The goal of selecting a hairstyle or beard style revolves around giving your face a more oval look. Knowing your face shape can help you easily decide which styles look best on you. These are just suggestions, and there are always exceptions.

Understanding your face shape

Style Guide|Face shapes - Oval Face Shape, Oblong/Rectangle Face Shape, Square Face Shape, Round Face Shape, Diamond Face Shape, Triangular Face Shape

The idea of any beard style is to add contrast and dimension to your face’s dimensions. No face shape is ideal and no face shape is ugly. All are best if you know how to carry them 😛

Usually, there are six face shapes: oval, round, rectangle, square, diamond, and triangle.

Let’s figure out the best beard style for your face.

Oval Face Shape

It is round at both the top and bottom but also slightly long (it is like an elongated circle). It goes without saying too that an oval face can handle almost anything and everything you try on it. Oval face doesn’t have a very clearly defined jawline.

Oblong/Rectangle Face Shape

The rectangular face shape is somewhere between an oval and square-shaped face. It is a long face shape with definitions of angular edges. It can be styled in two ways- One is by keeping a beard shorter than your head hair. Secondly if one has a jaw that is more narrow than the forehead, keeping a beard longer than your hair is probably the best look.

Square Face Shape

One thing that somebody with a square face shape tries to avoid is to not get blocky, squared-off, and full because of the beard. Go for a beard style that has more hair on the chin and a little less on the sides and neck.

Round Face Shape

You struggle to find an angle on the face 🙁 but that’s okay a softer jawline is an innate feature of a round face shape. Choose a beard style that’s shorter on the sides and longer at the bottom. Don’t forget to keep a check on your sideburns and cheeks.

Diamond Face Shape

Vampire Diaries has made everyone fall in love with the cheekbones. Cheekbones are a prominent feature on a diamond-shaped face. The goal of shaping a beard on a diamond-shaped face is to keep some hair on the chin to offset the cheekbones. So as to avoid the knife-sharp look!

Triangular Face Shape

The triangular face is narrow on the top and a little extra wide along the jaw. The innate pointed jawline is a triangular face’s feature. It’s best to take away attention from the chin here.
