Angelina Jolie Hairstyle - Hairstyles for a Square Face

It is not the ears, eyes, or the lips that will help a woman determine the best haircut for her. This means that if a woman has prominent pouting lips, it does not automatically allow her to copy the Angelina Jolie hairstyle.

Lips can be factored in later to resolve little details of the hairstyle. But the shape of the lips is not the deal breaker, not even for the Angelina Jolie hairstyle.

Angelina Jolie's unique face shape.

Most hair stylists would insist that there are only few basic face shapes, and these are the heart, the diamond, the oblong, the round, the oval, and the square. Unfortunately, in the real world, an individual person's face shape could not be easily categorized.

Most faces are combinations of two or more of these basic shapes. And the shape of Angelina Jolie's face is a great example. Luckily, the Angelina Jolie hairstyle in 2010, as seen in the movies 'Salt' and 'The Tourist' was able to bring out the best of her unique face shape.

What is Angelina Jolie's face shape?

Due to her 'strong woman' roles that began in 2001 in the Tomb Raider movies, it is easy to magnify her strong jaw line and assume that she has a square face. But Angelina Jolie also has the classic features of a high forehead and high cheekbones that make other people believe that she has an oval face shape. This is not exactly correct. The length of the oval face should be 1 ' times longer than the width measured at the cheekbones. Angelina Jolie's face does not quite meet this criterion. Her face is wider than the normal oval face.

Oval faces can get away with many hairstyles, including angular bobs and blunt bangs. Angelina Jolie could not get away with bangs. This is why no Angelina Jolie hairstyle will include bangs that cover the entire forehead. It would make her face look wider, and the effect would be utterly appalling. There should be no Egyptian princess hairstyles for Angelina Jolie.

With the ratio of the length and width of her face, Angelina Jolie's face shape is a combination of oval and square. Combined face shapes are tricky to style, but Angelina Jolie's hairstyle manages her face with flying colors. Since the upper part of her face is dominantly oval, all Angelina Jolie's hairstyles ensure that nothing covers the forehead, except for the occasional side-swept bangs.

And since the lower part of her face is dominantly square, all Angelina Jolie hairstyles have soft waves. The strictly square face, such as that of Demi Moore, can get away with boyish short cuts. Angelina Jolie's hairstyles should not follow suit. For example, Angelina Jolie tried short hair in 1995 in the movie Hackers. It was not flattering.

The hairstyle, of course, is utterly feminine with its wild abundant curls. The curls, with their free movement, throws soft shadows on her square jaw line. With this in mind, all of Angelina Jolie hairstyles have bodies that tend to curl. But is it always necessary to have curls that can soften the jaw line? One Angelina Jolie hairstyle that does not have curls covering the jaw line was in Tomb Raider. But remember that she has two thick strands of hair falling in front of her left face that diverted attention from her square jaw.

Angelina Jolie's hairstyle compliments face shapes that are combinations of oval and square. The open hairstyles and absence of bangs accentuate the eyes and flaunt the best features of the forehead and cheeks. The curls and the longer hair lengths soften the square jaw line. And since the face belongs to Angelina Jolie, with the famous pouting lips and mysterious cat-like eyes, the effect the hairstyle is that of a confident and sensual woman.
