By Abraham Co-Founder & CEO of FITTED October 1, 2019

When choosing any beard or hairstyle, you want to take into account your physical attributes.

Triangular faces are generally quite long, and widest at the jaw, then taper up to the forehead.

If you have a triangular face shape, haircuts that add width to your face without height are your best options. You want to use the width of your hair to balance off the width of your jawline.

Pro tips to consider

  • Haircuts with longer sides work well for you as they add width to to the upper half of your head
  • Avoid haircuts with super short sides and a lot of volume as they will add extra visual length, making your face appear even longer than it naturally is
  • Swept bangs, angular fringe and messy looks help to decrease the visual length of your face, they’re also especially helpful if you have a receding hairline
  • Your beard style and haircut are a complimentary pair. Take a look at our beard styles for triangular face shapes.

General best practices

  • Think about how much time you have to devote to a styling your hair on a daily basis. The shorter your hair, the easier it’s going to be to maintain
  • Think about the formality level you need for your work. Longer and relaxed styles may not be the best option if you work in a business formal environment (i.e. lawyer, finance or similar)
