Face Shape Hairstyles for Men
Choose a Hairstyle According to your Face Shape!
With all the trending fall and winter hairstyles, it can be difficult deciding on a style. Before deciding on that modern or retro look, it is wise to choose a hairstyle that best suites the shape of your face.
Below are some tips to follow when deciding on a hairstyle that is right for you. Remember to consult with your barber or stylist before making any drastic changes and to make sure you understand your true face shape.
The Long/Oblong Face:
Choose a style that is shorter on top and longer on the sides. Add a few layers to cover up your front hairline. If you can grow a short beard, this would be helpful in adding an overall balance to your face. Remember to keep the beard nice and short because a longer beard will lengthen your face even more.Actor with Long Face: Hugh Laurie
A side part with bangs swept to the side will add the illusion of a wider chin or narrow the forehead. Longer hairstyles with lots of volume on the top are recommended.

Styles with bangs will help minimize the forehead. Long and shaggy haircuts will look best for this face shape.

The square face is associated with masculinity and a chiseled jaw line. Opposite of the long face, keep your sides short with length and volume on top. Softness around the edges looks best with a nice clean cut around the ears. Avoid a center part and don’t go too short!

In order to provide more balance, keep your sides clean and short. Add volume and length to the top or even try an off-centered part to minimize the roundness. Square hairstyles work best with this face shape.
