Soft layers that suit 80% of face shapes

Hi there my friends,

A great layer shape (as seen below)  truly can be designed to suit 80% of face shapes.  As you all know by now my goal is to always create an oval face shape so with this in mind the following are helpful tips:-

1. Wispy outlines – softens the facial features.

2. Asymmetric lines  – side parting and sweeping fringes (‘ovals out’) square and round face shapes.

3. Building width at the temples slims a face.

4. The razored outline and layers allows for great versatility in dressing and restyling hair.

5. Tipped color ends add interests and makes a simple layer more unique and fashion forward.

6. A headband is a great fashion accessory.
