Today, let’s look at come haircuts ideas and short hairstyles for men with long faces.
Whether you are a guy and you look for a good hairstyle idea or you are a lady and you wonder what hairstyle advice you can give to your boyfriend or your husband, this article will help you out.
They say that you should dress according to your body type. Well, the same rationale applies to hairstyles. You should wear a do that suits your face shape. For those guys who have longer faces, long, flat hair and pointed standing styles like fauxhawks should be avoided, since they only elongate the face even more. Instead, go with one of the styles below to balance out your features.
1) The Buzz Cut
A buzz cut will work well to round off a long, angular face that needs to look fuller. This hairstyle is not only easy to do and maintain, there are a ton of variations that you can choose to imitate. The buzz can also range in thickness as well, so pick a length that suits your tastes.
2) The Textured Slicked Back Hair
Men who have long faces should be careful not to make their hair stand up. The slicked back pushes hair from the top and sides of the head towards the back. This creates the illusion of a wider face–and that’s exactly what you want. A traditional straight and flat slicked back hair won’t be ideal, however. You want to add texture and thickness to your hair by roughing it up a bit. Men who have naturally wavy hair (just like Bradley Cooper) can pull off a textured slicked back hair look quite well.
3) The Sophisticated Side-Part
Like the slickback, the side part keeps the hair close to the head to make the face look less long. This style is becoming quite popular with many big-name celebs, because it’s classy and timeless. Using a good amount of hair gel and a comb, swipe your hair to one side of the head, and comb the rest of it in a near opposite direction. You can choose the location of the part based on your preference, but it, usually, sits offset on either side of the head.
4) The Layered Bangs Look
Bangs are great for a guy with a long face for several reasons. First, the hanging hair covers up some of the face to make it appear shorter. Secondly, the layered bangs give the haircut depth and texture, so that it doesn’t fall flat and hug the face. Finally, layered bangs simply look quite attractive on certain guys.
5) The Modern Comb Over Hairstyle
How to create the comb over hairstyle? After sweeping the top layer of hair to either side, you could decide to comb the similar-length sides downward or take a shaver to it and buzz the sides. This look pairs nicely with some neatly-cropped stubble too.
The short hairstyles for men above can make a long-faced guys look like a million bucks.
