When it comes to hair styling, you all must have been thoroughly scrutinizing and securing a set of bridal hairstyles for your wedding or upcoming festive occasions. You might be contemplating so many options which would look best for you. Or what hairstyle goes for your wedding?

Well, it might be hard to incorporate, but not every hairstyle suits every face shape. Some faces can carry off every style while others might look absolutely flat.

Yep! You heard it right, every hairstyle works best only if chosen according to one's face shape, and the same goes for hair accessories.

Whether you've got a Square Jaw or Prominent Cheeks choosing the right hairstyle is extremely important, recommends hair expert Poonam Lalwani. If you want your locks to look perfect and grab the attention of everybody, then you must consider the hairdos which will complement your face structure.

Here are some instances of bridal hairstyles that Poonam Lalwani, “an expert hairstylist and makeup artist in Pune and Maharashtra,” want you to achieve for your wedding, reception, or other occasions.

The first rule, of course, is to figure out your face shape. Read on to discover the top tips Poonam has to offer for each look when planning your big day Barnett.

Hairstyle for Oval Face Shape:

People with an oval face shape are blessed with impeccable face features to pull off almost every hairstyle. They have slightly sleek noses, broad foreheads, prominent cheeks, and a heavenly tapered chin.

These people can wear side fringes to cover their forehead or even side parting hairstyles that look stunning on them. You can look after some oval-shaped celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma.

Add width by creating an up style at the midsection of the crown or to one side. Here are some pictures of Poonam Lalwani’s bride with oval cut-

Hairstyle for Round Face Shape:

The positive news about a round face is that the cherubim-like cheeks often give a beautifully youthful aspect. People with almost equal width and length of face fall in this category. It is one of the most challenging faces cut to style. You might have to work a little harder to find a more sophisticated style to suit your shape.

You can go for hairdos that cover your plumpy cheeks by losing some front hair strands or adding; some texture to your hair.

Ms. Poonam’s top tip: “If you have a round face, I’d recommend going with half up and half down hairstyles, big voluminous, open hair curls with center partition, braids with loose front face-framing hair. Avoid pulling back hair or sleek buns or braids.

Hairstyle for Heart Face Shape:

You should consider yourself lucky if you are blessed with the heart-shaped face as it's credited with being the easiest and most complimentary to work with. You must think of Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt for your hairstyle considerations as these celebs have a heart-shaped face structure.

Heart-shaped faces are wider at the forehead than the chin, and look good with hairstyles that draw attention to the cheekbones and shift focus from the angular chin.

Brides-to-be can consider hairdos with soft, loose curls, side fringe, and braids, braid on crown part and loose side braids, sleek or pulled back buns, messy textured loose side curls.

Don't choose a hairstyle that gives the added height as it may end up making your face appear longer.

Hairstyle for Square Face Shape:

The face cut has an almost equal width of cheekbone, forehead, and jawline in which the jawline is prominent, and you need a hairdo that can soften your strong jawline. You can opt for the hairstyles that look best on diamond-cut people. You can look after some square-shaped celebrities like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Athiya Shetty.

Side fringes with textured updos, side voluminous curls, and braids look flattering on square cut people. Sleek and pull-back hairdos can accentuate their broad forehead and sharp jawline, so avoid these hair looks. Hair looks include-

Hairstyle for Diamond Face Shape:

A hybrid of both a square and a heart shape, a diamond face is widest at the cheekbones. People with diamond shapes have prominent cheeks with sharp and angular jawlines. You can follow celebrities having diamond profiles like Nargis Fakhri and Shilpa Shetty.

You can work with hairstyles that soften out and balance your sharp and prominent features. The long length is great when it comes to diamond-shaped faces because it is so versatile.

Hairstyles include soft, voluminous open hairstyles, loose and textured hair updos, half up and half down hairstyles by adding some loose hair around the jawline to conceal sharpness. Never go for sleek hairstyles that will accentuate your blunt features.
