important to consider hairstyles that work well with face masks. Styles that keep hair away from the face, such as high ponytails, buns, or sleek middle parts, can be both practical and stylish.
