When it comes to hair cuts, it might seem as if men don't have as much choice as women. In fact, plenty of options are available. Several factors should be taken into account when choosing a new hair cut, including lifestyle, profession and personal taste. One of the most important factors is face shape. Certain styles are far better suited to particular face shapes.

Soften the angles of a square face and chiseled jawline by leaving hair longer on top than on the sides. Keep hair on the sides an inch or long. The hair on top should be a finger's length to disguise sharp corners.
Create the desirable oval or heart shaped face by leaving hair long on top and slightly longer around the parietal ridge, which is the place your skull starts curving towards the top of your head.
Make a round face look narrower with a flat top cut. Keep it short on the sides and create a block shape around the temple.
Brush hair forward and keep it full on the sides to soften a triangular face (large forehead and pointed chin). Go for a long fringe and sweep it across your forehead.
Keep hair well away from large facial features to make them look more in proportion. Steer clear of longer hair styles, which will give your features even less room.
Cover your forehead if you have small facial features. Go for a messy style that hides as much skin as possible. Don't go for a short cut, or brush your hair back off your forehead, as this will make your features look even smaller.
Make a low forehead look wider by shaving your head or asking your hairdresser to create a new hairline. Dyeing your hair a lighter colour will also divert attention from your hair.
Choose a style that covers your forehead if it is particularly high, such as a floppy fringe swept to one side. Shaving your head or going for a really short cut will only emphasis a large forehead.
Create a well-defined side parting and leave the sides and top full to disguise a long face. Avoid really short cuts if your head has a cone-like shape.
