Men Hairstyles that Compliments Face Shape

Posted on   |   Comments (2)

Picking a hairstyle that compliments your face shape is one of the most important features to consider. Along with your face shape, your hairstyle should match your personality, style, and hair type.

The first thing you need to do is figure out the shape of your face. There are 7 main types of face shapes: Oval, Square, Oblong, Heart, Triangular, Diamond, and Round.

Oval Face

Considered to be the ideal face shape, in that just about every style looks good on. Try a few different styles to see what suits you best. You would look great on short, medium or long hair.

Square Face

A strong and broad forehead with angular jaw defines it. Your main aim should be to give some roundness around your face and soften your strong jaw line. Hair should be styled to slenderize the face. The hair on top of the head should be reasonably full, possibly with short bangs that blend at the temples. A textured style with layers can look good on a square face.

Oblong Face

Your face is much longer than its wide. Generally you have a high forehead, but narrow chin with straight (almost the same width) forehead, cheekbones, jaw line, and sometimes with a longish nose. Hair should be styled to shorten the length of the face. Adding bangs or otherwise styling the hair forward to cover the hairline may work well.

Heart Face

You have a broad forehead and strong cheekbones with a narrow chin. Give some width around narrow chin, or add length at the top to balance the narrow chin. Textured and wispy layers chin-length hairstyles will suit you best.

Triangular Face

Your forehead and cheekbones are narrow with a wide jaw line. With a triangular face shape, your object is to narrow your chin and widen your forehead. Layered hairstyles will help to balance and soften prominent jaw line. Short hairstyle with heavy layers on the top and sides allows hair to be rounder, fuller, and create more volume above the ears. Medium hair that taper to the jaw line with side swept bangs and shags style also work great for you.

Diamond Face

Characterized by narrow forehead and jaw line with wide and high cheekbones. You need to balance your narrow chin, minimize wider cheekbones and shorten the overall length. Diamond face shapes need to soften the pointed forehead, balance a narrow chin and minimize wider cheekbones. Hairstyles that add width at the chin area and the forehead area, or should length wispy work well.

Round Face

Round face shape symbolizes peace, communication, and cute. If you have a round face, your object is to add its length and reduce its width. The hairstyle should be cut to slim the face. Very short styles that follow the curve of the head will emphasize roundness and should be avoided. Leaving the hair a bit longer/fuller and adding texture on top will help lengthen the face. Beards should be styled to slim the face as well.
