Getting the right hairstyle or cut can be a tricky thing. It’s seems easy when we see our favourite celebrities pulling off amazing look after amazing look. The reality however, is that different face shapes, hair thickness and even colour effect what does and doesn’t look good.
Check out this list of 30 Hairstyles to find the one that is right for you!
1. The Shag
We’ll start easy. The Shag, a popular messy layered style, actually looks good on pretty much anyone!
Dreads have made a serious comeback since their hey-day in the 70’s. While they typically look best on people with thick, dark hair, some fair faced beauties have managed to pull it off as well!
3. Pixie Cut
Another popular look, the Pixie looks best on Oval, Heart and Square shaped faces.
4. Surfer Hair
A personal favourite, this beachy style comes in varying lengths and looks best on those with thin – medium thick hair.
5. The Chignon
This gorgeous style works on all face shapes. But be sure to keep it loose if you have a long face!
6. The Finger Wave
This Hollywood starlet style is extremely effective on those with striking facial features.
Fringe (or bangs) is a look that anyone can pull off. There are many variations. Find the look that works best for you.
8. The Bob
Another universal style. The Bob looks great on everyone!
This edgy style looks best on those who can pull off a short cut. It’s not recommended for long or oval face shapes.
10. The Rachel Cut
This iconic hairstyle works best on square faces.
11. The Top Knot
Also fairly universal, the Top Knot looks great on people who don’t have long faces.
12. The Afro
Either you can work an Afro, or you can’t. There is no in between. You need to have the right hair texture and an oval or square face.
13. The Feathered Look
Made famous by Farrah Fawcett, this soft style works on those with long faces.
Another style that can look amazing or terrible, cornrows depend on the shape of your head.
15. The Blowout
This Blowout look is very versatile. It works best on people who have long wavy hair and an oval or long face shape.
Naturally, Ringlets look best on those who have curly hair. If you are doing it with a curling iron, it is most effective on those with a medium hair thickness.
17. The Duck Tail
While the Duck Tail was a popular look in the 60’s, it is hard to pull off in a modern world. It looks most appealing on those with thin hair and with round or heart shaped faces.

This is Posh’s classic do. It will make sharp features appear sharper. Avoid this look if you have a long or oval face.
19. Long Braid
This classic style looks great on all! However, if you have a long or square shaped face, keep it loose.
This is the look for anyone with thick hair! For those of your with thin hair, I’d recommend another hairstyle.
