Depending on the way you cut, arrange, or tie your hair, you can make your face appear much slimmer. It seems impossible, but it is not.
Since you were a teenager, you always struggled with your hair. If it is straight, surely you wanted it to have curls and if it was wavy you might have surely ironed it several times. Whatever the case, the truth is we never settle for our hair.
Hair provides a very special frame to the face and, depending on the type of hair, it can also have other advantages. Usually, both your haircut and the way you style it can help make your face look slimmer. And that never hurts.
Therefore, if what you are looking for is for your face to look a bit sharper and your cheeks slimmer, we bring you seven possible hairstyles that will help you achieve your goal. Also, they are very easy to do.
1. Side braid
No matter what type of hair you have, you can always do a classic three-strand braid or a slightly more elaborate style. The important thing is that it is on the side to give your face the effect of looking longer.
This hairstyle goes well with any outfit and helps your cheekbones look sharper and your face more stylized. Also, if you add some crepe on the top of your head, you will look taller and slimmer.
3. Hair loose and sideways
The side parting is the best option to make your face look slimmer. If your hairdo is in layers, the effect will be much better, as this option helps to balance the features and make the face look slimmer. If you want to look more formal and tall, the best option is to have it smooth. If instead, you are looking for a more rebellious look, then you should make tousled waves.
4. Half tail
You can comb your hair back to expose your forehead and pin it behind your head, leaving a loose part. You can also make the part in the middle or on the side, give some volume to the height of the crown and hold a section of lace at the back. This style will brighten your face and highlight your cheekbones, making it look sharper and more beautiful.
5. Soft or beachy waves
The waves should go from your jaw to the tips, but never at the top. This will create the illusion that your face is longer and triangular in shape.
6. High bun
Gather all of your hair at the top of your head, preferably in a tousled style. This will help you look taller and slimmer.
7. Side bangs
If you are thinking of using a fringe, it is best to have it irregular in shape and comb it on its side. Avoid being straight and in the center of the face, as that will only cause your face to look rounder.
