Heart shaped face.

Chin length hair through to longer styles look great. As do side parted hair styles. Face framing layered wigs and bobs also really suit a heart shaped face, as they create balance. The heart shaped is very versatile in terms of finding a suitable wig style. Just remember if you have a dramatic heart shape face, you have great cheekbones to emphasize – so face framing is perfect!

you should avoid short, full styles that emphasize the upper face. Height at the crown. Severe, slicked back looks. If you are a dramatic heart shape, the short full styles with tapered necklines which emphasize the upper face will make you look top heavy. Too much height at the crown will give the appearance of a longer and narrower chin.

Celebrities which have a heart shaped face include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Naomi Campbell and Reese Witherspoon so why not look to them for inspiration on a style!

Long shaped face.

For a long face shape you can use your wig to make your face look shorter. So with this in mind, a chic bob, or a bob with waves or soft curls on the top and sides will look great and will perfectly complement your face shape. These styles tend to round out your face. Remember you can use your wig to really emphasise key features i.e. if it's your cheekbones, try layering chin-length hair so that it falls right at your cheeks and chin. This will create the illusion of width, which waves and curls will only emphasize. If you want to draw attention to your lips and chin, try a choppy bob or a shoulder-skimming straight wig.

Try to avoid Super-short layers on the top of your head as this will make your face appear too long. If your hair is really thick and curly, try to stay away from a blunt bob or you may end up looking like a pyramid!

Celebrities which have a long/oblong shaped face include Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, and Jada Pinkett Smith, so why not look to them for inspiration on a style!

Round shaped face.

Wig styles with more fullness and a height at the crown are very flattering for if you have a round shaped face. Face frame wigs and hair with an off centre parting also look great. You can also go long with lots of curls. We would advise you to go for a medium to long length wig to best complement your natural facial features.

Try to stay away from blunt cuts if you go for short hair. Also avoid chin length hair with a rounded line that mirrors your face’s round shape. Centre partings, short-short bobs and fullness at the side of your ears should also be avoided. A rounded haircut ending at the chin will certainly add weight to your already round face shape Celebrities which have a round shaped face include Gwyneth Paltrow, Oprah Winfrey, Kate Bosworth, Cameron Diaz, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, so why not look to them for inspiration on a style!

Oval shaped face.

Almost any wig style will suit you if you have an oval face shape! Your face shape is highly versatile so you will be able to easily wear a long, medium or short length hairstyle! Why not try a beautiful face frame wig, a bob, of a long wavy style. You really have a lot of choice so why not try a few different looks out?!

Square shaped face.

Try going for a style that incorporates layers, and flicks, so a face frame wig is probably ideal. Short to medium hair will look great and wavy/curly styles also complement your face shape well. If you chose a style with wispy edges this will help soften your face and is especially good if you have a sharp jaw line.

It is best to avoid short straight cut bobs and anything that is cut very symmetrically (for example long straight styles).

Celebrities which have a square shaped face include Demi Moore, Mandy Moore, Sandra Bullock, and Rosario Dawson, so why not look to them for inspiration on a style
