There is nary an internet-reading woman who hasn't tried her hand at contouring—and dealt with the streak-y, not-blended-enough, too-obvious fallout. For a way easier (and lower-maintenance) take on sculpting the face, try these haircuts and styles, which are known for emphasizing features like cheekbones, jawlines, and eyes—sans makeup.
A voluminous bun adds structure to the face, while the loose curls draw attention to the eyes.
A chin-length angular bob lifts the face and sharpens the jaw line.
Longer hair lengthens the face, and wisps contour your cheekbones.
A bob inherently puts all the focus on cheekbones, while an asymmetrical curtain of hair draws even more attention upwards to the eyes and cheeks.
Curly, side-swept bangs that hit above the brow emphasize the eyes, while the long wisps frame the face.
Cool-girl bends are universally flattering. They keep the hair from lying too flat on the face, while their curvatures trim the silhouette of the face.
Bey's halo of soft, ringlety curls hits the apples of the cheeks in flattering fashion, while the long layers sculpt the jaw area.
A cloud of shoulder-length curls with volume at the crown elongates the face and makes it look trimmer.
Short, wispy bangs frame the eye area, while feather-light waves that hit the collarbone flatter the décolletage.
A voluminous, bouncy mane makes the face seem smaller and more angled.
Lifted, sideswept pin curls add interest and emphasis to the facial structure, playing up the contours of her cheekbones and brow area.
The spiky pieces of this top-heavy pixie make the face look long and lean, while the cheekbones are more pronounced.
Soft, touchable layers offset a pronounced jaw, while the swept-out side pieces exaggerate the cheekbones.
The wispy ends of this piece-y, layered, and '70s-inspired chop point in all the right directions, with the bangs accentuating the apples of the cheeks and the ends bending towards her jawline.
With a center part and medium-barrel-sized waves, an angular face takes on a softened, youthful look.
