High or pronounced cheekbones are often seen as a desirable and beautiful quality. High cheekbones are common in both male and female fashion models and also make-up artists often use contouring and shading to create the illusion of high cheekbones.
High cheekbones are most commonly found in diamond and oval face shapes. For ladies who are lucky enough to have them, you may want to emphasize this beauty feature with the right hair cut. On the other hand, some woman may wish to make their high cheekbones look softer. The right haircut can perfectly flatter or soften high cheekbones, here’s how!
If you’re looking for a short haircut that will flatter your high cheekbones, you can’t go wrong with a close-cropped cut. This is especially true if you style your crop with forward-swept sides, shorter bangs and a feathered cut.
Chin-Length Face Framing Bob
If a short crop doesn’t fit you then a chin-length bob might be the shorter but softer look that you’re seeking. A textured chin-length bob with angular bangs or a side-part will soften the facial feature with the clean lines and angles. The chin-length will also add width towards the chin where it can often be narrow compared to the wider high cheekbones.
Long Wispy Curtain or Blunt Bangs
Bangs are the perfect way to draw the eyes to your beautiful high cheekbones. By keeping them long and wispy you are also softening the hard angles of the cheekbones. They will frame your face to create a flawless look.
Long Layers Around the Face
If you want long luscious hair to pair with your high cheekbones then the key is long layers. The layers bring the eyes attention to various points around your face. They can be used to soften or sharpen the features that you desire. If you want to emphasize your cheeks then a layer that hits right there will help with that. You should also have a layer around the chin to create the symmetry of width with the cheeks.
Sharp Graduated Bob
This is another hairstyle that has a lot of versatility for your own personal style but the general cut is perfect for high cheekbones. The sharp angles will perfectly compliment the angles of the face shape and really dramatize the gorgeous cheekbones. This could be a chin-length asymmetrical bob like Victoria Beckham or a longer asymmetrical bob like Leigh Lezark. Style with side-swept bangs or a side part.
