For especially curly hair types, you can transform some of the bulk into a more svelte finish with the use of triangular layers. The technique cuts straight across pieces held up from the crown, and then cutting strands held out straight at the sides and back in a downward angle, causing hair to lay flatter. Paired with a deep or symmetrical part, and you’ve got even more contrast to your round shape.
If you have highly textured hair
Highly textured types often complain that strands can rest against the widest part of the round heart shape—the cheeks—and pouf out into a shapeless triangle that lacks spark and movement. The solution is to actually cut triangular layers around the crown so that hair hangs sleeker. Triangle layers are cut straight across strands that are held up straight from the crown, and by cutting pieces held out straight from the sides in a downward angle. An extra bonus is that this technique allows the top layers to keep the crown from falling flat.
If you enjoy experimenting with extensions, this is the perfect shape to pull off long, sweeping layers that are highlighted by a deep side part and cascading layers that all work to accentuate your bone structure.
