Hair, like clothes,  are a means of self expression. Unlike clothes,  one can't change out of a bad haircut. That's why it is worth knowing which hairstyles suit your face shape. To avoid that awkward period waiting for your hair to grow out.
  

Triangular face shape

Characteristics: wide cheekbones and forehead, pointed chin. Complement this face shape with these tips:

  • opt for longer hairstyles with plenty of layers to add width and volume on top
  • sport a slight fringe that softens the silhouette
  • choose a style that narrows your forehead area and adds the illusion of width to the chin
  • Justin Timberlake's hairstyle from “Suit and Tie” or Ryan Gosling’s Gangster Squad hairstyle are outstanding haircuts for triangular shaped faces

 

 

 

Square face shape

Characteristics: square jawline, long, straight sides, jaw and cheekbones the same width. Haircuts for this face shape:

  • keep hair softer around the edges to offset strong and masculine facial features
  • consider a tight, short haircut that enhances the facial features
  • avoid a center parting, and a heavy fringe
  • opt for a modern slicked back undercut

 

 

Diamond face shape

Characteristics: cheekbones are widest part of the face, narrow forehead and jawline, long pointed jawline. For this particular face shape:

  • soften the silhouette and create extra width on top by adding length
  • go with a leaner style, one that is more narrow at the cheeks, and add some fullness at the crown
  • opt for a haircut with a slicked side fringe and layers on top for extra volume
  • avoid going too sharp around the edges, as this will make the ears stick out
  • avoid wearing the hair too straight. A wavier look worn on the side instantly softens features

 

  

 

Heart face shape

Characteristics: The face is wider than it is long, Cheekbones are the widest point, and the chin is noticeably pointed. Heart face shapes can try the following:

  • keep hairstyles slightly longer
  • choose a square haircut that balances the face shape
  • opt for a tousled look that covers your forehead, as it will draw attention to your nose, mouth and eyes
  • avoid lifting the hair off your face entirely, as this will make your whole face look tiny

 

 

 

Oblong face shape

Characteristics: face longer than it is wide, often rounded jawline, cheekbones and jaw the same width. To complement this face shape:

  • avoid taking the sides too short if you want to keep length on top
  • keep the shape well proportioned, no sides that are too short or a top that is too long
  • style the hair onto the face to reduce the appearance of length and maintain balance
  • keep some length on top and try styling it either in a modern greaser, or a super-cool quiff

 

 

Oval face shape

Characteristics: Face shape resembles an egg with slightly rounded jaw. Considered the ideal shape. To enhance the oval face shape:

  • experiment with nearly any haircut, in any shape or length, as its well-balanced proportions allow for it
  • avoid a full length fringe to avoid making the face appear rounder
  • balance prominent features such as the nose and position of the eyes and ears
  • consider a squared off cut that levels the sides with the  top, something along the lines of a pompadour

 

 

 

Round face shape

Characteristics: jawline is round, face almost as wide as tall, round cheekbones. To best work with this particular face shape you should:

  • choose a haircut based on features/areas you would like to enhance or hide
  • choose a style that can be worn with a bit of height
  • add volume to your hairstyle to keep the face from looking too round
  • avoid sharp fringes as they only accentuate the natural roundness of the face shape
  • experiment with an off-center part, or some waves at the eye level to help minimize roundness
