In this article, we’ll guide you through the hair trends of 2023.

1. Haircut for: Round face

For soft, round faces, we aim to create an impression of length. A mid-length or long cut with some height on top would be a perfect choice. We advise you to avoid cuts that stop at the chin, which could accentuate fullness. In 2023, the long shaggy cut or Wolf Cut, in bohemian and casual styles, adds precious height and is particularly fashionable.

2. Oval face

For those blessed with an oval face, considered the perfect shape to sport almost any haircut, we suggest layered cuts with longer locks on the forehead to accentuate your beauty. In 2023, the long, wavy cut is particularly in vogue and perfectly complements this face shape.

3. Square face

Characterized by strong, distinct and determined features. The remedy? Cuts that soften those angular features. Layered haircuts, ranging from mid-length to long, are simply exquisite. The long plunging bob (with or without bangs), a key trend for 2023, perfectly envelops this kind of face.

4. Rectangular face

With its apparent length, the aim is to create balance by adding volume to the sides. Curly or wavy cuts are perfect for this challenge. The curly bob cut is the embodiment of the 2023 trend, and it blends wonderfully with this face shape.

Remember: the perfect haircut isn’t just the one that’s fashionable, but the one that makes you feel beautiful and confident.

5. Heart-shaped face

For heart-shaped, charming faces with wide foreheads and pointed chins, hairstyles that add volume to the jawline while minimizing forehead width are ideal. Soft squares and pixie cuts are in vogue in 2023 and sublimate this face shape.

6. Diamond-shaped face

A diamond-shaped face has high cheekbones and a narrower forehead and chin. Cuts that add volume to the forehead and chin, such as bobs with bangs, are ideal. The bob with straight bangs is a strong trend for 2023 that suits this face shape perfectly.

7. Elongated face

For elongated faces, the aim is to add width. Voluminous haircuts, such as curly or layered cuts, are ideal. The shaggy cut with thick bangs is a major trend in 2023 and is perfectly suited to this face shape.

8. Pear-shaped face

The aim is to minimize jaw width while widening the forehead. Voluminous, textured haircuts with bangs are ideal. The pixie with long bangs is a key 2023 trend that complements this face shape beautifully.

9. Triangular face

With a wide forehead and narrow jawline, the goal is to balance these two elements. Long cuts with volume at the bottom, such as layered cuts, are emerging as a perfect solution. The long layered cut is a 2023 trend that’s perfect for this face shape.

10. Diamond-shaped face

Diamond-shaped faces have prominent cheekbones and narrower foreheads and chins. Cuts that add volume to the forehead and chin, such as layered haircuts, are ideal. The long bob with layered highlights is a strong 2023 trend that suits this face shape.

In conclusion

Each cut must be unique, made-to-measure and adapted not only to your face shape, but also to your hair texture, lifestyle and personality.

The perfect haircut isn’t just the one that’s fashionable, but the one that makes you feel beautiful and confident. By understanding your face shape and working with our team of experts, you can find a cut that enhances you in the best possible way. Don’t forget that the most important thing is to feel good about yourself. Come and see us at the Bal des Créateurs!
