Men's Hairstyle Recommendations Based On Face Shape

Deciding what hair style to go with or switch to can sometimes be overwhelming and confusing. Determining the best haircut and style for your face shape can help enhance your features and create a balanced, flattering look. 

Here are some tips and descriptions for different face shapes, along with examples that may help you experiment with your next look:

Round Face:

Characteristics: Equal in length and width, with soft, rounded features.

Best Haircuts: Styles that add height and lengthen the face, such as pompadours, faux hawks, and textured fringe. Avoid styles that emphasize width or add volume to the sides.

Example: Pompadour hairstyle with volume on top and tapered sides.

Square Face:

Characteristics: Angular jawline and equal width at the forehead, cheekbones, and jaw.

Best Haircuts: Styles that soften the angles and add texture, such as layered cuts, side-swept bangs, and medium-length styles. Avoid blunt cuts that accentuate the squareness.

Example: Textured crop with a side part and slightly longer fringe.

Oval Face: 

Characteristics: Balanced proportions with slightly wider cheekbones and a gently curved jawline.

Best Haircuts: Versatile and flattering on most styles, including short, medium, and long cuts. Experiment with different lengths and textures to highlight your features.

Example: Classic side part with medium-length hair styled neatly or with texture.

Heart Face:

Characteristics: Wider forehead and cheekbones tapering down to a narrower chin.

Best Haircuts: Styles that balance the proportions by adding volume at the jawline, such as layered cuts, side-swept bangs, and textured medium-length hairstyles. Avoid styles with too much volume at the crown.

Example: Layered haircut with side-swept bangs and tapered ends.

Diamond Face:

Characteristics: Narrow forehead and jawline with wider cheekbones.

Best Haircuts: Styles that add width at the forehead and chin while minimizing volume at the cheekbones, such as side-parted styles, textured fringe, and layered cuts. Avoid styles that emphasize the width of the cheekbones.

Example: Side-parted hairstyle with textured fringe and tapered sides.

Rectangular Face:

Characteristics: Longer than it is wide, with straight sides and a squared or rounded jawline.

Best Haircuts: Styles that add width and volume to the sides while keeping the length balanced, such as layered cuts, side-swept bangs, and medium-length styles with texture. Avoid overly long or flat styles.

Example: Layered haircut with side-swept bangs and textured ends.

Remember, these are general guidelines, and personal preferences, hair texture, and lifestyle should also be considered when choosing a haircut. It's always a good idea to consult with a professional hairstylist who can provide personalized recommendations based on your face shape and hair type.
