Face framing layers may be for you. Luckily, there are face framing layers to suit everyone, no matter what face shape you have, or the length or texture of your hair. In this article, we will give you the lowdown on different styles of face framing layers to suit your face shape and personal style.   What Are Face Framing Layers? The simple answer is this: face framing layers can either help you make certain features of your face more prominent, or they can help soften certain facial features. This is done through the strategical styling of hair that is positioned around the face at various lengths. This may be in the form of a shorter fringe (bangs) or longer pieces of hair either side of your face, cut at a length that complements your features and personal style.   Styling Face Framing Layers Based on Face Shape What makes face framing layers unique is that there are a variety of styles that are better suited to different face shapes. For example, for heart-shaped faces, utilising your fringe to soften the wider forehead is in your best interest. Oval Faces: Oval faces are characterised by symmetry and elongated features. There are a wide variety of layered styles that provide face framing that can be used to accentuate the jawline and cheekbones of oval faces. For example, a layered bob is great, especially if you have thinner hair. A layered fringe swept to the side along with the layering throughout provides texture to the thinner hair. This gives off the illusion of not only a sharper jawline but also thicker hair. Face Framing Hair Style Highlight: Layered Bob Heart-Shaped Faces As described earlier, those with heart-shaped faces tend to really suit a fringe. This is because a fringe will take attention away from the wider forehead which is a characteristic of individuals with heart-shaped faces. Additionally, a “piecey” fringe will help soften the strong jawline that most heart-shaped faces come with. An effective use of a fringe for heart-shaped faces is seen by Reese Witherspoon. Her hair is below shoulder-length and her fringe is styled to the side to accentuate the middle of her face and her eyes. Most Suitable Face Framing Hair Styles: Piecey Fringe Round Faces Individuals with round faces typically are the same width and length, meaning that it is important to maintain a softer jawline while thinning out the middle of one’s face since it is the widest part of the face. One of the best face framing layered styles for this face shape is a side-swept bob. Bob hairstyles are on the shorter side, typically falling just below the jawline at the chin. Short, blunt bobs with centre parts tend to make a rounder face appear rounder, so using a side part and textured layers will create a side-swept look that accentuates the eyes and diverts one’s attention away from the roundness of the jawline. Most Suitable Face Framing Hair Styles: Side-Swept Bob Square Faces Square faces are similar to round faces, in that they are the same width and length. However, square faces have more chiselled features. Cutting/styling your hair so it is just above shoulder length and layering the pieces at the front to create a frame cut is ideal in softening the sharpness of a square face. Curling the front pieces to add some softer curls can also help in softening the cheekbones and jawline. Most Suitable Face Framing Hair Styles: Frame Cut (with or without loose waves) Diamond Faces Diamond faces typically are more narrow at the forehead and chin areas but have wider, more defined cheekbones. By adding some curl and volume to your hair, it softens the definition provided by your cheekbones. However, curls that are framed around the face that are paired with an updo are the best to soften diamond faces. Most Suitable Face Framing Hair Styles: Updo paired with soft layered curls   Can I DIY Face Framing Layers? Yes!
