A fresh colour and cut personalised to enhance and compliment your face shape, skin tone & personality can make a huge difference to your self confidence, making it easier to take on challenges/situations that you may have otherwise avoided.
Below is a table listing our various face shapes & the styles best suited to enhance your natural beauty.

Oval The length of your face equals 1.5 times the width Most styles & fringes inc. Bobs & pixie cuts All

Avoid extra long styles as these will elongate your face.
All
