My Hair Cut and Face Shape (And my hair story)

Pretty morning to everyone! This post will be concentrating not on make-up at this point, I'm gonna try if I have the guts to post an informative one. I am not professional when it comes to giving advice on what hair style should one go for. But I do love reading beauty blogs or hair articles. I read almost everthing about how to take good care of hair, how to have the right hair style for your face shape. Though sometimes, it is really hard to choose what particular cut of your hair will you go for, cause sometimes, we  used to envy those celebrity cuts or hairstyles, thinking that certain hairstyle would look good also to us. But after considering our face shape, we realized then that it doesn't actually suit our face shape, and we might ended up on blaming ourself. 

Way back my childhood days, I have a very long, sleek hair, wherein 3/4 of my hair was straight then the lower part was a bit curly. My Uncle used to disagreed whenever my parents want me to cut my hair. Maybe "nanghihinayang sya sa buhok ko". But as we all know, or maybe you've experienced the same thing like mine, When I was in grade 6, I noticed changes on my hair. It turned out wherein my hair strands used to get curly not only on the lower part but also from it's roots.  And they started to thickened and get's dry. I haven't done any hair coloring or straightening because I'm too young for that. Then when I reached high-school, things get worse. So I used to ponytail my hair every day because I cannot let it untied, "nagmumuka kasi akong santo" , I mean di ba kulot yung mga santo? And I started hating my hair. When I was in second year high school, this so called hair straightening / relaxing buzzed the life of teenager girls. And i tried it (in an expensive salon somewhere here in Rizal). And it went okay. But of course, your hair will grow out and those new grown up hair will look way too different from the hair that has been straightened. So i used to tied it again. And during my college days, the famous "Rebonding" buzz again the ladies life. Marami talagang nauuso. And i tried it too, and it was my mom's gift to me for my graduation. And the result was pretty fine! But yeah, maintenance of hair is equal to "expensiveness". 

Moreover, I've tried a lot of hairstyles. But I always go for a long hair even if I don't have the perfect locks. It is so girly kasi for me kapag mahaba ang hair ng isang girl. Before I used not to care if what will the hairstylist do with my hair. Wala pa kong alam sa face-shape, hairstyle rules noon. Pero lately, siguro dahil na din sa influenced ng nababasa kong blogs and articles, I started getting conscious on what particular cut will suits my face shape. 

I have round shape. I have small chinky eyes, a bit wide nose, pouty lips (naks!), wide and rounded cheeks, and you can barely see my cheekbones. I cannot wear bangs because it doesn't look good to me dahil nga sa face shape ko. So after searching online, this is I think the perfect haircut for me.

I saw this top-layered haircut from one of the make-up gurus, Bubzbeauty :) Here's my inspirational hair.

This is bubz, we both have the same rounded face,
and after reading her tips, i did went for this hairstyle. 
I know, hers is far way better than mine. The hairstylist didn't
get the exact look.

So after few months, I know I need to achieve bubz haircut. 
I went again to the salon that I used to have my first inspired top-layered cut, and at this point, It is much better than the first one.
Note that the highlights of mine was courtesy of my mom's beautiful creation DIY hi-lights! hehe
I know you will definitely agree that this is better than the first one, thou I didn't get the exact style from Bubz, but I am pretty happy that somehow this haircut looks okay to my rounded face.
This style is a little bit of edgy and finally I  have bangs na! 

Since I wanted to have shorter hair for a long time, I finally convinced myself na to cut my hair. 
The moment na hindi pa nare-bond ang hair ko way back 2010.
Then after a year, I went again for shorter hair, but at this point, it is rebonded.
haha it is so flat! So I decided to make it shorter pa!

I'm not really sure if this cut suits me, some say that shorter hair looks good to me
but some say that long hair is much better daw. I dunno!

Bob-cut with one sided bangs

after few months it looks likethis i just reversed the parting of my hair.

So there it is. It was such a long post. Whew. Wala naman kayong nakuhang tips. hehe Well anyways, if you have rounded face like mine, you can try the hairstyle that i went for if you think it suits you too. Or much better if you bring a picture with your desired hairstyle before you go to the salon, so you and your stylist will have a good conversation before he/she did the cutting portion. I forgot to mention, I also went for curly hair before. I'll make a separated post again and will included pictures soon. And gonna try to ask for your opinion if which is better, curly or straight hair.

Thanks for reading this post sweeties! Sorry, i was about to include some links about choosing the right hairstyle for different face shape but, inabot ako ng katamaran.  But soon, I will!

Have a happy weekend!
