Transcript:Tips for Growing Out Shoulder-Length Hair by Face Shape

Hi, I am Laura Kiorkis, owner of Gemini of Chicago Hair Salon in Peoria, Arizona. Today, I'm going to show you the top tips for growing out shoulder length hair.

Tips for Growing Out Shoulder-Length Hair

When growing out shoulder-length hair, it is important that you either see a stylist or get a haircut every 6-8 weeks followed with treatments, to ensure that the hair does not get any split ends and start to break off.

When deciding on whether or not you should have a shoulder-length hair style, it is important that you consider your lifestyle, maintenance and your face shape. If you stick to the guidelines as far as face shape goes and what works best for your particular face shape, you have no worries at all.

Guidelines for Growing Out Shoulder-Length Hair by Face Shape

Round face shapes should grow out their shoulder-length hair with shorter layers throughout the crown, while maintaining their length. Long faces should grow out their shoulder-length hair maintaining volume at their sides to create illusion of a wider face.

Because oval face shapes have more symmetry than most other face shapes, they can wear almost any hairstyle while growing out their shoulder-length hair. While growing out shoulder-length hair on a square face shape, you will want to make sure to keep your hair cut soft and flattering around the jaw bone.

When growing out shoulder-length hair on a heart face shape, you'll want to maintain volume at the chin area and always keep that more boxy or weighted while growing it out.

Those are your top tips for how to grow out shoulder length hair.
