Olive Oyl Gets the “Star” Hair Treatment
A few weeks ago, in an earlier blog post, I asked make-up artist Valerie Star to tell me what hairstyles would be most flattering for the shape of my face and physical features. She offered three suggestions, and then, angel that she is went a step further and sent me these amazing illustrations. Valerie intuitively knows any woman contemplating a change in hairstyle scours magazines for inspiration and ideas. Thanks to Valerie and illustrator Sarah Keokanock, I will have these three go-to styles at the ready at my next salon visit!
Olive: I’m thinking of changing my look. What hairstyles would you recommend for me?
Valerie: Long hair is gorgeous on round faces because it lengthens the face. Olive, since you have a round face, your best cuts will fall a few inches below your chin and longer.
Also, keep in mind that long side-swept bangs create angles on a round face. Gentle waves also deflect the roundness of a face.
And, long sexy layered hair with big beachhead waves and a side loose bun are also good options for you.
In the Comments section, tell me which of these hairstyles in your absolute favorite! I can’t decide!
