MEN'S HAIR: STYLING YOUR HAIR TO SUIT YOUR BUILD

Your body type is one of the most important factors in choosing your next do.

It is very important that your hair is proportional to your body. Let's say you’re a 5’8 male with an athletic build. If the sides and top of your hair are cut round, this will make your appearance a little bit more round. Josh, a 6’2 male with sharp features, has his hair styled slicked back on the sides with round body on top. This elongates his appearance and softens his sharp and striking facial features.

MEN'S GUIDE TO HAIR BASED ON BODY TYPE

SLIM, LANKY BUILD (ECTOMORPH)

Keep your hair cut so that you have volume. You can achieve this with a classic cut, with an inch on the sides and about two inches on the top. This elongates your overall look and frames your face. STYLING TIP: Use Barro clay to create a firm and classic style with flexible hold.

RECTANGULAR SHAPED, ATHLETIC BUILD (MESOMORPH)

 Cut your hair closer to the scalp on the sides with a bit of length on top and lots of texture, think military cut. This brings structure to your face. STYLING TIP: Use clay or salt spray for texture and hold.

ROUND, STOCKY BUILD (ENDOMORPH)

Keep your length on top with lots of texture, while keeping your hair tidy and clean on the sides with a very well defined hair line. This makes it all about clean, sharp lines. This frames your face, giving you a sharper look. STYLING TIP: Go for a grooming cream or clay that will help your hair look structured and clean without the stiffness of a gel or spray.
