Choose the right hairstyle
How to choose the right hairstyle according to your face shape!
For oval face shapes
If your face looks like these:
You are a lucky man! This is considered the ideal face shape!! This face shape looks better with a classic short cut.
This means, short on the sides and slightly longer on top.
The trick here is not to wear your hair down on your forehead, use it backwards, that is how you avoid making your head look round.
You can also create some volume on top!
For round face shapes
Here is recommended to create the illusion of height and angles, keep your hair really short on the side and longer on top.
A messy v-cut hairstyle on top will do a stunning look!
Men with this face shape can go for long hair, but they have to keep it in a side part and make contrast with the roundness of the face.
For square face shapes
These are the blessed ones! They can play with any haircut!! Softer and classic looks, long hair, whatever.
With this shape is recommended to use a classic undercut, a slicked back hairstyle will be perfect for all occasions!!
(From office, college or homecoming), a buzz cut, or a messy disheveled look! Even you can use bangs, this looks amazing on square faces!!
For diamond or triangle face shapes
This always look great with shorter on the side and volume on top haircuts.
According to the hair type
If you have wavy hair
This one is the best type of hair for men!
They are blessed guys, you can do whatever with it! You should definitely use haircuts that have movement and volume, also you can use it long too.
It’s all about personality.
If you have straight hair
Men with this texture tends to avoid wearing slicked back because if it is straight and thick tends to look spiky, and they just don’t like that.
You should use a lot of conditioner to make your hair softer and easier to play with!
If your hair is straight but thin, use a simple short classic cut, like a tamed version of the undercut! And you will look really stunning!
If you have curly hair
Okay, this can look absolutely great with an edgier version of the undercut, or with a longer hairstyle.
Of course you can rock it like Adrien Grenier, Lenny Kravitz, or keep it casual like Justin Timberlake, James Franco or Denzel Washington.
It’s up to you!!
If you are suffering because of this, don’t worry!
You can cheat the balding a little letting your hair growing on top, and styling it in a messy way to create an illusion of you have more hair!
Even you can wear it slicked back! Or you just can be brave like Jason Statham and wear a buzz cut!!
At the end of the day it is all about swag, having fun and of course your personality, this define your style.
Another tip is to have a photo of the look that you want to emulate on you! And talk to your stylish about it.
