When you have healthy locks that can be flaunted as is, you need not make explicit and drastic haircuts to make noticeable changes. Something as simple as changing the parting of your hair can make all the difference and compliments will pour in from everywhere.

How to part your hair according to your face shape

Once you have covered the greys with hair colour light brown or natural brown hair colour, you can flaunt them open. Just learn the best way to part your hair for your face shape. The hair colour and parting can add contouring to your face and highlight the sharp facial points simultaneously.

a. Round face shape

As the name suggests a round face is symmetrical from forehead to the chin. It looks chubby around your cheeks. Layered long tresses with natural hair colour light brown or dark brown make the face appear elongated and reduce the chubbiness too. Alternatively, you can also opt for a side part that is too deep towards your ears. This will make the hair appear fuller on the crown and give your face an elongated look.

b. Heart face shape

A heart-shaped face has a characteristic broad forehead and a sharp, pointed chin. If you do a center parting then it will make draw all the attention to your chin and make it appear even sharper. To balance off the features of your face, you must part your hair a little off the center. The parting can be on either side from the center of your eyebrows. This will add softness to your facial features and make you look amazingly beautiful.

c. Diamond face shape

A diamond face shape has a sharp jawline that goes high up to your ears and a pointed chin. The forehead is narrower and the cheekbones are broader. If you have this face shape then it depends on whether you want to accentuate your cheekbones or not. For some, it is a blessing while some want to soften it. So, your tresses in hair colour light brown or natural brown can be parted accordingly. Go for center parting if you want to highlight your cheekbones. However, if you wish to soften them then go for a bouncy side part. Allow your hair to fall on your face and brush your cheeks so that they don’t look visibly edgy.

d. Oval face

Oval shape is one of those picture-perfect face shapes. The beauty of this face shape is that any and every hair parting looks good on it. You can sport front bangs sliding over your eyebrows for a cute, sober look with hair colour light brown. You can also choose a center part that spotlights the symmetry of your face or pull your hair together on one side for an asymmetrical look.

e. Long or oblong face shape

As the name suggests, an oblong face is rather longer face with broader temples. Ladies with an oblong face shape have that perfect jawline that many die for. To flaunt your jawline, it is best to pull back your brown hair colour locks and ditch the hair parting all together. This will bring all the attention to your high points. On the other hand, if you want to create an illusion of roundness then you should go for short bangs.

Now that you know about your face shape, why not colour your hair at home for healthy tresses. Natural colours of brown hair colour are evergreen and you can safely try them at any time of the year. You can cover the greys using beautiful shades of brown with Godrej Expert Rich Crème Hair Colour. It not just covers your greys but takes care of the health of your hair too.

Once done, leave the hair colour for 30 minutes and rinse it till the water turns clear.
