As we all know, there are probably millions of hairstyling tutorial videos to be found across the social media platforms. In fact, it seems they are lurking around every corner, offering heaps of advice and oodles of ideas on how to both make your hair look healthy and shiny and how to style it in the most gorgeous of fashions.

Can you see the problem yet? The problem is that there are so many magnificent looks that those beauty influencers on Instagram are teaching you how to achieve, that it’s almost impossible to choose the one, or ones, that would look best on you. Because it’s not just about going to the stylist and showing them a picture, saying, “I want that!” – you need to take into consideration that not every hairstyle looks flattering on every person.

So how do you choose? Well, first and foremost, you need to determine your face shape: oval, round, square, heart, or diamond. Don’t immediately say ’round’: according to our hair expert, YouTuber Ellebangs, around 90% of women think they have round faces, and in most cases they are wrong.
