Square Face.

A strong jawline forming a uniform or straighter line is a square face, celebrity examples include Olivia Wilde, Lucy Liu, and Pink. Either draw attention away from jawline altogether if you don’t like it or if you feel it suits you show it off in the correct way. Notice how Pink does it, high roof and lift giving length or experiment with cuts that hide your jawline. Getting outer steps and layers that divert attention from the jaw are ideal. You could also get an A-line bob with longer layers giving the illusion of a more oval face.

Long Face.

Like Liv Tyler, Gisele Bundchen and Kate Beckinsale. So you have a long face which you need to round up a little to bring it nearer to an oval shape. Pixie cuts would look great. Add some bangs and layers next to your face which gives width. Experiment with side fringes and curls. Steer away from straight cuts because they’ll make your face look even longer.

Heart-shaped face.

For example Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, and Jennifer Love-Hewitt. A wider forehead and cheeks narrowing to the chin can be considered heart-shaped.  Suits long to medium hair as any volume concentrated above the ears can turn hearts into triangles so short styles should be quite flat or have short curly layers and side fringes along with bangs. A Straight bob also looks good along with layered, twisted curls.
