Decoding Men’s Hairstyles: Finding the Perfect Cut for Your Face Shape

In the world of Men’s Grooming, one size definitely does not fit all. Just as no two faces are alike, neither should be your haircut. We understand men want to look their best, and we’re here to help you find your perfect look. It takes a brave man to sit in a barber chair try something completely new but rest assured our highly trained and skilled barbers are here to support you.

Figuring out the nuances of men’s hairstyles and finding the perfect cut for your unique face shape can be a game-changer in your grooming routine. So, let’s dive in and discover some of the men’s hairstyles you may not know and unveil the secrets to finding the perfect cut for your face shape.

Understanding Face Shapes:

Before diving into the haircuts, it’s essential to understand the different face shapes and how they influence the overall look of your hairstyle. The primary face shapes include:

Round: Characterised by soft angles and a wider width than length.

Square: Defined by strong, angular features with a similar width and length.

Oval: Considered the most versatile shape, with balanced proportions and slightly rounded contours.

Rectangle/Oblong: Longer than it is wide, with straighter sides and a more elongated appearance.

Diamond: Narrow at the forehead and jawline, with wider cheekbones.

Choosing the Right Hairstyle for you:

Now that you have a better understanding of your face shape, it’s time to choose a hairstyle that complements your unique features:

  1. Round Face: For round faces, aim to add some length and volume to elongate the face. Opt for hairstyles with height on top, such as pompadours, faux hawks, or textured crops. Avoid overly short cuts that accentuate the roundness of your face.


  1. Square Face: Square faces benefit from softer, more rounded hairstyles to balance out the angular features. Consider layered cuts, side-swept bangs, or textured styles to soften the corners of your face. Avoid harsh, boxy cuts that emphasise your square jawline.


  1. Oval Face: Lucky you! Oval faces can pull off almost any hairstyle with ease. Experiment with different lengths, textures, and styles to showcase your versatility. From classic crew cuts to trendy undercuts, the world is your oyster.


  1. Rectangle/Oblong Face: To counterbalance the elongated shape of a rectangle or oblong face, opt for hairstyles that add width and volume to the sides. Shorter cuts with texture on top, such as messy quiffs or layered crops, work well to visually widen the face. Avoid overly long hairstyles that further elongate your features.


  1. Diamond Face: Diamond-shaped faces benefit from hairstyles that minimise the width of the cheekbones while adding volume to the forehead and chin. Consider side-parted styles, slicked-back looks, or textured layers to achieve balance. Avoid hairstyles with too much volume on the sides, as they can accentuate the width of your cheekbones.


Consult with your Barber:
