As you think about your hairstyle, and that of other men you know, you may discover some interesting facts about men’s hairstyles and facial shapes. Most men have square facial shapes, but there are many different shapes, as well. Even if you had a rounder face when you were young, or if you lose some of your square chin due to age or weight gain, you will still have some square influence in the planes of your face.
There are many occasions where you may need a formal hairstyle. Whether it be at receptions, parties, proms or weddings, you will want to look your best, and a trendy formal hairstyle will help to accent your shoes and outfit that are so carefully picked for the event.
Men with medium length hair can take their pick of the styles they would like to wear. Depending on your facial shape, your hairstylist will be able to recommend a number of styles that will work with your hair type and facial structure. If you’re not sure what look you’re after, you can check out pictures of celebrity and other haircuts in style magazines as well as online. You will want to identify the shape of your face first, before you decide on one particular hairstyle. The weight of your hair and the time you have for styling will also help determine what style will work best for you.
If you’re a man with thinning hair, there are hairstyles you can utilize to make your hair appear fuller, or at least accentuate your sense of style. To cover up hair loss, you may wish to grow your bangs a bit longer, like actor Charlie Sheen does. Tell your stylist to leave more hair in the front and over your temples.
If you take good care of your thin hair, it will keep your hairline from noticeably receding. If you style your hair carefully, it can help you feel younger and give you more self-confidence. We all need to accept the type of hair we have, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to make your hair look thicker than it normally is.
You have probably noticed that men’s celebrity hairstyles are changing this year. Some celebrity men have been seen wearing longer styles, but many more have opted for a shorter look, especially as they age. Short hair can be flattering for all kinds of thicknesses and textures. If you have cowlicks that drive you nuts, a shorter cut will help to tame them.
You can try classic hairstyles once worn by James Dean and Errol Flynn, since that particular look is back in style. Medium hairstyles have great texture, which helps to update the classic look you strive for. Check with your barber and see if he can give you more style, through texturizing and razoring. When you style your hair a bit in the morning before work, just use a touch of product to keep it in place.
If you want a slightly longer look, try a classic cut that’s allowed to look a bit overgrown. This style works well for Pierce Brosnan and Mark Ruffalo. If your hair is overgrown already, don’t ignore it – longer hairstyles need maintenance, too. A good mousse or styling foam can help give you a bit more control without making your hair crunchy.
If you have a generally square-shaped face, use a hairstyle that is cut out around the ears. Matt Damon sports a look like this, almost like a flat top. Not every man has a strictly square face, though. A modified square face works well with the same type of style, as you’ll see on Charlie Sheen, Hugh Laurie and Ben Affleck.
As a rule, male celebrities boast styles with shiny and healthy hair, with more texture at the ends. If you want more colour added to your style, you can forgo the smaller areas of highlights and have your stylist apply hair colour to larger sections of your hair.
If you’re still not sure how celebrities consistently look so good, remember that they have hairdressers at their disposal all the time. It also has to do with research, which means finding the right styles for your hair type and facial shape. Styling by the shape of your face will help you to decide on the right colour, cut and style for you, and will help you make decisions about any sideburns or facial hair to add to your style as well.
