A style that is slightly longer than the chin, shaped and softened around the edges, flatters a square face. This gives the illusion of length to your face. Hair should not be cut shorter than, or in line with the chin, as this would make the face appear squarer. Avoid center partings and straight bangs. For someone with a heart shaped face balance between the forehead and chin is very important. Layered hair shaped along the face near the chin, thick at the bottom and with layered bangs will provide fullness where needed. Straight styles, which cling to the face, would accentuate the narrow jaw line and is not recommended.
Short hairstyles are bold and breezy, as long as they do not present you with a chipmunk effect. A full_length cut with long and flowing locks is able to slim the appearance of the face by effectively hiding the sides, while a short cut is more inclined to leave the face exposed and bare. Some of the short styles can even curl around the cheeks, which will make the face seem even rounder, and therefore you want to make sure to choose a cut that is stylish and chic, and doesn't leave the face looking chubby.
