If you want to define which haircut that you do best is, ultimately you must first identify what is the shape of your face; because this information will be your best tool when choosing a good cut.

So much so, that a good professional or stylist bases his strategy; in cutting a person’s hair according to their type of face.

The right haircut is one that accentuates the flattering features of your face and disguises those aspects that are not so much. Additionally, it can improve your overall image.

We have, then, to evaluate between the different forms of face and with that reference choose the cut that best lends you; depending on whether it fits your facial type and target.

The human face, in general, is framed in at least seven fairly defined basic shapes: The oval, the diamond shape, the round, the square, the rectangular, the elongated and the triangular.

For each of these shapes there are different options for cutting and styling, or at least the right suggestion to wear some style.

Haircut for an oval face

This is the type of face that we could consider the ideal, by virtue of the harmonious proportions, so almost all the cuts will make you look great.

When it comes to choosing, the shorter ones are the ones that will best mark the attractiveness of your factions.

Something to remember: Do not adopt hairstyles with bangs, as they will make you see the most oval face.

Haircut for a diamond face

You can bet on a half mane to make combination with a beard that makes you highlight the cheekbones.

In this sense, the hipster style of haircuts offers different alternatives for this type of face; as well as options in tupés and hairstyles upwards that will surely attract attention before your factions.

Haircut for a round face

Our recommendation is a long cut that allows attenuating a little the perception of roundness.

An example would be to bet on a half mane, or bring more volume of hair upwards so that the looks go to that point.

Another suggestion is the cut with stripe, which also seeks to raise your profile and attenuate the roundness of your face and make it look much more attractive and well defined.

Haircut for a square face

The ideal cut for this type of face will be the one that softens the features.

What we must do is highlight the angles of the face that are not so marked, so a cut with enough hair in the middle and both shaved sides is the best option.

Bangs also apply correctly to such factions.

Haircut for a rectangular face

With this cut we seek to attenuate the perception of width of the face, so the volume towards the forehead, or perhaps some bangs, may be the best alternative to attenuate the hardness of these features.

Men, who have curly hair, should take care to take advantage of those curls so that they are the ones that attract the eyes.

Haircut for an elongated face

If what you want is that the face does not look very elongated, you have to find a way to use a cut in which the largest volume of hair goes to the sides of the head; leaving a part to bring it to the forehead.

With this type of face, the volume on the sides is the most effective way to “widen” the perception of it.

Haircut for a triangular face

The bangs return to be the best allies of men who have a broad forehead that gives the face that triangular shape.

However, also the cuts that involve striped hairstyles are usually very effective to disguise a forehead that is somewhat prominent.

There are alternatively the classic cuts, such as the so-called “pompadour” or also the “quif” that will not leave them badly off.

The cuts of this type are reminiscent of those tupés of all life, because of the similarity they keep; although these have the sides a little lowered.
