You have an oval face, you are one of the lucky ones, between a round and square shape, it offers you a wide choice of beard and hair styles. Everything is possible whether it is a long beard, short beard or a mustache as well as a cut for long or short hair. Your oval shape therefore already offers you a certain balance that you just need to take care of.

🧔🏻‍♂️ Our advice for your beard : Your face shape therefore allows you to try and adopt all kinds of beards, so we have put together our selection for you: short beards such as 3-day or one-week beard, a well-sculpted beard such as the Woodcutter cut, the beard collar and all forms of mustache: chevron, horseshoe, fine ringlet and handlebar mustache. However, we do not recommend overly full beards, as goatees and goatees can distort the shape of your face.

💈 Our advice for your hair: As with the beard and mustache, your face shape allows you to wear everything. The best thing is to wear your hair on your forehead to create movement and volume. Opt for a classic cut, short in the back and sides with length at the top. Turn to cuts such as Mad Men or Side Part.

The particularity of round faces is that there are no angles my Dear Watson, so it is up to you to choose a beard and hair cut in order to create angles while rebalancing the proportions of your face.

🧔🏻‍♂️ Our advice for your beard : For your beard and mustache we therefore advise you to work the angles and sides while creating volume towards the bottom of the face in order to slightly stretch it, breaking the rounded effect of the cheeks to chin. We will advise you to take good care of the hair on your neck and leave this area clean. For this we therefore recommend short beards such as three-day beard. On the contrary, it is not recommended to wear a beard or mustache that is too thick and full on the cheeks as well as a beard collar which will accentuate the round shape of your face. So turn to beards such as the Nicolas II or a Medium Ducktail

💈 Our advice for your hair: To help you structure your face, we suggest you opt for a style that adds volume to your hair while paying attention to keeping the edges shorter so as not to accentuate the roundness of your face .

With a square shape, your features are very angular, so we will seek to round certain parts of your face in order to create a new harmony.

🧔🏻‍♂️ Our advice for your beard: With a square shape, we mainly recommend sticking with a short beard or any type of mustache, including a goatee or goatee. If you want to be tempted by a long beard, you will have to opt for a beard that will pull your face down and that does not have too much volume on the sides. The Apron style, Long Hipster and the Nicolas II are the ones that would suit you best.

💈 Our advice for your hair: Keep your hair mid-length to long to maintain volume and not keep too much volume on the sides. As with your beard, we want to break up this square side and therefore add more volume to the top of your head than to the sides. The Side leaves with its cut styled on the side with its marked parting faded to white which will therefore elongate your face. Just like the Side part, the High Side part is an option offering more volume and height, allowing you to grow taller just like your face. If you want to keep more volume on the side you will lean more towards a Mad Men style with its gradient cut with scissors, retro and elegant.
