A great hairstyle will work wonders to change how you look and feel. As Kathie Lee Gifford says: "When your hair looks good, baby, you look good!"

Louis Licari and Rodney Cutler from the Licari Cutler Salon proved that point on TODAY Tuesday by giving three lucky ladies the makeover of a lifetime.

1. Elongated face

Cutler says to avoid a middle part, as it can elongate the face further.

Instead, he recommends side bangs, which will add movement and draw eyes outward. Licari likes to brighten the color on both sides of the face to really make cheekbones pop.

2. Round face

Long hair can actually emphasize rounder cheeks, says Cutler.

To draw attention up to the eyes, Cutler says to add lots of choppy layers that will better frame the face. When it comes to color, Licari recommends darker tones in the front to add dimension and sculpt the features.

3. Oval Face

This is the face shape that everyone wants because you can try virtually any cut — lucky you!

Cutler suggests a simple bob that feels sophisticated and modern, while Licari says a lighter color around the face will brighten the overall look.
