Pear-shaped face
Pear-shaped face
Asymmetrical hairstyle

Pear-shaped face is characterized by a small forehead and a larger chin on its background. A “Pear-shaped face” can consider a “Bob hairstyle” or an elongated version of it. It is important that the entire volume of hair is cut above the cheekbone line, but for people with thick hair, since the bulk of it is still collected in the zone of cheekbones and chin. The correct length is just below the cheekbones. Short haircuts can also be the right choice if they are voluminous, and the length still covers the ears. Such styling can also be combed back or rolled up in wave. Asymmetrical hairstyles are perfect for Pear faces as they minimize extra width and have a nice slimming effect on the face This hairstyle can work on any hair length from long to short as long as you have enough length to wrap it and pin it back to the side of the head.
