But, while any stylist can duplicate a haircut from a picture clipped out of a magazine, whether or not that cut will be flattering on you is largely dependent on the shape of your face.
So what is the perfect shape for your face? I found this InStyle article, 'Get Hollywood Hair: Find the Perfect Cut for Your Face Shape' to be a great starting point.
The reason I say it's a great starting point is because there are other factors that need to be considered before going under the shears. Your personality, for one. And your lifestyle, for another. A skilled hair stylist will know how to translate a flattering cut into a flattering cut that also fits with your personality and lifestyle.
How much time and effort are you willing to spend on your hair each day? How are your skills with a blow dryer or a flatiron? What kind of products are you comfortable with? If your stylist isn't asking these questions, you need to answer them on your own.
If you're looking for a new hairstyle, yes, the shape of your face is important. But no more or less important than being matched to your personality and lifestyle.
