Q: How do I figure out what haircut/style will suit me? — Katherine

From The Styling Edit Archives

A: It's all about being practical, what kind of lifestyle you have and blending your lifestyle with your looks.

It's also about body proportions.

If you have a long upper body, with a larger chest and wide shoulders, you need longer hair so everything goes curvy and your whole body and style blends together.

If you have a short upper body, then your hair shouldn't be too long, because it will make you look shorter.

Another consideration is that if you have a long face, we have to create a fringe so that it softens the length of your face with long layers.

If you have a round face, I would leave the sides of your hair longer than your face, to elongate.
