Best haircut for the male with a round face

Before any round-faced man finds that one haircut that is best suited for him, he’ll have no other choice but to try out quite a number of them. Thankfully, there are more than enough haircuts that look hella good on round-faced males, each appealing to each one of them differently. Some of these haircuts include the following:

1. The brush-up haircut

The brush-up haircut is one of those all-time favorite haircuts for any round-faced male for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it is hella easy to pull off. Secondly, the crown-like volume of hair resting on top of his head will have that desired elongation effect on the round face while the sides are trimmed to size.

2. The high-volume haircut

The high-volume hairstyle for men is almost similar to the brush-up coif. The only difference is that the high-volume haircut leaves much more hair volume on top. This means the men donning this haircut enjoy more facial elongation, making it a more appropriate haircut for men with bigger, more rounded faces.

3. The vertical haircut for men

Another awesome haircut for males with round faces that effectively elongates and therefore giving a round face shape is none other than the vertical haircut for men. To pull this look off, the man has to comb thick volumes of his hair upwards while the hair on the sides is combed backward. This will end up giving his round face a “block” kind of look. This haircut also goes well with a beard.

4. The elegant fringe haircut

The elegant fringe haircut is perfect for round-faced men who have no problem connecting with their feminine side. It involves loosely tying his thin, curly hair at the back giving it a little bit of volume while allowing some to lay loosely on the forehead. Expect this coif to also look good with a good chin of beard. This haircut also looks good on guys with naturally straight hair.

5. The high volume undercut

Just like the name suggests, the high-volume undercut is achieved by first trimming the sides then allowing a huge volume of hair to rest on top of the head. This is meant to allow the long strands of hair to sort of blunt the roundness of the wearer’s face. The thick hair on top for his head will then be combed backward in order to complete the charm.

6. The comb-over haircut

This is arguably the easiest coif any round-faced male can pull off with no fuss at all. All he needs to do is learning how to comb his hair evenly and in different directions. He’ll start by combing the hair on top of his head to one side then comb the hair on the sides backward.

7. Faux Hawk, the best haircut for the round-faced male

The Faux Hawk coif is one of those distinct hairstyles that looks hella good on men with a knack for adventure. To achieve this look, the man will start by shaving off the sides then comb the top vigorously, leaving it looking like flames of some sort. Thankfully, this haircut is very easy to maintain. That’s why it comes highly recommended for young, busy men who are free-spirited.

8. The vertical style coif

Unlike most of the haircuts on this list, the vertical style coif doesn’t involve any shaving. All a man needs to do is learn how to comb in order to achieve the desired coif that’ll, in turn, give his face shape. To achieve this look, he’ll have to comb the thick head of hair on top of his head upwards while the hair on his sides backward.

9. The angular fringe and beard

For this haircut to make a male’s round face look a tad thinner, his thick head of hair will have to work hand in hand with his thick chin of beard – if “thick chin of beard” is actually a thing ha-ha. He’ll then allow his thick volume of hair curly hair to rest on his forehead before shaving off the sides.

10. The classic pompadour haircut

The classic pompadour haircut is one of the best haircuts as it suits just about any man with a handsome, round face. And apart from being timeless, the classic pompadour haircut is always appropriate for just about any informal occasion.

This version of the pompadour looks good on any round-faced male, with or without a beard. To achieve this amazing hairstyle, one has to visit the barbershop for a fade on the sides. He can then have the thick volume of hair resting on top of his head combed backward.

13. The messy, asymmetrical fringe haircut

This haircut also allows a man to effectively touch base with his feminine side. It pretty much involves combing his thick head of hair evenly throughout his head, allowing some hair over his face and eyes. This will effectively alter his face shape for the better.

14. The spike line-up haircut for men

In order to achieve this look, a man has no other choice but to seek out the services of a really talented barber. The first step will involve the careful trimming of the beard as well as the sides, leaving a thick volume of hair sitting comfortably on top of the head. This thick volume of hair will then be combed upwards and in the end looking like thin spikes on top of his head.

15. The simple hair and beard cut
