Sideburns can be the perfect complement for your hairstyle, but if you’re like many men out there, you’ve avoided keeping the facial hair because you think it’s hard to pull off. Fortunately, New Paradise Men’s Spa, the top day spa for men in New York City, is here with some guidance on how to groom sideburns to look great for your specific facial shape.
For round faces, sideburns can do a lot toward making your face appear longer, drawing the eye from top to bottom instead of left to right. Don’t go too long, though—shoot for having them end at the base of your earlobes.
Wide faces with a strong jawline can also benefit from longer sideburns. Keep in mind, it’s always easier to start long and trim up until you like the length; if you cut it too short, you’ll have to wait for them grow out.
If your face has a wide jawline but seems to get narrower toward your brow, you likely have a triangle-shaped face. The best sideburn style is to taper the sideburns as they go down your face.
The easiest shape of all, oval faces don’t have any odd proportions that need sideburns to help even out. If you have an oval-shaped face, your best bet is to end the sideburns at the middle of your ears.
For long, rectangular faces, the last thing you want to do is draw attention to the length. Keep the facial hair short to help give some symmetry back to your face.
Whatever face shape you have, the most important thing is to keep your sideburns well groomed, avoiding a bushy and unkempt look. And for the rest of your face, consider getting a men’s facial from New York’s best day spa: New Paradise Men’s Spa. From microdermabrasion to invigorating ginseng facials, the day spa will provide the treatments to have you looking your best. For more information, visit their website or call (646) 559-1621.
