Today I want to talk a bit about shape an angles when it comes to hairstyles. In my YouTube video 3 Keys To Developing Creative Styles which you can watch here, I talk about how embracing shape and angles opens up more opportunity for styling options.
Here are the two main shapes I tend to embrace to come up with unique looks:
1. Circles: you might not realize it but circular styles are easy to come up with, outside of a typical halo/crown braid or bun. Here are a few different styles where I embraced a circular shape or rounded edges.
2. Triangles – triangular shapes allow me to achieve some really unique looks up front and they tend to be really bold. Take a look at these styles where I embraced a trianglular shape
The easiest way to achieve these circular or triangular looks is by using 1 or more sections of twisted hair and pulling and pinning them until they form the shape you’re looking for. You can also try to just form the hair into the shape and secure with bobby pins along the way, but this is a bit more difficult.
That’s it beauties! Try embracing one of these shapes with your next experimental updo and see where you end up.
