Best Hairstyles For Triangle Face Shape

The triangle face shapes are usually narrow at the forehead, and widest at the jawline. This kind of a face shape tends to have its focus on the pointy chin that over all invariably gives the face a mean and angry look. Definitely not something you want to look like at all times! So the best hairstyles for these people are cuts which accentuate their foreheads & cheekbones and which take away attention from their pointed chin.

Short hairstyles for triangle shaped faces:

We Indians love long luscious hair but if you have triangular face shape, then it’s best to keep your hair short. Why? Because long hairstyles tend to accentuate the pointed chin and make the face look more triangular.

Short hairstyles are best for this face shape. Short hairstyles with waves and bangs are also great. The trick is to take attention away from the chin. But do keep in mind that straight hair is not good for this face shape so keep your short hair in curls or waves. Try some romantic vintage curls or waves.

  • Try asymmetrical bobs
  • Bangs are great but they should be side swept and not falling directly on the chin or near it
