In fact, how you should cut your hair really depends on the types of styles that are compatible with your face and hair type. While all guys want a stylish haircut, styling a very popular look you saw on a celebrity can just look weird if you have the wrong face shape for the cut.
If you’re excited about trying a cool hairstyle in 2017 but aren’t sure if it’s the right kind of haircut for you, your stylist or barber should be able to help. However, if you’d like to research new hairstyle ideas, the hair experts at Men’s Hairstyles Today have put together the best resource we’ve seen on the subject. To help guys determine what haircut to get, they’ve designed an awesome infographic detailing the best hairstyles for men according to face shape.
In the guide, which we’ve published below, these bloggers describe the different face shapes (i.e. oval, round, square, etc.) for guys and make recommendations on the types of styles best-suited for each. The graphic even goes two steps further and suggests what cuts and styles to avoid as well as facial hair ideas.
For example, a guy with a round face should probably choose a fade or undercut on the sides, and a hairstyle that offers volume on top. By styling a pompadour, faux hawk, fringe or quiff on top, men are able to create the illusion that the face is elongated. And for a more chiseled jawline, guys may consider a full beard.

Couldn’t be more wrong. Every year there is a certain hairstyle that is trending and every year these guys without personalities adopt it and look dull. Instead, you should really focus on your face shape and your face angles when getting a haircut and style it appropriately. The results can be seen immediately when it comes to confidence, women and so on. This article is exactly… Read more »
I think the best haircut is one that makes the face more narrow.
I hadn’t thought about getting a hair style based on the shape of my face. I can see that looking into this can help anyone get the best style and attention they want. It makes sense that deciding where to get your hair cut is just as important and it should be researched as well. I would want to find a company that has great online reviews from previous customers.
