Have you ever wondered why certain makeups and hairstyles look so gorgeous on Instagram but do not work for you? This is simply because of one reason – different face shapes. Every person has a different face cut; some are born with strong jawlines with wide foreheads while others have pointed chins and defined cheekbones. Different hair works for different face cuts and you need to know what the shape of your face is and what hairstyles will suit your face cut.

First, you need to know what the shape of your face is. Scroll down to read about the different face shapes and how you can determine yours and then check out the hairstyles for your Sangeet ceremony that will compliment your face structure and any outfit you wear!

Hairstyles for Round Face Shape

If the vertical to a horizontal ratio of your face is equal, you have a round face. This means that the features of your face structure are soft and rounded. Your chin is round (without any definition) along with your cheeks, which are the widest part of your face.

The best trick to pick a hairstyle for round face shape is to always have something on the face, be it hair accessories or just some flicks!

Just like the Matha Patti, some hair tendrils will also define your face and give it some structure. This braid hairstyle is perfect for a big fat Indian Sangeet!

Hairstyles for Oval Face Shape

An oval face shape is longer than the round face. While your chin is round, your forehead is the widest part of your face. If your cheekbones are not too high, you should know that you have an oval face structure. It is quite similar to a round face but here, the length is larger than the width!

When you are getting ready, always keep in mind that balance is everything in your looks. Centre partitioned hairstyles will look the best on you. Check out these hairstyles and tell us what you think in the comments!

The opposite goes for this hairstyle. If your makeup is simple, a curly hairstyle with some hair jewellery will compliment you Sangeet outfit beautifully!

Hairstyles for Square Face Shape

It is quite simple determining what the cut of your face is amongst all these different face shapes. You have a square face structure is you have a defined chin but your cheeks are flat and almost symmetrical. Along with a pointed chin, you are also blessed with a defined jawline that anyone would kill for! Messy hairstyles are the best for square face shape.

From all the different face shapes, a heart face cut is the only one that can carry almost every hairstyle in this list. We have picked up 2 simple and classic hairstyles that will go with the type of garment!
