The name of the apple cut comes from the overall shape it gives your head: that of an apple. It can be styled with blunt or side-swept bangs but you’ll need to keep the volume of your hair in check at all times for this less permissive look.
Face Shape for Apple Cut Hairstyle
When it’s super short, the apple cut is best suited for oval faces. If you have a round, heart-shaped or square face, the apple cut hairstyle can accentuate strong lines or features for a less flattering effect.
The oval face is the only option if you’re thinking of getting the well defined apple cut Olivia Wilde sported in Tron: Legacy, especially if the tips of the hair go higher than your jawline.
For other face shapes, you can try a slightly longer version of this hairstyle, but make sure you care for your hair daily to ensure the volume doesn’t go astray and you lose the overall shape of the apple haircut.
