FACE the facts!

June 14, 2011

Over the last few months, we have had ‘hair raising’ conversations regarding all of the looks that we could achieve with the use of SONOMA hair collection. Whether your style is conservative or funky, the sentiment remains not all styles are for everyone. Whilst it may be tempting to have celebrity 20” wavy hair, or a Corrine Bailey Rae bantu knot out the fact remains that we are not all risk takers and there is no way that we would be leaving the house looking like a circus clown. (Can I get an amen?!)

Well, there are a few things that I want to share that will help you to make more calculated hair decisions. Firstly take a look at your face shape. Don’t criticize your shape, embrace it. It is a road map to the styles that will work best for you. Here are the basic shapes and general rules:


The oval face – People with an oval face shape can wear most hairstyles and lengths. Try out lots of different hair styles and focus on the ones that make you feel amazing!

 The Round face – Hair should be cut to create the illusion of length in the face. Try to minimize roundness by creating less volume around the face.

The Long face – The best hair cut is one which creates volume at the sides disguising the narrowness. 

The Heart face – The hair style’s objective should be to create an oval by adding width at the jawline. You can also try bringing out your eyes by wearing side-swept bangs.

The Square face – The best hair style seeks to elongate the face. Hair should be layered around the face to soften the jawline. Try textured styles and lots of curls.


I would like to share a secret , that I’ve been using for some years that is an AMAZING tool. I’m talking about Essence Magazine’s Makeover magic!!


Like most of todays technology, this actually seems like magic! It provides you the option uploading a picture of yourself and gives you the option to virtually try out several trendy hairstyles. Tip: Upload a picture with your hair pulled back. This will allow the hairstyles that you choose to look the most realistic.

So girls, grab a glass of wine on a lazy Saturday and enjoy playing around with different looks! If you discover a look that you wish to try that requires length or thickness make sure that you contact us at so that we can assist you!


Talk to you soon!
