Know your Face Type: The best men's haircut for every face shape

Every man has, at one point or another, sat down in the barber’s chair and has asked, “What will it be today?” what style should i wear this time around?.. I remembered a certain time that i got tired of my look, it was a style that every young handsome guy like me would always wear, you can’t take a walk round the park, grocery store, at the games, events without seeing this my particular hair cut. It made me feel like a celebrity that every one want’s to imitate.

even my friends would always tease me saying, “what are you feeling like? do you think it’s you that everyone is looking up-to me..?  and then I decided to get a new look to really see if what they were saying was actually the truth… as i sat there in the barber’s chair, my barber asked me should i give you a cut that suits your face type and I was wondering, “my face type”? Hmmm.. didn’t know we had face types. Just then he pulled out a magazine that i thought, to share with you all.. it was really an eye opener for me..

One needs to take into consideration his/her type of face before getting a hair cut or hair style. We have a recommendation: instead of just saying “the same as last time” or “the usual,” take into account your face shape for a brand-new hair style. Some styles look better or worse based on your face shape, and this infographic — based on the one my barber showed me — will help you pick the best.

See what popular haircut you should really be getting, based on the shape of your face.

Oblong: Face is longer than it is wide

Short haircuts are best for an oblong or rectangular face.
Be careful with a bushy beard, however, as that could make your face look even bigger. 

Oval: Narrow, with no sharp edges

Luckily, most hairstyles will look good with an oval face shape.
A word of caution: avoid bangs or fringes that could cover your forehead and make your head appear even rounder than it already is. 

Diamond: Strong jaw and angular cheek bones


diamond shaped

The best case scenario here is to pair a beard with a fringed haircut like

 a faux hawk or textured crop.

Round: Face is equal in length and width

 round face
Round faces could use some definition to make them appear longer.
Because of that, you may consider a cut that is shorter on the sides and taller on the top, which would give a round face balance. 

Square: Angular and prominent

Square faces have lots of sharp angles and, often, a masculine look.
They’re similar to round faces in that they’re best softened with a cut that’s taller on the top. But square-faced men also have the option of going for a really short haircut

that will balance out with their naturally round head.

Triangle: Prominent jaw, which is wider than the cheekbones


This slideshow requires JavaScript.


A triangular face has a prominent jaw that is wider than the cheekbones.
Men with this shape are better off clean-shaven and with medium-length hair. 
..So now that you’ve seen  the different shape of faces and the kind of hair cut that suits your face type, hurry now to your barber and get that awesome cut that will make you get all the sexy ladies eyes rolling and drawling…
