THE HAIRCUT YOU’LL BE OPTING FOR THIS SUMMER ACCORDING TO YOUR FACE SHAPE

1235429-1_og

 

Going in for a chop or change isn’t as simple as pointing to a picture and wishing your way to stardom status hair. In fact, your face shape is the true determinant when it comes to picking the perfect hairstyle. But what works best for your face shape? Vogue sought out to answer your every hair query from celebrity hair stylist, Anthony Nader, ahead of summer to ensure your next chop is your best one yet.

The tip? “Because of its symmetry and balance, the oval face shape is your ultimate goal to reaching when thinking about your new haircut,” says Nader.

Click through to discover the style you’ll be opting for the next time you hit the salon.

 

 

Round shaped face 

“Go for side swept bangs as this softens around the edges,” says Nader. “The angle of the bangs create more length in your face and provide a more oval shape – which is key.”

Longer hairstyles: 

“Long hair is totally a goer here, however, ensure to have a few chunky pieces cut in and around the face,” says Nader. “This opens up your tiny features, rather than closing them in and hiding them away.”

Shorter hairstyles: 

“Shorter hair shapes work a dream – and have fun experimenting with them,” says Nader. The trick? “Steer clear of the jawline otherwise the roundness of your face will only be enhanced,” he confirms.

 

 

Square shaped face 

“Bangs are all about illusion and this is key for square face shapes which tend to be wider at the cheeks and more angular around the jawline,” Nader shares. “A soft A-shape cut works best for women with square faces. The textured ends create angles, which help to soften the jawline and draw attention to your eyes.”

“No matter the length you choose to wear, from here on in, keep your hair strands with movement and not perfectly straight,” he says. And why? “Because having straight strands will only showcase your angular features.”

Nader recommends those with square faces to style a bend or a haphazard wave throughout hair to soften the overall look.

 

 

Oblong shaped face 

According to Nader, “Opting for a layered fringe and creating an A-shape look will help soften and balance your features. Actually, any strong angular features will be taken down a notch and softened,” he adds.

Nader’s tip? “Keep the length in your hair here and make sure you add some layers around the jawline as to allow the oblong shape to appear more symmetrical and balanced,” he says.

 

 

Heart shaped face 

“Heart shaped bangs for a heart shaped face as these will soften your look,” says Nader. “This means your bangs will be longer on the outer edges and slightly shorter in the middle.”

“The beauty about these bangs are that they are ideally overgrown and wont need a lot of upkeep due to the natural shape which blends beautifully with shorter, skimming layers around your face,” he shares.

He continues, “You can keep your hair length from medium to longer here, keeping your layers textured and not just one length.”

Why do heart shaped faces want to achieve textured layers? “Having one length will only emphasis your cheeks and small forehead,” Nader confirms.

 

 

Long face shape 

“Longer face shapes allow for more experimentation around the higher forehead region,” says Nader. “This is where you and your hairdresser can be more strategic about which parts of your face you wish to highlight or soften.”

For example, Nader tells us, “Creating a diagonal angle on your face will help keep people’s eyes focused on your centre features – like your eyes, and lips – rather than on your forehead or lower parts of your face.”

“This summer think 60s Woodstock era. Keep your tresses long and at one length.”

Alternatively, “Shake it up and make sure you create shorter triggers around your face, allowing for the overall style to blend through to the base line length.”

ANTHONY NADER REVEALS HIS TOP TIPS TO GET YOUR HAIR BACK TO LOOKING ITS BEST

Hey hair mid-life crisis………..we’re talkin to you! As seen on Dailymail.co.uk

As we age, our locks undergo many changes. For women, this is often related to stress and hormones; and while grey strands and hair loss might be the major concerns for women, loss of volume, dullness and dryness can be all signs of your hair’s unhealthy state.

Celebrity hairstylist Anthony Nader says his female clients often complain about grey and lacklustre hair that is dry and without volume.

‘They all come down to basically each hair strand becoming dehydrated and losing it’s plumpness which, in turn, becomes like an autumn leaf,’ he says.

 

Celebrity hairstylist and owner of RAW Salon in Sydney, Anthony Nader, says many women experience hair loss, dullness and dryness in their 30s and 40s.

‘You need to keep each hair strand plump and full of life so it performs.’

Mr Nader, who has worked alongside Kendall Jenner and Gisele Bündchen, says stress and hormones can affect a woman’s hair throughout her life.

‘Breastfeeding, menopause and stress can be huge contributors to losing your hair and dealing with calming down your over active hormones,’ he explains.

‘Hormones will wreak havoc and you need to be always one or even two long steps ahead of them.

‘While your body is going through any of these transitions that occur at some point in your life, this is where you need to take extra care in treating the cause of the problem,’ he adds.

 

Keeping your hair one colour will make it look flat and dull. Grey strands can be given new life with 'dimensional colour', says Mr Nader

‘Going grey can be dealt with by colouring to suit your complexion, the pregnancy thankfully is a time when you need to balance out the supplements and add more nutrients in your day to day diet.’

However, Mr Nader says menopause is particularly ”trying” for women.

‘I’ve seen this stage on many of my clients, and with the right shampoo and conditioning products and styling you can create the illusion of thicker hair and fool the crowd confidently,’ he says.

‘You need to take extra care of maintaining and treating your hair to always feel supple and beautiful.’

Mr Nader recommends getting six-weekly haircuts, avoiding too much bleach and adding layers.

TIPS FOR HAIR LOSS

* Sweep your hair over to the opposite side. It will give you more volume

* Use a dry shampoo to achieve more hair texture

* If you want extra height on the crown area, use a brush, not a comb

* Opt for a thickening shampoo and conditioner

‘Layers are always a fabulous idea when you want and need to bring life back into your hair and especially around your face,’ he explains.

‘Go easy on the bleach and other heavy duty colour treatments as this can over time put stress on your poor hair strands.’

ANTHONY NADER’S TIPS FOR AN EFFORTLESS HOLIDAY-HAIR TOUSLE

I love holidays. Although that probably goes without saying. Aside from cocktails, sun, and sea salt, I love that a holiday allows me to pare back my beauty routine completely—distilling my makeup bag down to its absolute essence is a near religious experience. The same goes for my hair. I see a cheeky week-long trip as a chance to streamline my look, spending as little time styling as possible. With some planning in advance, it is absolutely possible to enjoy effortless, tousled holiday hair for a full week without washing it. And, if you plan it just right, the only tool you’ll need to bring is a comb.

They key is in the prep. Anthony Nader from Sydney’s RAW Salon crafted these three travel-friendly looks, designed to progress with you through seven days of bliss and remain chic enough to live on forever in holiday snaps.

 

DAYS 1 – 3: BEACHY WAVES

The day of your trip will require the most effort. Before you leave, use a nourishing shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair as healthy and shiny as possible for the whole week—we like the nutrient-rich OGX Vitamin B5 ($18). Then use your preferred method of creating waves; whether with a curling tong, straightening iron, or (in the case of Nader’s advice below) both.

Anthony Nader’s Tip: “When applying a wave to hair I like to use two different types of hot appliances. Alternate them and leave some ends out so the result is lived-in and not too glam looking. For this look, I swirled chunky sections around a flat iron and also used a 1¼ sized barrel tong, winding the other sections in the opposite direction. I know this sounds like a lot of work and investment, but creating different effects is key to making it look like it was done by a pro.”

DAYS 4 – 5: TEXTURED PONY

After a fun-filled three days, your hair will start to look a little greasy at the roots, mostly at your part. You can hide this by brushing back into a low pony, which will look perfectly textured and tousled thanks to the waves you crafted on Day 1. Brushing your hair out of its normal part will hide the worst of your oily roots, too.

Anthony Nader’s Tip: “Keep the base of the ponytail low, not halfway up the back of your head like you were unsure of where it is meant to be. Then brush it, place it and secure it. Soak up oily roots and stuck-to-the-head surface hair with a dry shampoo to liven up your new low pony. Spray it on the root area, then massage the scalp to emphasize the texture.”

DAYS 6 – 7: MACARON BUNS

We profiled this sweet ‘do a few months ago; the tail-end of a holiday is the perfect time to try them. Work with the slickness of your hair to pull it all back firmly into two low ponytails—if you’re dealing with some humidity-related frizz, work in a small amount of hydrating oil, such as the OGX Coconut Miracle Penetrating Oil ($9). Wrap the hair of each ponytail loosely around its base, but let a few strands fly loose in keeping with your new relaxed vibe.

Anthony Nader’s Tip: “There’s a very fine line between these buns coming off cool or spacey. Be careful not to place them too far around on the sides of your head, otherwise it’s going to look a little strange. Keep them near the back of the neck and no need to be precise with making sure they’re too clean and slick. The more they look like natural hair, the better.”

THE SPRING AND SUMMER HAIR TRENDS YOU’RE GOING TO WANT TO KNOW ABOUT

summer-hair-trends-portrait

We know lightening your hair for summer is just about as non-groundbreaking as florals for spring, so to keep you in the know and your hair looking fresh for the season ahead we spoke to the experts to get the official word on what you should be asking for as the weather warms up. From the haircuts to the hair colours, plus the celebrities that are doing them best – here is all your summer hair inspiration.

Low maintenance

While low maintenance hair is trending all year round, it’s particularly great for summer. “Wearable, effortless hair is the clear trend,” says Elyston Hayden. “My clients are loving blunt base lines with minimal textured layers,” he says. Simon Bright from Jonny + June adds that the best celebrities to look to for inspiration are Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Selena Gomez. Layered or blunt, the low maintenance lob isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Go light

For those who are keen to play it a little safer this summer when it comes to colour, Anthony Nader from RAW Salon assures that balayage will always be a good go-to for a lighter colour that is a bit subtler. Hayden adds that “lived-in sun-kissed hair painted accents” are also a new season go-to. However, “less is more,” explains Nader, “as you don’t want to end up looking like Cadbury’s Top Deck chocolate”.

 

Go bold

If you’re feeling adventurous, Bright reveals that crystalline platinum is about to be huge. Tarryn Cherniayeff from MOB HAIR adds that pastel shades such a baby pinks and champagne are also the perfect way to mix up your hair colour for summer. Bold is certainly better.

 

Now that you’ve got your haircut and colour covered, here is exactly how to combat your biggest summer hair dilemmas.
