Having short hair can be intimidating for some because it can affect the balance of our overall look. Thing is, though, regardless if you have high cheekbones, round cheeks, or a wide face, you can pull off any hairstyle as long as you're confident enough in it! Pro-tip? Consider choosing the right haircut for your features. If you still need more convincing, here are seven celeb-approved haircuts to try based on your face shape:

1. Round: Blunt bob

Girls with round faces usually veer away from bob haircuts since these tend to emphasize the roundness of your mug. But, we have Angelica Panganiban who has been sporting this hairstyle for years now, and we can all agree that it adds an ~edge~ to her features!

2. Heart: Textured bob

If you have a heart-shaped face like Chie Filomeno, adding some texture to your bob can instantly give more oomph to your look and add a sultry vibe. Try styling it with some soft waves for even more bounce!

3. Oval: Layered bob with wispy short bangs

An oval-shaped face is deemed versatile due to its symmetry, hence it allows you to have more freedom in choosing hairstyles. For something new, though try a layered short cut with micro bangs like Issa Pressman. It looks gorgeous on her curly locks!

4. Diamond: Mid-length shag with side-swept bangs

Pairing this face shape with a side-swept fringe will give definition to your features because of all the face-framing layers. And as proven by Lauren Reid, having high cheekbones is definitely something you should embrace!

5. Square: Mullet with full bangs

Gabs Gibbs loves to be experimental with her look, and the mullet is one hairstyle that she can clearly pull off. The bangs add the perfect edgy touch to the chop, while the dreamy pink hair color brings softness to the overall style.

6. Triangle : Round lob with bangs

Rei Germar has a pointed chin and full cheeks that give her a youthful, doll-like vibe. If you have similar features, adding bangs to a round lob can help balance and emphasize those parts of your face!

7. Oblong: Blunt cut with micro bangs

We're still not over Kim Jones' platinum blonde blunt cut and short bangs. It's such a bold combo that can elevate any outfit, that's why if you have an oblong-shaped face like Kim, copping it yourself will definitely make you stand out.
