You have to keep in mind that beyond the trend cuts you always have to prioritize what suits you, for that if you ask an expert they will explain everything perfectly. The colors in the hair also influence. I will show you how.
Considered the perfect face, because it is a balanced face and maintains harmony in its proportions. For all this you can create any cut, color or hairstyle and it will always be excellent.

This is the face that almost all women think they have and they don’t. The round face is characterized by having rounded cheekbones and chin. If we talk about measurements, it is the same width as length. The cuts that favor are the lengths that reach the clavicle (clavicut) or below the shoulders (long bob or lob). If they have a trim or parade on the sides, much better, because they will help soften the features.
In the hairstyle, if they are straight, much better or just a little movement at the ends. Never volume on the sides because it will enlarge the face. Yes volume at the top of the head.
If you bet on a parting or partition, let it be on the side, I recommend the same with the bangs. When you get color or lights, remember the theory that dark colors thin or hide and light colors enlarge. For this reason, it is convenient to have a darker color on the sides, playing with light colors on the top and the rest of the head.

Here the lines of the face are very marked, for example, the forehead and jaw have straight contours, and they are angular and broad. It is a face with a lot of strength and personality, and if you want to accentuate this I recommend a square or bob cut and hairstyle.

For those who want to soften the features, the ideal is to cut it and style it with many layers on the sides as well as volume on the top, the shaggy cut or the wolf cut are perfect.
As for hair colors, apply the same as for a round face, dark on the sides and light on top and the rest.
This type of face is long, thin and its contours are gently rounded. When cutting, we must avoid long cuts, since they will make the face look even longer. Medium length hair such as lobs or the clavicut are excellent for shortening a long face. If you are going to do a parting, it has to be in the middle to round out the face. And the bangs forward and not very short. Hairstyles should have volume on the sides, but not on top.

When you do color here we must put light colors or lights on the sides to create a larger optical effect (to enlarge or round) and keep it darker on the top.
This face has the widest jaw with respect to the forehead. In this case, the cut and hairstyle needs a lot of volume at the temples and the parietal area to harmonize the features and nothing at all in the jaw.
You can make bangs to hide the small forehead. In color we can play with lighter colors in the parietals to enlarge and darker at the level of the mandible to decrease.

Here the face has a pointed chin and a very broad and important forehead. The ideal cut is a chin-length bob with a lot of volume at the ends to hide a narrow chin.
To hide the forehead you can use heavy bangs at the height of the eyebrows. The color has to be lighter at the tips, to provide volume.

This face, like the oval, maintains the proportions, the volumes and is very harmonious. Accept any type of cut, hairstyle and color, so it will depend a lot on the style and personality of each one.
The diamond-shaped face is favored with any type of cut
I hope that after these explanations you already know what your type of face is and what favors you.
