How to Match Facial Hair Style to Face Shape. Normally a person's face shape is a large consideration when choosing a head hairstyle. However, it is equally important for men when choosing which way to style facial hair. For example, facial hair in the right proportion and area can dramatically minimize undesirable attributes and highlight desirable ones. Ensure the proper facial hair style by considering the following guidelines.
Minimize the look of your receding hairline with a mustache. This directs attention away from your forehead and draws the eyes toward the bottom half of your face and outward.
Beef up a tiny, weak jaw line with a beard or goatee. This not only disguises a softer jaw line, but adds bulk to the chin area.
Slim down a round face with a short beard or a well-maintained mustache. This adds definition and shape to a not-so-shapely face.
Offset skinny lips, high foreheads or large noses with a thin mustache and a triangle patch of hair under the lower lip. The extra hair on top and bottom adds balance to such facial features.
Experiment with any face shape if you have a square jaw line. Square faces are ideal for experimentation.
Balance a sharp nose or small mouth with or goatee. You could also try a very skinny mustache, though it may not be the most current style out there. Think Clark Gable.
Pep up a mature, sagging facial shape with a closely clipped beard or five o'clock shadow. This adds softness and disguises any hanging skin.
