Q&A with Nita, Stylist

Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I suggest a different style that is suitable.

Fashionable hairstyles are constantly changing. How do you keep up-to-date on popular trends?
I go to hair shows, take classes, and watch YouTube.

What's the biggest mistake you see clients make when they style their hair at home?
They use too much heat.

In one language, the word "Lavand" means a small Mediterranean flower. In another, it means a sultry woman.?At Salon Lavand, both definitions are apt. As with the word, the salon deals in beauty, and the staff?which features an internationally trained senior artistic director and a team of senior stylists?summons beauty with elegant hair and cosmetic treatments. Whether clients opt for a cut and blowdry, color gloss treatment, or a Moroccan Oil restorative hair mask, they'll be in the hands of a stylist who brings experience, training, and creativity to the chair.?

Salon Lavand also features a blowdry bar as well as a brow bar. At the former, stylists thread, wax, and tint eyebrows to give clients elegant, put-together profiles that look good at clubs, at the office, or on homemade counterfeit currency.

If you?re planning on a whole new cut, check out Groupon?s guide to pairing different face shapes with hairstyles.

What Haircut is Best for Your Face Shape?

Round (nearly equal in length and width with soft, curved edges): Balance is key to any great hairstyle, so those with round faces will benefit from layers that are long or asymmetrical; hard lines help even out a soft face shape. Hair that hits at the shoulders or collarbone provides a slimming effect. Those looking to go shorter should go very short, as volume on the sides can make faces look wider.

Square (nearly equal in length and width, but with sharp edges): Just as round faces need hard lines to cut the softness, square faces benefit from a little softening in the form of layers, waves, or razored or feathered ends. Square faces can pull off many different lengths but benefit from shorter face-framing pieces or long, piece-y bangs, both of which help to visually soften sharp angles. A part that is slightly off center can help blur harsh edges and extra length can help a square face look more oval.

Heart-shaped (wider on top, narrower toward the chin): Full or side-swept bangs help to draw focus to the eyes and away from a pronounced chin, as does a long bob that is all one-length. Waves or curls that hit right below the jaw line help fill in and balance the chin-area, but putting too much curl or frizz on top can make the brow appear wider.

Oval (a long face in which the brow, cheekbones, and jaw are of nearly equal widths): Long faces are the most versatile and can handle styles of varying length and texture. Bangs and cheek-length layers can both balance by adding width, as can waves, curls, or a deep off-center part.
