Not all of us were lucky enough to be born with the facial structure of a super model which is why we often wonder about ways to make our face look thinner. The illusion of a thinner face makes one look younger and fit but it doesn’t necessarily mean that if you don’t have a thin face you’re not fit. For people like me, who were not blessed with a thin face here are tips that will help you make your face look thinner than it is.
1) Layered haircut
Get the right haircut for your facial shape and features. The way that your hair frames your face can change the appearance of its contours. Go for a long, layered cut which extends past your cheekbones.
Tip: Avoid blunt bangs and chin-length bobs; the horizontal hair ends can make your face seem wider.
2) Side parting
Part your hair down the sides; this will let your cheekbones stand out, emphasising the natural planes of your face. This hair styling technique works for all face shapes, but it is especially effective for the heart-shaped face which can look rounder with a centre parting.
Go for subtle highlighting. Highlights that are expertly done draw the eye along the length of the hair, calling attention to the vertical line.
4) Add volume
Style some volume into your hair. A stick-straight hairstyle leaves little room for disguising the true width of your face, whereas romantic curls and wispy angle-cut bangs soften up the outline of the face. More volume in your hair makes your face look smaller and more delicate.
5) Top knot
Top knots add length to the face and brings attention upward. It makes your face appear longer and creates a slimming effect for your face. The extra height also acts as an add-on to your personality. (BONUS)
6) Back combing
Back combing, also known as teasing, is a great way to add volume to the crown area of your head as it adds an extra inch. A slight teasing adds height on top of your hair and elongates your face.
