To give you a helping hand, we’ve pulled stylish hair inspiration and created a list of the best hairstyles for men with round faces to make your next trip to your barber a success.
Our Fave Hairstyles for Men with Round Faces
1. Classic Swept-back Quiff
You can’t talk about men’s haircuts for round faces without mentioning this timeless swept-back quiff style. Along with some short, clean-shaven stubble, you’ll be able to balance out your features and create more definition.
Editor’s tip: A small amount of VO5 Styling Wax can help you nail this hairstyle. This wax also doesn’t leave a stiff residue on your hair and it’s easy to wash off at the end of the day.
2. Side Part Hairstyle
Known for its suave, masculine feel, this is perhaps one of the most versatile and flexible men’s haircuts for round faces. Its height and length give the appearance of a longer face, while still giving enough prominence to your natural facial features. It provides the perfect balancing effect!
Editor’s tip: It’s fun to experiment with different hairstyles, but not if your hair is dandruff-ridden! Protect your scalp from dandruff from these pesky flakes by using CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It has Nutrium 10 that helps activate your scalp’s natural protective layer to keep dandruff at bay.
3. Jagged Spikes
As a simple rule, men’s haircuts for round faces work best by adding height to your hair. How? Try incorporating thick spikes, which is a great way to change the profile of your face.
This is because tall spikes, that are over an inch tall, will help give an edge to the roundness of your face. Just get your barber to cut the sides of your hair shorter to emphasize the height of your hair further.
4. Faux Hawk
The fauxhawk is one of the hottest hair trends for men right now and is great for adding optimum volume, and prominent angles to your face.
5. Modern quiff
The modern quiff is one of our favorite men’s haircuts for round faces, which will help to elongate your face shape. The trick is to create volume by simply brushing up your quiff, but we’ll leave it up to you how high you dare to go.
6. Textured Top
A great way to slim a round face, is by keeping the sides of your hair super short and neat, while the top is left messy and textured. This will create plenty of dimension, making your face look more angular while drawing the eyes upwards.
7. Curls and Bangs
If you’ve got naturally curly hair, embrace what your mama gave you and work those locks into a longer fringe. The textured finish of these longer bangs will really help draw the attention to your eyes, helping to make your face look more angular.
8. Classic Pompadour
One of the most popular men’s haircuts for round faces has to be the classic pompadour. Ideal for adding height to your tresses, the extra inches will help to make your face look leaner and longer. This is a super slick style that once cut, will be very easy to style.
Editor’s tip: For hairstyles that need control and hold, use VO5 Mega Hold Styling Gel. Its humidity-resistant formula can help your pompadour last long!
9. Long French Crop
This longer and more modern French crop is the perfect hairstyle for round faces. By adding layers this cropped cut has plenty of texture and movement and is best styled with a longer fringe.
10. Swept Back
You might think that sweeping your hair off your face wouldn’t be a good move for those with rounder faces, but this look can actually work really well. Simply keep the length long enough so that you can create plenty of volume.
