Haircuts That Accentuate Your Best Features

Megan McIntyre

We all have one feature that we think is our best–that one part of our face that we think makes us look fabulous and unique. Did you know that the way you style your hair can actually help make your most amazing features stand out? It’s true! Caile Noble, stylist at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon gave us the scoop on what hairstyles you should choose to help accentuate your eyes, lips and cheekbones.

1. Entrancing Eyes 

If you want to put your eyes on display, there’s no better frame than a bang. “Any fringe in general will help put the focus on eye contact,” says Noble. He recommends a blunt, heavy bang cut right above the eye or a soft, side bang like Tina Fey‘s to let one eye peek out, making it the center of attention.

2. Lush Lips 

If you want to play up a pretty pucker, opt for styles that open up your face. “You want to focus on framing your face, particularly at your jaw, with hairstyles that open up your features and allow them to be seen”, says Noble. He suggests a strong, graduated bob that “points” directly at the lips or a long, layered hairstyle like Marisa Miller‘s that has a round shape, allowing hair to cascade down and around the face.

3. Killer Cheekbones 

If you were blessed with gorgeous cheekbones, show them off with a blunt, rounded bang like Jennifer Hudson‘s. “A heavy bang that rounds at the eyes and is cut deep into the hairline and temple drops and allows the hair to come back around to your cheeks,” says Noble.
