Take a closer look at your face, study your features and, with some research, locate a haircut that compliments your structure appropriately, some tips to keep in mind when selecting the best haircut including the following:

  • The shape of your face is the most crucial factor to consider when choosing a haircut that suits your features.
  • People with big noses should prioritize volume. You can hide your nose and draw attention away from it by keeping a notable volume of hair at the crown.
  • If you don't like your small chin, a bob that is shorter at the nape while longer at the front would do wonders for your situation.

One or two bad haircuts should never scare you away from trying something new. Bad haircuts are never permanent, so trying having fun even as you attempt to transform them into more attractive alternatives.
