How to Pick the Right Hairstyle Based on Your Facial Shape Haircuts are like clothes – they don’t all look good on you. But unlike your clothes, you can’t take off a bad haircut anytime you want to. Therefore, before visiting the barber, know what styles are best for your facial shape. Oval If your face is oval, you’re a lucky boy – any haircut will do. 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 will create excessive heaviness on the forehead, soften your features, and make your face appear rounder. Ditch the beard. You have no disproportionate gaps to fill in.

How to Achieve Maximum Success with Styles
Like the oval, a square face spells versatility. A classic, neat haircut is perfect for this shape. Picture close fades, side partings and short layers. A light stubble will add some sharpness and, of course, a little texture without obscuring your jawline. Rectangle A rectangular face looks longer, so you need to avoid haircuts where the sides are too short or the top is too long, because these would only highlight the length of the face. Let your hair fall across your forehead and/or to the sides for a better proportioned style. And don’t grow a full beard – it will only make your face look longer. Round A round will naturally have no angles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create some using certain hairstyles. A flat top or pompadour (height on top, tight at the sides) is one, front finges another. To sharpen any soft ages, you can 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 Hairstyles that make the forehead and chin area look wider, are the best for a diamond-shaped face. To add texture to the forehead, fringes work great; while longer styles that can be slipped behind the ears are great for accentuating your bone structure. Don’t make the sides too short though as this will make your ears look bigger. Heart If your face is heart-shaped, you should avoid cuts that are too tight as they tend to accentuate a wide forehead and a narrow chin. A medium-length swept look is your best bet. And like the diamond face shape, a heart face shape benefits from a beard building some fullness in the head’s lower and narrower half. Triangle With its narrow forehead and wide jawline, a triangular face will need the exact opposite treatment given to a heart shape. The main idea is to volume up and add depth. Aim for a fuller-sided, longer, nose-length haircut. As for the beard, don’t go beyond a light stubble.
