12 Simple Regimens to Style Your Kids Hair Across Every Texture

Kids’ hair comes in different textures just like the grownups’—fine, wavy, curly, coily…Like the grownups, parents and guardians need to take their time out to know what works best for their child’s texture to enable it to thrive. If, as a parent/guardian, you’ve been struggling with understanding how to tend to your child’s hair, then you’re in luck.

Today’s article will focus on providing you with regimens specially crafted to your child’s texture needs so let’s get straight into it:

Fine Hair

Fine hair is hair that is smaller in thickness of individual strands than the average hair strands. If your child has this hair texture, you may notice that it is lightweight and lacks volume, even when the hair has density on the scalp. To deal with your child’s fine hair, here are three regimens that can help:

1. Shamwashing

A portmanteau of the words “shampoo” and “wash,” shamwashing is the process of getting rid of dirt, oils, and buildup that have accumulated on the hair and scalp over time by using a shampoo. While it is important to keep fine hair clean, as with any other hair texture, you must not overdo it.

Shampooing daily on your child’s fine hair can cause it to feel flat and lifeless. You can limit shamwashing to once or twice a week. When washing your child’s fine hair, you should use a volumizing shampoo as these contain proteins that help to lift the hair shafts and cause them to swell, thereby creating an illusion of fullness and thickness as opposed to a look that is flat and lifeless.

For an effective  shamwash on fine hair, follow these steps:

  • Section the hair into four or more sections.
  • Wet the hair and scalp with warm water to open up the follicles for easier cleansing.
  • Apply dollops of volumizing shampoo to the fine and rub the shampoo in until it begins to foam; make sure you focus on the scalp where all the dirt and grime are gathered.
  • Be careful that you’re using the skin under the fingernails and not the fingernails themselves as you don’t want to create cuts and bruises on your child’s scalp and hair.
  • Rinse out thoroughly.

2. Scalp Exfoliation

Over time, the scalp can be clogged with dead skin cells and dandruff (especially in the case of kids with fine hair which tends to produce more oil). While a shampoo can help cleanse the scalp as already pointed out, a scalp exfoliation goes the extra mile by detoxing the scalp of impurities, thereby allowing oxygen to get to the roots and promoting new growth and thriving hair. Exfoliating your child’s scalp is easy: section the hair and apply the scrub in gentle circular motions. Rinse off afterward.

3. Blowout for Volume

Let’s face it: the flat appearance of fine hair is not always flattering. To give your child’s hair a look of fullness, you can decide to style it in a blowout. A blowout helps to add body to the strands of the hair by creating an illusion of a fuller hairstyle to the eye, and this can be achieved by using a regular blow dryer or a round brush.

To blow out fine hair, ensure your child’s hair is freshly washed and clean. Towel dry with a microfiber towel or a T-shirt and apply leave-in conditioner to make it soft and hydrated. Follow this by sectioning the hair and combing through any knots and tangles. Spray heat protectant on the hair, turn the blow dryer’s setting to medium heat, and blow dry by lifting the roots up. Never blow dry dripping wet hair, as this can cause frizz and heat damage.

Wavy Hair

Wavy hair is a texture that is not fully straight or tightly curled. Like other hair textures, it also needs to be cared for to thrive. Here are three regimens you can adopt for a child with wavy hair:

4. Trimming

Image Source: @taty_froever

Of all hair textures, long hair is most susceptible to split ends. If your child’s hair is suffering from split ends, trimming is one effective way to deal with them. While you can get it professionally done, you can also do it yourself at home. To trim, you’ll need a pair of hair shears (using regular scissors can cause jagged ends and worsen the splits).

Start with clean, detangled hair coated with a leave-in conditioner for slip and softness. Split the hair into sections and cut half or one inch, depending on how far the splits are. Make sure the cuts are even. Comb and style as desired.

5. Protective Styling

Protective styles are most suitable when you want to give your child’s hair a much-needed break from constant styling. Not only do they reduce breakage, they also encourage new growth. To prep your child’s hair for a protective style, wash and condition it to cleanse your scalp and hair. Towel dry and leave to air dry or blow dry (use a heat protectant).

Section the hair and massage leave-in conditioner to soften the strands. Comb through each section to ensure the hair is free from knots and tangles. Oil the scalp with a lightweight hair oil to prevent dryness. Massage the oil into the scalp to stimulate blood circulation. Go ahead and style.

6. Taming Frizz

12 Simple Regimens to Style Your Kids Hair Across Every Texture

Another common problem with wavy hair is frizz, where individual hair strands spring up in multiple directions, giving the hair a rough look. To combat frizz, avoid using hot water to wash the hair, as this weakens the keratin balance and encourages the unkempt appearance of frizzy hair; use warm water instead.

After washing, avoid using cloth towels to dry your hair as they exacerbate the frizz situation; instead, use a T-shirt or a microfibre towel as they keep the frizz at bay by smoothing the cuticle down while speeding up drying time. When it’s time to comb, moisturize the waves as combing dry hair can result in frizz.

Curly Hair

Curly hair is hair that has patterns resembling the letter S. When properly cared for, it can be such a beauty to the eye, which is one way every parent/guardian would love for their ward’s hair to appear — beautiful. These three regimens can help you ensure your child’s curly hair is at its best:

7. Detangling

12 Simple Regimens to Style Your Kids Hair Across Every Texture

If there’s one thing many parents whose children have curly hair would agree on, it’s that this hair texture is prone to matting and tangles. Separating these tangles and knots requires patience and the right process because it can be painful, and your child may lose hair if you are not careful. Start by spraying the hair with a detangler or water and moisturizing cream.

Gently section the hair with your fingers, taking time to separate smaller parts from the whole. Spray more detangler for slip, and gently comb the hair with a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush from roots to tip. Repeat this process until the entire hair is free of tangles.

8. Flat Ironing

Image Source: @officialqueencocca

Because this particular regimen requires the use of a heat styling tool, you should do it for older kids who can sit still and are less afraid of the heat (of course, you’ll not be using a high heat setting either). Start this process by washing the hair, conditioning and gently detangling it. Towel dry and massage those tresses with leave-in conditioner for moisture and softness and follow this with heat protectant to prevent heat damage.

12 Simple Regimens to Style Your Kids Hair Across Every Texture

Leave hair to air dry or blow dry. Never flat iron wet hair, as this can reduce the effectiveness. Ensure the heat setting is perfect, not too high or too low, as the maximum pass for the iron in the hair should be two times. Split the hair into sections and flat iron from the roots to the top. In the end, you’ll get shiny, smooth, silky hair. You can also spray some hairspray for that extra shine and smell.

9. Night Care Routine

Many adults tend to ignore their hair at night, so it won’t be a surprise if parents forget to care for kids’ hair at night. While we are not judging (we get it, parenting demands a whole lot that it’s so easy to forget), we would like to stress that it is important for the hair to be in a nourished state while your child is asleep just as well as when they are awake.

12 Simple Regimens to Style Your Kids Hair Across Every Texture

The good news is the night regime does not require too many items or time from you. It basically follows the regular routine of splitting the hair into sections, spritzing with water, applying moisturizing cream and sealing with oil. You can then put the hair in braids or twists if not already in a protective hairstyle. Wrap with a silk or satin scarf so as to preserve the moisture throughout the night.

Coily Hair

Like all other hair textures, the tightest pattern of all, coily hair requires proper maintenance to keep healthy. Here are three regimens you can follow if your child has this hair pattern:

10. Hot Oil Treatment

12 Simple Regimens to Style Your Kids Hair Across Every Texture

This hair treatment provides the hair with many benefits, some of which include nourishing and adding strength to the hair strands, replenishing lost moisture, helping with blood circulation, and serving as a detangler. It can also be used as a pre-poo as it helps as a barrier against the ingredients in shampoos that strip off moisture.

Mix two or three hair oils of your choice in a bottle to do a hot oil treatment. Let the bottle sit in a bowl of hot water for five minutes to warm up. Bring the bottle out and apply it to your child’s hair, which you must have already sectioned. Cover with a hair bonnet for 30 minutes and rinse off.

11. Deep Conditioning

Deep conditioning is one effective way of getting your child’s hair strands to absorb moisture intensely. To start with, shampoo the hair. Then, split it into sections and massage dollops of deep conditioner into each section. Cover the child’s hair with a shower cap and leave it for 30 minutes. Rinse out with cool water. The result is softer, defined, well-moisturized hair.

12. The Green House Effect

Image Source: @naijahhairgrowthgal

Many parents will agree that when their child’s oily hair is in a state that does not retain moisture, it can be quite frustrating when it comes to detangling and styling. Here comes the greenhouse effect to the rescue. The GHE helps to stimulate sebum which is needed to keep the scalp hydrated, it also aids in detangling, detoxing and cleansing the hair.

Before doing this, you must understand that it may be uncomfortable for younger kids as the child will need to sleep in it overnight. It is recommended that you do the GHE on older kids who can be more perseverant. To do the GHE, you’ll only require items you already have in the house, such as a spray bottle of water, moisturizer, hair serum, a shower cap, and a bonnet.

Start by spritzing the hair with water, applying moisturizer, and detangling it in sections. Next, apply serum to every section and pull the shower cap over it, followed by the hair bonnet. Leave on overnight and take off the caps in the morning. The result is softer, bouncy curls.

Conclusion

Every child is unique, as are the needs of his/her hair texture. As parents and guardians, knowing what regimen works best for our wards’ hair is key to ensuring their tresses flourish. Thankfully, the simple regimens in this article will make it easier for you to tend to your ward’s hair.

25 Dreadlock Styles for Boys

Are you tired of having to cut, braid, twist, and style your son’s hair regularly? Then you might want to consider dreadlock styles. Also known as dreads or locs, these–although many people are born with them–are made by sectioning the hair, twisting or rolling each section, and leaving them to matte. There are numerous benefits to having your little man wear dreadlock styles.

First of all, they save you and him the stress of hair manipulation and constant styling which can result in breakage and shedding. Another reason is that dreadlock styles promote hair growth as there is less wear and tear which usually occurs from constant and incorrect hair manipulation and styling. 

Locs are also versatile when it comes to styling with many of these styles being what you can easily do at home such as the following below:

A frohawk is one bold and edgy hairdo that is just as perfect for kids as adults. Combining a mohawk and an Afro, this hairstyle exudes confidence and establishes presence. The frohawk originates from a mohawk, a hairstyle in which hair on both sides is shaved, leaving a conspicuous strip of hair running from front to back in the middle of the head.

However, in the case of a frohawk, the hair on both sides of the head is not shaven but instead slicked upward to meet the hair in the middle, just like a faux hawk. A frohawk and a faux hawk are quite similar; the only difference is that a frohawk must incorporate an Afro into the style.

Suppose you are considering this hairstyle for your little girl or boy. In that case, hair products like the Taliah Waajid Kinky, Wavy & Natural for Children Herbal Style & Shine, and the ORS Olive Oil Girls Fly Away Taming Edge Gel are some of the items needed to get started.

12 Black-Owned Barbershops to Visit For Your Next Haircut

Believed to have started in the 19th century, the backstory of how black barbers operated in the country is not filled with roses.

How to Prepare Your Child for Their First Protective Style

It’s your child’s first protective style, and you are excited but nervous about the process. You want your youngin’ to look good but not at the expense of putting them through discomfort. We’ve got you! In today’s article, we’ll take you through the necessary things to do to make sure your child enjoys their first protective styling. So, sit tight, and let’s do this.

1. INVOLVE THEM

Depending on the child’s age or how quickly they understand things, make them a part of the process. Show them cute hairstyles and help them select the one they like. When kids are involved in picking out their hairstyle, it can make them more excited to get their hair done.

2. GET THEM TO STAY STILL

Let’s face it, many younger kids are (hyper) active and do not like staying in one spot for long, and this can be frustrating whether you’re the one styling their hair or it’s at the hairdresser’s. Give them their favorite book or play cartoons on an iPad to get them to sit still. You can also sneak some snacks into their hands to get them to cooperate. It works like magic!

3. PREP THEIR HAIR

Ensure your child’s hair is clean and thoroughly detangled before you begin. This is because styling tangled hair is painful to the child, stressful to your arm, time-consuming, and all-around frustrating. So, that’s a total no. Dirty hair can cause itching, which is uncomfortable for your child and takes away from the fresh look of a new hairstyle.

4. BE GENTLE

When it comes to parting the lines, combing, and styling, you will have to be gentle, which may require more patience than usual. While we understand that you want the hairstyle to last for a long time so you don’t want to have to worry about doing their hair soon, you also don’t want your child in pain, which can be caused by pulling, twisting, braiding, or holding the hair too tight.

Styling the hair too tightly can also create little bumps on the tender scalp of your child. Don’t sacrifice comfort on the altar of long-lasting hair. Besides, except they’re older, kids will always be kids, including messing up their hair. Sorry, Mom, Dad, but that’s how kids are.

5. USE CHILD-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS

Do not use just any products on your child’s hair, as many products are formulated with harsh ingredients that can be detrimental to your child’s hair and scalp. Instead, go for child-friendly products that are gentle to your child’s hair.

6. AVOID USING HEAT TOOLS

Heat tools can damage the hair, but they can also burn your child’s hair and scalp. If the protective style your child is doing requires using hot water to straighten the ends of the hair, make sure you’re careful with it. The saying, “Beauty is pain,” does not apply to kids, so avoid it together if you can by using heatless methods.

7. DECORATE THE HAIR

After styling, decorate your child’s hair with ouchless bands, hair clips, barrettes, beads, and other colorful accessories that would animate the protective style. Children’s hairstyles should always look as lively and fun as can be.

8. LAY THEIR EDGES

This can be optional, but it is a great finishing touch to the hairstyle. It keeps flyaways in front neatly laid. It also adds beauty to the hairstyle.

9. HAVE AN AFTERCARE ROUTINE

As we said earlier, many younger kids tend to mess up their hairstyles because that’s just how kids can be. However, you can make your child’s protective style last longer by following up with an aftercare routine. You can moisturize the hair daily to keep the style looking fresh and use a soft brush and hair gel to tame flyaways.

For bedtime, wrap the hair up in a satin scarf or wear a satin bonnet on your child’s hair, as this helps to prevent matting, tangles, and frizz as they sleep. When it’s bathtime or shower time, have your child wear a shower cap to keep water splashes from getting into the hair and ruining the hairstyle. Finally, when it’s time to remove the protective style, do so gently, using a detangler to moisturize and help soften knots, making it easier to undo them.

Should You Invest in Hair Steamers? Felicia Jones Share Her Recommendations For Using This Tool

When it comes to curlies giving their strands some much-needed tender-loving deep conditioning treatment, hair steamers are part of the items that make the product list. As the name implies, a hair steamer is a haircare tool designed to open the hair cuticles, allowing for more effective penetration of haircare product ingredients to provide the hair with the utmost nourishment. Hair steamers benefit our strands in so many ways; it is no wonder they keep selling well on the market.

Should You Invest in Hair Steamers? Felicia Jones Share Her Recommendations For Using This Tool
Image Source: @hife3licia

To fully understand the importance of hair steamers to our hair, we spoke with ManeTrxx Founder and Licensed Cosmetologist, Felicia Jones to get some professional input. We’ve also included some popular hair steamer brands in this article that you should check out.

Could you please tell us about the different types of hair steamers suitable for curly hair?

My favorite type of hair steamer is a tabletop steamer from Amazon that comes with a hood attachment you can sit under or use the face steamer attachment to direct the steam where you need it. I especially like using the facial attachment when refreshing with steam. The Q Redew handheld steamer is also a great option if you prefer more control over your steam application. If all else fails, some people even grab their handheld clothing steamers, but just be sure to hold these further away because sometimes the temperatures are a little hotter than hair steamers.

What benefits do hair steamers like the Felicia Leatherwood Flaxseed Bonnet provide to the hair strands?

I love microwave heat caps with deep treatments or pre-poos to help give a more intense hair treatment. They are especially great for low-porosity hair that has a hard time absorbing products. High-porosity hair can get dry very easily, so doing intense deep treatments can help keep your hair hydrated.

With your experience, what would you say are the best practices to follow when using hair steamers?

Using steam is a great way to help stimulate growth, and is recommended vs constantly wetting your hair in between washes and allowing it to stay wet for long periods. Hair that stays wet too long is prone to a type of damage called hygral fatigue. Using steam allows you to refresh your products and loosen your curls that may have gotten stiff overnight without completely soaking them.

Steam also can help loosen up dirt and build up on the scalp when you use it with a pre-poo before cleansing your hair. I said previously I also think steam is great to help give more intense deep treatment when your hair is in need!

What are the maintenance requirements for hair steamers to ensure they remain efficient for an extended period?

Always empty any water in your steamer when finished to ensure you do not get mold or mildew. I also recommend using distilled water to avoid any mineral buildup you can get from tap water. Using a watered-down mixture of white vinegar and distilled water, you can clean your steamer once a month to ensure it’s running properly, but of course, always refer to your manufacturer’s instructions first!

Which Drying Method is Best For Your Texture?

After washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner, the next thing to do is get it dried. However, when it comes to drying, you want to avoid getting frizzy and tangled hair and hair breakage. This is because wet hair is weak, and what you do to it in that state (including how you dry it) can impact the hair. That’s why today, we will be helping you with the best methods for drying your hair. We’ve broken the methods down into different hair types – coily, curly, and wavy – so you can get the best possible options.

BEST METHODS FOR DRYING COILY HAIR

1. Stretch

IMAGE SOURCE: @HOPELAMOEN

If you have type 4 coils, one of the best ways you can get your hair dry is by stretching it, and you can do this by putting it in plaits or tying it with wool or thread. This method not only cancels heat application to the hair but also reduces breakage and tangles. Furthermore, it helps you easily detect if the ends of your hair are in a good state.

To stretch your coils, start by parting the hair into a minimum of six sections (the length or fullness of your hair determines the number of sections. For example, for thin or fine hair, you may need fewer sections, while for full hair, you may need more sections). The next step is to take a section of the hair and twist, braid, or tie with thread. Repeat this step for all the other sections and leave to air dry.

2. Blow Dry

This method is a way to get your hair dry fast but involves applying heat. As we have said many times (and we won’t get tired of saying it), exposing your hair to heat can lead to damage in the long run, and damaged strands are the last thing you want. But does this mean you should avoid using heat, especially since it’s faster? Absolutely not! It would help if you took precautions such as spraying your hair with a heat protectant, using a cooler setting on your blow dryer, and not putting the blow dryer too close to your hair.

After drying your hair, here are a few products we recommend you apply to your hair to replenish it with moisture.

BEST METHODS FOR DRYING CURLY HAIR

If you have type 3 curly hair, these methods are guaranteed to help you dry your hair:

1. Plop Your Hair

IMAGE SOURCE: @ITSBARBIEDELLE

The plopping method originated here on the NaturallyCurly forums and many curlies have since adopted it because of its benefits to their hair. Plopping is a great way of drying your curls because it not only cuts down on drying time but also eliminates the use of heat tools and reduces frizz. Another thing is that it allows for more curl definition and creates a lift at the roots of your hair.

To plop, start by spreading an oversized t-shirt or a large microfibre towel on your bed, table, or counter. Next, bend your head forward, letting your curls fall into the center of the t-shirt or towel. Follow this by rolling and wrapping the bottom of the t-shirt or towel around your head. Flip the other part of the t-shirt, wrap it around your head, and tie it in front. Leave for 10 – 20 minutes.

2. Use a Bonnet Hair Dryer

Image SOURCE: @BRICIA

This provides many benefits to your curls, including faster drying time, diffused heat (which reduces the risk of hair damage), and even product distribution, among others. To use the bonnet hair dryer, blot your hair first before placing the bonnet over your head, ensuring every part is covered and then strap it at the chin. Next, fit the mouth of your blow dryer into the hose connected to the bonnet dryer and turn on your blow dryer (remember to use a cooler setting). You’ll notice that the bonnet fills up as air comes into it. Leave for between 30 minutes to 1 hour.

We recommend using these products immediately after drying your hair to tame frizz and restore moisture.

IMAGE SOURCE: @SOPHIEMARIEGRAF

Air drying your wavy tresses is a simple, heat-free, damage-free way to get them dry, although it might take longer to do. Start by immediately blotting your soaking wet hair with a microfibre towel, scrunching your waves, and then leaving it to air dry.

2. Diffuse

https://www.tiktok.com/@keilanihair/video/7246519893544357166?_r=1&_t=8j4gwVk8BJ0&social_sharing=0

While a diffuser is not a fast way of drying your hair, it is a safe way of using heat to dry your hair. It also gives your hair more lift at the roots, reduces frizz, and enhances curl definition if you apply a curl cream or a mousse before diffusing. To diffuse, put your hair dryer setting on medium to low heat and hover it over your hair until it is fully dried.

Here are some products we recommend using for wavy hair immediately after drying:

Why the Bowl Method is One of TikTok’s Top Trends for Defined Curls

The curly community on TikTok has been abuzz for a while now with the latest hair trend on getting super defined curls, and that trending technique is the bowl method. One of the things that makes this trend so much talked about is that you only need a bowl of water to get it done. It requires zero heat and no complicated steps to follow.

The origin of this curl-defining technique trend is attributed to TikToker @curlyzia.xo, whose videos showing how to do the technique have gained millions of views. Since then, it has become the go-to of many naturalistas for enhancing their curls. The bowl method caters to all types of curls, from tight coils to wavy strands, and the result is soft, bouncy curls.

In today’s article, we’ll focus on this method’s effectiveness, how you can do it, and what products to use.

HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE BOWL METHOD FOR DEFINING CURLS?

https://www.tiktok.com/@sophiemariegraf/video/7184121297641737515?_r=1&_t=8isjHpjCNSH
IMAGE SOURCE: @SOPHIEMARIEGRAF

Many TikTokers and other curly hair sisters on the internet who tried this method have testified to its effectiveness in enhancing curl patterns in very simple steps. They also claim that the bowl method helps boost their curls’ volume while noticeably reducing frizz. The bowl method is also effective in helping hair with low porosity absorb moisture and products. Furthermore, it helps with getting products evenly distributed in every strand.

HOW TO DO THE BOWL METHOD

Now, while this is a simple process, the bowl method can take up more of your time than usual, so this is not something you want to do in a last-minute rush. Another thing to prepare for is that the bowl method can get pretty messy because you’re going to have water from your hair dripping all about your face, neck, body, and the floor, so you want to do this in the bathroom or somewhere else in the house that will be easier to clean up afterward.

To begin, make sure your hair is detangled and freshly washed. Apply a curl cream to your hair and brush to detangle and get the product evenly distributed in the hair. Next, fill a large bowl with water and place that right in front of you. Flip your hair forward and dunk it inside the water, making sure the body of your hair is fully absorbed in it. You can further raise the bowl up just so the hair close to your roots is completely soaked in it.

When that’s done, gently lift your head up, take out the hair from the bowl, and scrunch (that is, squeeze out the water from) your hair, starting at the ends and going up the body of your hair. After scrunching, release the hair gently from your grip and gently let it down. You’ll notice that your curls are starting to get defined.

Repeat this process of dunking and scrunching a few more times until you get your defined curls. Follow this up by using a towel to plop your hair or a diffuser to dry your hair. Plopping or diffusing can help to enhance your curls further and give them that extra volume when they are dry. You can also apply mousse to your strands to hold the curls in shape and for an extra bounce.

12 Non-Permanent Hair Color Products to Try in 2024

There’s no denying that dyeing one’s hair takes their look to a whole new level of refreshing and vibrancy. However, you don’t have to change your natural hair color permanently because you want to experiment with a new one. This is where semi-permanent hair colors come in — they allow you to explore as many different hair colors as you want within months because they don’t penetrate the hair shafts like the permanent hair color.

Another way semi-permanent hair colors benefit you, the user, is that these do not contain harsh chemicals, so you’re not worried about your hair experiencing damage. Also, if you’re someone who gets bored quickly with hairdos, you should be looking into non-permanent hair colors as they last from between two washes to a few weeks. Another thing to note is your natural hair color can determine the result of the dye, so if you don’t get your preferred outcome, you can always wash it out (although this largely depends on if the product specifies that you can).

Image Source: @skatealldae

Yet another upside of non-permanent hair colors is that they’re usually for at-home use so that you can color your hair by yourself, following the directions on the pack or with extra help from how-to videos for beginners on YouTube. Now, keep in mind that before you color your hair, do a strand test first and observe to see if you like the result. This saves you the trouble of washing off the color of your entire hair if you don’t like the outcome.

Now that we’ve discussed the benefits, here are some fantastic non-permanent hair color products to try out this year:

How Men Can Determine The Best Haircut For Their Face Shape

As a man, knowing your face shape goes a long way in determining which haircuts complement you. A haircut can either help elevate your facial features or give you an unflattering look. Although personal preference is important, and we agree that you should wear a haircut that makes you feel comfortable, a well-chosen haircut that goes in tandem with your face shape can help contribute significantly to your physical appearance and even boost your self-confidence.

In today’s article, we’ll discuss nine of these face shapes and give you haircut ideas that help accentuate and create a balanced look for all.

1. ROUND FACE SHAPE

We’re starting the list with the round-shaped face is marked out by soft curves that are almost equal in width and length. Specifically, this face shape is characterized by a gently curved forehead, full cheeks, and a soft jawline, resulting in a circular appearance. When it comes to selecting haircuts for men with this type of face shape, it is usually best to go with those that give the face a more angled look and make it appear longer or skinnier. Haircuts like the undercut, taper cut, pompadour, and middle-part haircut help add height and create the illusion of a longer face shape. These haircuts also help to complement and balance the round-shaped face.

2. OBLONG FACE SHAPE

If you’ve never heard of this specific face shape, the oblong is longer than in width. The vertical part of the face, which starts from the top of the head down to the chin, is conspicuously more elongated than its horizontal part, which is the cheeks and ears. Many men with oblong face shapes tend to have sharply angular features such as defined jawlines or temples.

When it comes to selecting a haircut for this particular face shape, it is best to go with those that help reduce the length of the face by creating an illusion of more width at the sides. Avoid haircuts that are too long and straight, as these can further result in a pronounced elongated look. Instead, go for bangs, side parts, Caesar cuts, or a clean-shaven head accompanied by a well-trimmed beard, giving the face a better-balanced look.

3. OVAL FACE SHAPE

In the world of face shapes, the oval face shape is considered the ideal face shape because of its balanced features. This is so because this face shape allows for many haircuts, which all suit it incredibly well. The oval face shape is characterized by a slightly longer face length, rounded cheeks, and forehead and jawline that are of similar width. As already said, men with oval-shaped faces can try out many different haircuts that suit their fancy. These haircuts include crew cuts, afros, low fades, high fades, taper fades, skin cuts, buzz cuts, fringe cuts, and side parts.

Named so after the pear fruit because of its shape, this is characterized by a narrow forehead and a wider cheeks and jawline. Due to their more pronounced width than the rest of the face, the cheeks and jawline tend to draw more attention. For men with the pear face shape, going for haircuts that pull more focus to the forehead while reducing the width or creating the illusion of a balanced lower part of the face is the best bet. Haircuts like textured layers, classic quiffs, and wispy bangs help to add volume to the top of the head. They also give the lower part of the face a slimmer appearance.

As the name implies, this is a face shape whose features are equal in length and width, resulting in a box-like appearance. The forehead is straight, while the jawlines and cheeks have strong defined lines. Men with this type of face shape should go for haircuts that help to give their face a softer appearance or even enhance their angular features. Haircuts like the buzz cut, flat top, undercut, and crew cut, among others, help to strengthen the angles of this face shape further. On the other hand, shag haircuts, layered cuts, and fringes tend to soften out the angular features of this face shape, giving it a balanced look.

Like a diamond, this face shape is slender at the temples and jawline, while the forehead, cheeks, and chin tend to be more angled. In a diamond face shape, the forehead is narrower, the cheeks are wider, and the chin is more pointed. When it comes to selecting haircuts that complement this face shape, it is better to go with those that balance out the angles at the forehead, cheeks, and chin. You want haircuts that will minimize the width of the cheeks but add volume and softness to the chin area. Haircuts that can do this include messy fringe, pompadour, buzz cut, side-swept bangs, quiff with a fade, or even a skin cut.

Although this is similar to the square face shape, it has a slightly more elongated length from forehead to chin. Its features include a straight, broad jawline, which is similar in width to the forehead and cheekbone. When selecting a haircut for the face shape, styles that add more width to the cheeks to balance the elongated length should be prioritized. Straight or blunt cuts can harden the features of this already-strong face shape. Hair cuts like side-swept bangs, wavy haircuts, fades, side parts, and buzz cuts, among others, can help to create an even more balanced look.

The heart-shaped face features a broad forehead that gradually narrows to a pointy chin, thus resembling a heart. The cheekbones and jawline in this face shape are rounded but not as wide as the forehead. When it comes to choosing a haircut that complements this face shape, it is best to consider the ones that reduce the emphasis on the forehead yet add width to the jawline and chin to even out the pointedness. You want to avoid hairstyles like blunt bangs or those that create more volume at the top, as they tend to further exaggerate the width of the forehead. Layered haircuts, fringes, and side-swept bangs, among others, are great options for this face shape.
