Pick The Best Men’s Hairstyles By Face Shape
Picking a good hairstyle for men is harder than it looks. And while a bad haircut will always grow out, we’ve yet to find a guy who wants to deal with an awkward look until their next cut. The solution is simple – get the right haircut and style the first time by figuring out your face shape.
Most guys see a cool haircut on a celebrity and immediately make the mistake of thinking that it would look good on them too. What works for David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, or Justin Timberlake won’t necessarily work for you if you don’t, for example, have Beckham’s strong jawline, prominent forehead, and square face.
So how can guys tell what face shape they have? And how can you decide what haircut to get according to your face shape?
Hairstyles According To Face Shapes
There are six different face shapes – square, round, oval, oblong, diamond, and triangular – and each shape has unique characteristics and corresponding men’s hairstyles.
For example, a round face is defined by equal length and width with less angular features. On the other hand, a diamond-shaped face is longer with sharp features, a defined chin, and cheekbones that are the widest part of the face. Once you’ve figured out your face shape, you need to figure out the best cuts and styles.
If this process seems tedious, fortunately for you, we’ve discovered an awesome resource to help. Below, you’ll find a cool graphic describing each face shape in detail and listing some stylish haircuts to try. The guide even comes with illustrations to make everything easy.
