Cool Summer Pixie Cuts for Every Face Shape - D'Ametri's Salon

Summer is in full swing and everywhere people are trying to find ways to beat the heat. One easy way to deal with the rising heat is a change of hairstyle. If you’ve toyed with the idea of chopping off your lovely locks for a light and breezy pixie cut but worry you won’t be able to pull it off, keep reading. Here are some tips for choosing a cool pixie that will look great with your face shape.

Square Faces

If your face is square the key to pulling off a super short cut like a pixie is a rounded fringe and layers throughout. This will soften the angles to give your face a slight rounder appearance. Blunt cuts and straight edges should be avoided. They would give your face a boxlike appearance.

Round Faces

A round face shape presents a challenge when going super short. You’ll want the sides and back short and flat with choppy layers with lots of volume on top for a visually lengthening effect. Angled asymmetrical bangs can also help counteract the curves and add some structure.

Oval Faces

The features of an oval-shaped face are already in perfect balance, so if you have an oval face you can go wild with any cut you’d like. Take advantage of your freedom of selection and go for a bold and daring cut that will turn heads.

Diamond Faces

Diamond-shaped faces are very angular. Many of the same cautions for square faces apply to diamonds as well. No blunt edges or straight-cut bangs. An asymmetrical cut with choppy layers and softly rounded wispy bangs will help soften the angles and balance your features.

Heart Faces

Long side sweeping bangs will accentuate your cheekbones to visually narrow the forehead and widen the chin of a heart-shaped face. Avoid too much lift and volume on top which will only call attention to a narrow chin, and super short bangs will expose more forehead area making it appear even wider.

Long Faces

For long faces bangs are a must. Longer hair on top swept smoothly forward from the crown and then to the side ending in brow skimming bangs will visually shorten your face to bring everything into balance. Avoid volume on top which will make your face appear longer.
