As graduation day approaches, you’re probably looking for that perfect hairstyle to mark this significant milestone. For black women, the right hairstyle can make a statement, reflect your personality, and add a touch of elegance to your graduation look. We sat down with the esteemed hairstylist, Linda Miller, to gather expert advice on chic hairstyles for black women’s graduations.

Choosing the Right Hairstyle for Your Face Shape

Miller suggests starting by considering your face shape. If you have a round face, opt for a hairstyle that adds height to elongate your face. A sleek high ponytail, a top knot, or a pixie cut with volume on the top are great choices. For those with an oval face, you’re in luck, as most hairstyles suit this shape. You can experiment with different partings, layers, or even a side-swept fringe.

The Ideal Hairstyle for Your Hair Texture

“Women with a heart-shaped face should aim to create width at the jawline,” advises Miller. Consider a hairstyle with a deep side part, or side-swept bangs to balance your features. Lastly, for those with a square face shape, try a side part with loose waves to soften the jawline. Alternatively, a layered shag or a pixie cut with wispy bangs can achieve a similar effect.
