If you?re planning on a whole new cut, check out Groupon?s guide to pairing different face shapes with hairstyles.
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.
At Blush Med Institute, a team of experienced beauty advisers helps clients regain youthful complexions, slim figures, and remove unwanted hair with the latest medical technology. This dedication to high-tech beautification earned the institute shout outs from the press, including Shape magazine.
Though the team takes a medical approach to many treatments, clients never feel as though they are at a doctor's office. Instead, the swanky, blue-hued spa, accented by crystal chandeliers and Italian marble tiles, evokes a feeling of pacific bliss. Working in this tranquil setting, Blush Med Institute's team creates personalized skincare products for each client, custom-blending organic ingredients and aromatherapy to promote long-term health of the skin. To further keep clients comfortable, Blush's beauty advisers refer to their treatments, such as laser hair removal and dermal fillers, as "ouchless," and provide bursts of confetti and marching band music as clients enter treatment rooms.
When looking for ways to pamper and indulge their clients, the aestheticians of Sugaring House draw inspiration from time-honored treatments. They remove unwanted hair by either waxing patches away or by using centuries-old sugaring techniques to naturally leave the skin smooth and stubble-free. Using organic skincare products whenever possible, the aestheticians also perform customized facial treatments intended to even out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliate away impurities, and reduce the signs of enlarged pores. Sugaring House also offers massage appointments, and the therapists can alleviate muscle aches by using flowing Swedish techniques, focused deep-tissue pressure, or a combination of Swedish strokes and assisted yoga stretches.
To the skilled staff at Edens Wellness Spa, skin is somewhat of an artistic medium. Makeup artist and licensed aesthetician Tiffany Aldosari doesn't use a paintbrush or slather your face with sculptor's clay, but she does personalize each facial and skincare treatment to accommodate each client's individual skin type.
The spa also offers waxing and threading treatments to remove unwanted hair. Threading specialist Bedour Aldosari can help clean up eyebrows, upper lips, legs, and bikini lines. For full-body relaxation, the team presents spa packages. These include the couple's package—a romantic blend of facials, detoxifying massages, and back scrubs for two.
