Match your facial hair to your face shape

It’s easy to go along with the latest facial hair trend or keep rolling with the shave you’ve been mastering your whole life. BUT there’s actually some logic behind how to match your facial hair to your face shape for the cleanest look ever.

The golden rule of facial hair styles is:Your facial hair and jaw should work together to achieve an oval shape.This no-fuss formula helps you to stick to a style that accentuates your face.

Square:

Your face shape is very angular, with a prominent square chin, broad forehead and jawline.

To achieve a more oval shape, you need your facial hair to be fuller on the chin and shorter on the sides.

Get this look with:

  • Scruffy Beard (trimmed)
  • Beard with hard lines (enhances)
  • Beard without hard lines (softens)
  • Goatee
  • Moustache

Round:

Your face has full cheeks, and is equal in width and length with limited angles.

To achieve an oval shape, you need to match your facial hair to be fuller and longer on the bottom and shorter on the sides.

Get this look with:

  • Beard / Close (trimmed with hard lines)
  • Moustache

Heart Shaped (also called Inverted Triangle):

Your forehead and cheekbones are wider than your jawline, your chin comes to a point.

To achieve an oval shape, you need to match your facial hair to be fuller on the chin and shorter on the sides.

Get this look with:

  • Full beard (trimmed or not)
  • Scruffy Beard

Triangle:

Your forehead is narrow but your jawline is the widest part of your face. Can be referred to as a pear shaped face.

To achieve an oval shape, you need to match your facial hair to be fuller along your neck and chin to accentuate your jawline.

Get this look with:

  • Full beard (trimmed to slim face and square jawline)

Oval:

Your forehead is slightly wider than your chin, and the length of your face is one and a half times the width.

Most styles of facial hair accentuate your face shape because it is the desired oval shape.

These styles work:

  • Goatee
  • Moustache
  • Scruffy beard (trimmed or not)
  • Full beard

Oblong/Rectangular:

Your forehead is wide, and your chin comes to a point with similar length in your face as an oval face shape.

To achieve an oval shape, you need to match your facial hair to be fuller on the sides and shorter on the bottom.

Get this look with:

  • Beard/Close (trimmed – shortens and squares face)
  • Moustache (shortens face)

Diamond:

Your face is widest at the cheekbones, and your forehead and jawline are the same width.

To achieve an oval shape, you need to match your facial hair to be fuller along the jaw and chin, and shorter on the sides.

Get this look with:

  • Full beard (squares and covers chin)
  • Goatee (covers and broadens chin)
  • Chin strap

Back in the ol’ days, men were often pressured to aspire to a certain male archetype. The wage earning, strong, stoic hunter/gatherer kind of lad. Always in control, always succeeding, always reaching for more, never truly able to express his emotions or be vulnerable. You know the one *looking at you, Don Draper*.
