Which face shape does Cara Delevingne have?
What do I think of the look?
I would say that it’s hard to improve on a template that’s Cara Delevingne. Don’t get me wrong Cara doesn’t have the best face shape or features; what she does have is a great face to make up. It’s always the women that are fairly plain that seems to make up well.
The interesting thing is without make-up and with the wrong haircut Cara would not look good, for this reason I would not recommend a short cut for her face as long is definitely more feminine, otherwise Cara would look too hard in the face.
The style that she’s wearing on the photo above taken in May 2014 at the Charles James Beyond Fashion Costume Institute, is okay but I think the curls should be slightly lower down; this would then make a better balance to her heart shape face.
To understand what I mean (this is going to sound a bit strange but humour me) if you take two fingers and hold them horizontally over the top part of her curls, (on the photo of course) your see that the balance is better with the curls lower down.
From this you will understand that the slightest difference in a shape can have a massive impact on a look. When I study hair I look with a scientific eye as this helps find the perfect style in balance with her bone structure and the all important features.
I’m not too impressed with the quality of the style as the back and sides are not executed as well as the front. I would have brushed that side back a bit tighter and slightly further over to the other side, as I feel that it would give it a more defined look.

Sorry to be picky, but Cara is a high profiled supermodel and think it’s important to get the style as near perfect as possible.
Sometimes in life the most simple of things can be the best, if you take a look at the photo below taken in February 2014 at London Fashion Week Burberry show, this is her signature look and by far the best style she has worn.
The strange thing is if anyone else would wear this style, it wouldn’t look as good; this is because her ends are very thin and wispy BUT for some reason it suits her. Looking closely at the science behind this hairstyle suiting her, it makes her face appear a better shape as it slims the top part of her heart shape face making it look a bit more oval.
This goes to prove that hairdressing is not an easy industry, what you don’t learn enough in training is suitability; this is something that comes with experience.
You could put this style on someone with the same shape face as Cara but because of the facial features it may suit just a few.
How to style your hair like Cara Delevingne 2014
It works best with straight or wavy hair…
Hair appliances needed and products:
- Flat bristle brush
- Medium and large sized heated rollers
- Hair clip/clips (fashion accessories)
- Strong hold hairspray
- After your hair is washed rough dry just using your hands, no brush needed.
- Comb in a side-parting and then place the first large heated roller vertically across the line of the parting and roll towards one ear. The side of the parting that you place the roller is the higher part of the parting where you have more hair.
- Work back until you reach your crown, then place the next row of large rollers. You use large rollers on the first 3 sections because you only want to create some lift and a very slight wave. The next row use the medium sized rollers until you run out of hair. Spray over all the rollers with a strong-hold hairspray.
4. After about 30 minutes making sure that the rollers have completely cooled down, start to take them out.
5. Using a Flat bristle brush, like a Mason and Pearson brush, start to brush the side down that you placed in the rollers, you will need to brush the top part a little more than the underneath, this is because if you brush too much you will lose a lot of the waves and may become too straight. Slightly back-comb the section at the front to give it a little more lift.
6. Start to brush the other side back then hold in place with a hair clip or grip.
7. Finish by working your fingers through the waves until you are happy with it, and then spray in place with hairspray.
What to ask for, or keep away from if you have a rectangular face shape: make sure that the length of the style is not too long; I would cut around 1-2 inches of the length and then canstyle your hair similar to Cara’s.
Heart – this is the same as Cara’s face shape so I would place in large rollers for the first few sections, then the waves will appear slightly lower down than Cara’s but will work slightly better than hers as mentioned above.
Oval – Perfect for this shape face
Square – It will work for a square shape face
Round – similar to a rectangular shape I would cut around 1-2 inches from the length. This is because if it’s too long your face may disappear a little with-in the hair and look even more round.
