Your hair forms a very important part of the overall personality. While an appropriate haircut can add to your look, an ill-suited one can mar the whole appearance. You also need to be aware of the fact that a single hairstyle cannot suit each and every person in this world. There are certain basic aspects that need to be kept in mind, before you can arrive at the hairstyle that complements you the best. In case you are still confused as to how to choose men's hair styles, the tips given below will surely come to your rescue.
Choosing Haircut Styles For A Man
As the first step in choosing the perfect hairstyle for yourself, you need to take a close look at yourself in the mirror. It is very important for you to know where you stand at present and where do you intend to reach. There are a number of questions you need to answer. Is your hair curly or straight? What is the texture of your hair? Is your hair manageable? Do you have a thick growth or have you started to move towards receding hairline? All these points will help you choose a hairstyle that suits you the best.
Ascertain Your Features
You facial features also play a great role in deciding the right haircut style for you. First of all, ascertain your face cut - oval, square, oblong, triangular, round, heart-shaped or diamond-shaped? Next, check out the facial features that you need to emphasize, like a square or round jaw, or the ones that you want to downplay, such as a protruding nose. All these factors will go a long way in determining the style that flatters you the most.
Decide The Overall Look
Have you given a thought to the overall look that you want to give with the hairstyle? For instance, the hairstyle that will be sported by a college guy (who wants to look cool, hip, carefree and 'in') would be entirely different from the one donned by the CEO of the company (who has to look serious, hard working and committed). So, be aware of the perception that you want in the mind of other, who look at you. You might be unaware of it, but your haircut style speaks volumes about your personality.
Oh, no! We don't mean that you should start staring at other guys, checking out their hairstyle in detail. However, you can surely keep your eye open, especially in context of those people who have facial features that are almost similar to yours. Yet another option would be to browse through style magazines, checking out the hairstyles sported by people with almost similar facial features and hair characteristics as yours.
Talk To Your Stylist
After you have undergone a proper research on your part, it is the time to talk to your hair stylist. Make him/her aware of the facial features that you want to come out with the hairstyle as well as the ones you want to be downplayed. You might also mention the particular hairstyle (whether sported by someone in office or seen in a magazine) that you found appealing. Last, but not the least, be sure that he/she knows the overall appeal that you want to give out. Now, relax and let him/her work on your hair.
