The right cut can make all the difference. Men and women have many different ways in which to give their appearance a much needed boost. Just as there is a right shade of foundation for your skin or a certain style of watch that matches your suit, there is a cut for every face shape.
We typically follow the celebrity trends. What is trending amongst celebrities serves as inspiration for our next look or hairstyle. Yet, what we forget is that those styles are tailored to their face shape.
We did some research and found some helpful tips from the CEO of the Grooming Concierge, Craig the Barber. Thanks Craig!
First, note the different types of shapes. Men can have pear, triangular, oval, round and square faces.
Pear shaped faces are identified by the broad jaw line and narrow forehead. Round haircuts work best for this shape. Make sure the sides are equal in length to help balance the face.
Triangular faces can be quickly identified by the narrow chin. If you don’t want to have others focus on the wide hairline, keep your hair short.
Oval faces allow for more versatile cuts. Men with oval faces can try any hair cut and length because of the face’s symmetry.
Round faces benefit with haircuts and hair styles that have more length. With a round jaw line and sometimes a round hairline, longer hair aids in lengthening the face.
Square faces, like the oval faces, can work with any haircut. Typically, we suggest staying away from flattops (think Simon Cowell from American Idol), it will just make your face look more square.
Next on your list gentlemen: Find the perfect suit.
