Visagism is the technique that studies the structure of the face to determine the most flattering ‘looks’ and depending on the shape, you should bet on one or the other.
Each hairstyle is better adapted to one of the four shapes that the face can have, and depending on whether it is oval, round, elongated or with an inverted heart, a specific ‘look’ should be chosen.

Barcelona. (Drafting) .- Choosing the best hair look is not an easy task and most women frequently change their hairstyle until they find the optimal image. The shape of the face is the main factor that determines what style of cut and color suits each person the most. Short or long hair, straight or curly hair, layered or straight cut, highlights or full dye… Visagism, the technique that studies the proportions of the face, determines that each style is better adapted to one of the four facial shapes. Thus, depending on whether you have an oval, elongated, round or heart-shaped face, experts recommend betting on one look or another. Which hairstyle suits the face best?
Women with this type of face should stay away from long hair and opt for short hair with volume. Why? They widen the face and help round it visually, creating proportion and symmetry. You should also avoid straight hair, which emphasize the elongation of the face, and bet on curly and wavy hairstyles.
In this case, the opposite must be done than in the previous one. To hide the roundness and stylize the face, choose hairstyles with medium or long hair that always exceed the chin. The cut should be layered and not add volume, as it adds width. The half shoulder length hair is the best option.
It is that face in which the temples and cheekbones protrude and ends in a raised chin. The half hair close to the face with a side parting is the best option, since it conceals the width of the upper part of the face. However, it should be noted that the middle part provides balance to the face and, if one looks good, it is also a style to value.
It is the wild form and the one that accepts practically any hairstyle. Of all of them, long hair or medium hair scaled laterally – layered cut at the sides – accentuate the face and are the most recommended. If you have a very thin complexion, it is advisable to bet on waves that fall to the shoulders, since they provide volume and delimit the cheekbones. Similarly, the famous bob cut also helps to fill in those skinnier faces.
Expert Tips for Curly and Frizzy Hair
Say goodbye to your brush.
Since curly hair is so dehydrated and brittle, brushing it dry with a traditional bristle brush can wreak havoc on the hair cuticle. Instead, use a brush with wide bristles and gently detangle the knots. “This one is much gentler on the hair, and it doesn’t rub or bother the cuticle,” says Dave Stanwell.
Brush starting from the bottom.
If you start detangling your hair from the top, you risk pushing the knots lower, which can cause breakouts, unruly ends, and frizz. A better technique is to gently remove the knots from the bottom up, using your brush to work each knot separately.
Put on masks.
Giving your hair a deep conditioning mask at least once a week can go a long way to tame frizzy locks, especially if the hair has been chemically treated. Dan Stanwell suggests looking for products with ingredients like milk protein and avocado oil, both of which nourish locks by filling dry, thirsty gaps in the hair structure.
Get regular haircuts.
Cutting your hair every six to eight weeks is essential to keeping your hair healthy. This keeps split ends under control, and makes curly hair more manageable and easy to style. Worried that your stylist might cut too much? “Ask for a knurled blunt,” suggests Dave Stanwell. “While a trim typically requires cutting to the length of the hair, a knurled trim never removes more than a quarter of an inch and concentrates only on the brittle, split ends.”
Treat your ends.
Between cuts, get rid of frizzy hair by using a leave-in conditioner just before styling your hair, paying extra attention to the ends. Tip # 6: Apply a high-powered serum.
” Serums are great styling products for curly hair, especially when you want to let it air dry,” says Dave Stanwell. “These not only fight frizz, but they also help define each curl and add shine.” For best results, apply a coin-sized amount of serum to the palm of your hand and rub with your other hand, then evenly distribute through completely wet hair.
Create a cocktail for curly hair
If you find a serum that leaves your hair flat, try creating your own cocktail by mixing a nourishing oil with your favorite styling product (such as a cream and a mousee ). While the cream or mousse sets your style in place, the oil will hydrate your hair, seal the cuticle, and prevent curls from feeling hard or crisp.
Get closer to the curling iron
It may seem redundant to use a curling iron on curly hair, but it’s a good tool for revitalizing loose, flat locks between washes. The trick is to use a thin barrel pliers (no larger than an inch) to gently curl any strands that have been flattened out.
Try the pineapple trick .
If you want to prevent your curls from changing shape while you sleep, try the pineapple trick. Simply gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Let the curls fall naturally on each side (you’ll look a bit like a pineapple, hence the name), then cover them with a silk scarf or nightcap, and lie down. When you get up and remove the hat and garter, your curls will be intact.
Do not touch!
As tempting as it can be to play with your hair, it’s something you really need to avoid. Touching your hair causes frizz, so once you’ve finished styling, keep your hands away.
