Most of us find it hard to look for the hairstyle that perfectly matches our face shape. You see that hair you like in a picture, but you wonder, “Will this look good on me?” After all, not all hairstyles match just any face shape. So the first thing to figure out to finding the right hairstyle for you is actually knowing what your face shape is. Is it oval, round, square, oblong, or heart-shaped? Only once you figure out your face shape, can you confidently look into hair trend choices that will match you.

But no worries ladies! We’re here to offer some help. We’ve rounded up 10 Filipina celebrities with different face shapes, so we can take a look at their hairstyles to serve as our own guide!

5. Heart-shaped face

If you have a broad forehead, slim cheeks, pointy-chin, and a narrow jawline, yes you’re blessed with a heart-shaped face! There are many local celebrities who have the same face shape as you do. Speaking of, one of which is none other than Liza Soberano, deemed as one of the most beautiful faces of today. For the hair peg inspiration, you can definitely opt for a medium-length wavy hair with front wispy fringe bangs to highlight the flattering edgy features of your face.

Back in 2015, the whole universe fell in love with the charming appearance, wit, and personality of Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach. And just like Liza Soberano, Pia also has a heart-shaped face. For the hair peg, you can try the look Queen P had when she slayed the short chic bob.

4. Square-shaped face

If your forehead and jawline appear to have the same width, you have a square-shaped face just like the It’s Showtime host and dyosa herself, Anne Curtis! With the wide face shape, the goal is to soften the angles to create a narrower illusion of the forehead and jawline. Just like Anne, you can achieve this dyosa look by opting for a blunt bob that goes along with a simple yet sleek and bouncy short hair.

Another celebrity who has a square-shaped face is no other than the multimedia star herself, Toni Gonzaga. If you’re a total risk taker and you want to go short all the way, go for a pixie cut! It would add length to your face and create a subtle diagonal illusion.

3. Oval-shaped face

If your face appears to be longer and with a narrower jaw than cheekbones, you have an oval-shaped face same as with One More Chance star, Bea Alonzo. You might want to go for an asymmetrical bob which adds a sophisticated and V-shape illusion to your face. You can also part your hair in the mid-section just like she does!

Jessy Mendiola, one of the country’s sexiest according to a men’s magazine, also has an oval-shaped face. She had semi-blunt bangs to let her cheekbones become more prominent and to also highlight the curve of her chin.

2. Round-shaped face

If you have a wide hairline and full cheeks, you have a round-shaped face just like the former teen queen, Kathryn Bernardo. Long layers are suited best to lengthen the angle of the face. But with Kathryn’s hair peg, you can also try curtain bangs to deviate from the wide feature of your round face and instead, add an angular highlight to it.

The former child star and now a certified romcom movie star Angelica Panganiban also has full cheeks which make her appear younger. Those who have round -shaped faces are often pointed out having baby-faces because of that youthful and vibrant look. But if you really want to cut your hair short, you can still do so by opting for a wavy lob (long bob). Aside from its elegance, this short messy hair look adds an edgier effect to your face.

1. Oblong-shaped face

If your face structure looks narrow and long, you have an oblong-shaped face! Julia Barretto, one of the most promising stars this generation, also has this kind of face shape. For Julia’s hair, she opts for a Korean-inspired chic and classy look. She also got wispy bangs creating a triangular illusion which adds versatility to her face.

Comedian host and vlogger Alex Gonzaga looks simple yet classy in her one-length wavy hair. With her elongated oblong-shaped face, parting her hair in the midsection creates an illusion of having plump cheeks.
