Profile

Name: David
Face Shape: oblong
Complexion: white
Eye Color: blue
Hair Texture: medium
Hair Density: medium to thick
Hair Elasticity: straight
Current hair length: short to medium

David has asked for our help telling us that he is "Open to anything" and that his issues are a long face with a big forehead. As for color, he'd prefer natural, but "with or without highlights is fine". He is looking to change his style up a little and is not sure if his current style is too long as he "sometimes feels a little 'bushy'".

1. David's Choice: Men's Short
 

David hairstyles number 1

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, round, square, heart, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: low
Time: 5-10 mins
Techniques: natural
Products: moulding cream

Hair Consultant:

This is a nice and simple to style razor cut that will help eliminate some of the "bushy" thickness in David's hair. My only problem with it is that the cut creates height on top and therefore makes Davis's oblong face shape appear even longer. The short nature of this cut does nothing to hide what David calls his big forehead. Blonde highlights add further texture and interest to this cut.

Verdict:

This is the wrong shaped cut for David and has too much height, however, I do like the color.

 

2. David's Choice: Men's Short
 

David hairstyles number 2

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, diamond, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling

Maintenance: low
Time: 5-10 mins
Techniques: blow-dry:
Products: mousse, moulding cream

Hair Consultant:

This is a good hairstyle choice from David. The top heavy layers along with the side part create width which suits longer face shapes like David's best. This look is easy to style and maintain and the color choice is also fine. I like the blonde highlights on top because they add definition and sophisticated character to what would otherwise be a very plain look.

Verdict:

A good choice, the shape of the cut is correct while the color brings it to life.

 

3. David's Choice: Men's Short
 

David hairstyles number 3

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, round, square, heart, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: low
Time: 5-10 mins
Techniques: blow-dry
Products: gel, gel wax

Hair Consultant:

I believe that this Mohawk shaped hairstyle adds further height and length to David's already long oblong face shape. What he needs is to add width not height. With this type of hairstyle, the color needs to be somewhat outrageous. Either very light, bright or dark.

Verdict:

The wrong shape that accentuates height not needed while the color is just flat.

 

4. Hair Consultant's Choice: Owen Wilson
 

David hairstyle number 4

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, diamond
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: medium
Time: 10-20 mins
Techniques: blow dry
Products: mousse, moulding cream

Hair Consultant:

I like the look of this hairstyle on David. For a start it provides width through the sides balancing out his normally long face shape while the front bangs also help to shorten the vertical length. This casual look is easy to maintain and achieve but he will need to grow the sides and back down first. The lighter overall color with added highlights also suits David's fair/white complexion to a tee. According to David's before shot, his hair appears to have strong growth patterns forward and across, just what is needed with this look. It's far easier working with growth patterns rather than struggling against them.

Verdict:

My Favorite! I love the free flowing shape and also the color. The bangs will make David feel more comfortable as well. It's definitely my pick in the medium straight range.

 

5. Hair Consultant's Choice: Leonardo DiCaprio
 

David hairstyles number 5

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: medium
Time: 10-20 mins
Techniques: blow dry
Products: mousse, moulding cream

Hair Consultant:

This elegant precision cut is just the right shape with the off centre part and heavy top adding width and balance to David's face. The nature of the cut enables the hair to simply fall into place making styling quick and easy. The color's medium brown base with blonde highlights on top are a must for David, adding texture while suiting his fair complexion. If David is contemplating growing his hair out longer, then this hairstyle is the right shape to do it from.

Verdict:

More conservative, but the right shape and color for David's hair type and complexion. He can't go too far wrong with this hairstyle! Longer hair on top in particular is definitely better for him.

 

6. Hair Consultant's Choice: David Beckham
 

David hairstyles number 6

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, diamond, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: low
Time: 5-10 mins
Techniques: natural
Products: mousse, gel wax

Hair Consultant:

If David wants to try something a little more casual, then this grungy style would be a good option. The length in the sides helps bring width and balance to the overall shape while the heavy graduated top layers just fall into place. The color is ideal for David's complexion, in particular the heavy blonde sliced areas on top that add definition and contrast. He will need to grow his hair down but it's worth it for sure!

Verdict:

The shape is right as well as with the color. This is a great look if David's in a less conservative frame of mind.

 

7. Hair Consultant's Choice: Jon Bon Jovi
 

David hairstyles number 7

Suitable for:

Face Shapes: oval, oblong, square, heart, triangular
Hair Texture: medium, thick
Hair Density: medium, dense

Styling:

Maintenance: high
Time: 20-30 mins
Techniques: blow-dry
Products: mousse, moulding cream

Hair Consultant:

I like the look of this casual everyday style on David. The length through the back and sides creates width, which is exactly what is needed, while the bangs draw attention to David's eyes. Razor cutting the ends will help to eliminate weight and to add texture for a messy result. The color is the right tone and level for fair and light complexions. For David, I would suggest some extra highlighting through the top to create more interest. Definitely the most outrageous selection.

Verdict:

A very masculine style which oozes ruggedness and sex appeal. I like it and it certainly works for David.
