|Gentlemen > How To Analyze Head/Face Shape and Hair
This page is basically written for men, but can definitely be read by ladies as well. It is for anyone who likes to keep his/hers hair short. Gentlemen, if you'd like more information on cutting techniques, coloring the hair, straightening or perming your hair (chemical treatment), please click on highlighted topics or the topics in the menu on the side panel. Remember pages mentioned above are not meant just for the ladies! There you may also check out professional terminology, that will help you in communicating with your stylist.
ANALYZE THE HEAD & FACE SHAPES
Everyone should analyze their face before making a decision what style of a hair cut one should get - if parted on a side, tousled on top, wearing it forward or back etc. Check your face shape (read about it on Face Shapes Page - it applies to everybody), your nose, jaw, eyes and eyebrows, and your hairline. And for men are also very important ears - with majority of men wearing short styles, you might have to keep them partially covered if they stick out or are big. You should also take into a consideration so called "cowlicks", as they will not do what you want your hair to do. In this situation you have to go with the flow... All cowlicks on top of your head should be kept longer as they will not stick up.
ANALYZE THE HAIR
After you examined your face, it its a time to look closely at your hair. Is it fine, normal or coarse. Is it straight, wavy or curly. What color is it? And what about a density of your hair? You can have all different combinations of all the hair types I mentioned here on the page. All this will influence making a decision what kind of a hair cut you'll get. Your personal hairdresser should help you make the correct decision.
