It can be tricky to find the perfect haircut to suit your face shape and hair texture. These factors have to be considered because they both have an impact on how your tresses will look.

To help you decide, we listed down some universally flattering haircuts. It doesn't matter if you have a round face shape, a strong jawline, straight tresses, or curly locks, you can never go wrong with these classic hairstyles.

1. LOB

Whether it's layered or blunt, a lob always looks good. The then-recognized "awkward-length" is now a classic haircut choice. The lob grazes the cheekbones, which lengthens the neck and defines the jawline (aka it's slimming). Surprisingly, this hairstyle is low-maintenance. You can air-dry your locks and still have a great hair day.

Curly

Ask for subtle layers to create shape and curl definition. Spritz a bit of hair oil on damp locks to enhance the loops of your tresses. You can also spritz your curls with texturizing spray for a beachy vibe.

Straight

A lob with face-framing layers partnered with a blunt edge lends a cool-girl vibe. Bonus points if you use a straightener because this technique will accentuate your haircut.

2. FRONT LONG LAYERS

Long layers in the front slim down the face. This haircut softens a strong jawline and downplays plump cheeks.

Curly

Long layers provide structure to curly hair and prevent the dreaded triangle-shape buhaghag.

Straight

Subtle face-framing layers prevent your long hair from weighing your face down.

3. WISPY BANGS

Textured bangs add character to any haircut. This fringe can easily be transformed into curtain or side-swept bangs.

Curly

Spiral and twirly bangs are definitely cute! Ask your stylist to cut your fringe in a crescent shape for a flattering, face-framing effect.

Straight

Choppy, piecey bangs, especially when cut in various thicknesses, have an undone and It Girl appeal. To prevent the fringe from looking sloppy, spray dry shampoo on it and tousle with fingers.

4. A-LINE BOB

An A-line bob has the hair cut short at the back with long front ends. Its angled edge creates volume and makes a regular bob less boring.

Curly

You can opt to have the length cut above the jawline for a daring, unexpected result. Define your curls with an alcohol-free lightweight hair gel.

Straight

Look forever young with an A-line bob. But if you want to switch things up, straighten your locks with a hair iron for a fierce appeal or add subtle waves and texture to score a sexy and messy effect.
