3 Men’s hairstyles for round faces to try

The modern quiff

The modern quiff is a great way to elongate a full round face. The trick is to create volume by simply brushing up your quiff, but we’ll leave it up to you how tall you dare to go…

Editor’s tip: Looking for the perfect product to help you create your quiff? Try the VO5 Casual Control Dry Texture Spray to create casual and relaxed looks, or the TIGI Bed Head For Men Slick Trick Pomade if you’re a fan of the wet-look trend.

The faux hawk

Love the choppy and adventurous look of a mohawk, but don’t want the long-term hair commitment? Well, the good news is, you don’t need any special cutting technique to achieve this faux hawk! Simply apply a styling product such as wax, gel, or pomade (our favourite is VO5 Extreme Style Groomed Grooming Pomade) to damp hair, comb your hair up and then carefully press it together from each side using your hands.

Angular fringe

Before you scoff at our suggestion of a man fringe, hear us out because a fringe could instantly help to define your soft round-shaped face. But remember that not all fringes are created equally, so opt for a side fringe that is choppy, sweeping and angular.
