Finding the right hairstyle often begins with determining your face shape, resulting in a more flattering style that you are sure to love. The Today Show recently asked Paul Labrecque to share his favorite styles for four common face shapes and provide four models with a makeover. Paul is recognized as a top celebrity stylist and was happy to give his expert opinions on what styles would work best for certain face shapes.
He checked in from The Rittenhouse Spa and Club in Philadelphia to help make these beautiful women look their best. You can check out the stunning makeover results on the Today Show website.

Want a hairstyle that flatters your face shape? You can start by looking in the mirror!
If you, like the models in the Today Show story, want to find the most flattering hairstyle, you'll need to start by determining your face shape. Take time to study your face in the mirror; it may be helpful to outline your face shape in the mirror using a dry erase marker (it will easily wipe off the surface of the mirror when you are done). Then step back and determine which of the four main shape categories you face falls into.
Your face is longer than it is wider.
Go for bangs! Your face shape is ideally suited for a style that has longer bangs, especially if they are slightly longer on the sides.
Your forehead is the widest part of your face and you have an angled chin.
Try long bangs with a deep part. Shorters styles are going to be the most flattering, as they will balance out the narrower part of your jawline.
Your face is roughly equal in both length and width.
Go for a long bob. These versatile cuts help to lengthen your face and neck and can actually make you look thinner.
Your cheekbones are the widest part of your face.
Choose chin-length or shoulder-length styles. This will balance out the shape of your face and frame your best features.
Have a face shape that doesn't neatly fall into one of these four categories? It's best to consult an experience Paul Lebrecque stylist. They'll help you determine which styles are best suited to your particular face shape!
