Every man has, at one point or another, sat down in the barber’s chair and has asked, “What will it be today?” what style should i wear this time around?.. I remembered a certain time that i got tired of my look, it was a style that every young handsome guy like me would always wear, you can’t take a walk round the park, grocery store, at the games, events without seeing this my particular hair cut. It made me feel like a celebrity that every one want’s to imitate.
even my friends would always tease me saying, “what are you feeling like? do you think it’s you that everyone is looking up-to me..? and then I decided to get a new look to really see if what they were saying was actually the truth… as i sat there in the barber’s chair, my barber asked me should i give you a cut that suits your face type and I was wondering, “my face type”? Hmmm.. didn’t know we had face types. Just then he pulled out a magazine that i thought, to share with you all.. it was really an eye opener for me..
One needs to take into consideration his/her type of face before getting a hair cut or hair style. We have a recommendation: instead of just saying “the same as last time” or “the usual,” take into account your face shape for a brand-new hair style. Some styles look better or worse based on your face shape, and this infographic — based on the one my barber showed me — will help you pick the best.
See what popular haircut you should really be getting, based on the shape of your face.
Oblong: Face is longer than it is wide
Be careful with a bushy beard, however, as that could make your face look even bigger.
Oval: Narrow, with no sharp edges
A word of caution: avoid bangs or fringes that could cover your forehead and make your head appear even rounder than it already is.
Diamond: Strong jaw and angular cheek bones
a faux hawk or textured crop.
Round: Face is equal in length and width
Because of that, you may consider a cut that is shorter on the sides and taller on the top, which would give a round face balance.
Square: Angular and prominent
They’re similar to round faces in that they’re best softened with a cut that’s taller on the top. But square-faced men also have the option of going for a really short haircut
that will balance out with their naturally round head.
Triangle: Prominent jaw, which is wider than the cheekbones
Men with this shape are better off clean-shaven and with medium-length hair.
