Victoria Beckham HairstylesVictoria Beckham first catapulted into fame was when she was a characteristic "Posh Spice" of the Spice Girls. As the group disbanded, Victoria pursued various career paths, including a solo career in singing, fashion, business, and even writing. Victoria Beckham is clearly a multitalented woman that continues to impress the public year after year. But her talent is not the only reason for her fame. The critics and the media are always amazed at Victoria Beckham'shairstyles. It seems that she never gets a bad hair day. It must be her highly developed fashion sense, or her naturally beautiful hair. But any expert in the world of hairstyling will doubt these explanations. The fundamental principle of good hairstyling lies in the face shape. Surprisingly, the Victoria Beckham hairstyles seem to defy the admonitions and precautions for her particular face shape.

Victoria Bechkam's hairstyles based upon her face shape

Victoria Beckham has a heart-shaped face. There is the characteristic widow's peak at the center, which is not very obvious on Victoria Beckham's face. The forehead is wider than the normal proportions. Normally, the cheeks should be significantly wider than the forehead. But for women like Victoria Beckham, the forehead is almost as wide as the cheeks. At the same time, the chin is narrow and pointy. The pointy chin, with the right hairstyles, will look utterly feminine. With the wrong hairstyles, the same chin will appear like the sword of Damocles. The different Victoria Beckham hairstyles, throughout the years, seem to easily address the visual problems of the wide forehead and the narrow chin. But she does not do it by following the classic advices.

Victoria Bechkam's hairstyles ignore classic advice

Victoria Beckham HairstylesFor example, classic advice for heart-shaped faces is to avoid parting the hair at the center. The central part will only emphasize the extra width at the forehead. But there are several Victoria Beckham hairstyles in which the hair is parted at the center. Her forehead does not look too wide at all. What was the technique behind these Victoria Beckham hairstyles? The technique lies in the shape of the hair. Although the hair is parted at the center, the hair strands are allowed to fall down the sides of her face to form an inverted V-shape. The falling hair strands form a curtain that covers a significant part of her forehead. Of course, these Victoria Beckham hairstyles will work only when the hair is totally straight.

Another classic piece of advice for heart-shaped faces that is ignored by Victoria Beckham hairstyles is the caution against short haircuts. Jennifer Lopez, who also has a heart-shaped face similar to Victoria Beckham, would not dare wear short haircuts. Short hair will simply make the upper part of the face to appear wider. But many Victorian Beckham hairstyles are actually short. Her hair is cropped short at the back, but she manages to appear stunning. What technique did the hairstylists use for these Victoria Beckham hairstyles?

On the surface, these Victoria Beckham hairstyles are just bobs with additional front textured layers and a slightly different cut. Hairstylists have a dry name for it: the asymmetrical bob. But Victoria Beckham wears it with such style that it is now known as the Pob, a combination of her Spice Girls nickname "Posh" and "bob." The slight bangs are cut in varying lengths so that they blend seamlessly to the length of the sides of her hair. This significantly reduces the width of the forehead and adds more femininity to her chin. On the other side of her face, this Victoria Beckham hairstyle allows her to tuck the hair behind her ears. The lines of the tucked hair join the jaw line, which adds width to her otherwise narrow chin.

By studying the techniques of the Victoria Beckham hairstyles, one will find that a woman need not stick to the dull hairstyles that are supposedly the only ones allowed for certain face shapes. A little styling and a fresh perspective will result in trendier and more sophisticated looks.
