The Men's Guide To Choosing A Hairstyle

Close

A man's hairstyle says a lot about the type of person he is and how he carries himself. Different hairstyles give off different impressions on who you are as a person. In a world where first impressions are very important, your hairstyle also becomes very important. Unfortunately for men, genetics and other factors may limit options when it comes to hairstyles. However, you shouldn't worry too much as there is definitely a hairstyle that works with your hair and fits the look you're going for, you just have to find it! Now you may be wondering how one can find the perfect hairstyle without having to go through years of trial and error. Thankfully there are ways to find the perfect hairstyle for an individual. Here's the complete men's guide to choosing a hairstyle.

Hair Genetics

One of the biggest influences on what hairstyle you will eventually choose is the genetics of your hair. Some people have extremely thick hair, which makes their hair better suited to certain hairstyles than others. On the other hand, people with very thin hair may be limited to certain hairstyles as well. Other factors could include things such as cowlicks or hair color. In addition, some hair responds to product differently than other hair, meaning that your options may be limited if a hairstyle requires product that simply doesn't agree with your hair. Finally, those that are older may struggle with finding a hairstyle that fits them. Hair can accumulate damage over time, resulting in hair damage or even hair loss. There are treatments like PRP for hair loss that you can undergo to solve this problem, but still it is something to consider when trying to decide on a hairstyle.

Face Shape

Another major part of what hairstyle will work with you is the shape of your face. Certain hairstyles only work with certain face shapes, and if you try to mix and match then the results may be less than satisfactory. There are six types of men's face shapes: round, diamond, square, oval, oblong, and triangle. Each of these six face shapes has distinct features that make hairstyles work or fall short with each face shape. Figuring out what your face shape is and how it affects what hairstyles you can choose from is a major step in picking a hairstyle. Round faces typically have a similar size length and width while diamond shaped faces are defined by wide cheeks. Square faces are known for their wide jaws while oval and oblong faces are known for being extremely wide. Finally, triangular faces are defined by their pointy chin and wide jaw. Figure out what type of face you are and you are well on your way to choosing a hairstyle.

Find A Reliable Barber/Hair Stylist

Having a reliable hair stylist that can carry out your vision of what you want is just as important as the steps that were previously mentioned. You may have a combination that works in your mind, but if the person styling your hair isn't experienced or skilled, then it may not end up looking that great. When it comes to finding a hair stylist or barber, you often get what you pay for. This means that if you want your hairstyle to actually look good, then you're going to need to find a skilled professional and will likely have to pay a decent amount for it. However, once you see the great result you'll realize it was all worth it in the end.

Taking Care Of Your Hair

Taking care of your hair is very important when deciding your hairstyle. As mentioned before, different hairstyles react differently to certain products, meaning that certain hairstyles may be off limits if your hair doesn't react properly to hair products. In addition, many hairstyles may require you to put a lot of time and effort into styling your hair. If you're someone who doesn't want to spend time, money, and effort into constantly upkeeping your hairstyle, then you may want to go with something that is a bit more simplistic. Finally, regardless of what hairstyle you choose it will not look good unless you put some effort into keeping your hair clean. This at the very least means washing it with high quality shampoo and conditioner and combing it on a regular basis. A little care can go a long way in making your hair look nice.
