Hairstyle For Big Forehead Male

If you’re forehead has grown (perhaps because of a receding hairline) to a “five head,” your best bet is to let some hair flop onto your forehead. “Channel Johnny Depp as John Dillinger in Public Enemies,” says Maniace. “Covering part of your forehead with hair will make it look smaller.”

You may prefer to cover up your forehead, or you may want to brush your hair out of your forehead. Either way, you can get some incredible results with the right hairstyle.

If you’ve got a triangular face (i.e. big forehead and a pointy chin), soften things up with a classic schoolboy cut — brushed forward, fuller on the sides with long bangs swept across the forehead. “You want it to be the same length from the parietal ridge to the ear with and a little texture,” says Maniace. “Channel one of the Jonas brothers. You know the one — the twit with the hair that swoops down in front.”

“Hairstyles that add width at the forehead and chin area are your best bet,” says Jamie Stevens. “Fringes work well to add texture to the forehead, while longer styles that can be tucked behind the ears are great for accentuating a diamond shape’s bone structure.”

“Avoid cuts that are very tight, as these will accentuate the narrowness of the chin and the width of the forehead,” says Stevens. “A mid-length swept look is the safest bet.” Mid-length and longer styles that are kept reasonably thin and light soften the heart shape’s strong forehead.

No bells, no whistles, just style. This simple fringe style covers a large forehead while keeping the hair short all around, and it works especially well with thick hair.

Thanks, Matthew. My look is similar. I have an oblong/oval face and high forehead. Typically, I wear a low Caesar or a low faded Caesar. I get stubble when I spend too much time editing video and not enough time around people. It grows into a Johnny Depp “Van Dyke” imitation (it just doesn’t grow long enough to be legitimate stubble) so I prefer clean shaven. I hope others find this useful, too.

For small features or a little face, go for a Little Caesar: a messy, in-your-face look that covers your forehead will draw attention to your nose, mouth and eyes. “Cover as much skin as possible,” says Maniace. “Don’t lift the hair off your face or it will make your face look teeny tiny. Maybe try wearing some glasses?”

A tiny forehead can cramp your style and your face. Shaving your head will give your face some breathing room. Ask a barber to sculpt a new hairline for you. Or, “Bleach out your hair or give it a lighter color,” says Maniace. “I know a lot of guys are going to say ‘Color my hair?!’ Believe me, it will take emphasis off your hair and make it look thinner than it is.”

That said, there are a couple of minor caveats to ensure you optimise your ovalness. “The trick with an oval face shape is to wear your hair off the forehead to create some volume and angles on top,” says Stelios Nicolaou, Aveda Master Barber. “The most suitable style is a classic shorter cut: short on the side and slightly longer on the top, with a side-swept parting.”

Black hairstyles for men take on sleek and chic forms when lines and 360 waves are involved. A faded cut with a thick, shaved part running from a forehead corner is incredibly cool and funky, without being too outlandish. In other words, it’s office-friendly.

You can experiment all you want, but a truly good cut has to fit your face shape. The Style Blog asked Shorty Maniace, Head Barber at F.S.C. Barber in New York City to explain the long and short of finding a perfect hairstyle for life. More view gallery

Seen as the ideal face shape for women, an oval may not be the most alpha of face shapes for men, but it’s a good canvas for experimentation. Symmetrical and well-proportioned, an oval face shape does pretty much any hairstyle justice, so – you lucky boy – the choice is very much yours.

Dynamic black male hairstyles don’t always suggest keeping the hair long (or even medium) on the head. A super-short, barely-there buzz cut leaves little hair up top, but you can make up for it by growing out your beard. This way you can still have some hair on your head, without needing to style or maintain it all day, every day.

Fades are among classic male styles, and it’s easy to see why. The cut delivers a clean, sophisticated look that is far from boring. It’s perfect for those with jam-packed schedules that leave them with little time for grooming.

Some black male hairstyles don’t need to be groomed or touched too often. For instance, the retro high-top with a full, robust beard is quite a statement-maker, but is far from high-maintenance.

Shaving your head will grant your nose, mouth and eyes a little more room and pull them into better proportion. Longer styles with hair on your face will make your features look cramped.

Why the long face? If you’ve got a long face and a big nose, opt for a style that’s fuller on the top and sides. Channel a little Prince Charles — okay, he’s not exactly a chick magnet — with a strong side part but leave the sides on the bushy side. “Keep bulk on the sides and top,” says Maniace. “Stay away from super short cuts. If you shave your head or did a Mohawk, or faux hawk, you’ll make your face look even longer.”

Luke James rocks a rather big ‘fro on top with clean steeply tapered sides and back. This awesome haircut requires frequent trimming to keep it in shape, but it’s worth it, undoubtedly.
