July 15, 2010— -- So you see a celebrity with that perfect hairdo and the voice in your head says, "I want that."

But before you run off to the salon, take a second to take another look at that head of yours -- is it the best 'do for you?

John Frieda stylist Harry Josh said that the summer's hot style really depends on the shape of your head and face. When he styled Gwyneth Paltrow, he went for a sleek, high pony. But Kate Bosworth and Amanda Seyfried called for a messy side braid, Josh said.

The best style for your hair depends on the shape of your face. Check out Josh's style secrets below.

Round Face: Longer hair is best for this shape. The panels in the front can cover up to a quarter of the face, which will make it appear longer.

Oval/Narrow Face: Avoid center parts. Layers around the face and side parts will create the illusion of a rounder face.

Square Face: Avoid geometric haircuts with strong lines. Angular cuts are awful with square faces because it makes your shape look harsher. Think wispy and softer.

Heart-shaped Face: Bangs are great for the heart-shaped face because they will create balance and soften the angular chin.
