Elegant Haircuts for Guys with Square Faces

Elegant Haircuts for Guys with Square Faces

Faces have shapes? Of course, they do! The dimensions of your face will have an impact on which hairstyles suit you best. A talented, trained barber such as those found in our shops can expertly analyze yours to advise you on the best looks for your locks.

Comb Over Hair

What length do I need to do comb-over Haircut?

One of the more contemporary trends is an undercut comb over which combines the traditional horizontal direction of the style with the fresher, edgier undercut haircut. With scissor cut sides of around 1.5 inches in length gradually tapering towards the neck.

How to ask your barber for the comb-over haircut?

Ask your barbers to use clippers or scissors to cut the back and sides to a lower gradient than the rest of your hair. While you might not have to touch the top at all, a small amount of snipping may be required to give the desired shape.

What to use to maintain the comb-over haircut

Use pliable Clay by PMB, of course! To apply, rub a small amount of the styling product between the fingers and work from root to tip for a robust and matte hold.

Our Pliable Clay gives definition to short textured hair and creates styles that can be re-worked throughout the day.

 Side Swept with Part Hair

What length do I need to achieve a side-swept look with part haircut?

For a Side Swept with part Haircut, ask for a “Number 2 Haircut”, it’s one of the most famous clipper sizes for fade haircuts. Not too short or long, 1/4 of an inch in length, allowing for a fuller hairstyle that doesn’t expose the scalp.

How to ask your barber for a side-swept with part Haircut?

Ask for the guard length you want on the top of the back and sides, and to maintain length on the side where your parting is – this will help emphasize the clean look of the parting. Then, it should fade down from there.

What to use to maintain a side-swept with part Haircut? 

Use Pompadour Paste; it gives medium to firm hold, plenty of natural shine and texture to the hair.

Our Luxury Pompadour Paste is a flexible fibre gum that manipulates and separates the hair into the desired style.

Buzz Cut Hair

What Length Do I Need to Get Buzz Cut Haircut?

For a Buzzcut, you should ask for a number 4 cut, which leaves hair 1/2-inch-long, making it the medium length of the clipper guards. With the four size, you can start to get a brush or crew cut, which is like a buzz cut but include a skin fade on the sides and longer hair on top. This works well for both thick and thin hair.

How to Ask Your Barber for a Buzz Cut Haircut?

You should ask for a number 4 cut. The buzz cut is probably the most low-maintenance and easy men’s haircut to get. Some guys buzz their hair at home using quality clippers.

What to Use to Style the Buzz Cut Haircut?

We suggest using texture enhancer by Pall Mall Barbers, a resinous styling product that is suitable for short hair. It helps both thicken and add texture at once, giving the hair a strong yet supple hold with a matte finish.

Our Luxury Texture Enhancer is best used in short hair and helps both thicken and add texture.

How to create the perfect hair-care routine

Gentleman never underestimate the importance of a haircut. Your choice of hairstyle is pivotal in the way the world perceives you.

Shakespeare’s Polonius may have professed that the apparel oft proclaims the man (clothes make the man). Yet, he neglected to consider what his entourage saw of him during his self-absorbed monologue.

Step One: shampoo 

Choose shampoo and conditioner wisely, for dry hair look for moisturizing or hydrating products that contain oils, Argan Shampoo by PMB is designed specially to improve luster and hair strength, while leaving hair smooth and moisturized.

For oily or excellent hair, look for clarifying products such as Tea Tree Shampoo and Tea Tree Conditioner, which hydrate the hair while relieving itchy and flaking scalps. Be sure to use warm or cool water instead of hot.

Step Two:

 Use a gel or pomade, but not too much. If you like a neat style, use a pomade while your hair is still wet as it can help your hair look freshly groomed throughout the day.

Step Three: 

 Comb your hair gently but thoroughly after applying the product.

Step Four: 

 Maintain longer styles. If your hair is longer than an inch or two, you’ll need to take a few extra steps to make sure it stays in good condition and looks great.

Step five:

 Take regular trips to the barber shop; a great routine won’t make a difference if you are not visiting Pall Mall Barbers now and then for top-ups and tips.
