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.
