One thing you can do to end all that "hair_raising" confusion is to spend some time getting to know short hairstyles, medium hairstyle, and long hair style in pictures. Sure, you can find updo hair styles, or an emo girl hair punk style, or a homecoming hair style by looking in a hairstyle magazine, but if you really want to be hot, hot, hot __ check out what's happening in Hollywood hairstyles. Short hairstyles in Hollywood are favored by Cameron Diaz and Sharon Stone, as well as Winona Ryder and superstar Halle Berry. A medium hairstyle has always worked well for Meg Ryan, Sandra Bullock, and Drew Barrymore. But it's a long hair style __ especially a long layered hair style __ that is the signature of stars like Hilary Duff, Mena Suvari, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
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.
