Investing in your hair is important, as it is the crown you never take off. And when it comes to weddings, every girl, be it the bride or her bridesmaids, deserves to have a memorable hairstyle. Every woman attending a wedding function wishes to showcase the best of herself, from the prettiest jewellery to the most flattering hair and makeup. Weddings give us the opportunity to go full glam and embrace our inner divas. 

Whether you fancy yourself in sleek hairstyles or voluminous fishtails, ultimately, it depends on the kind of face shape you have. Amongst other things like jewellery, the shape of your face influences your hairstyles immensely. However, when it comes to finding a hairstyle that truly compliments the shape of your face, it can be quite nerve-wracking to choose between a messy flower updo or voluptuous open curls. 

We, at Shaadisaga, understand how important every hair flip is to a woman, and, so, here is our list of recommended hairstyles according to the shape of your face. 

Hairstyles Based On Different Face Shapes For Brides And Bridesmaids

1. Diamond Face Shape 

A mix of heart and square shapes, this face type is angular and sharp. The best examples of diamond-shaped faces include Maliak Arora and Nargis Fakhri. People with diamond face shapes are gifted with an angular jaw and high cheekbones. The best way to work with this face type is to soften out the sharp features using voluminous hairstyles. Hairstyles with volume create a balance between the edgy features of the face and the softness of hairstyles. While both open hair and updos look good, it is best to avoid tightly tied sleek hairstyles. Here are some examples:

2. Oval Face Shape 

Think Katrina Kaif or Sonam Kapoor. People with oval faces can pull off almost any kind of hairstyle. Their sharp noses and slightly longer foreheads can be complemented with the help of a top knot, a heavy bun, a curly hairdo and much more. Having a side-swept fringe is also helpful if they wish to conceal their foreheads. One of the best hairstyles that oval-faced beauties can pull off is voluminous fishtails with pretty hair accessories. Our best suggestions include these:

3. Round Face Shape 

Another commonly found face shape that is capable of pulling off any hairstyle, examples of such includes famous celebs like Vidya Balan and Mila Kunis. However, they do tend to look plump sometimes. Brides with round face shapes should try textured hairstyles but nothing too over the top. One of our favourite looks round-faced brides can pull off are half-open hair with loose curls and soft strands canvasing the face. Also, people with this face shape can totally rock an open hairstyle but should avoid tightly pulled-back hair as it may make the face look more plump than usual. Here are a few examples:

4. Square Face Shape 

If you think your face shape matches that of either Kareena Kapoor or Anushka Sharma, then the shape you're looking for is square. Square faces have strong jawlines and chiselled cheekbones. Hairstyles that can add softness to their edgy design, much like diamond ones, are always flattering. Textured updos, with flicks and voluminous curls, always compliment people with square faces. It is also essential to avoid extremely sleek hairdos as they may put too much focus on their foreheads and jawlines. Our favourite hairstyles for square-faced people include:

5. Heart Face Shape 

Sharp chins, broader foreheads and a wholesome face are the top features of a heart-shaped face. Similar to celebrities like Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt, brides with heart-shaped faces are the easiest to style. The best way to treat this shape is to encompass it with soft loose curls, with a simple fringe on the side. However, messy updos with loose curls on the sides are also very flattering. Some examples are:
