Because the return of the good weather (and the terraces) gives us a desire for renewal, we jump at the chance to give ourselves a new haircut. Here's an overview of the coolest hairstyles of the moment, depending on your face shape, so you can dare to do it with complete peace of mind.
For round faces, we dare: the parting in the middle
A round face is characterised by its shape, which is as long as it is wide, with a rounded chin and cheekbones. Some hairstyles can lengthen the face. To do this, it is important to keep the volume on top. To break up the round shape even more, lines can be created. The most stylish option for this spring is a parting in the middle, like that of BTS band member Jung Kook. The hairstyle favoured by the stars of the 1990s is constantly being revived by a younger generation who are always looking for a good timeless look. The result: the parting in the middle is once again the haircut for cool kids. So, we're taking advantage of the length that many people have become accustomed to during the holidays to get started. You trace your parting with a comb and leave the rest natural. The wet look gel has not (yet) made a comeback.
For square faces, we dare: the coloured buzzcut
With a very defined jawline, you have a square face. It's up to you how you want to play it. With volume on top, it is possible to attenuate these marked features. But you can decide to bet everything on your jawline that many envy. To do this, grab your clippers and go for a buzzcut. This means an extra short cut, perfect for spending a summer without worrying about your hair. Skater and Gossip Girl reboot star Evan Mock's is the coolest of the moment. His plus: a pink colouring that makes a difference. We don't hesitate to succumb, like him, to the call of an original colour. Short hair is the perfect place to try it, as it will take less time to get back to your natural colour. This makes it possible to try out as much eccentricity as possible.
For diamond faces, we dare: the graphic undercut
Cheekbones that are wider than your forehead and a rather square chin characterise a diamond face. Here, the aim of the hairstyle will be to soften the facial features in order to lengthen the face and give it a more oval appearance. It is therefore advisable to opt for an undercut, a cut where very short sides contrast with a real length on top. This type of haircut, which was very popular at the beginning of the last century, was brought back into fashion by Brad Pitt in 2014, with his role in the film Fury. To bring a breath of fresh air this spring, we copy the hyper graphic undercut of rapper Lil Nas X by marking the difference in length with a straight line. Rather than a gradient, we're going for a very marked contrast, the touch that transforms the cut into a stylistic statement.
For oval faces, we dare: the mini-mullet
If the face is elongated, with a rounded jaw and chin, it is considered oval. This shape is often seen as the easiest to style with. In other words, anything goes! An opportunity to experiment. What could be better than a mullet? The famous long neck haircut continues to fascinate as much as it is reviled. But singer Troye Sivan seems to have found a way to make it his own without getting too wet. With a hairstyle that emphasises the curly nature of his hair, he allows himself to keep a very slight length at the nape of his neck to add a little extra without looking like he's stepped out of an episode of Tiger King. The result is a look that is as casual as it is fashionable.
