Hey all,

I have had long hair long enough. too make a long story short, if i got short hair i could eliminate most of the problems i have with long hair. im just wondering how short is too short for a round faced fat man? actually i think my face just looks round because i have had my hair hanging in my face for so long. when i was messing around and combing my hair back, i actually had a longer face than i thought. my hair is thinning too by the way. i have attached a pic of my ugly mug. i usually wear glasses too. square-ish shaped ones.

Take one more picture...pull your hair back, and let us see your hairline.  Show us what we have to work with.


You don't look like you have a round face.  It's just soft because of the weight.  Once we figure out your underlying face shape, we can proceed from there.


The "ideal" face shape is considered to be oval.  So any style that makes your face and head look more oval will be a good choice.


How short were you thinking about?

Cant take a pic now due to me being at work but here is what im thinking about styling it like. just a messy look. kind of like charles trippy (if you know who that is) i will take another pic and post it as another reply to your comment.

Your hairline is higher than his (so is mine), and in your first photo your hair's texture seems to be relatively fine.


While I like his style, on him, I'm not sure it would work for you.


Looking at your face, you seem to have a somewhat diamond shaped face.  Your cheekbones are extremely wide and pronounced.  You seem to have a blend of diamond shaped and inverted triangle, when you take into account your hairline.  It's a bit soft because of the weight, but that doesn't change the shape.  So, let's go to the chart.



As you can see, on the chart it shows two hairstyles that work with those shapes.  


Men's styles tend to try for a slightly more rectangular oval, whereas women's styles tend towards a rounder oval, but think oval for the overall silhouette.


Each of the examples on the chart is relatively close clipped.  The diamond has more volume on the upper left and right, to "fill in" the pointiness on top of his head, so that the silhouette approximates a more oval shape.  The inverted triangle naturally has more width on the top, so it needs to make it look narrower...so it's cut high and tight on the sides to minimize the appearance of the extra width.
