Consult hair stylist for perfect cut

I have small round face, curly hair (past shoulders) and receding chin line. Suggest hair cut that will deemphasize chin or jaw which is receding due to age and need for braces to read just jaw line.

In order to get a cut that suits your face best of all, you need to consult a professional hair stylist. This kind of a professional will be able to judge better what all is required after looking at your face carefully from all angles. It is not only your face that needs to be looked at, really. The stylist would also have to look at your hair, its texture, growth levels, and check with you and your ability to maintain a new cut. Some hair cuts require trimming as soon as a couple of months later. You should have the means to be able to maintain your hair if that is the case. Merely getting a good hair cut is simply not enough. It would be better if you were able to visit a salon which also has the computer software which can actually crop your face and place various styles on it, thus showing you how you would look with various cuts and lengths. More than a stylist, who can give you a professional decision, you need to see for yourself how you will look after a hair cut. There are also some basic factors such as whether or not you need to tie your hair and if you can leave it loose and so on.

It is not necessary that you would have to focus on a new hair cut alone. In your case, it sounds like you may also have to go for a few other things such as styling your hair. If you want to cover your jaw line, then your best bet is to have straight hair. If possible, you should get your hair straightened and then cut it to a mid length, falling somewhere about the middle of your back. This way, you also have the freedom to tie it whenever you wish to. You should also get a short set of bangs to fall across your forehead. This will also take away from your age to some extent and will draw more attention to the upper part of your face in general. If possible, try to go for a hair coloring experiment. You can try out a few temporary colors to start off with. This will be able to tell you if your face and hair are suited to this change. While these are valid suggestions, remember that it may not always be possible for you to take them on.
