Yelena Zavalishcheva, 19
What She Wants to Camouflage: Round, full face
The Right Cut: Strong bangs that cover Yelena's forehead, falling just beneath her brows in front and down below her temples on the sides, make her cheekbones appear more chiseled. "We actually want to emphasize the width of Yelena's face on top, and then use layers to frame her jawline and bring more of a heart shape to the face," says John. Graduated layers from her chin to her collarbone elongate her neck for an overall slimmer silhouette. Sleek styling (John used a straightening iron to keep Yelena's hair smooth) also counterbalances the curves of a round face.
What to Avoid: Short layers on the top and sides will create too much volume and amplify the fullness of the face.
