Hair cutting or hair trimming is intended to create or maintain a specific shape and form. Its extent may range from merely trimming the uneven ends of the hair to a uniform length to completely shaving the head.
The overall shape of the hairstyle is usually maintained by trimming it at regular intervals. Although trimming enhances the hair's appearance by removing damaged or split ends, it does not promote faster growth or remove all damage along the length of the hair.
Stylists often wash a subject's hair first, so that the hair is cut while still slightly damp. Compared to dry hair, wet hair can be easier to manage in a cut/style situation because the added weight and surface tension of the water cause the strands to stretch downward and cling together along the hair's length, holding a line and making it easier for the stylist to create a form.
For those seeking individuality and style there are many hair cuts out there. We do come across people sporting badly cut hairstyle or ill fitting hairstyles. So how do we ensure it doesn't happen with us and we choose a style that fits our appearance? It is important to keep in mind that some hair cuts look differently on different facial shapes.
There are a few different facial shapes. There are round faces, square faces, oval faces, triangular faces and heart-shaped faces.
People with round face can either sport medium or long hair. If the hair is medium, then it is always better to have step cut with oval shape or straight cut. The multi layers ads bounce to the hair and goes well with the round face. If the hair is long then keep it straight with a trim and maintain the length.
For those that have oval face shapes hair cuts should not be at all a problem. With this shape you can have almost any hair cut! Angular bobs will be great to promote bone structure while blunt bangs will show off gorgeous eyes. For those who like longer hair styles think of the surfer girl hair style. They are typically long and wavy.
People with heart shaped face can keep changing their hairstyle more often for very many styles suit their face. They can easily carry off short and medium haircuts. However keeping less hair on the forehead and more towards the chin will make them look good. Both blunt as well as steps will look very good on them.
A square face with silky hair can be well suited with medium length blunt cut with a few steps on the hair in front of the temples. Always use side partition to take the focus off the square face. The temples should be covered or hidden with a short cut lock of hair preferably with waves.
Most of the hairstyles suit a triangular face. They look good both with short as well as long hair too. If the hair is long and silky, have a center partition and a free flowing hair with straight trim. If the hair is short, they a beautiful veg cut or a step cut with a U shape will look good. But short cut with a blunt will not suit the triangular shaped face.
