Hairstyles and Beard Styles Guide That Suits Your Face Shape

An experiment with hairstyles and beards at least once in your life is necessary. Some people use changing their appearance to go from one appearance to another, while others use it to transition from one stage of life to another. When they wear a new hairstyle, they feel confident and beautiful. They feel more in control of their appearance and other parts of their lives after changing their hair.

The face shape helps you identify what hairstyle and beard style suit you. Similar to how clothes suit certain body types, beards and hairstyles suit certain men. and this depends on their face shape. If you’re not sure what your face shape is, refer to our other article. Insert article link.

The various face shapes are listed below, along with recommendations for beard and hairstyle options for each.

1. Diamond 

Hairstyles: 

People with a diamond face shape should try hairstyles that have more volume. Long hair and man bun hairstyles would look good as they add width to the forehead. Hairstyles with fringes are also recommended. Basically, one needs to make sure the cheekbone doesn’t look any broader than it is and that a balance is maintained.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

When it comes to beards, men with a diamond face shape should have a low, soft beard outline. The beard should start below the cheeks, along the natural angular shape of the jawline. Some styles like a box beard, chin beard, and pointed beard would really suit this face shape. It is also advised to keep a narrow moustache since a thick one would enhance the cheekbones and make them look wider. A bushy moustache would also add a nice touch to the overall look. Handlebar, pyramidal, and Van Dyke moustaches are some styles that one can try.

2. Heart Diamond 

Hairstyles: 

When getting your hair styled, the goal is to reduce the width of the forehead. Hairstyles that are heavy on top and allow the hair to flow naturally along the face frames should be preferred. Fringe and pompadour hairstyles would also suit this face shape. Try to avoid hair cuts that are very short on the sides, as they would give the illusion of a wider forehead and jawline.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

The heart diamond face shape has a similar jawline as the diamond face shape. Growing a fuller beard that adds more volume to the chin would make a face look more proportionate. If big beards are not your style, then you can try growing stubble as well. A heart-diamond face shape would benefit from stubble and a trimmed moustache. A moustache would improve the width of the face’s midsection in the right areas. Heavy and large mustaches, on the other hand, are not permitted. Instead, go for a Van Dykes style or a pencil moustache to complete your look.

3. Round 

Hairstyles: 

Hairstyles that are heavy on the top and voluminous would look good on a man with a round face. It will add length to the face and provide angularity. The centre parting also gives the same illusion. Side fringes and off-center hair parting hairstyles soften the edges and give an even more rounded look. Hence, they should be avoided completely.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

Growing a beard is an excellent choice if one has a round face. Beards contour the jawline and give it a more defined structure. Keep the beard well-trimmed so that it doesn’t make the face look wider. A bushy sidelock would not work on a round face. For a chiselled jawline look, one can go for a goatee, box beard, or a pointed beard. For a round face, moustaches that lengthen the face, such as Pencil and Van Dyke, are recommended. A broad, thick, and large moustache would further conceal the facial features and make a face appear rounder, so they should be avoided.

4. Triangle 

Hairstyles: 

Because the bottom of the face is very heavy, choose hairstyles that widen the upper part of the face. Long and medium-length hair would help achieve exactly that. Adding volume on top is a must to enhance the forehead. Additionally, hairstyles with side parts and fringes would suit a triangular face cut.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

As the jawline is the highlight in this shape, you can grow a full beard to tone it down a bit. One can explore styles like boxed and imperial beards as well. Regular trimming and styling of the beard are advisable; otherwise, it would have the opposite effect on its proportions. But if you are looking to boost your jawline, then a clean-shaven look would be the best option. You can hone a large, bushy moustache like a handlebar or horseshoe to draw attention to the cheekbones, or a thin one to make the jawline look less wide.

5. Square

Hairstyles: 

Short and neat haircuts look really impressive on a square face shape. Like the oval face shape, the square face shape also has a lot of room to experiment with new hairstyles. They can pull off crew cuts, swept-back, and side-parted hairstyles easily.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

Angular beards can be used to enhance the already dominant jawline, while voluminous beards can soften it. Narrow beards don’t look good on a square face. On the other hand, beard styles like imperial, circle, pointed, and boxed would all look spectacular. Moustaches also serve the same purpose as beards. Longer and fuller mustaches, such as Handlebar, Horseshoe, or Van Dyke, will draw attention to the desired features of the face. Narrow moustaches would get lost and would look out of place, so it’s best to avoid them.

6. Oblong 

Hairstyles: 

To cut the length of the face, you should go for a mid-length hairstyle. Hair that is too short or too long will make a face appear even longer. Styles with a centre part should also be avoided. One can go for long, thick sideburns, as that would make a face appear broader.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

From a full beard to a circle beard to a stubble, most beard styles suit an oblong face.However, just make sure that it balances out the face length to make it less elongated. The same applies to moustaches too. Handlebar and horseshoe moustaches are good styles to experiment with. Since the face structure is on the larger side, a small and thin moustache would do nothing to your face.

7. Oval 

Hairstyles: 

As stated before, the oval face shape can carry any style of hair, but round haircuts would complement their face more. Fringes could be a little risky, though; if the hair is too heavy on the forehead, it will make your face look rounder instead of oval. One can also take advantage of this face shape and experiment with a bald look.

Moustache and Beard Styles:

People with oval face shapes have the liberty to explore beard styles. One doesn’t need to accentuate any particular feature of their face; they just have to make sure they don’t go overboard. V-shaped beards would look the best for this. Other styles like the inverted T-beard, chin beard, and sideburns are also worth trying. A bushy, thick moustache is not something that will suit every oval-faced man. Instead, go for a light, sharp, and angular moustache to amplify the structure. You can give the pencil or pyramidal moustache a shot.

Conclusion

By now, you should have a fairly good idea of what your face shape is and which different styles you can pull off. It is important to learn to experiment and know which ones work and which ones don’t. Next time you’re getting a trim or a cut, you’ll know exactly what suits you. This will give you the advantage of looking even better than you already do. Remember to look for something you like and that makes you look smart and sexy. The better you look, the more confident you will feel, and the longer you will live
