Picking a Hairstyle Based on Facial Shape As with clothes, haircuts are not all right for you. But unlike your clothes, you can’t just take off a crappy haircut as you wish. Therefore, before visiting the barber, know what styles are best for your facial shape. Oval If your face is oval, you’re lucky – any haircut is fine looks great with that perfect symmetry. But to create the best effect, you should wear your hair off the forehead to add angles and volume on top. A classic shorter cut is your best choice, with the sides short, the top a little longer with side-swept parting. A forward fringe creates too much heaviness on the forehead, softens your features and makes the face look rounder. Forget the beard. There are no uneven gaps to fill in.
A 10-Point Plan for Styles (Without Being Overwhelmed)
Why No One Talks About Services Anymore
A square face is as versatile as its oval counterpart. That classic, neat haircut is your best option. Think side partings, short layers and close fades. A light stubble also sharpens your jawline a little and adds some texture without obscuring its line. Rectangle As a rectangular face looks longer, too short sides and a too long top should be avoided as they both emphasize facial length. Try letting your hair fall to the sides and/or across your forehead for a more proportioned look. And never ever grow a full beard – it will stretch your face down and make it look longer. Round A round face will have little in the way of natural angles, but you can always create them with the right hairstyle. A flat top or pompadour (height on top, tight at the sides) is one, front finges another. You can sharpen soft edges with square corners in the high recession area of your hair. A full square beard will also help give your jaw a more chiseled look. Diamond If you have a diamond-shaped face, a hairstyle that widens your forehead and chin is your best choice. Fringes will add texture to your forehead, and longer styles that you can tuck behind your ears do well to accentuate your bone structure. But don’t cut the sides too short though, or your ears will look larger. Heart A heart-shaped face looks bad with cuts that are too tight, because they tend to highlight your forehead’s width and your chin’s narrowness. The safest would be a mid-length swept look. And just like the diamond face shape, a heart face shape looks better with a beard that builds heaviness around the lower and narrower half of the head. Triangle With its narrow forehead and wide jawline, a triangular face will need the exact opposite treatment given to a heart shape. Volume and depth are what you need. Longer, nose-length and full-sided haircuts are the best. As for the beard, don’t go beyond a light stubble.
