Long fringes will hide your forehead that will make it similar to the width of your cheeks.  The hair on the side will give your temples a wider look and this will make your face look round and almost oval in shape.

Growing a short or medium beard will help to hide your narrow jaw-line and pointed chin. Beards will make it look sharper and edgier.

Side Parted

Having long hair on the top of your forehead will make your face look longer but combing it back side-parted will distract the attention given on the width of the forehead. The longer hair on the sides will widen the temples which will create an illusion of having an oval face shape.

You can also grow your beard for a more stylish look. This will hide some details of your jawline and your pointed chin.

Long Push Back

With this hairstyle, the hair is combed back for 2 reasons. First, the long hair on the top elongates your features and second, the obvious hairline adds a nice angular dimension into it.

With these attributes, it makes the forehead narrower and the longer sides enhance the width of the temples down to the jaw which makes the shape look from heart to square shape.


If you want to have a masculine look, this hairstyle would suit you. The cropped hair and the framed sides widen the temples and it hides the width contrast between the wide forehead and the narrow cheeks.

The long top extends the height of the face and the hairline angles make the face shape rectangular. Grow a nice angular beard for a more manly look.

You can keep the top and the sides longer to make your face elongated and your temples wider.

Slick Back

The slicked back hairstyle is similar to the side swept. The difference is that in the slick back the hair is combed backward from the forehead while in side swept the hair is combed vertically to the parted line.

This hairstyle can make your face longer because of the combed back hair and the noticeable hairline adds some nice angles to your face. This also goes right with a short beard that makes your jawline prominent.

Spiky Hair

The spiky hairstyle is one of the best hairstyles for men since it can be easily styled and can be done in any hair types. For the heart-shaped face, the spikes will add some length to your face and it makes the forehead narrower.

This will add a little bit of maturity to your cool vibe. It needs a deep parting on one side and the remaining hair swept to the other side. This would be perfect for a formal or casual occasion.
